Beechtree Motel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel recommended by taupo information center. Limited accommodations available in taupo - school holidays and road closures. Brechtree was very good. Upgraded to a room with spa Barth and staff all very helpful. Great stay close to the center of taupo.

Becoming an annual pilgrimage with a reunion dinner to celebrate friendship and this year backed by a family reunion, Beechtree suits our accommodation needs perfectly. The two-bedroom unit with sunny terrace and ample sitting space and kitchen ideal as a gathering place, and it's so handy to town and the lake. Well serviced and all the extras one needs.

My wife and I and teenage son occupied a 2 bedroom apartment for our 4 night stay in Taupo during our 2 week visit to the North Island from Sydney. The decor was fresh and modern, and the apartment was very clean and well appointed with kitchenette with microwave and cooktop. The room is serviced daily. The Wifi was free and certainly above average and worked very well. No internet issues at all. The motel is an easy 15 minute walk from the centre of town and in a reasonably quiet street (we were never bothered by street noise). There is also a 4 Square Supermarket, Green Grocer (Fruit Shop), Butcher and Cafe across the road. It is difficult to find something negative to say about the Beechtree and it is probably a worthy alternative to some of the more highly priced accommodation overlooking the lake.

Stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment at this Motel. Overall a very good experience with a nice and warm welcome at the reception, clean and well maintained rooms and close proximity to the Taupo city center. The apartment comes with a small kitchenette and all necessities there. Rooms were outfitted with electric blankets or fan heaters which were needed during the cold nights we had. The bathroom came also with a Jacuzzi. We did not make use of the offered breakfast service, but that is an option to consider.

The Beechtree Motel was very charming and just a short walk into town for dinner and some nightlife. The rooms were clean and spacious and check-in went very smoothly with friendly service. The surrounding area is very quiet since it's more towards a residential neighborhood which was very nice. The lake is just a short distance away as well if you're looking to take a lakeside stroll.

Stayed for 1 night in April and had a very enjoyable stay. Rooms were clean, a good size and included basic kitchen facilites. The lady on the desk was very pleasant and check in / out was efficient. We had paid extra for a "Lake view" room but could barely see the lake from the window, wouldn't bother with this next time. The motel is within walking distance to the shops and restaurants - it would probably take around 15-20 mins. Overall good value accommodation in Taupo.

Great for a one night stay on our way through to Auckland. Rooms were very clean with good facilities (heat pump, electric blankets, sky, free wifi, plenty of parking, big comfy beds, extra towels & pillows, big bath tub). Nice little touches such as a bottle of milk and additional toiletries and friendly staff to check us in. Check out was 10am which is earlier than most.

We enjoyed our stay in this motel. We had a ground floor room with a courtyard. The room was very nice. Clean, modern and it was good to have the little courtyard to sit outside. Also it was nice to look out onto instead of just another building or wall. The motel was close to restaurants and to the lake. There is a small supermarket across the road. My only criticism is that the laundry is a bit expensive at $10 per load but does include deterhent and the use of the dryer. I would reccomend this motel to anyone wanting accomodation in Taupo.

My wife, 4 friends and I had the pleasure of staying at the Beechtree in early May. Unfortunately, it was just 1 night. We arrived in the mid afternoon, with plans to spend the afternoon cycling around Taupo. As luck would have it, the wind really picked up -gale force nearly, accompanied by some rain squalls, so that was the end of our plans to go cycling. After driving around and checking out a few interesting places, we ended up spending a couple of hours in a nearby hot springs pool. That was magic, but a different review subject. We booked into the motel. The receptionist was lovely and very helpful. The rooms were large enough, and well appointed. Ours had a good shower and bathroom. Our room was warm, and the TV simple enough to use. The bed was excellent - a wonderful pillow-top and king size. The pillows were also sensible, with a choice of soft and flat, or firm. We were in a 10-seat minibus, but it was able to fit undercover outside the room. The motel even provided an ice machine, and had a very good fresh-ground coffee machine available, where one could purchase a cheap but very nice cappuccino - a real plus as far as I was concerned. Can highly recommend the Beechtree Motel

Thanks so much Beechtree for a lovely, hassle free stay. Our room was clean and modern, and perfect for 3. The facilities for cooking and longer stays were great. I wish we could have stayed longer and would not hesitate to book this hotel again.
