Hilton Lake Taupo

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for a week in June and loved it. We were upgraded as a Diamond member and were floored by how nice the "apartment" was. Full laundry? Seriously? So nice. I had read complaints about the breakfast and were prepared to go elsewhere if necessary, but if the complaints had merit at the time, the management has certainly addressed the issues. The breakfasts were great. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 very comfortable nights. We were given an upgrade which was very nice . We didn't have a lake view but th st meant we DID get the morning sun which meant we could sit on our balcony with a morning tea admiring the view. Very nice. Great service at reception from various people including a trainee and the manager or deputy (who helped us with a coach trip). Only downside was it being slightly further from the centre of town than we had hoped (2 miles perhaps?) so we got a taxi at night. Really nice bar and restaurant on site. Taupo is a great base for visiting the thermal sights locally. We will come back.

The Hilton at taupo was a fabulous venue for.a wedding we had travelled from the UK to attend. Excellent and friendly staff, spacious and extremely comfortable rooms, great food (and drink). So good we extended our stay to be able to make the most of the great location and explore the many things to do in the area. Highly recommended!

As part of a "family" wedding we spent 6 nights at the Hilton Taupo and can confidently say this was one of the best hotel stays we've had. Tino and the staff were fantastic in all respects and should be congratulated for their service, impeccable interpersonal skills, and generally making us feel like we were part of the family of Hilton Taupo. I'd like to think we would be back but that depends on us visiting NZ again.

enjoyed my stay at Hilton. good service - staff were very helpful, room was clean and tidy. bed was comfortable. appreciate the bathroom and kitchen goodies. only stayed one night, apart from the weather everything was good

Thirty four people attending a long weekend of business and social catch-up of colleagues from around New Zealand. Well coordinated by Ana Hutchinson of Hilton with accommodation and dinners well planned. Venue for meetings were great. Cold and rain weather but watm interiors. Great staff.

Returned to lake Taupo, this time in winter. Once again facilities were exceptional. Can't get better views over the mountains in the morning and the sunsets are spectacular. Had the full breakfasts in the restaurant each morning and more than happy with the service staff and food choices.

Great hotel massive rooms. My ground floor room had a patio area as well. The room has a safe for personal items with a shower and bath. Bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean and tidy. Although slightly out of town the views are fantastic overlooking the lake.

We stayed for 6 nights and spent each day on day trips to all the amazing sites within easy reach. On check-in the staff offered us a very reasonable upgrade to a 1 bedroom unit and we couldn't have been happier. It was absolutely incredible and we had so much room as well as amazing facilities. The breakfasts were the best we've had and there was nothing we could fault.

A lovely relaxing place to stay with delicious room service food.A good stop over point when travelling up or down the North Island. Except chseck the temeprature of the pool before you dive in as It is evidently thermally heated and can be very chilly especiallyu for children.
