                  Good location close to the lake, good facilities, even shared bathroom was ok and clean. Would come again.

                  Thin walls, could hear everything from next room.

                  Lcation which was closest to shops

                  As what is being shown on photo was not their. There was corberbs in the room. Thew sad part was that they dont supply milk to their guest.

                • Older travelers
                  6.6

                  The price. It was fine for one night as budget accommodation

                  Cramped room. Reception not open when we left just prior to10am, to drop off key.

                • Couple
                  8.8

                  Clean, tidy, a great place to rest your head for the night. Do recommend

                  Cheap clean and everything u need for a night comfy beds too :)

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  Everything really. It was only 10 minutes walk from the Intercity bus stop. The staff were all really friendly. The room & the rest of the facilities were all extremely clean. It was in a quiet part of Taupo but within easy walking distance of the lake & town centre. It was very quiet & we had a great night's sleep.

                  We didn't have any problems at all.

                • Couple
                  6.2

                  We stayed in a private, double room with kitchenette. Good priced accommodation. Rooms also have self-controlled air conditioning which we were so grateful to have! There was also a good selection of channels available on the TV, including Sky Sports and a few movie channels. Cooking utensils etc are supplied so you are able to cook meals. Kind of random but I liked that they provided 4 pillows on the bed- many places I have stayed have only provided 2 and myself and my partner like to have 2 each.

                  They say en-suite bathroom, but in reality it's a shared en-suite, which made things a hassle while getting ready in the morning. Not really Astro's fault, but on the Saturday night we stayed the guests were really loud- screaming, yelling and swearing up and down the corridors from about midnight to 3am. This wouldn't have been too much of a big deal, but we had just finished a long drive and were exhausted. There is also no soundproofing of the rooms- you can hear EVERYTHING. The rooms aren't serviced daily, and bins aren't emptied, so the bin in our room got very full. The parking there is very weird- if you fill up the parks behind the building I can't see how cars would actually be able to leave the premises as parking space is VERY tight around the building.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  The cost and staff present.

                  Sharing a bath room, as the fan would come on when light was switched on. Need separate switch for fan.

                  The cleanliness and warmth and modern facilities were far beyond our expectations, especially for the price we paid.

                • Couple
                  7.0

                  Very cheap, easily accomodating our late check in.

                  There is not much sound proofing between rooms - can hear EVERYTHING - and also not too keen on sharing a bathroom.

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  was good price very small but very clean

                  have coffe an tea but they dont have milk and you cant buy any there so you get caught out when you first arrive

                • Older travelers
                  5.4

                  convenient location

                  shared en-suite smelt funky and musty and the rooms have now insulation or soundproofing in them, you can hear EVERYTHING going on in other rooms! Also the website needs updating, the room pics looked much better online than in person.

                • Couple
                  7.4

                  They were very accommodating considering we arrived late at night. Our room was very nice and tidy. Good value for money. Only problem was the room was advertised as ensuite. Which is it was but you shared with another room. The other guests kept banging on the door as they wanted to use the bathroom even though we had only be in there 2 minutes.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Convenience, relaxed & value for money. Recommended venue .
