                                          Lovely views of mountains and lake. Rooms are large and roomy and lovely and warm.The staff were very helpful as my wife was on crutches recovering from a broken ankle so showed us a short cut into the dining area. The dinner menu is top class and the prices were up there as well.

                                          Didnt like paying for a car park - thought the room rate was enough to cover that.

                                          beds. service. room size.

                                          food was far to expensive for quality and presentation. good taste

                                          Our rooms was situated on ground floor, we order room service for breakfast so we had our breakfast outside our room, the air was so fresh and cold, better than taking breakfast indoor.

                                          The setback was we book for king room with lake view, i thought that the room was facing the lake , its so far away from the lake you need to drive down to the lake, takes about 5minutes drive. And also we reserved for 2rooms for my brother in law and my family, but our rooms were not together, few rooms apart, quite inconvenient for us.

                                          very warm welcome, spacious, comfortable and quiet rooms. We got a room with stunning Mountain view - no lake view but we loved it until the end! Best stay in Taupo! The staff was excellent and truly helpful. Thank you for this wonderful stay.

                                          Had dinner with guests one night and food and service were excellent.

                                          toilet paper was not provided one night and after a day out returned to mfind room had not been cleaned.! the room was ground floor and only just qualified as lake and mountain views.

                                          The Bistro Restaurant would have to be among the best I have experienced, great ambiance, outstanding food, good service.

                                          I found the accomodation block very cramped and claustraphobic in the common areas.

                                          Meal in restaurant was great.

                                          Expensive to get fresh milk in room for cup of coffee

                                          Liked the suite we had --actually it was wonderful. Could have had a second toilet though. Generally the premisis were visually exciting .

                                          The biggest issue is uneven performance from the staff. Some individuals were very good but too many others were either not well trained or unsuited for their roles. We had a great dinner followed by a poor breakfast.On our last morning we had breakfast bought to our room. This would have been the worst breakfast --value for money we have experienced.I Think we paid over $50 for a real shocker.Your hotel is visually wonderful and has a lot of promise but I think Simon Gault needs to get stuck into sorting a few things out in the restaurant.Based on current performance we would not reccomend or try a restay.

                                          Very quiet, no noise on corridors etc. Plenty of safe car parking

                                          Got wet walking to the restaurant from our room, little more cover required from elements blowing off the lake!

                                          Well presented hotel in a good location

                                          Poor resturant with regard to their booking arrangements when they are busy. Given this is a Hilton one would expect them to be able to take control of the reservations to ensure everyone they book in can be seated in less than 40 minutes. Which was not the case, resulting in room service!
