The owners were fantastic

I’ve stayed at the Cascades over the years and the new owners Graham & Robyn are really nice, caring people. The room was spotless, comfortable, right at the lake and the motel itself is in a terrific location. Easily accessible to those day trips you’ll want to take too. If you’ve never stayed at the Cascades, maybe you should.

Great Stay

I work for a youth organisation and we took some students away for a few days away from their home town.
Cascades were more than hospitable, very friendly upon our arrival and until we checked out.
We loved our rooms, they were clean and tidy.
Having access to the swimming pool and spa was a bonus as well as being right next the lake.
This place was very peaceful, organised and relaxing – I highly recommend staying there – I for one will going back with friends and family next time 🙂

Fabulous place to stay and we can’t wait to stay here again. Lovely rooms, location and pools and very friendly service.

Sarah van der Boom

Taupo treat

We had a very comfortable stay at Cascades, enjoying the friendly personal service and the proximity to the lake for our morning walk and coffee.

Carol Hurley

Great location, quiet, friendly staff

The Comfort Inn is 3km from taupo but it was great staying on the lakefront. Plus it’s an enjoyable walk into town. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. It was great having our own BBQ and outdoor table set


Second visit – love it here!

Great space, great location, great kitchenette, spa bath, pool and jacuzzi on site. There was a lovely little cat who would greet us on arrival too 🙂 very homely in an extremely scenic location. Hope to visit again!


Quiet, clean, spacious units

Clean units, friendly & helpful staff. Our unit had a small courtyard with a BBQ, which was private. It also had a mezzanine floor & second bathroom, which our children used, so provides good space for families. It’s located on the lake side of the main road, so there’s great access to the lake & walking track. Bikes can be hired at a reasonable cost & we were able to use these for some time as there were no other bookings. Really quiet – would stay here again.

Great price, great location, very helpful

Have stayed here 3 times over the last few years, and every time been highly impressed with how accommodating and helpful the owner/staff were. We booked last minute at peak season, simply by phoning the day before. We were very well looked after, and provided a portacot and all bedding at no extra charge.
Was only a flying stop (arrived late, left early), but highly recommend and would certainly stay here again myself.


Such a lovely spot

We stayed for 5 nights. The rooms where serviced daily which was such a great service. Friendly team. We stayed in room 3 and loved access to lake, what a beautiful area to stay in, thanks for Paul and Sues kindness with our stay.


Spacious Unit by the lake

Lovely clean spacious unit right on the lake. We were made to feel welcome and nothing was a problem. Hired bikes and went for a long ride around the lake. Beds very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.


Fantastic Family Getaway

Stayed in Unit 2. Literally on Lakes edge. Unit was spotless and had daily service. Unit was modern and comfy, and had all the mod cons our family needed, including essential self service laundry. Awesome heated pool. BBQ, Outdoor furniture/Courtyard. Lovely helpful owners. This is our second stay here this time with the kids. We will be back.


Thank you!

Thank you for a very pleasurable stay.

Lovely clean rooms and the deluxe family room was very roomy with every amenity required.

Great to be so close to the Lake and a nice walk to the Centre.

We will definitely be returning!

Katrina Castell

Second visit from UK

Lovely spot to feel at home and relax. The location is perfect and great facilities. It’s our second visit from the UK and hopefully not our last!

Lori Colbourne


Very Nice place to stay, clean quiet with the lake beach literally at your backyard. It can accomodate 6 people as well with all the necessary basic amenities… Will stay there again given the opportunity. Dont’forget, affordable too… Thanks Mr. Paul and the crew…

Randy Dazo


We are a family of 6 persons who stayed at ‘The Loft” here at Comfort Inn from 24th Dec. for 3 nights. The Unit was very clean, beds were soo comfy and we had everything we needed in the kitchen. The Manager Paul was excellent to deal with and very helpful , the closeness to the lake was fantastic, just two minutes and you can take a lovely swim. The pool and spa and children’s playground were great extras.

We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to family and friends. MauriOra

Adrienne Foley

We really enjoyed our stay

We really enjoyed our stay on 5 and 6 December. The location of our unit to the heated pool and easy access to Lake Taupo was an added attraction. The unit was very comfortable, and spacious.
Have no hesitation in staying again, or recommending the Motel to others.

Roger Noble

another nice weekend stay

Had an upstairs room, one queen bed, kitchen and bathroom. Room was spacious, clean and tidy. Have stayed here before, and we always get good service and a friendly welcome. Stayed for a the Cycle Challenge weekend so the place was full. Motel is lakeside, a couple of Km from the main centre of town, and has easy access to the lake. Would recommend to anyone.

James Walker

Weekend at Comfort Inn cascades.

Welcoming service upon arrival.
Shown to car park and room.
Very clean, comfortable and tidy well appointed room and bathroom with all services provided.
Excellent communication via management with telephone messages.
Would certainly recommend this Inn for services provided and location.

David S. Belcher


This is a great place to stay for families / group of friends etc. Lovely and spacious with two bathrooms (always a bonus). Lovely hosts, lovely facilities. We booked really late after driving from Wellington late afternoon, through a very wet, foggy desert road, so to arrive to a well lit warm room was just devine. Thanks guys

Gina Drury


The host was friendly and welcoming and took time to visit personally with us. Very helpful with earthquake information which helped us with the remainder of our drive
It was a very nice facility.


Lovely place to stay

It was a very quick, short stop-over. We were arriving late, which was no problem. Only stayed the one night but the Studio we stayed in was marvellous. Very well appointed and very clean. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Kelly Barker

Great spot to rest

We had a lovely time at the Cascades. The host was extremely helpful and accommodating. We would recommend it to anyone.

Paul Sandler

Just awsome.

Thanks to the wonderful staff we had an amazing wine at Lake taupo. Looking forward to our next visit.

Nic Bekker

Private, Quiet Motel Unit

We stayed one back from the lake front in the Acacia View unit.
We are two single women so the two sleeping areas and two bathrooms suited us well.
The unit was private and quiet and although there were guests in other units we were unaware of them.
Had the weather been better it would have been very pleasant sitting out in the courtyard area.
We enjoyed our three nights at Comfort Inn Cascades.

Sue Miller

Lovely accommodation

We took some overseas visitor to stay in Taupo for 3 days and they were absolutely blown away with everything about Taupo – especially the wonderful accommodation right on the Lake. The unit was beautifully set up with everything you are likely to need and having a second bathroom was just great. The owner of the motel was extremely helpful and next time we are staying in Taupo I will definitely be returning to the Comfort Inn Cascades. Can highly recommend.

Irene Evans

A very comfortable and welcoming place to stay right on the lakefront

The room is very comfortable and very clean, very well appointed. Our room opened to a lovely patio which led straight down to the lake. There is a walking track alongside the lake which leads into Taupo. Our room was dog friendly and the motel was very welcoming of both us and our little dog. We always stay at this motel when we come to Taupo.


Winter Escape

We stayed over the weekend just been. The amenities are great. There’s a little kitchenette and the apartments are split level. Everything was really clean and there is a lovely spa and heated pool. Overall great value for money. The owners are also really friendly and were a pleasure to deal with.


Great place to stay

Great place. Good for walks around the lake. Quiet and clean. Nice views of the lake. Could walk to the town if you are a walker. Hosts were helpful. Had a spa pool and swimming pool. Lovely bathroom.

Warbrick Family

Family Holiday

We stayed at the comfort inn cascades for 3 days for a family ski trip, the staff were friendly and kind and super helpful with directions and information. The heated pool was a winner for the kids. The spa pool can only be booked for 30 minute slots and cant be turned up over 32 degrees which was a little disappointing since it was freezing there, but the kids loved it! Would definately go back and stay.


Lovely family suite

We had 4 nights here last week. The place was very clean, with good heating. The high, sloping ceilings made the unit feel spacious, and there were lots of north-facing windows. The bathroom was very nice with a great spa bath. The kitchen was small but adequate. Lovely hosts.


Best sheets in New Zealand

What a fabulous bed and the sheets so fresh and crisp was really nice. Great room great heated pool and over all friendly staff made the stay enjoyable. Would recommend you give it a try. We will be back to stay.


Fantastic stay again

This motel is a little gem. Fastidiously appointed with everything you could need. Cosy and comfortable and spotlessly clean. This is my 4th stay and my go to place when travelling between Wellington and Auckand. Other places may be newer and shinier but still don’t come close to this place.


Very comfy

Stayed here for 2 nights with a family of 4. We found it to be very suitable, and roomy. Great location next to beach front, own private courtyard area. Kids enjoyed the pool. Very very hospitable hosts. Genuine kind caring people. Would definitely stay again.


Clean and Comfortable

We stayed in the large family suite and it was great! The suite was imaculate! Soooo clean and tidy! The swimming pool is beautiful and we had a spa bath in our bathroom! It was just fantastic to have a hot bath after coming from the cold streets of Taupo! The staff was very helpful and friendly… I super recommend.


Lake side summer sunshine

The Comfort Inn is right on the lake side great access to the lake walk way, the kids loved the spacious room and the heated pool. Also handy to Thermal Pools and easy drive around lake front to town and cafes/restaurants. The room had everything a family needs warm and comfortable.


Enjoyable stay

Great site right on the beach, very good for families. Older complex but very clean and quite comfortable. Really liked free wifi available. We were lucky having a unit facing Taupo as it got the winter sun shining through which did make a difference. Management very accommodating to our requests.


Nice lakeside Motor Lodge

The Motor lodge is on the edge of lake Taupo. It’s located a short walking distance from the town. The room was clean and spacious with plenty of cooking facilities. Friendly staff with good local knowledge.


Right on the waterfront

Welcoming hosts, a marvellous view and a lovely spacious warm room. The Acacia suite had everything that we needed to enjoy a great weekend. Clean, lovely crisp sheets and a King size bed . Best thing for us was that it’s right next to the waterfront so we were able to cycle in either direction to find some great cycle paths. The perfect location for a break away in Taupo.


Comfort Inn Cascades

Nice and clean, comfortable and relaxing close to the lake. Has a nice heated pool and lovely garden. Have returned several times and I am planning to return again. It is situated in close proximity to all amenities.


Clean & Comfortable

Quiet and comfortable stay in a clean room overlooking lake Taupo. NZD 190 for 4 beds, BBQ pit and outdoor dining area. Only regret is that there were only 2 of us, and we had to leave early in the morning. But we did enjoy the spa bath which was a bonus.


Plan your holiday with us

We have accommodation options to suit all types of travellers. We are located close to Taupo city centre, and we are right on the edge of Lake Taupo, giving you direct lake access.
