          Friendliness of manager. View of lake & mountain. Warm unit.

          Not enough vanity top space for toiletries of two adults.. No milk provided. No courtesy biscuits.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          close to town and restaurants

          limited choice of tv channels and a small bed! ( guess we are used to king size)

        • Older travelers

          It was awesome. Ross went above and beyond the call of duty. I rang to see if he could organise flowers and wine and it was all set up when I got there. Nice to see some people still put their customers first, doent happen much these days.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Plenty of space, good facilities, convenient location, quiet.

          Pillow cases did not appear to have been changed as there were hairs visible. We used the spare set, Room decor getting a little dated

          We were supporting our daughter in the Taupo Ironman on the Saturday. It was cancelled due to terrible weather and a 70.3 was held on the Sunday. The manager was very understanding and allowed us a very late checkout on the Sunday so we had facilities while the race was on. The room was extremely comfortable and well appointed. The location was walking distance to all that Taupo has to offer on the Ironman weekend. Highly recommended, especially for the friendly management.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Great spacious apartments in a good location with friendly staff. We will be back.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          I must say how helpful they were - we had a late booking for the Taupo Bike Race - chanced on cancellation. Arrived early but room ready :) place was packed but they seemed to cope with the mass of people coming and going and we didn't feel overcrowded at any time - room wasn't too noisy. The one fantastic bonus was allowing us a late checkout next day when I asked - allowing us to tramp up to Huka Falls - THANKS!! Really made the weekend for us! We could walk everywhere - will most definitely be back! Please pass on my comments if you can!

          A good location, clean, quiet, good facilities and very friendly staff. We had a great trip.

          A bit pricey but still worth it.

        • Couple
          9.6

          I liked that it was close to town and that the staff wer really friendly and they helped us with what we wanted and also we asked for an upgrade and they wer happy to do so.

          Chantillys is centrally situated in a quiet area just a block or so back from the main highway. It is very clean and modern with good facilities, and has secure parking. We had a lovely view of Lake Taupo from our own private balcony. The managers are very friendly and helpful. We intend to stay there again in the future and highly recommend it to all.

          There was nothing we disliked..

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          spacious and clean. handy to town

          my only negative comment was that as we were in an access unit we found that the crockery being in a very low level cupboars was VERY hard to get anything out. We had to kneel on the floor to get some items out.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          it was awesome me and my husband had a great room was just what we wanted for our money, it was clean and spacious and a great location. Thanks for a awesome motel would recommend it to anybody.

          Couldn't say anything to dislike the place, it was great. A++++++

        • Single
          10.0

          Everything just right. there is no other word for it.

          nothing, except for one piece of tile is slightly loose on the floor. but you hardly notice it at all.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Great value for money. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Rooms were very spacious and beautiful.Not one bad thing to say about my stay there would definitely go back and recommend other to stay there also.

          Not one this i didnt like while staying there.

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Well-appointed for a motor lodge. Felt relatively modern/fresh, tidy, efficient, and the staff/owners were very friendly and efficient also.

          Too much road noise for the units on the main road side of the premises, which is majority of units. This is a wide (albeit 50kph) main road with chipseal. Cars tend to drive quite quickly along the road and this contributes to causing road noise that drowns tv and sleeping for all a few hours in the middle of the night. This affects kids getting to sleep, as well as adults who aren't deep sleepers. Difficult for them to fix except at high expense. Best to be aware and book a room that isn't road-side.
