Taupo Hotels – Great Hotels on the Lake

Oma H. Barnett

Finding an accommodation on your holiday is often one of the most daunting tasks of planning a trip. Fortunately, when it comes to visiting Lake Taupo in New Zealand you have plenty of different choices for accommodation, which means that you can stay in a specific type of accommodation or experience a selection of different ones. Taupo hotels vary; including everything from luxury accommodations and private rental units to everything in between.

You have so many different choices to look at that you might feel overwhelmed. Here are some tips to help narrow down your holiday lodging choices:

1. Bear in mind, that the seasons can affect what facilities you will want from your accommodation, for instance if you are staying in Taupo in the winter months (June through August) you might like to have under floor heating, a heat pump, double glazing and a spa bath to keep you warm whilst you admire the snow capped mountains in the distance. Whilst in the summer (December through February) you will be looking for things like air conditioning, private courtyards and barbecues.

2. Many of Taupo’s hotels are situated near the town centre and along the lake front, so think about what views you are looking for and where the majority of your daily activities are going to take place. If you would like to stay near the town centre but you would like to participate in activities such as snowboarding at Whakapapa or Turoa, Jet Boating at the Huka Falls and Bungy Jumping over the Waikato River for instance, look for a hotel accommodation that can assist you with transport to and from these activities.

3. What sort of accommodation are you expecting? It’s important to set your expectations before your start looking otherwise you can be disappointed. If you are looking for a hotel in Taupo you will be wanting a private room/suite with your own bathroom facilities and either a restaurant on site or room service. However, if you were looking at a camping style accommodation you can expect to find shared bathroom & kitchen facilities for instance. The type of accommodation you choose will largely depend on your budget too, so keep this in mind.

When planning a trip to New Zealand, choosing the best Taupo hotels will be high on your list of things to do. Keep in mind that this is a rather popular tourist destination, so you will want to make sure that you book your accommodation in advance. If you want to get a sense of how popular a location is, check their calendar to see when they’re offering accommodations. Because this is such a fantastic scenic location, sometimes even the off seasons can get a little crowded. Whether you’re travelling for a weekend or a great family vacation, you can ensure that the Taupo hotels will be able to accommodate you as needed.
