We booked our stay at Clearwater Motor Lodge as we wanted water views, a spa bath and an easy location to the Lions Walk cycle path. The room was perfect, the spa bath relaxing, location perfect and the friendly staff made us feel most welcome

Simple room fully equipped in an amazing location with great staff. If you're staying in Taupo, this is a lovely option. My room was on the water - uninterrupted views and a stones throw to the beach and walkway.
