Highly reccomend this motel. An enjoyable place to stay with comfortable rooms and a lovely spa pool. The staff were extremely helpful and lovely to chat with. Karaka Tree is nice and quiet. Its a very short walk to the lake and a nice walk to the town.

This was a great place to stay, good value for money, Excellent friendly staff and lovely in room spa, would definitely recommend this motel to anyone!
The rooms were a good size, and had a very comfortable bed. Minibar was well stocked with everything we needed.
The owners were extremely friendly and accomodating, and there seemed to be a number of very friendly guests also, indicating they attract similar guests to the staff there. Love this motel and will definitely stay again!

We stayed at the Karaka Tree Motel last week on the way to Turoa for a couple of days skiing. We have 2 little kids 6 & 8 years old. The rooms were large, clean and had everything you needed. I travel a lot around the world, at least overseas once a month and stay at all kinds of hotels. One thing I know to be true about how clean a place to be is by how clean the glass, etc. are in the rooms and I have to say the plates, glass, everything at the Karaka were very clean, I didn't feel like I had to re-clean the glasses before I took a drink. The main feature of the motel for us was the DEEP MINERAL SPA POOL, which was very private and fills up with hot natural mineral water in a few minutes. It was so deep and felt sooooo good that I will always stay at the Karaka on all trips requiring a stay in Taupo. I would highly recommend this motel for business travelers as well as it has a lot of good parking, easy access to the town, is right next to the lake, the rooms are quiet and with the spa you can have a deep relax to unwind for the day. Other's comments might say that the motel is a bit tied and needs a bit of renovation, well to those people I suggests they go and check into a 5 star international hotel and PAY THE MONEY! This motel is not tied, it is lovely and warm and a great deal. The family who run it have a small young family of their own and they are the salt of the earth, they made a really nice cooked breakfast for us just like Mum does. This is a great place to stay and enjoy! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Get that spa pools filled up and yourself soaking as soon as you check in!
