    We liked the location and value for money. We felt the second bedroom was a tight squeeze with the twin bedding configuration as the door could not shut unless the beds were moved.

    This was my second stay here - Both times business trips. The shared space meant that colleagues and I were able to work in the same space until late at night before going to bed in our own rooms. Checking in have been awesome on both occasions and has a certain "welcome to our home" feel. It is located around the corner from restaurants, bars, and shops, which have been super convenient after a long day (and when you forget to pack a toothbrush). Will definitely stay here again when I work in Taupo and would highly recommend this establishment for business and persona trips.

    52 on Rifle has a perfect location! Due to social distancing etc we didn't actually get to meet any of the staff, but we got a phone call the day we were due to arrive informing us of where to get our key etc. When we arrived to our room they had turned the heaters on for us so it was nice, warm and cosy. I'm sure had we met the staff, they would have been awesome

    The property is around 15 - 20 mins walk from Taupo city centre. There is a convenient store across the road, do note that the store close like 7-7.30pm. The owner is helpful and friendly to guests.
