Nice campground with great facilities. But next to the road so quite loud, too expensive. Service was great

Thank you for your candid review of the lakeside sites. We'd love to have you back so next time we invite you to try our Hillside sites. They are removed from the road, so nice and quiet, with lovely views. Hope to see you again soon.

In my opinion this is not a place for tents. The only good thing about this place it is the view; you can be near to the beautiful lake, landscape is amazing, but the kitchen is not well equipped, kitchen it is too small however, bathrooms are clean and water is warm. The WORST thing it’s the noise all night and all day. Camping site it is near to the way, and big trucks and cars are passing all night. I could not sleep because of the noise. This takes away a lot of value to the place which is quite expensive. I couldn’t rest that the worst.

Thank you Valentina and we are sorry to hear that the park didn't suit you. If you do decide to stay again please consider staying on the hillside rather than the lakeside. You will still enjoy the views however the sites are further back from the highway and are impacted much less by the traffic noise. Whilst it is very unfortunate that the park is located where it is some positive action is being taken by the New Zealand Traffic Authority. There is a review of speed limits happening around Lake Taupo. They are proposing a reduction in speed limit from 100 to 60 and we support this as we believe this not only be safer but will reduce the noise impact on the park. We hope that the reduction to the speed is actioned and soon. As a rule, we do advise guests that the area on Lakeside can be noisy and I apologise for this not being the case when you checked in.

Very helpfull staff! Nice views on the lake and close to Taopo and Tongariro crossing. Its a hillside camping with flat spots. Great facilities. The only disadvantage are the permanent campervans which makes the olace look a bit shabby

Great view at the front row but very loud directly next to the street. Quiet at night. Very friendly staff. We were the only ones at this time.

Great motor-camp with good sized tent sites available on the edge of the lake. The motor-camp is located tight beside state highway 1 so there is significant traffic noise particularly from trucks in the evening. However, this is made up for in the morning with the most spectacular lake views. Clean facilities. Free internet, free hot water showers. We arrived late do the office staff left an info pack in a safe outside the office clearly marked where our lot was located. They texted the safe password to us. Happily stay here again for a few nights.

What a great review Ralph, thank you. We see numerous photos from guests popping up on social media showing the spectacular views of the lake at dusk and sunrise....so it must be true ;) We do hope to see you again soon and we're pleased that your late check in was quick and easy.

My family stopped after-hours on the off-chance of a cabin. We were warmly welcomed, and enjoyed our stay in the clean, peaceful and relaxed environment. Yes, the road was busy, but didn't affect our sleep or stay. Taupo lake across the road was stunning, and we enjoyed spending time there before we had to continue our journey south. Many thanks. I have no doubt we will make Motutere Bay Top 10 a stop-over on our journeys in the future. Cheers.
