            The remoteness and relaxation in our room

          • Family with children
            5.4

            Nice, beautiful apartment

            Our baby wasn't really welcome, instead of the information on the website. Communication with the owner was not as usual.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Excellent, spacious, clean, comfortable accommodation and helpful owner.

            10.0

            Beautiful place, a splendid kitchen and wonderful bath.

            The bed a bit too soft for me

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            the room exceeded our expectations - we were upgraded to a lovely room at no extra cost - everything was clean and new and comfortable

            it could perhaps have been identified a little better - it was as well we were not looking for it in the dark

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We were upgraded to the largest unit. It is essentially a two story single family home. Absolutely wonderful.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            We had the very nice surprise of being upgraded from a Queen room to an apartment. Location very peaceful with beautiful views across the countryside towards Lake Taupo. Bed also very comfortable.

            10.0

            As we were lucky enough to be upgraded to the apartment, I can't speak highly enough of Falls Chateau. Amazing apartment, excellent service. A++

            Nothing at all!! Perfect in every way!!

          • Older travelers
            5.0

            Lack of sound proofing. You can hear exactly what the other guests are doing from kitchen to bathroom activities. The room above us started preparing for their leaving at 4 am in the morning & eventually packed their car at 7.30 am which was parked right outside our bedroom window. The room had no microwave. They ask you to wash your crockery but there is no dish soap, dish towels or kitchen sink.

          • Family with children
            9.2

            Very modern and affordable in a really nice location, we got upgraded to the king room at no charge, enjoyed the limited interaction with staff.

            Lack of a microwave

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            View from our living room was lovely, and apartment extremely pleasant

            Falls Chateau is not a hotel it is a large house divided into 3 or 4 apartments. It was difficult to find as it was on a new complex, the restaurant mentioned is only open 3 nights a week and you need a car to do anything. There are no restaurants, bars or shops within walking distance and this should really be mentioned in any info about the apartment.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            A very nice apartment.

            Very difficult to find. There is no one on site which was inconvenient when requests/questions were made. Not really a kitchen. Only a microwave and refrigerator.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Spacious, very comfortable bed and living

            Thin walls - could hear what was happening in the other part of the house. The tea and coffee space cold be closer to the sink! a bit weird not being allowed visitors.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Good location handy to all the shops and huka falls if you like walking. Lots of space, well priced.

            The manager is not the most welcoming, you have to ring him to get in as no office on site. Hard to find, only has a little sign on the side of building,and it is not a hotel. It is a large house that has been converted into 3 apartments. Too many rules which should be advertised on website eg; no visitors (that was news to us when we arrived), extra charge for the stove and no cooking anything spicy or asian, cause they are too lazy to clean it. Air conditioner is not allowed to go over 22 degrees or it shuts down. You should take the time to read some of the comments about this place, as I did after we arrived to check out where it was advertised about this no visitor rule, the only place it says it is on all the negative feed back. Its a shame, this place could be fantastic if the manager upped his customer service skills and got rid of some of these stupid rules. Just felt like they were trying to save a few dollars here and there, just put the price up a little bit to cover the extra cleaning for goodness sake! Also make sure you take your own coffee and tea etc as this is supplied in containers that everyone else has used, ok if you don't mind this, but again how much is it going to cost to supply sachets!
