I liked that they upgraded us from a studio to a family unit because of our dogs at no extra charge. Plenty of space and just an awesome first time in Taupo.
We had an upstairs room with spa bath and a small lake view of the hot water beach. Bed was very comfortable and room very clean and tidy. Staff were friendly and accommodating. We were well informed before hand via email of what was available in the area particularly for dog owners and loved that our dog could stay with us (although we didn’t bring her this time).
Cascades is close to the lake walkway and a short walk to the Two Mile Bay sailing club where we ate pizza listening to great musicians, also dog friendly. We’ll stay again next time we’re in Taupo.
The staff was friendly and helpful. The motel is right by the lake and we enjoyed the view and walks. There is a cafe & bar nearby which is super dog friendly.
We were travelling with our dog, so this was a great find – a pet friendly motel. We let them know in advance that we would have our dog with us and they were able to send us their one-pager that had sensible regulations for someone staying with a dog. It was only $20 extra to have the dog stay with us. Our dog sleeps in a crate anyway, so the room they gave us, which had a kitchenette area was perfect.
The location of the motel is excellent, right on the lakefront so it was a lovely walk to take in the evening and in the morning. The bed was comfy, we slept really well and the room was very clean.
The shower had great water pressure and the kitchenette was well set up.
The owners/managers were so friendly and accommodating. We will certainly try and stay here again next time we pass through Taupo.

Tidy, spacious, comfortable. Great with pets,(dogs) easy book in an check out, great Mini Bar and wonderful staff.
A great pet friendly hotel that was in a good location and walking distance to the central city. It is hard to find places that will allow pets so we’re very happy with this.
We loved our stay here – Rooms were very well equipped and clean.
Gorgeous linen (which is always a good sign of a top quality hotel!) we were lucky enough to get a pet friendly suite so our labrador could stay with us which was fantastic! The staff were so helpful and friendly- top service! We will definitely stay again.
We had the pleasure of being the first dog owners to stay in the Fino in Christchurch recently. The welcome from the manager and staff was warm, and the accommodation was top notch.

Our dog relished the dog treats and complimentary toy. It meant so much to us to be able to bring our older dog with us on the trip and not to have the stress of boarding him in kennels.
The information pack was very helpful and the central location of the Fino (and on-site parking) contributed greatly to our visit. We would highly recommend the Fino to everyone and particularly to others traveling with their pet.

Lovely little touches like fresh juice, ample milk and plunger coffee and warm fresh muffins each morning. Our pet was welcomed and great walking tracks nearby-perfect dog place!
Breakfast was lovely. Robyn catered for my gluten intolerence with GF bread & delicious freshly made gluten free muffins which were a treat. Good continental breakfast provisions. Our dog was happy here. Unfenced but once she’d had a sniff around she was happy to stay close to the room or lie in shady spot and watch the world go by.
Loved the fact that she could go inside with us. Location has a slight rural feel and is fine if happy to drive to beach etc, (only 5 or 10 mins) which to us wasn’t a hassle.

The playground was good. Not having to bring sheets and towels a huge bonus. The outside hook for wet jackets, towels, umbrella well thought of.
We have stayed here twice now both times taking our little dog.
The camp grounds are lovely and peaceful, kitchen cabin has everything except a bathroom but the toilet/shower block is so close and always warm and inviting, extremely clean we love the music and pot plants showers are AMAZING.
The cabin we stayed in was nice and clean and had everything we needed including a little fridge and TV.
We will definitely be coming back and back.
Thank You for your friendly hospitality.

Parking is at rear of building.They also have one dog friendly room on the ground floor but you need to book early for this room.
Good location overlooking the foreshore. All rooms have views. Staff moved us to higher level on the second night as rooms came available which was a nice touch.Very handy location to Napier town, shops and restaurants.
Noted they allow dogs to stay as an option.
We wanted a place we could stay with our dog and there weren’t many options. Te Pania stood out because not only did it welcome dogs but also because it’s in a great location right on the waterfront. When we arrived we were greeted warmly, especially our dog, staff came out from behind the counter to pat him and give him a treat. The room was perfect, tucked away in the corner on the ground floor with doors directly accessing a flat lawn and the waterfront right across the road. They provided the dog with his own comfy bed and bowls and a treat was waiting for him. Staff were helpful and considerate during our stay and we will definitely stay here again next time we are in Napier.
