52 on Rifle Motel


52 on Rifle Motel is just a short walk to the shores of the Legendary Great Lake Taupo.

Perfectly situated between the town centre and lakefront, only 400 metres to the main event site, it is in a prime pre- and post-race position.  It also has the added bonus of off-street parking (even for boats and trailers!), so if you are planning on driving, or sailing, to the event we can pre-book you a space in advance, just let us know.

The on-site facilities provide everything you need for a fantastic stay –  enjoy a dip in the outdoor pool, watch the kids play at the playground or fire up the ‘barbie’ and enjoy the meal in the park-like BBQ area.  Indoors there is also a games room with pool table and table tennis (payable locally), free Wi-Fi and a self-service laundry service.

Rooms here are bright and modern with air-conditioning, mini kitchens with cooking facilities and 40” TV’s with Sky channels.
