Hi Joe - We haven't stayed at DeBretts so can't really tell you much about it. We have been to the thermal springs attached to the resort and in my view they are overpriced (for pool admission) for what they offer. I'm not sure if pool admission is included in your room rate but if it isn't, and you are making the decision partly based on having the pools on-site, then I would suggest that you keep looking around as there is plenty of accommodation in Taupo with nice thermal pools (albeit smaller) onsite. If admission is included in the room rate then it's obviously no big deal. What I would suggest, though, is that you check out www.tripadvisor.com for reviews of the accommodation. It's my go-to site for advice on potential accommodation and it's never failed me yet.
Hope that helps :)
Hello fellow 2013 IM NZers. Does anyone have any thoughts or feedback regarding accommodations at the Taupo DeBretts Resort located at 76 Napier Taupo Highway, SH5,Taupo 3330? I am bringing the family from the U.S. and we have 3 small kids. We are considering staying here for IM NZ race week and would like any feedback, positive or negative, regarding this resort. Thanks!
Paul and Toni, thanks for the information, very helpful. I will definitely sign up for the email updates and keep an eye out for registration. Cheers, Joe
As Paul said, online entries for the following year normally open up a couple of weeks after the event and, if I remember correctly from last year, they didn't announce the date that entries would open until the awards dinner.
However if you sign up for their email updates then you should find out in plenty of time!
It has sold out in the last couple of years - hopefully the new Melbourne IM will take the pressure off it next year ... although I won't be taking any chances on that happening :)
You should be able to get a response shortly for IMNZ. Things tend to get a bit hectic with the Summer holidays and the impending deadline for the race. Entries normally open up in the week after the race and sell out within a couple of days.
Hello from the U.S. Does anyone know where you can register online for the 2013 race? I have sent emails to Ironman New Zealand but got no response. I understand it won't open until after the race in March but will they open it up for online registration? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers, Joe
Hi guys i am heading over to Taupo this year and really looking forward to it. My coach and her husband did it last year and loved it!!
It is supose to be the most beautiful place so it should be fun.
