This was a tucked away rural location with only the birdsong audible as we were away from busy roads, yet still close enough to both Taupo and for Rotorua (within approx 40 mins). Very clear directions were provided for us.The accommodation was a separate part of the house which made it very private and comfortable like our own log cabin... More

Aultmore is tucked away in beautiful grounds designed as a mini arboretum and the property backs onto the river. We elected one night to bring in a takeaway and have it with a bottle of wine in the barbecue area overlooking the river watching the sun go down - how civilised can you get? Accommodation is really a suite with... More

We found this place as a last minute resort for accommodation while attending the heart/foreigner concert. Never stayed in a B&B before but from receiving the confirmation email, excellent instructions on" how to find us" , superb hosts, the experience was amazing. We were treated like a King and Queen. With the beautiful gardens, river at your door, birds chirping,... More

The location is in the middle of a great garden and close to waikato river. We had our own little appartment for 1 week and enjoyed the BBQ close to the river. Our host Mike gave us every day plenty of ideas what to do and to see in the grate Taupo Region.

Aultmore is a beautiful B&B about 20km north of Taupo. I wish we had had a day just to enjoy the property! The gardens are beautiful and it is right on the river (which we were told is quite warm and pleasant to swim in). The room itself is actually more like your own little apartment, with a bedroom, sitting... More

We stayed here for 2 nights In Feb . It's a charming place to stay for visiting Taupo and its beautiful lake(this takes about 15-20 mins in car with detailed directions from our hosts Mike and Julia) or to see plenty of other local attractions in the area eg the dramatic Huka Falls and a little further afield the fascinating...

We stayed at the self catering cottage, welcomed by Mike who had a vast amount of knowledge of the area and things to do. The location was very peaceful, with lovely well kept gardens. A hammock and sitting area overlooking the river to chill out next to. There was access to the river and a wooden bench to sit down... More

Our B&B near Taupo was very good value. The self-catering accommodation is in a separate building from the main house. It was roomy but a little tired, with a large living room, kitchen and smallish bedroom and bathroom. It had a beautiful garden and is situated next to the river. You can swim there, but it was a little cold... More

We recently spent two nights here while exploring the Taupo-Rotorua area. It's about 10 to 15 minutes out of town but the setting couldn't be lovelier. Located on the river with river access for those who want to swim, the owners have refurbished the absolutely gorgeous gardens. We had a small back patio to enjoy the view. Mike and Julia... More

We stayed in the self-catering accommodation. We chose Aultmore for its location which is well placed between Taupo and Rotorua. We stayed three nights. I must say we had a very good price for the cottage, but whilst the bed was comfy and there was plenty of hot water the place is definitely tired and it was a bit grubby... More
