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

We stayed with Mike and Julia on 01 Jan 2012 and were very impressed with the accommodation, facilities, friendliness of the owners and the magnificent setting of the house. The guest accommodation has its own front door and includes a separate sitting room, WC and bathroom, as well as a large bedroom with access to river via the wonderful and... More

This place is as close to perfect as I can imagine. We stayed in the self-catering cottage which was lovely. Comfortable bed, great shower with tons of hot water, TV if you want it, and lots of books. We were only staying for two nights (wish it had been two weeks) so we didn't want to do much cooking, but... More

Great spot in a tremendous park-like setting on the tree-lined banks of the Waikato River. Unit was very well set out & comfortable. Hospitality was excellent - warm & friendly without being over-bearing. We had to set off early, 4.45am, the first morning of our stay well before breakfast time - but it was no trouble for the hosts to... More

We stayed in the cottage at Aultmore recently. We were met by Mike, who was really welcoming and ready with many suggestions for what to do during our stay. We were somewhat familiar with the area but really appreciated his input, and the loan of a map for locating nearby attractions. For an overseas guest his local knowledge would be... More
