Wow, what a wonderful B&B, from the welcoming coffee, tea and homemade goodies to the nice little hot tub and everything in between. We really enjoyed Lyn and Richard's company. It was nice to come back at the end of the day and sit and talk with them over coffee and tea. Roscoe was a great little host too, greeting... More

This is really something quite different to other B&B's we've stayed at. Lyn and Richard are wonderful hosts and clearly delight in sharing their beautiful home with you. We really enjoyed returning at the end of the day to sit by the fire with a cup of tea and home baked goodies, chatting and laughing with our hosts. They had... More

We were made very welcome by Richard, Lynn and Rosco (the dog). The house is immaculate, with good quality furnishings and guests are invited to use their lounges. Our room was very comfortable with an en suite bathroom. Breakfasts were v good as were the afternoon tea, the homemade lemon muffins in particular. Lynn recommended a good, reasonably priced restaurant... More

Friends recommended we stay here. What a recommendation! Richlyn is located a few kilometres outside of the town. Locating it is easy from the website instructions. The setting is glorious in well maintained gardens. The rooms cater for your every need. Your hosts, Richard & Lynn are full of suggestions of what to do, where to eat and will assist... More

My wife is very discerning when it comes to staying anywhere but our own home. She had read the favorable reviews at the Richlyn B & B and we gave it a shot. We were more than impressed by the overall experience. Everything was clean as could be, the breakfasts were beyond tasty, and the hosts, Richard and Lynn, are... More

Clean, beautifully decorated, modern, peaceful B&B. Very friendly and welcoming owners. Multiple, tasty breakfast options. Nice location - less than 10 minutes drive to Taupo centre in a beautiful little spot. Highly recommend this B&B to anyone.

I've waited a little too long in posting this review, but I wanted to make sure that I had the chance to sit down and really write something that could describe the experience that we had at the Richlyn Bed & Breakfast in Lake Taupo. First, the hosts are two of the most genuine, beautiful, and truly caring people that... More

My husband and I stayed at with Richard and Lynn at their home for five nights in luxury. We were greeted with an excellent bottle of wine and our luggage was taken to our room. We were given a welcome cup of tea and homemade biscuits and cake . They told us of places of interest to visit also good... More

Friendly hosts with a lovely home and facilities. Nice breakfast and friendly chats morning and night. Surroundings are peaceful and close to Taupo, letting you feel isolated, but knowing you are not. Great if you like animals with a dog and cat on hand to also welcome you. Perfect if you want to get away from it all. We had... More
