This is the best B & B that I have ever stayed, and it's really like our home in New Zealand. Not only because of its equipment or location, but also (and most important) because of its wonderful host Bonnie, very passionate and knowledgeable about Taupo. We really miss her and her lovely house.

Such a great location and a beautiful house maintained by an even more beautiful person. Bonnie is the best host we have met in our entire North Island journey. Always so ready to help, chirpy and full of kind words. The best part about this place is its a 2 minute walk from the Taupo bungee and has a wonderful... More

Had a great two days at Riverview with Bonnie, nothing was too much trouble for her and she shared her local knowledge with us. Made our stay in Taupo a very enjoyable epxerience. Fantastic view of the river from the lounge.

I have been home over a week now from when we stayed here and I am still talking about Bonnie and her Riverview B&B. She made us feel very much at home as soon as we walked into her beautiful home with a lovely view of the Waikato River. What made it even better was the good weather we had... More

We couldn`t have asked for more, Bonnie made us so very welcome and we so enjoyed our stay at Riverview. We thoroughly recommend this B&B, it was just perfect and we could have sat looking at the wonderful view forever.

My wife & I stayed at Riverview for two nights in January and could not fault it. The view over the Waikato river is stunning, and all the attractions are within easy reach, -if you want bungy jumping, it's a five minute walk away! Bonnie is a wonderful hostess and nothing is too much trouble for her, (you don't get... More

Had the great pleasure of staying with Bonnie at the Riverview in November 2013. Booked through Trip Advisor. Communication was simple at all times. Arrived late afternoon and received a lovely welcome. Enjoyed a nice glass of wine with Bonnie in her conservatory overlooking the Waikato River. She is so easy to get on with and so engaging. What a... More

Bonnie, our host, is awesome, amazing, lovely and full of energy!!! Bonnie's attention to detail made the stay in this superb B&B fantastic! No issues with any part of the home. Views are to die for and food is quality. To say "make yourself at home" is easy but Bonnie pulls it off so well, one can not help but... More

Location - less than 5 mins to city centre, lake and harbour. Views overlooking Waikato river were stunning. AMAZING natural hot water pools very nearby. Free and completely natural! A must (even in winter). B&B - comfy super king bed with a large private bathroom. Very clean and well presented. Bonnie was lovely and gave us plenty of tips for... More

Hi there. So sorry about that, had a meeting 2 days before your arrival, 16 in all, and a few of them smoked. All cleaned out, and back to normal. Thank you for your review. Bonnie More
