My wife and I dropped in for a night on our tour of NZ. What a great place with wonderful hosts. The gardens are beautiful and the view over the lake in the evening was fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here if you are visiting Lake Taupo

Many happy memories for us and all our guests. We wouldn't change a thing and recommend this Lodge to anyone looking for a... More

Thor and I stayed here for one night after a long trip from Wellington. We were welcomed by Gary, who showed us around the property and into our room. The room was cozy and comfortable, however it wasn't what I expected for the price we paid. Our stay was very nice, I just feel as if we paid too much... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay to the beautiful Lake Taupo region of New Zealand. We were lucky enough to spend one of those nights at the breathtaking Lake Taupo Lodge. Exquisite, manicured gardens greeted us upon arrival. The lodge itself was beautifully furnished and offered stunning views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The lodge offers a luxurious...

It is with a sad heart I write this review. If you are after a romantic relaxing getaway with modern conveniences and premium 4 star hotel standards, don't go here. We paid $565 per night, which included breakfast, it was a wet weekend no umbrella's offered and our room was outside along an uncovered path, so we got wet. Gary... More

I am absolutely stunned by your review. So much of this is just not factual. You contacted me on the 17th of February informing me of your severe illness (of which you were happy to tell others, which is why I mention it here) that affected your lower spine thus you were only unable to sit for a very short...

This was one of my favorite properties in New Zealand. I truly enjoyed the views from the upstairs suite. The hosts were very kind and friendly. I enjoyed the gardens and felt like Alice in Wonderland exploring the property. There are some outdoor cats and a sweet indoor pup. I liked the location as it was close to some tasty... More

Gary, Shirley and Baxter welcomed us into their lodge and made us feel just like home. The suites were well furnished, the bath room magnificent with fresh cut flowers daily, excellent wifi, and a delicious breakfast. Gary and Shirley were very helpful with making restaurant arrangements and providing insights to the area. Superb wines served in the evening. They have... More

We very much enjoyed our (3 night) stay at Lake Taupo Lodge. Gary and Shirley were very welcoming and helpful hosts (e.g. getting us into a popular restaurant on a busy night). Our suite had lovely views over the lake and their beautiful garden. Excellent dinners were provided on two nights (taking account of special dietary requirements) and the breakfasts... More

We stayed at Lake Taupo Lodge for 3 nights and had a very nice time. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with a great porch overlooking the beautiful gardens and lake. Gary and Shirley were very welcoming and gave us some good ideas/suggestions of things to do in the area. Also, the breakfasts were fantastic.
