It has took me a while but I am finally getting around to reviewing my accommodation from my holiday 6 months ago! I arrived about 8pm and was greeted by John who was very helpful and even offered to carry my suitcase up the stairs, what a gent! I had booked the Dickens room and was more than happy with... More

we stayed in the shakespeare room in february. the room is large and comfortable with easy chairs and a table. the tea/coffee making is on the landing which whilst not a problem does mean that for the morning cuppa you need to properly attired and not rattle the cups too much.

A charming couple welcomed more poms to their B and B and looked after us so well.....Even lending us rainmacks and an umbrella for the wet concert we attended. Breakfast was delicious and ample and the room very comfortable. Recommended in a heart beat.

What more could we want! Clean, spacious room and bathroom, comfy bed, nice restaurant within walking distance, peaceful area away from bustle of the town, great breakfast. Made perfect by friendly and helpful hosts Jane and John.

Wanted to say what a find this was on our 3 week NZ vacation. We felt blessed to have been able to stay here out of the hustle and bustle of the main hub in Taupo. We were here New Years and the area was crazy busy. We had not planned ahead and booked a place, and once we saw... More

Jane and John not only collected us from the airport after 8pm, but also took us back the next day to collect the rental car! This bed and breakfast is in Acacia Bay, not in Taupo's main area, but there's a lovely restaurant just down the road a little within walking distance. Cafe L'Arte (needs a car but not far)... More

We've stayed only one night at The Loft but it was a lovely experience. The owner, Jane, is a nice and smiling lady who welcomed us at night. The room was big and very cozy, with a comfy bed, lots of pillows, TV, heater, good bathroom with good shower. Also, the breakfast was great, tasty, in a common table where... More

we were looking for somewhere between Hastings and home, so found The Loft. I had visited Acacia Bay many years ago. Jane and John were charming hosts. The room we had was the largest of the three available and it was charming. Jane recommended The Bay restaurant down the hill, which was a real find for a very good dinner.... More

We had a totally lovely experience here and have nothing but good comments to say. Jane and John are very friendly and helpful hosts but not intrusive. We stayed in the lovely Shakespeare suite for 2 nights and really appreciated the extra space. The other 2 rooms are also really nice and the pictures provided are accurate. They are all... More

We stayed for one night and found our hosts to be very welcoming and the accommodation and location to be very good. It is out of town, but this will not be a problem for the vast majority of visitors, who will be travelling by car. The comments of Janine seem to us to be utter nonsense - clearly some... More
