Becky & Rob have a lovely home with very comfortable guest accommodation and wonderful views over Lake Taupo. With their very kind and generous hospitality this comes highly recommended. Acacia Bay is slightly out of town however there is a great local restaurant.

The only mistake we made was not staying at Tauhara Sunrise longer. We have stayed in many B&Bs but this ranks as one of the best. Becky is an exceptional host and we couldn't have been looked after any better. Excellent variety of breakfasts and perfectly prepared. Happy hour at six is not to be missed and wherever we went...

Wonderful views from our charming room which was extremely luxurious with a large shower room,plenty of fluffy towels and lovely toiletries. Becky was a fanatastic hostess - cooking delicious breakfasts, preparing canapes at drinks time plus... More

We stayed in this delightful lodge with extensive views over Lake Taupo for two nights. So warmly welcomed by Becky and Rob - nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful breakfasts were served in the spacious dining room - we were offered simply anything we wanted - and at night we lay in our vast and very comfortable bed and looked... More

Becky and Rob have created a very nice environment at the Tauhara Sunrise. My wife and I spent 2 nights of our honeymoon there and loved it. Some bullet points: - Gorgeous Lake Views - Market and Restaurant ~5-10 walk away - Hot Tub with robes, extra towels (on huge balcony) - Warm, Genuine Hospitality - Great balance of interaction...

What a fantastic stay we had here, only one problem - it wasn't nearly long enough. Our room was wonderful with a huge king size bed, a beautiful bathroom with fantastic toiletries and a dressing room. The best part though was the view from the picture widow of the lake. Becky showed us around the house and the upstairs guest... More

One of the loveliest places we've stayed in many years of travelling. The view is stunning - the evening lights only topped by the morning vista of a misty lake and sparkling air. The room was delightful and the staff excellent and professional. We can't wait until our next stay!

We had a very warm welcome and a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this very pleasant lodge. The situation is spectacular with panoramic views over the lake. Becky and Rob were excellent hosts, full of helpful advice. Rooms and all facilities were excellent.

Outstanding lodge to spend a night or two away from the typical cold hotel. Becky and Rob were enjoyable hosts who like treating their guests with warm hospitality and conversation over a glass of wine. Great location to see the lake from your bedroom window. Lodge and gardens were a work of art and beauty that really puts you in... More
