First class B&B, Susan and Tony welcomed us as if we were old friends and by the time we left that is how we felt. Our room was very comfortable and quiet with a fridge and lots of goodies. We enjoyed our wine and canapé sessions greatly, thoughtfully provided early since we don't like eating too late. We certainly laughed... More

The lodge wasn't in Taupo city centre but it locates right next to the lake which offer superb environment and easy access to the small beach in front. Great view of the lake from room and balcony.
