Great views ,friendly hosts and a beautiful property . A little "out of the way" but worth it for the stunning location. The room we had was well equipped and very comfortable. A good choice year round .

Having not long been back from our honeymoon I feel I should and shouldn't share this review with you!! Omori Lake House was one of, if not our favourite stay on our honeymoon travels - outrigger on the lagoon in Fiji was a near rival. We stayed at 12 different venues in total and nearly all were of very high... More

Superb breakfasts and joined them for drinks both nights. Very hospitable indeed. Great restaurant only 5 minutes drive away. Superb meal had there. Also a great location for the... More

We only stayed here for one night but we were very glad we did. Raewin and Neil were so welcoming, after arriving late asking us to enjoy a drink and a hot cross bun. The house is beautiful with a lovely outlook. The room was lovely with a nice bathroom (including a bath!). Breakfast was delicious - the muesli and... More

Omori Lake House was our home for 4 nights and the end of a month long trip. We can't imagine making a better choice. Raewin and Neil immediately make you at home. We had to deal with some bad weather, and they were more than helpful in their advice. Neil makes terrific coffee, while Raewin is an excellent cook -... More

This is a beautiful house perched high above Lake Taupo with stunning views and comfortably close to the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. But that's not the best bit - that would be the owners, Neil and Raewin who 'adopt' you the moment you walk through the door. Raewin is a New Zealander going generations back and Neil knows everyone and combines... More

After having stayed with Neil and Raewyn back in December 2007, we went back in January and we again had a wonderful time at Omori Lake House. Neil and Raewyn are such natural hosts and again made us so welcome. Raewyn provided scrumptious breakfast and Neil worked the coffee machine expertly. The views across the lake from the house are...

We spent two nights here and were made to fell very welcome. Our room was very comfortable and the view across the lake is lovely. The hosts were very friendly, insisting that we had drinks with them both evenings, and gave us some good hints for things to do locally. The only negative comment is that on our first evening...

We stayed here in December 2012 for 1 night. The room was very comfortable and the view from it across the lovely garden to the Lake was special. Breakfast was more than adequate. This striking modern building was designed and built by the owners who seem to enjoy running it as a B & B, almost as a hobby rather... More
