Raewyn & Neil welcomed us into their wonderful home in a stunning location. We shared a pre dinner drink, enjoyed a wonderful meal, and exchange stories until late in the evening. They are consummate hosts and we urge you to stay with them. We walked at Lake Rotopounamu near the Omori Lake House. It was a steady climb from the... More

Excellent Bed & Breakfast in a wonderful location overlooking Lake Taupo. The approach to the property is good, along a gravel driveway with ample parking and turning area right outside the property. We received a warm welcome from Raewynb & Niel, the owners and were shown to our luxurious bedroom which was of ample size and with sliding doors opening... More

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

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...
