“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2010

My husband and I stayed here for one night during our tour of the North Island. We stayed in the lake view room which was stunning. The room was very spacious with a lovely big bed. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful to us, recommending things to do in the area. And the breakfast the next day was one of the best during our stay in NZ.

It is situated about 25 min walk from the town which suited us fine, we walked in for dinner that night no problem, although our hosts did offer to drop us in.

I would definitely reccommend this B&B.

Maggie and Ivan were very hospitable. Make sure you arrive in time for the 6 o'clock drinks and a chance to discuss all the attractions around Taupo. Our hosts have only recently taken over this B+B and have worked very hard to make it as appealing as it is. We were upgraded from the Queen room in the Garden suite to the King as there were no other guests at the time. The pub next door is not an issue , in fact they serve a great dinner,

A lovely B&B with great views of the lake. Our garden rooms were very clean and cosy. Angela our host was very friendly and also very helpful with our onward travel. She also cooks a really good breakfast.

We had a wonderful stay in Taupo - Angela & Bruce were very friendly and helpful in giving us tips on things to do and see while in the area. We enjoyed Angela's cooked breakfasts which set us up for the day. We had a lovely bedroom with a super ensuite with a spa bath the rooms were clean and beautiful
