this was one of the best views we had on our trip to NZ and we had some amazing views! beautiful lodge that we stay in and watch the sunrise in bed! our breakfast basket - Jacki's homemake peach muffins where delicious - was tasty and good and nice touch. Great, Size, very quiet and well appointed. This is THE spot to see lake Taupo from in our opinion.
Up a very steap and long hill but a great little brasserie can be found at the bottom, highly recommend comfy shoes and torch for the walk home.
