We enjoyed the absolute waterfront location of Braxmere for a birthday weekend getaway. The 1 bedroom unit appears recently renovated/built with a lovely oversized shower and new kitchenette. Double-glazed stacking doors open out to the view of the lake. The unit was immaculately clean and the plunger/french press coffee in addition to instant sachets was a nice touch. Also nice was the offer of towels for the lake- although it was too cold to swim and the heat pump was on for our arrival. The bed is quite firm - but very comfortable! The only feedback would for management would be for a more explicit check-in deck/area as its confusing in the restaurant and signs for parking. Also the parking space by each unit is very difficult to manoeuvre into - even for small vehicles. We would have loved to stay longer!

We were so pleased to have found this place. Check in was easy, staff were welcoming and friendly. Our apartment was modern and clean, the bathroom was spacious and had a large shower. They had the room nice and warm on arrival. Apartment had everything you needed + more. Stunning views! We booked into their restaurant (Lakeland House) for dinner and WOW the meals were amazing! The quality of the food was spot on, fresh and full of flavours, portion sizes were very generous and the presentation was lovely. I had the snapper and my fiancé ordered the chicken breast. Wish we had taken photos of the main meals however we were too keen to dig in. Enjoyed the New York cheesecake to share for desert, very nice. Highly recommend. We will definitely be back :)

Quiet, warm, clean, spacious, and a comfortable bed, with a great view down to the lake. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had 3 nights mid-winter and enjoyed the nearby bush walks, Tokaanu hot pools, birdlife and tranquility.

Well off 'the beaten track', Braxmere shares a bay on the southern shore of Lake Taupo with the Maori community of Waihi. We had a very comfortable stay and could have easily extended our stay a few more days. Best to unpack car early as the parking by each unit is shared and tight so take care when parking. If you intend to stay for breakfast at Lakehouse, which is very good, book your breakfast before 10am to get best selection of breakfast options. After 10am the lunch menu is provided.
