This is hands down, one of the most amazing places, we've ever stayed at. The surroundings, the people, food are all first class. As soon as you arrive you are warmly greeted with champagne & shown around. Although a high class lodge, it has a very relaxed feel & you can wear smart casual clothing & feel comfortable We can't wait to return, this time for the weekend!

We had a wonderful two nights at Huka Lodge recently. It is beautifully located, nestling beside the Waikato just above the impressive Huka Falls. The room was stunning, comfortable and stylish. The food world class.

Stayed 2 nights here over Labour weekend. Has been on our list for a long time, and the opportunity arose when the Border closure meant access for Kiwi's was a little easier. A sensational 2 days fro the moment we arrived. Have never experienced service like it. The Lodge was full for the weekend...full of a wide range of NZérs enjoying their own backyard, and it was great to chat in the Lounge around the fire after what were 2 nights of amazing culinary excellence. Cottages are awesome, right on the river, and we've never heard the "Birdsong"like it at sunrise each morning. There were so many extra touches, each one shows why they are consistently in the Top 10 Lodges in the World. Wow...we need to get back there

We had the pleasure of enjoying a night at this beautiful Lodge. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like we were the only guests, handed a glass of champagne and then taken on a tour and to our room by the General Manager. The canapes and drinks were fabulous then on to a stunning five course dinner. The rooms are exquisite, the service is outstanding with delightful staff who are extremely professional but with a personality. The General Manager, Kerry is an absolutely asset to the Lodge and was so accommodating at assisting us get to the National Equestrian Centre and into Taupo, even offering to come back and pick us up ..... all after we had technically checked out. Breakfast was enjoyed in the 'queens' room and lunch outside by the fire. We didn't want to leave. Still dreaming of our wonderful experience. Thank you Kerry and your team, your super stars and showcase incredible New Zealand hospitality.

We went for a long-anticipated weekend and the room and lodge and grounds and staff were absolute perfection. Breakfast was wonderful, pre dinner drinks in front of the fire, lunch on the terrace; all gorgeous. But dinner...First night was nice but I honestly can't remember it - which is unlike the previous time we had dinner there, 20 years ago which I can recite, course by course because it was so fabulous. And the second night - luke-warm vegetarian; very pretty but bland, muted, and we gave up half way through. There is not much to be said for the concept of "Chef knows best" when this is the result. Would love to come back, but while this model of dining is in place, we won't be. Staff are AMAZING, though.
