I could not believe this place! It's description on the internet is totally false. It is an old, cheaply built suburban house, which happens to be located by the lake. It recently had a name change from Paeroa luxury lodge to Acacia Bay lakefront luxury lodge. We have stayed in many backpacker accommodation which is far superior to this place... More

Wow! What a view across the bay from the room. Beautiful location outside Taupo, ideal base to explore the area. Superb quality B&B. Barbara and John made us most welcome throughout our stay. Highly recommended, a great place to stay.

The room also a balcony, a huge bath with separate shower and large whirlpool tub, and a walk in closet-dressing room. The home... More

Met by Barbara & John, who were most welcoming hosts. The quality of the penthouse was of a very high standard with a balcony with a most breathtaking view over Lake Taupo. Barbara & John were very helpful on what to see & where to eat in the Taupo area. Excellent breakfasts and a great place to stay.

John and Barbara are excellent hosts with a wealth of local knowledge that helps to make a visit complete.The balcony room overlooking Taupo is the room of choice. We would try to stay with them if we visited Taupo region again.

We decided to book at Acacia Bay Lodge as a "spoil" at the end of our New Zealand trip. At $NZ320 per night, it was certainly more expensive than some other excellent places we'd stayed in both islands and also amongst the most expensive in Taupo. For the price, the stay was extremely disappointing. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite,... More
