This was the first time me and my partner stayed here, and we will definitely be back! Beautiful views of the lake, fantastic hospitality and a very comfortable room make it one of the best BnBs we've been to.

I don't normally write reviews, but I was compelled to after staying at Tauhara Sunrise Lodge. My partner and I stayed two nights this month and we were treated like royalty. After a long day on the road, we were so impressed by how accommodating hosts Daniel and Elena were. We were offered wine and a cheese platter on arrival,...

The hosts, Daniel and Elena were very lovely, I felt very welcome and at home. Especially the breakfast was nice that made by Elena. The lodge's view is really amazing, from day to night. The facilities in the room are good quality and clean.

Great for couples looking for a relaxing holiday. Includes breakfast and drnks and cheese and crackers in the evenings. Stayed in the cottage which had views of the lake from all areas of the cottage.

Awesome place to stay, very comfy bed (and we're fussy!!), cosy, lots of character and well priced! Probably one of the best value for money places I've stayed at in NZ, great place to stay but just affordable enough to make regular visits. Daniel & Elena were lovely. Will definitely be back!!

Stayed in Tauhara Sunrise just for one night as I passed through but really wished I'd booked for longer. It was a stand-out accomm with the added bonus of being one of the most welcoming places I had experienced in NZ (and pretty much else where). The place was so cozy and immaculate, with the stunning views of Lake Taupo...

We only had the address for this stop but their website gave good detailed instructions on how to find it, as it is a few kilometres outside Taupo. It is situated on a hill with commanding views of the lake and Taupo itself. We pulled up and the welcome could not have been more pleasant. What a lovely house /...

This is a purpose built B&B and what a place it is. The house is stunning with amazing terrace, lounge and breakfast room overlooking the lake. We could lie in bed and see across the lake through a huge picture window. We had a good bathroom, dressing area and a shared kitchen with tea, coffee etc free to help yourself....
