We stayed for 3 nights in early Jan and thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay in Taupo. I have always been a fan of the town and it sparkled in the summer sunshine. Kauri Point was excellent, I really do not have a lot to add to the comments of the previous guests. The situation was excellent, a bit of a drive out of town, and delightfully quiet. The hosts, Gail and Robert, could not have been more welcoming and were very happy to share their knowledge of the town and surrounding areas. A great tip for dinner at Bistro Lago (Hilton) as well.
The room was large, and very well appointed, there was all you could want. Plus the large deck if you fancied the sun. The evening drinks and canapes much appreciated. The bathroom was also of the highest standard. All in all, highly recommended.
Do try and get to the Bistro Lago for dinner. Not cheap (NZ these days I'm afraid) but great food and the view is superb.
