Reviewed September 22, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed here for 2 nights with with our parents, children and grandchildren. It a beautiful big place with plenty of rooms. Well equipped kitchen stocked with some goodies.
Plenty of towels,bathrobes and toiletries supplied. The hot pool was a real success. If there's any negatives to say it would be that the kitchen bin is too small and we couldn't find a high chair. If you have little ones maybe email them first. Great place can truly recommend!

“Great spot, right on the lake”
Reviewed June 24, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We've been regulars at Greenwood for many years and it's consistently top-notch. You have space to spread out, the thermal pool is wonderfully relaxing, and the kitchen's big enough and equipped enough to entertain without hassle. Visit in winter when you'll really appreciate the pool and the fireplace. It's a little run-down in places, but then it's a '30s property so I call that character!

“Wonderful property - Amazing location ”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Greenwood Lodge. Plenty of space for the 5 couples that stayed there and everything is so pristinely presented. Sue and Tuk wonderful to deal with and we're looking forward to planning our next break away there!

“Really nice group accommodation”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I have been coming to Greenwood up to twice a year for probably the last 12 years. It truly is a great place to stay either for a group or with family. The thermal pool (reasonably common in Taupo) is a real feature, and the furnishings have had a recent tidy up. (The TV could do with an upgrade though.) Since the old Crown Road motorway has opened, you don't get the big trucks thundering past any more. The property management is always friendly and easy to deal with.

“Peaceful & Private”
Reviewed March 20, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My partner and I stayed at Greenwood for three nights, only a short distance from the centre of Taupo but the privacy and peacefulness what just what we needed. What a great place for a family to stay, lots of space and fully fenced to keep all the kids in. The lake is right on your doorstep and staying there made us feel like we were in our own little world.

“A mothers dream come true..”
Reviewed December 5, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed at the Lodge with friends 14 years ago and on returning with family of 12 this last weekend it was as it was 14yrs ago..The WOW factor..It takes your breath away and yet so welcoming and family friendly. NOT minimalistic at all but totally French country feel and for 2 days we never left the property. The view is fabulous and our host Tuk was superb with all amenities catered for. Have already rebooked for March 2016 to return this time with the same 10 friends for my 60th..Excited already!!!
Couldn't get the exterior gates to work or the dishwasher and awning needs some TLC.

“Excellent House and Location”
Reviewed October 28, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our third stay at Greenwood Lodge. Right on the water front, close to town, this is a charming house that can easily accommodate 8 people.
The house has all you need in terms of linen,towels, kitchen utensils along with generous day 1 supplies.
The house is warm all year round and has a small hot water pool inside.
Well worth a stay!
