We arrived into Taupo without accommodation but wanting to stay a few nights. We found Above the Lake on the net and could only get in for one night. We took it, the weather was not good and this place looked very inviting Ivan & Maggie were both there to greet us. We were given the Lake view room, it was perfect. Great sitting area c/w tea,coffee, tv and more importantly a really comprehensive folder, containing all we needed to plan a few days.
We were invited to have a glass of wine, it was lovely sitting in their beautifuly decorated sitting room with sweeping views of the lake, even on a rainy afternoon it was delightful. We didn't want to venture out to far for dinner so on Ivan & Maggies recommendation we ran (still raining) next door to the Mole & Chicken. We both had a great meal, slept like babies in a very comfy bed and woke to a great breakfast.
All in all couldn't recommend enough.
