In January we stayed at Lake Taupo Lodge for two nights. The Lodge is in a fantastic position overlooking the lake, beautiful gardens and our room was beautiful, with a lot of attention to detail. Breakfast was amazing, and our host Gary was very helpful, and interesting. Hope to visit again in the near future.

For our honeymoon, we visited beautiful New Zealand for one month spending three nights at Lake Taupo Lodge. The lodge is a small, high end boutique B&B. I believe there are only four rooms, which makes it private and quiet. It is located in a residential neighborhood. Hosts Gary and Shirley are exceptional: gracious and willing to help plan activities...

A traveler to some of the best parts of New Zealand, like Lake Taupo, should stay away from standard resorts. One of the best parts of this amazing land is the warm hospitality of its people: no place perhaps exemplifies that more than Lake Taupo Lodge. All the standard stuff is good: rooms, the view, the garden in front etc....

Do take a night or two here as respite from the travelling. Really beautiful. The hosts are absolutely committed to you having a restful time. Breakfast with other travellers is a nice touch and beautifully prepared. Stay. Relax and enjoy the spectacular views.

A wonderful blend of service, site and architecture with an aspect second to none over Lake Taupo. Gary and team make it feel like you can stay on for much longer. The grounds are in themselves a balm for any hectic schedule. Highly recommended.
