We had a couple of nights here and enjoyed it very much indeed. We were made to feel very welcome and given good advice about what to do and where to eat. There was a big group staying and so we were upgraded to a chalet, out of the way, and were not disturbed by them. Would definitely go back...

Stayed in one of the chalets for two nights. Superb views over Lake Taupo through the floor to ceiling glass windows in both the living and bedrooms. Cheryl and Phil were great hosts, delivering breakfast every day sometimes helped(?) by the two dogs Harley and Neo!
