My husband and I spent 3 nights and loved every minute of it. Wayne and the staff were just great. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and our every expectation was met. Graham the general manager was always helpful and Chef Bruce served meals that were outstanding and beautifully presented. He has even sent me some recipes since I returned home.
The location of the Solitaire Lodge is stunning. Our suite overlooked Lake Tarawera and could not have been better. Large picture windows provided a beautiful setting. The beauty of the area is hard to describe.
The lodge owns several boats, so access to the Lake Tarawera is easy. We hiked, fished and just explored each day. The Lodge is happy to arrange excursions for you. They don't know the word "no".
We had a marvelous time, highly recommend Solitaire Lodge, and hope to return someday.
