“Loved it, despite the weather!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

We stayed here for a night, and the hosts were very helpful (calling tours for us, etc.), were lovely to chat with, and provided some nice treats as it was our honeymoon.

We spent some quality time with the animals the next morning, and loved the tranquility of the farm. The whole place was very well taken care of.

Room Tip: We stayed in the stand-alone cottage; it was very large, well provisioned, and comfortable.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

A hot tub for after completing the Tongariro Pass, when I said we wouldn't be able to cook breakfast she prepared salads and left us steaks for the BBQ, the lodge is located directly next to the Alpaca fence and we fed them every morning when we woke up, and the beds were so comfy. I stayed with my parents in the cottage when on vacation, and the owners were friendly, helpful, accommodating and an absolute pleasure to stay with.

Away from the bustle of Taupo, Bellbird Ridge is surrounded by beautiful countryside. We stayed in the cottage which is self contained,private and overlooks the beautiful garden. It's very well appointed for self catering and there is also a BBQ which we used one evening to grill steaks to entertain some friends staying in a nearby accommodation.
All ingredients for breakfast are supplied from fresh fruit and yogurt to a full cooked English.
Rex and Donna are very hospitable hosts and Rex races cars and gave us complimentary tickets to go to Taupo race track to see him race.
What a find!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2011

Bellbird Ridge B&B is located in the hills surrounding Taupo. We stayed in the cottage separate from the main house which was well appointed and had a full kitchen. The cottage overlooks a gorgeous garden and is very private. We also enjoyed seeing and feeding the alpacas and sheep. Rex and Donna invited us over for dinner one night, which was lovely. They were excellent hosts.
