We stopped here for the night on our way to Hawkes Bay. We had booked the ground floor room so as to have the outdoor spa....but it was absolutley freezing in Taupo when we arrived so we asked to be tranferred upstairs to a spa bath room. Owner was more than helpful.The bathrooms are huge and the overall rooms are spacious enough. The only thing that I feel was not quite right was the term "luxury" accommodation.....having stayed many places I guess one finds many establishments have their own way of rating their quality and it isn't a consistent ruling at all. This is still a lovely place to stay...but when I think of luxury I guess I see more to it.
It is well located and has views to the lake and mountains.
