Reviewed 8 June 2006

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.

Reviewed 20 May 2006

We stayed in this beautiful part of North Island for 4 nights on honeymoon in March 2006.

The owners, Neville and Sandy, were both very welcoming and booked some of our activities for us including the one-day Tongariro Crossing hike (definitely worth it!) and the Taupo Tandem Skydive (even more worth it!!). Both trips picked us up from outside the lodge too.

We stayed in a ground floor apartment with its own private garden complete with an outdoor natural spa water pool, which was really good to relax in after a day's walking. The lodge's swimming pool was also warm and relaxing.

The lodge is located on the airport side of Taupo and about 15 minutes walk from the town centre.

This was our best stay during our honeymoon and gave us the perfect start!
