It has took me a while but I am finally getting around to reviewing my accommodation from my holiday 6 months ago!
I arrived about 8pm and was greeted by John who was very helpful and even offered to carry my suitcase up the stairs, what a gent! I had booked the Dickens room and was more than happy with the size of it, I had spent a lot of my holiday driving so it was really nice to have such a large comfy bed with millions of cushions, it was super cozy. John even made me feel better about the speeding ticket I had just been issued ( which I did appeal and was unsuccessful!) the room was very nicely decorated and clean throughout. My only issue was finding a spare plug socket to charge my tablet so that it would reach the bed but this for me was no big deal.
John and Jane recommended a place to eat just a short walk from the BnB so I took there advice and had dinner there.
The ensure was a good size with a walk in shower and all the amenities needed if you had forgotten to bring your own.
Breakfast the next day was served in the kitchen diner and consisted of fruit, toast and a very nice cooked breakfast curtesy of Jane, and some freshly squeezed apple juice made from apples from the back garden. Jane sat and chatted with me for a bit and recommended a few activities on the way to my next destination which was Roturua, it was a shame I wasn't staying longer as during the booking process Jane had suggested a few day excursions including lake fishing and wild pig hunting but alas my budget and time frame prevented me from taking advantage of either.
All in all I found the Loft to be excellent value for money and even though it was just outside of the main Taupo town area in Acacia Bay I found this to be better as it was very peaceful and less touristy.
I would also point out that they have a wonderful little dog who I think is called Timmy who was very well behaved and super cute but just to be aware of this if you are not a dog person!
