A last minute booking and it was well worth it. Arrived late in afternoon so booked in for dinner at restaurant in hotel. Room was good except in the bathroom where the shower screen sat on bath - had missed the cleaning cloth, but otherwise the room was excellent.
Meals were really good in restaurant, reasonably priced and plenty of choice. Drinks list good too.
Bed was comfortable, room quiet.
Breakfast was included in rate and was excellent.
Would recommend staying here, and would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Close to town centre, but far enough away to be quiet. Very friendly staff

Another Lac Taupo run, another stay (5th or 6th year) at Lakeland. Great as usual Elegant and professional Gill greets you, Ritchy was in deck and came to say hi....
Again our room was what you expect, clean, roomy.
Met Raewyn and Barry the owners and able to have a chat...Menu was varied and portions ok (pasta could be little bit on the larger side maybe for cyclist?)

Possibility to have drinking chocolate in the room maybe?
To be made aware breakfast doors were opened before 6.30 for wee coffee would have been handy
Already looking to our next visit to Taupo and join our loyalty program.

This is the place to stay n Taupo.....:o)

Visited with a car club, good parking for lots of cars. Comfortable rooms recently refurbished. Friendly and helpful staff. All you can eat buffet breakfast. Standard fare. Could have used about extra blanket as was cold as electric blanket only had 1 control so could not have it on just on 1 side.

We (3 couples from the Lion City) just drove into Taupo looking for accommodations for two nights (1st & 2nd Sep2013). After four checks at various places, we were still not happy with the accommodations offered to us. We actually had shortlisted some accommodations from Trip Advisor and AA Guide for Accommodations.

We finally pulled into the driveway of Lakeland Resort Taupo. Here we were greeted by pretty Gill, a lovely front desk staff. Three beautiful rooms were accorded to us. Tried as she did, Gill could not get the three rooms next to each other. Anyway they were close by, so it's ok.

The 2nd day at Taupo, Gill and the Manager Julie (hope we got her name correct........sorry, met so many people on our trip) helped to book us on the Ernest Kemp lake cruise and Maori Rock Carving viewing.

That evening we had a soak in the resort's spa pool. It's was so great and everyone enjoyed themselves. Next, Gill also booked us for dinner at the resort's restaurant. The double Lamb Shank was to die for.......just melts in your mouth feeling.

Overall we had a wonderful and memorable time at Lakeland Resort Taupo.

Thank you Gill, we love you. Cheers !

Needed a one-night stopover on a road trip with a friend. Rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast buffet was plentiful and of good quality. We were allocated two upstairs units next to each other and were both happy with them. Recommended
