Taupo Garden Lodge
Ranked #33 of 42 Taupo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 February 2008

We stayed at Taupo Garden Lodge for 3 nights. It's a lovely property with a gorgeous garden set in a secluded and quiet part of the town, a complete antidote to the brashness of Taupo town.
The hosts William and Suzanne are delightful and made us feel very welcome. They can't do enough for you and always have good suggestions for activiites and places to eat. It's true New Zealand hospitality at its best.
We stayed in the Garden Suite which is an annexe to the main house. It gave us everything we needed; a comfortable bed (with wonderful pillows), space to sit both inside and out with privacy, and whilst the bathroom may be on the small side it's perfectly acceptable - it even has a lovely view.
Breakfasts were taken with William and Suzanne; great food and lively conversation which made a great start to each day.
If you want somewhere with a unique charecter and real New Zealand hospitality this is a great place to stay.

I had some misgivings when I booked, but this was a convenient stop off point -- I should have listened to myself, and looked more closely at the photos. Outdated and old accommodation, a musty smell which permeated everywhere including the bed, cramped bathroom, very average food, hosts living in another era. Significantly overpriced and an anomally compared to other Heritage Lodges. This property is way past its sell by date.
