We love RiverView B&B and I am so happy that we chose it as a base for our time at Taupo. Bonnie is a lovely lovely lovely lady that has such a big personality, warm heart and a great sense of humour. We stayed 3 nights at the B&B and felt like it was a visit to our family almost...

We've stayed only for one night (unfortunately), but of all nice places we've stayed during our NZ trip this one was by far the most welcoming and enjoyable. We were 4 people and had both rooms booked, they were very clean and had everything you need with our own bathroom, and a great view over the river in the mornings...

The house is beautiful lokated on a hill with a great view to the river and the landscape below. All the rooms are very beautiful, the bathroom is excellent. Breakfast lovely. Bonnie, the owner, is a unbeliefable openminded woman, very helpful and friendly. She wants that her guests feel very comfortable in her house. And we did! I can recommend...

If you are staying in Taupo make sure to stay at the riverview B&B. Bonnie is a very special, warmhearted and lively hostess. The latter can't be said about her rather sluggish, yet adorable cat :-). The riverview b&b definitively lives up to its name once you enjoy the astonishing view from the winter garden while indulging in a hearty...

We only had one night at Bonnie's B&B but were made to feel very welcome. The bedroom was large and very comfortable with a roomy private bathroom. Great location, within walking distance to Taupo CBD. The rear of the house overlooks the beautiful Waikato river; breath-taking views. Bonnie was very friendly and welcoming. I had sprained my ankle the day...

Behind the door of this unassuming home is the most wonderful BnB, with an incredibly welcoming host who greeted us like family and an incredible view over the river. Bonnie was so accommodating and we loved having a chat with her over breakfast (delicious!) each morning and hearing her recommendations for the area.

This is the best B & B that I have ever stayed, and it's really like our home in New Zealand. Not only because of its equipment or location, but also (and most important) because of its wonderful host Bonnie, very passionate and knowledgeable about Taupo. We really miss her and her lovely house.

Such a great location and a beautiful house maintained by an even more beautiful person. Bonnie is the best host we have met in our entire North Island journey. Always so ready to help, chirpy and full of kind words. The best part about this place is its a 2 minute walk from the Taupo bungee and has a wonderful...

Had a great two days at Riverview with Bonnie, nothing was too much trouble for her and she shared her local knowledge with us. Made our stay in Taupo a very enjoyable epxerience. Fantastic view of the river from the lounge.

I have been home over a week now from when we stayed here and I am still talking about Bonnie and her Riverview B&B. She made us feel very much at home as soon as we walked into her beautiful home with a lovely view of the Waikato River. What made it even better was the good weather we had...
