It is impossible to fault this place - the location, the ambience, the staff, the rooms and especially the food which is of a quality that could match most of the top restaurants. The location is private, adjacent to the fast flowing Huka River, the gardens are a joy to stroll in and for those inclined, there is a heated...

This is a very special place with a long history of hosting the world's most discriminating travelers. We loved Huka Lodge. The food is exquisite, but don't expect a big steak dinner. The included dinners are 5 course experiences to behold. There are several intimate spots to have your meals, both inside and outdoors. Be sure to eat on the...

Breath taking property! Dinner is served all through the resort. How unique. We had dinner one night my wife and myself in a private library room with a wood burning fireplace. It was the room used by Queen Elizabeth the 4 times she has been there. Also had dinner out side with a fireplace food was superb and the suite...

We've stayed at the Huka Lodge twice over the last eight years, and both experiences were exemplary. The lodge itself always has several fires roaring with the river flowing outside in the background. Each room is uniquely decorated and very inviting. It's the kind of place where you just want to hang out while reading a good book or chatting...

Huka Lodge is so beautiful! It is surrounded by nature with most (if not all) the rooms facing the Waikato River. The room is beautiful, the bed comfortable and the bathroom looks like it belongs in a home decor magazine. Just a few steps outside the room is the stunning Waikato River with the clearest waters I have ever seen....

Fantastic food, fantastic service, all in a beautiful setting. You need to stay at least two nights to get the full experience, and had the weather been better we would have participated in some of the lodge excursions. Before we stayed people had told me the interiors here were dated, however as a designer I felt it oozed character and...

We stayed at Huka Lodge for one night and there is no doubt that it is a very beautiful and well run hotel. The staff are extremely efficient and professional and only the best will do! We had a very nice dinner, and exceptional breakfast the next morning. For my taste though it was just a bit too showy and...
