We enjoyed a delightful 3 day stay with Gary and Shirley as our gracious hosts. We felt very much at home with a very personal comfy ambience. Nothing was too much trouble for Chris who was whipping up a storm in the kitchen with scrumptious breakfasts and tasty pre dinner canapés shared with other guests over a convivial glass of...

Truly a gem. This property is gorgeous and extremely well maintained from interiors of rooms and suites(those are a must they have a nice patio overlooking the beautiful garden) to the spacious public areas. The morning breakfasts and afternoon wine are added treats. The hosts could not of been more gracious and helpful including calling cabs and making diner reservations....

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the lodge, our room, the lodge and the grounds were as beautiful as they appeared in the online pictures. What was not expected was the wonderful hospitality that we received from Gary and his chef Chris, both of them helped make our time in Lake Taupo something we won't soon forget....

Absolutely loved the personal attention and the catering on offer. Great views of the lake and the grounds. The amenities in the Lloyd Suite were of the highest quality and offered a welcome respite from the unseasonal weather, as did the facilities in the other parts of the property.

In January we stayed at Lake Taupo Lodge for two nights. The Lodge is in a fantastic position overlooking the lake, beautiful gardens and our room was beautiful, with a lot of attention to detail. Breakfast was amazing, and our host Gary was very helpful, and interesting. Hope to visit again in the near future.
