We spent two wonderful, relaxing days at Lake Taupo Lodge at the end of December 2021. Having visited Taupo numerous times over the years this visit was the antithesis of the standard lake front hotel accommodation in the best possible way.
Located in Acacia Bay, a short drive from the town centre, we had direct views of lake and beautiful gardens from our bedroom and balcony. The rooms are nicely appointed with the overall scheme taking cues from Frank Lloyd Wright.
The breakfast and canapes were 5 star - fresh and delicious. No request was too much or too hard for the chef who was so obliging.
Attention to detail - (fresh towels, flowers and chocolates on pillows), music at breakfast and canape / cocktail hour completed the charm of the experience.
Our stay was made all the more special by the hosts, Gary and Shirley who were welcoming, informative and so hospitable. Thank you very much for such a memorable end to our year.
Had a fabulous few nights. Lake view suite is great, fabulous views, very comfortable. Breakfasts delicious, canapés and wine delicious. Gary and Shirley perfect hosts. Such a relaxing environment and only 6 minutes from central Taupo.
A truly unique and wonderful stay for my husband's 70th birthday celebrations. The thoughtfulness and kind welcome surpassed all our expectations. Garry pulled out all the stops when approached by our daughter in England to trim our room to perfection with wine, chocolates and balloons in abundance topped with a delightful birthday card. Very marvelous indeed Garry! Thank you so much 😊
The food was delicious and the chef very friendly and accommodating of my dietary needs!
The room itself was glorious, quiet and comfortable and little touches like roses from the garden on our pillows topped this brilliant stay!
A return is definitely on the cards!!
Thank you all at Lake Taupo Lodge! 😊
I took my husband to Lake Taupo Lodge for a night of 5 star indulgence and we were not dissapointed.
The Pine Suite was glorious and the added requested touches were spectacular!
Although we couldn't have the evening meal at the Lodge, a reservation was made at a great little restaurant in Taupo where the food was delightful.
Marvelous canapes were served before we went out for dinner and a super little dessert was prepared for our arrival back to the Lodge after dinner. Fabulous.
Roses from the garden were put on our pillows, which was such a romantic touch.
Thank you so much Garry and Shirley for our night to remember, and thank you Chris for a super breakfast.

My 3 daughters and I stayed at Lake Taupo Lodge for 3 nights and enjoyed fantastic breakfasts cooked by a very talented chef we also had canapes and wine each evening!! Our suites could not of been any cleaner,bath robes and slippers were provided, as were excellent snacks, the views overlooking the lake are quite breathtaking, during our stay there was a concert however no noise reached our accommodation, and it is a very short car journey into the town. I can recommend this lodge and we will be return in the near future!!
