We spent two nights at this Lodge recently and loved it. Our hosts Steve and Liz have created a beautiful place - it has charm and is in a great position overlooking the Lake. The gardens are gorgeous. It is immaculately presented, clean and comfortable, and every detail was thought of to make us feel at home. We could not fault the high standard of presentation. Steve and Liz were very welcoming and friendly, and our breakfasts and dinner were superb. A wonderful stay. We would absolutely recommend the Lodge to anyone visiting Taupo. Jilly and Gary, Auckland
The warm,friendly hosts,Liz and Steve,have created a welcoming haven with amazing attention to detail,great quality furnishings and decor and a glorious view. We have never stayed anywhere in the world where every possible need we might have has been anticipated and catered for like it was here. The beautiful white roses everywhere were lovely too. Had the best night’s sleep in months and left totally happy and relaxed
Someone else's body hair on our bed sheets!!!! I kept picking someone else's hair (and body hair too) from our bed sheets. Please see them yourself in attached photos. Some were blonde and some were gray. I picked about a dozen of them and then decided to tell the host. Female host was very rude and stormed into our room. She kept saying I had OCD and I should get checked. How dare you said something like that to your guests? We were speechless and felt offended. I thought our request was totally reasonable especially in the current COVID-19 pandemic. My wife felt so scared and unsafe that she could not sleep that night. We checkout early next morning without breakfast. I looked their review online and noticed they were always defensive if someone said anything negative so maybe that's why she did not like I pointed out the sheets were not clean. We will not recommend this place.…
We spent a night in Taupo and chosen to stay with Belle Vue Lodge ... this was a beautiful place with beautiful vibe which mostly created by the hosts Liz and Steve. I felt like spending a holiday in the good friend ‘s place ... The view was magnificent overlooking Taupo lake !! It was quiet through the day ! Good food and beautiful facility in the Lodge ... not to mention a great price !!! I will definitely come back for more next time in Taupo and will recommend more people to come to Belle Vue Lodge David and Asuka
We stayed for several nights at this spectacular Boutique Hotel over looking lake Taupo. We didn’t want to leave. The rooms were clean, spacious and have stunning decor The grounds to the lodge are beautifully manicured for guests to stroll through or just sit under the gazebo. The hosts offer dinner and breakfast at the property. We only had breakfast but it was the perfect start to each day. The lodges position is perfect, you can sit on the deck off your room overlooking the lake or take a short drive into town. The hosts Liz and Steve were so friendly and inviting that we would have no hesitation to go back again for a relaxing weekend or longer.
