Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a wonderful stay at Belle Vue. Belle Vue is located just outside of Taupo in a quiet neighborhood. When we checked in, there was a cheese plate awaiting us on our bed. The views of Lake Taupo and the landscaping were magnificent. And Liz & Steve were excellent hosts. I would highly recommend staying there for any reason or occasion.

5 Star Accommodation!!!!!!!!!! The best place to stay, sumptuous, luxury, fantastic service, beds and linen the highest quality and so comfortable. The 3 course meal made us feel that we had died and gone to heaven, the lamb shanks feel apart, cooked to perfection. We will return Thanks to you both.

Liz & Steve are the consummate hosts and make your stay a well-run pleasure. The lodge is beautifully furnished and appointed. The balcony and chairs outside each room on the veranda are peaceful and a pleasure to sit and have a wine (or 2). The lodge does do a 3 course dinner and the food is superb and I would not bother going anywhere else to eat. Luxury pillows and a king sized bed make for a great sleep. A pity there is not an EV charge point, as the few in Taupo township are under heavy use with tourists.

Had the weekend with two other couples staying at Belle Vue Boutique Lodge. From the minute we walked in and were all welcomed by Liz and Steve our amazing weekend started. We were shown around the Lodge and it was more than expected. We were given a bottle of bubbles, cheese platter, box of chocolates and amazing three course dinner (which we could hardly eat... so much beautiful food) and then the next morning such a lovely breakfast. The rooms had stunning views of Lake Taupo and to a very high standard!! Would recommend this for a lovely weekend away with friends or a special night away with partner.

A warm welcome from Liz and Steve to their wonderful home. A true home from home with a comfortable room with its views from the balcony to Lake Taupo. There is asmall kitchenette as well Make sure to use their local knowledge The property is a few miles out of Taupo which makes it peaceful but there is a local pub which serves good food. There are take away options close by too

From the moment we arrived we loved our two night stay at belle Vue. The lodge and gardens are presented with elegance with stylish touches that you could tell were thought out everywhere. Liz and Steve were great hosts, friendly and welcoming. The quality of the food the icing on the cake. The rooms were generous and had everything you could need, plus things you did not know you needed. Sitting on the balcony overlooking Lake Taupo in the early evening with a wine or two was just the type of relaxation we were after to celebrate our wedding anniversary. regards Terry and Jodie.

A great location, beautifully presented lodge , internally and externally. The food and presentation are excellent. Sensational view of Lake Taupo from the window and balcony They have a sign on the wall saying "little things matter" and that seems to be their attitude towards their guests .
