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!!

Booked in for my wife's birthday and it turned out to be a delightful spot to celebrate and have some chill out time. Gary was an awesome host who served delicious wine & hors d'oeuvres each evening, as well as making great restaurant recommendations and making the bookings for us. Breakfast was a treat to start the day and all in all, Lake Taupo Lodge exceeded our expectations.

Higher end home stay / bed and breakfast style accommodation. Food was amazing! Hosts were welcoming. We left with a tub of delicious trout pate. Views of the lake from our room. A great place for high achievers and hard workers to stay.

Wanting to escape from "real life" for awhile we booked into the Lake Taupo Lodge for three nights. It was a beautiful location with an amazing garden - appreciated your hard work Shirley - and lovely views of the lake. It felt like a real sanctuary. Gary was an attentive host and Chris was on hand to provide delicious food when required. We very much enjoyed our stay.
