We went here for a little retreat during the long weekend and it was absolutely heavenly! The atmosphere and gorgeous view of the lake were just amazing, as well as the beautifully kept garden. The hosts Gary and Sherlie, as well as the staff Chris and Gina were so friendly and definitely made us feel at home. The breakfast was just so delicious as well! Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting!

Chris's cooking is down to earth and hands down the best food I've had in NZ luxury lodges. Gary and Shirley were very warm hosts, and the garden is impeccable, perfect for morning yoga/taichi. Just a stone's throw away from Wairakei golf course and Kinloch, perfect for golf enthusiasts.

My wife and I stayed at the Lake Taupo Lodge in late January, 2020 for two nights. We were touring New Zealand for four weeks. When we pulled into the driveway the owner Gary came out and greeted us by name. "We've been expecting you. So glad you'll be staying with us. How was your drive?" I've traveled extensively around the world in recent years and never, ever experienced such a friendly reception at any place of lodging. I almost started to laugh. But, I didn't as I quickly realized Gary was sincere in his uncommon hospitality. But it also wasn't an overbearing hopitality. Our room had a beautiful view of the lake in the distant. The grounds are a botanical delight. We didn't have dinner there which was unfortunate because I'm certain it would have been

During our 5 week trip to New Zealand this has to be the best Lodge/B&B we stayed in. Gary and Shirley are hosts were delightful. Chris the Chief a master of breakfast and pre-dinner canapes. We really loved our stay in our beautiful lodge overlooking the garden and lake. Although situated 5 minutes from the main town it was worth it in every way. If I am every lucky enough to visit NZ again, I am definitely head back to Lake Taupo Lodge.

What a beautiful property and amazing gardens. We loved the peacefulness and the hospitality at Lake Taupo Lodge. Gary could not have been more helpful and the breakfasts and pre-dinner drinks were a lovely touch. The lodge is a little way out of town so you would need to drive or get taxis into town for dinner, but the advantage is the view of the lake. A real experience.
