Fantastic property beautiful grounds extremely friendly and willing to accommodate in every way possible. Chris the chef was fantastic we had a huge breakfast made to order every day, no need for lunch. Ken helped with daily plans and arranging dinners. WiFi was recently improved and worked fine. Only 6 rooms and very spacious I would highly recommend and if returning to the area would definitely stay again below views from room

I cannot begin to express how much we enjoyed our stay with Gary & Shirley & their wonderful staff. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and pampered, and the room was impeccable and tastefully decorated, with a view over their magnificent gardens. Wandering through the footpaths of their property was magical. A sense of calm fell over both of us, and we even thought of throwing away our blood pressure pills! Breakfast was something that you excitedly looked forward to, just to see what chef Chris had concocted, every time beyond delicious. The staff went out of their way to be friendly & helpful. Truly the finest accommodations we’ve ever experienced, hands down, anywhere. World class. Thank you, Gary & Shirley!

Great breakfast, beautiful gardens, nice room (very clean, twice a day new towels), perfect host and chef in the kitchen. Too bad that the wifi was not working in the guestroom. Doesnt fit with the whole picture.

The lodge offers the best hospitality that we've experienced in NZ so far. Gary and Shirley make you feel very welcome in their home; whilst Chris makes the most fantastic breakfast and evening canapes. Overall, I would highly recommend this lodge in the Lake Taupo area.
