The lodge is very charming and impressive. Excellent view of Lake Taupo, beautiful garden, cozy furniture and interior. Breakfast was fresh, healthy and delicious. The most impressive experience was warm hospitality of the people. I enjoyed nice NZ wine and chat with Gray about various topics such as fishing, economy, geographical issues in north Asia etc. Chef was so kind to take care of the taste of me and my wife. The hospitality is unforgettable. Everything was perfect and it was a really fascinating experience at Lake Taupo Lodge!
My wife and I only had one night at Lake Taupo Lodge but Gary and Shirley were super hosts. We had a lovely room with a great view with sliding doors opening onto the garden and overlooking the lake. Good size room, very clean and tidy and everything you need. For breakfast Chris the chef will cook you whatever you want and is very accommodating. One night wasn’t long enough but I’m sure we will be back. Charlie & Charlotte
Gary was a gracious host who welcomed us into his home, provided excellent service with setting us up for dinners and transportation for a hike late in the day when we thought it could not be done. The rooms were very good, had nice views and privacy. We enjoyed breakfast, canapes and drinks in the evening and Chef Chris was amazing and prepared us an early breakfast in our rooms when we needed it and an amazing lunch when we took our hike. They clearly went above and beyond during our stay.
The owner and chef make you feel like one of the family. This is a beautiful part of the world and i would recommend LTL as a great place to stay. Fantastic personalised breakfast, i would recommend having it in the manicured gardens, so peaceful.
Love LTL - we first went 3 years ago becuase of the Frank LW inspired architecture - now we just love the place. Beautifully peaceful, inviting and warm. Super engaging owners, Gary is so very helpful and obliging. Chris the Chef is marvellous and a card ta boot! Gracious service and atmosphere.
