Due to some mutual miscommunication we arrived a day early but the owner greeted us warmly and graciously and he did everything he could to make us feel welcome. The Lodge was actually a magnificent home and the room was wonderful, with an outstanding view of Lake Taupo, and had every amenity. This is a very personal and intimate accommodation and you feel more like house guests that paying guests. The food was outstanding. We arrived feeling like customers and left feeling like friends. A wonderful !

Lake Taupo Lodge is a "lodge" by New Zealand standards which means that 1) it is hosted by the resident owner 2) guests dine together at a meal prepared by the chef (no menu) 3) there is a "lodge experience" which include a more imitimate atmosphere and setting than a strictly commercial operation.So it really is a question of expectations. The Lodge is in a residential area on a hill with beautiful lake views. The grounds are filled with gardens and paths that are a wonder. Designed and built as a lodge with many comfortable public areas, the bedroom where we stayed for 3 nights was one of the nicest of our 5 1/2 week trip. However, it was the food artfully prepared by Stephan that took the prize. While the breakfasts were a delight with banana cinnamon pancakes, the dinners

Lake Taupo Lodge is nothing like what you see on the website. It is not a lodge, but a bed and breakfast. From the web page you are led to believe it is a lakeside lodge designed by Frank Lloyed Wright with a spa and luxury suites. It is extremely expensive. What we found when we arrived was a house on a suburban street with a view of the lake, but quite far away. We were not helped with our luggage and waited over 30 minutes to be checked in while the proprietor was on the phone. We paid over four thousand dollars (NZ) for a two night stay and were given a room next to the public bathroom with no view of any kind. We were charged and extra 200 dollars per night for our 8 year old child. There was not even a bath tub or a coffee plunger in our room. As for the spa, if

STayed 2 nights in one of the new rooms, which was very large and quite nice, with a deck overlooking the lake. Food was fantastic, service was excellent. Lodge is small, cozy and very one on one oriented. Location is very nice, perched on a hill overlooking the lake.
