Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had the downstairs 2 bed apartment with lounge. Exceptionally clean. Had a garden patio. Well equipped with usual free tea and coffee making facilities, great! even down to the toiletries in the bathroom cabinet and the dressing gowns in the master bedroom (both are good rooms). Great tips from the hosts on where to go, eating and what to see. Friendly and warm couple who provided a great breakfast each morning (continental but varied and you won't go hungry). Parking is available and Its a stroll into town either via lake front down the road or through a couple of residential roads (it's a very nice area!) If you want to get there quickly. Thank you for everything Maggie and Ivan, it was a great final few days for us in our NZ trip. Loved Taupo and the surrounding area.

We rented the downstairs suite which is quite spacious. Everything is squeaky clean. There's gear to make tea and coffee in the room, a fridge etc. The bathroom is large enough but lacks a spot to put your toiletries. The bed is comfy and big enough for tall persons. The hosts, Maggie & Ivan prepare delicious breakfasts and provide you with those little extras that make a B&B special. Excellent advice about restaurants and activities, some ointment to alleviate the itch from mosquito bites for my wife, information about road conditions for our further travels and the like. This is a place you'd recommend your friends to go to!

Maggie and Ivan at " Above the Lake" WE were in the Garden Suite downstairs bedroom bathroom and small living space, another double room in the suite not occupied but would be good for a family so we spread ourselves out. All the usual tea and coffee making facilities and a jug of fresh milk in the fridge Continental breakfast upstairs in their family space lovely light and airy with a gorgeous garden Ate breakfast with M&I and they were lovely hosts v informative After we did the Tongarira Alpine Crossing and returned happy and v tired they gave us wine and beer and we sat in their hot tub to ease our aches and pains 4 night great stay highly recommended

We stayed here at the beginning of November 2016. Arrived after a long drive and Ivan gave us a very warm welcome. Our first floor room was spacious with good sitting area with sofa, fridge, tea/coffee etc. and wonderful panoramic view of the lake. Large bathroom with 'goodies', spa bath and separate shower. We were very pleasantly surprised to find the bar/restaurant immediately next door where we had an excellent dinner which saved us driving back into town. Maggie's breakfast was excellent too!

We stayed here for one night in the downstairs 2-bedroom apartment, which was clean, comfy, and roomy. Ivan and Maggie are very friendly and welcoming and the continental breakfast was excellent. Although the property is set back some way from the waterfront, it is situated almost next door to a wonderful restaurant, The Mole and Chicken which does the most amazing food with huge portions.

We had such a warm welcome from Maggie and Ivan and our room was just perfect with a lounge area, bedroom and a large bathroom. It was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable, we had an excellent night's sleep. It was lovely to sit in the garden and enjoy a cup of tea on arrival which made us feel very much at home. We were delighted with Ivan and Maggie's suggestion of a place to eat in Taupo, it could not have been better. Our visit ended with a lovely breakfast that really set us up for the day. Thank you Maggie and Ivan for a really enjoyable stay.

I stayed here for two nights 13th & 14th Jan during my trip to NZ. Maggie and Ivan made me very welcome and my room had a lovely view across the lake. They gave me lots of advice about where to go and what to do which was most helpful, also Ivan is a whiz with IT and helped me out when my Kindle started playing up. Next door is a very good restaurant The Mole & Chicken which means that you can have that extra glass of wine with no driving!!!! A very good place to stay with excellent views over the lake and excellent hospitality from Maggie & Ivan.

We really enjoyed our two night stay, the view is amazing and the room was very comfortable. Maggie offered us a ride into town and gave us a quick tour. As we were on motorcycle it was nice to leave it in the garage. She gave us great suggestions of things to do in the area and Ivan gave us discount coupons for the hot pools. Thanks much for your hospitality.
