This stunning property and location were ideal for our company directors retreat.
We had excellent service, food, drinks and great conversations with Gary.
In addition, we visited some fabulous restaurants and got to try clay shooting!
I highly recommend Lake Taupo Lodge. It was simply a brilliant experience!

A truly unique and wonderful stay for my husband's 70th birthday celebrations. The thoughtfulness and kind welcome surpassed all our expectations. Garry pulled out all the stops when approached by our daughter in England to trim our room to perfection with wine, chocolates and balloons in abundance topped with a delightful birthday card. Very marvelous indeed Garry! Thank you so much
The food was delicious and the chef very friendly and accommodating of my dietary needs!
The room itself was glorious, quiet and comfortable and little touches like roses from the garden on our pillows topped this brilliant stay!
A return is definitely on the cards!!
Thank you all at Lake Taupo Lodge!

After an adventure run around Tongariro, we decided to treat ourselves and stay at the lodge - it was the perfect and relaxing way to end the trip. Gary's hospitality is wonderful and the chefs food was delicious. Highly recommend!

What a stunning and peaceful location! We visited Lake Taupo Lodge as a treat while staying during the Home & Garden Show. Gary was a welcoming host and always happy to help. We has our 11 month old daughter with us and they made us all feel at ease and that her curious nature was not a problem.
Breakfast every morning was cooked to perfection and what a selection! We would definitely recommend this location if your looking for a special spot, over looking the lake and the lights of town.
