Loved the private spa pool that came with the unit. Also I was impressed by the cleanliness of the unit and it’s close proximity to town. The hosts were very hospitable. Would stay again.

The people here are very friendly, and the best part about this lodge is the view over the lake and the hot springs tub on the patio. I used the hot springs tub every night, which was needed after some massive hikes. The room was comfortable, and it came with a mini kitchen, which was useful for when I wanted to just relax at the room. The lodge is just a short drive to downtown Taupo with lots of cute cafes and things to do. Would recommend staying here when going through Taupo!
