  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very pleasant accommodation

We had three nights here and were made to feel welcome by Robert. He cooked us a nice breakfast and offered us a glass of wine each evening which was a lovely gesture. Our room was large and well furnished, we appreciated the cotton sheets. Robert gave us guidance as to where to visit in the locality. There is a small shared fridge and communal tea and coffee facilities for visitors.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful location in a quiet rural setting

A beautiful spot to rest after a great concert in Taupo with wonderful hospitality to match from Rob and Gail. Nesttled in park like grounds with an amazing outdoor area to relax and chat over a wine or two with the hosts and other guests staying. The oppurtunity to soak in a discretly placed outdoor spa under the stars if so wished added to the luxury. A beautifully furnished spacious room and onsuite to match.

Pros: The private location away from the main hussle and traffic yet close to Taupo and wounderful restaurants.

5/5 Excellent

Superb !

We arrived to a perfect location, situated above Taupo with spectacular views and a fantastic garden .... The hosts are fabulous, they really made us feel welcome. We enjoyed every minute there. We could even stay for dinner, and can really recommend this. We have travelled the South and North Island and this place is certainly one of the absolute highlights.

Pros: The quiet and beautiful environment, stunning views, fantastic garden. Perfect rooms and comfort.

Cons: Nothing I can think of ...

Location: Taupo is close and offers a variety of activity in the lake, the thermal areas, hiking, ... We recommend to stay minimum 2 days to explore / enjoy.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful attention to detail

Pros: The facility was well appointed and the owners are warm, friendly and talented hoteliers. I'm taking some design lessons from their layout.

Cons: No negatives really , up high on the hill away from the town center.

Location: A short drive up the hill from Taupo. Nice grounds and very peaceful.
