Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The view from the lodge of the lake is amazing! We were contacted before arrival by Daniel and then greeted at the door & offered complementary drinks before being shown around. The facilities were excellent, we had a double room with a lake view, a dressing/storage area as well as an ensuite. There was also a kitchen shared between us and one other room. The communal areas were lovely with a spacious living area, dining area and balcony with hot tub. Daniel was happy to answer any questions we had about the local area & gave us tips on where was best to see the fireworks for new year. We would highly recommend!

We had a great experience at Tauhara Lodge. We had a very large cottage room with a huge bathroom and gorgeous views of Lake Taupo. Daniel was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is a few minutes drive outside of town and was very convenient.

The view from the property was stunning. We ended up staying in the cottage separate from the main house which is a beautiful space - far nicer than we could have hoped.
