We were traveling with our dog and needed somewhere pet friendly and off the main road. The Lake fitted the bill well and was good value. We'll stay there again on our way home. There was a great cafe for brunch very close by.

Spacious digs near Lake Taupo
We stayed 3 nights here and found plenty to do in the area. We had a large suite, so good value for the money. The hosts were super nice. We needed a car to get to most places, however. We could park right outside our room. The 70’s decor was fun. We also liked sitting outside in the shared garden area, which was beautifully maintained.
