I don't normally write reviews, but I was compelled to after staying at Tauhara Sunrise Lodge. My partner and I stayed two nights this month and we were treated like royalty. After a long day on the road, we were so impressed by how accommodating hosts Daniel and Elena were. We were offered wine and a cheese platter on arrival,...

The hosts, Daniel and Elena were very lovely, I felt very welcome and at home. Especially the breakfast was nice that made by Elena. The lodge's view is really amazing, from day to night. The facilities in the room are good quality and clean.

Great for couples looking for a relaxing holiday. Includes breakfast and drnks and cheese and crackers in the evenings. Stayed in the cottage which had views of the lake from all areas of the cottage.

Awesome place to stay, very comfy bed (and we're fussy!!), cosy, lots of character and well priced! Probably one of the best value for money places I've stayed at in NZ, great place to stay but just affordable enough to make regular visits. Daniel & Elena were lovely. Will definitely be back!!

Stayed in Tauhara Sunrise just for one night as I passed through but really wished I'd booked for longer. It was a stand-out accomm with the added bonus of being one of the most welcoming places I had experienced in NZ (and pretty much else where). The place was so cozy and immaculate, with the stunning views of Lake Taupo...

We only had the address for this stop but their website gave good detailed instructions on how to find it, as it is a few kilometres outside Taupo. It is situated on a hill with commanding views of the lake and Taupo itself. We pulled up and the welcome could not have been more pleasant. What a lovely house /...

This is a purpose built B&B and what a place it is. The house is stunning with amazing terrace, lounge and breakfast room overlooking the lake. We could lie in bed and see across the lake through a huge picture window. We had a good bathroom, dressing area and a shared kitchen with tea, coffee etc free to help yourself....

Our favourite stop on our recent trip to NZ. A luxurious up market B&B a couple of miles outside Taupo in Acacia Bay with views of the lake and nearby Mt Tauhara to die for. Our room was superb and we enjoyed excellent attentive service from the friendly owners, Becky and Rob. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything the town...

We had a very wonderful stay! The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, breakfasts were delicious and very filling, and our room was very comfortable. The view was the best part! We sat on the patio both evenings and enjoyed the beautiful lake view while enjoying some drinks and snacks. We didn't want to leave! Also, we got up early...

We spent two nights here. The view from the bedroom was lovely but such a shame you had to shut it out to afford yourself some privacy whilst sleeping as room also looked out onto main driveway. Becci was a very friendly host and we wish her well with her new venture.
