Pros: The property was amazing. This was our first time in a B&B and we loved it. Nancy and John were the perfect hosts. They were so attentive and caring. The property is located on the outskirts of Taupo, but not too far, and is the perfect place to go to and relax and chill out after a long hike. The atmosphere was so relaxing and tranquil. The room was superb and breakfast was amazing. The house was also beautifully decorated for Christmas and it was gorgeous.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The place was fabulous, the nicest property we have stayed in, the room was palatial and there was a pool and tennis court. The biggest bathroom we have ever seen, super toiletries, luxurious bed and dressing room area. Absolutely lovely. John spent some time chatting to us the first night and they were very attentive.
Cons: The atmosphere was however a little unrelaxing unfortunately because in our opinion the hosts tried just a bit too hard and as a result they were over attentive, for example we had to pre-order breakfast by 7.30pm the night before and were chased if we didn't, despite there not really being that many options, and we were asked numerous times at what point in the breakfast we wanted our hot food so breakfast was unrelaxed and rather hushed. My husband unfortunately also dropped a plate of fruit and while John handled it well, Nancy seemed quite put out by it and we felt distinctly uncomfortable after that. Shame as the place is gorgeous and had it been a bit more relaxing it would have been idyllic.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We found them exceptionally friendly and hospitable. Did our washing and refused payment. Produced an excellent dinner since it was Christmas Day and the local restaurants were closed. Five star rating!

9,6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful house and grounds, fantastic service from John and Nancy, amazing breakfast (was a bit like being in Downton Abbey!). Also you have to try in inside slippery slide!
Cons: A proper door into the bathroom instead of the louvred one which lets light and sound through.
4,6 Okay
Pros: We liked nothing. It was not to cater for New Zealanders only nieve traveralers. This gives a bad impression of new Zealanders. New Zealand is not like this accomodation.
Cons: Hindu gods everywhere. Lady said she could cook and the omelet was well below par. The bed was hard. We felt uncomfortable. Paid for 2 nights and only stayed 1. We will not be using booking.com again. We have used them before but never again.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The property is lush and stunning with flowers, sheep and chickens. But the best part were the warm and welcoming hosts. The made to order breakfasts were superb...eggs from their chickens, hashbrowns, sausage, homemade mueseli and whatever else you could have wanted. Unfortunately the weather was less than perfect, but we were cozy by the fireplace with views of greenery in big comfy chairs. Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel right at home. We also enjoyed meeting a few other guests as they traveled through Taupo.
Cons: Only the weather
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely house in the quiet semi-rural outskirts of Taupo, just a 10 minute drive into town. Beautiful large suite with large bathroom, and overlooking the extensive gardens. Our hosts were great - we appreciated their recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. It really did feel like a private retreat.
Cons: Absolutely nothing.

Pros: Loved being right on the lake with such an amazing view. Bed was enormous and really comfortable. The bathroom had a jacuzzi which was lovely.
Cons: When I arrived the car park was full and I waited a while but ended up having to park way down the road and walk back with all my bags. Later in the evening it freed up so had to go and move my car. There was a bit of noise from people in the corridor. One restaurant was fully booked out with a function which meant the place felt quite packed.

Cons: Dirt on skirting boards behind table, and there was a dirt spot on floor of toilet that wasn't cleaned in the two days we were there
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The VU Thermal Lodge is right across the road from Lake Taupo, with views all the way to the mountains. Our room was on the first floor, room 16, so we had great views. The rooms were large, with a big bedroom and bed, a balcony with chairs and table to sit and watch the view on. It has a good kitchen, well stocked to cook your own meals in, and a separate dining area. The bathroom is good, and the shower large. Some rooms have your own personal thermal bath, but if like us you miss out on one, there is a thermal communal indoor bath, and an outdoor pool. The rooms are made up to feel like your own home away from home, which we really enjoyed. Good reverse cycle air conditioning as well!
Cons: A few more toiletries on offer would have been good, like a shower cap and separate shampoo and conditioner.
4,3 Okay
Pros: The beds were comfortable. New carpet. Close to town. Good heating for mid Autumn.
Cons: The Motel is old and shows it age. The spa pools were old and the water was yellow. The jug leaked. The hot water was too hot. The steps going to the upstairs landing were dangerous and old.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The mineral spa bath was fantastic - private and great housed behind the room in a separate space completely covered in (we lounged in it for 4 hours!). The decor of the room was older style but simple, fresh and very clean. The motelier and his wife were different and very friendly. We originally booked one night and enjoyed it so much we checked in again on the way home and were surprised to see a completely new bed cover which is reassuring. We are going to make it a regular stop for us. It snowed on our last day and was so nice to see the motelier out speaking with the guests and enjoying the snow. I think the best thing about this motel is the good old kiwi hospitality. It is not flash, not pretentious. It is relaxing and comfortable. Loved it.
Cons: The only thing I didn't like was leaving.
