Te Moenga Lodge - Taupo - Bedroom
1
9.8 Excellent (181 reviews)
₹ 8,886+
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved Cheryl and Phil's hospitality. They booked us a shuttle to do the Tongariro Crossing, made us breakfast for both mornings we were there, chatted with us for a while, gave us recommendations for dinner and let us spend time with their dog, Neo (who was gorgeous)! The pool and hot tub were very nice and helped immensely after a 19.4km trek. The views are also amazing and it's a lovely place to sit back and relax. Couldn't have asked for better.
Cons: Not a big deal but the kitchenette area was quite small and a bigger area would have worked better for us personally. Don't let this put you off though - it's mostly just because we had a lot of food from road-tripping around for two weeks already. All the other facilities were great!

Pros: Loved Cheryl and Phil's hospitality. They booked us a shuttle to do the Tongariro Crossing, made us breakfast for both mornings we were there, chatted with us for a while, gave us recommendations for dinner and let us spend time with their dog, Neo (who was gorgeous)! The pool and hot tub were very nice and helped immensely after a 19.4km trek. The views are also amazing and it's a lovely place to sit back and relax. Couldn't have asked for better.
Cons: Not a big deal but the kitchenette area was quite small and a bigger area would have worked better for us personally. Don't let this put you off though - it's mostly just because we had a lot of food from road-tripping around for two weeks already. All the other facilities were great!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved it! Superb spot in Taupo, super easy walk to the shops & main street. Beds were incredibly comfortable, as were the couches & lounge chairs. All kitchen & lounge areas were great and easy to navigate with a 'instructions book' if required from eMotel. The way we were able to access our apartment was easy, and parking was readily available. Loved having tea, coffee and little milk pods at hand. Bathroom was quite clean, felt modern.
Cons: The only thing we noticed was a small line of ants in the bathroom by the cupboard, but caused no issue in any way. I suspect they were on the hunt for water given it had been quite dry!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We arrived late afternoon after a 5 hour drive from Wellington. The first impression was, WOW, how good is this place. The reception was warm and welcoming and gave the impression nothing was too much trouble. A well set out suite that included everything, and I mean everything including washing up liquid. I'm not sure what it would take to make this place better, we loved the place. 10 out of 10. We are going back next year. Oh, and Taupo's not too bad a place either.
Cons: I was really upset that the break was so short.

Pros: Our two-bedroom cottage at Accent on Taupo was clean, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. The location was ideal- with green-lawned garden behind cottage, shady courtyard in front and short walk across road to lake front and pathways around beautiful Lake Taupo. Loved the fully-laden sweet plum tree, where we were invited to 'pick as many as you like' and the helpful tips about the local area from Julian, our host.
