Thank you so much for having us! The two of you are simply amazing hosts and this place is simply beautiful. This place felt more like a home and a hotel. Rob & Karen were the best part of our trip here. The room was absolutely stunning! I loved the chocolates and free chocolate milk.

A true luxury lodge where you feel cossetted and indulged. Great views, level of comfort and the breakfast - WOW!

The main question to answer when reviewing any hotel is “would I stay there again?” - in the case of The Flying Trout Lodge - my answer is ABSOLUTELY! We enjoyed genuinely warm hospitality from our lovely hosts, and loved the luxurious glamour evident in every thoughtful detail of this beautiful property - from the furnishings, cutlery, extremely comfortable bedding (and even our own private spa pool in the Kiwi Suite) with breath taking views, absolute peace and quiet, and an adorable Bessie to cuddle. Stunning roses, tennis court, privacy and far more “soul” than the places we usually stay in Taupo! I’d highly recommend this wonderful accommodation and experience - the only thing we will do differently next visit is to stay longer!

Of the many places that label themselves as luxurious places to stay, this truly deserves the title. Every nook and cranny is tastefully decorated, the room we stayed in was exquisite. There was nothing in there that could have been improved. Perfecto! The hosts were lovely, warm, welcoming people and made us feel at home. You would be thoroughly blessed to stay here.

Stunning! Everything!

Nic & Sarah, Te Puke

We had an amazing weekend. Such an amazing place to stay it made our weekend in Taupo. Karen & Robert are fantastic hosts. Thank you.

Mark & Serenna, Havelock North

The environment delights the senses, tranquil, cosy and thoroughly enjoyable. Bessie's Mum and Robert go above and beyond - their attention to detail, warm conversations, sweet surprises made our stay superb - thank you.
