Luxury -- that is the word to describe "The Pillars Retreat." While traveling we chose to set aside a day from busy sightseeing to pamper ourselves and we are glad we did it. Hosts Gilly and Brian run a superb specialty lodging and make an effort to meet and greet their guests. The website says it all ... great gardens, terrific view of Lake Taupo, superbly appointed rooms.

a lovely home, well appointed and coordinated in the theme of Africa. Which may sound odd but it isn't. it was a very relaxing place. just perfect after a long day of exploring the area. nestled close to the river with walk trails close by. whether you're a family, with friends, or just out and about; this is an idea place.

This was one of the most memorable experience I've had in hospitality. We were so well looked after and everything was impeccable. I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a luxury stay away. The hosts Becky and Rob are a wonderful couple.

What an absolute pleasure to stay at Lake Taupo Lodge. This stylish boutique lodge has a fantastic retro appeal and lake views. We stayed in the Cherrywood suite which was clean, cozy and roomy. The attention to detail is a highlight. I wished we had stayed longer to enjoy the gardens and patios. Breakfast was homecooked and 5 star! Hosts Gary and Shirley were lovely and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Baycrest Lodge. Our upstairs room (#17) was quiet, roomy, well-appointed and had a lovely view of the lake from the balcony. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were nice. There was plenty of room for luggage and we didn't feel cramped., as is the case in many hotel rooms We appreciated the free Wi-Fi and that the hotel used environmentally-friendly products in the bathroom. The front desk staff person was very friendly and helpful. He gave us several recommendations and answered our questions about things in the area. The Lodge is located a few minutes drive from the main part of town (about 10-15 walk). We'd definitely recommend Baycrest Lodge and would stay there again if we get the chance to return to Taupo.
