  • We had a really lovely stay in Totara Lodge

    We had a really lovely stay in Totara Lodge. The place is cosy, nicely decorated, and had all the creature comforts we could want or need. I loved the organic and eco-friendly products as well! The gardens are beautiful, parking was easy, and it was easy to find as well.

    Very clean and tidy place in a nice location (we had a car, so it was only 3 mins drive from town center). Comfy beds and very quietly appointed in a nice area of Taupo.
