David and Jackie review of Acacia Cliffs Lodge
The Lodge was beautifully located overlooking Lake Taupo. Richard and Linda were perfect hosts and were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about the area and what to do and see. We had a wonder stay and would highly recommend it to others.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The hosts are both very welcoming and hospitable, nothing seemed too much for Lynda. She is a brilliant host & always smiling ! I loved their idea of letting guests use their laundry facilities ie washer & drier ! An excellent thought to detail I think as most guests are travelling for 3-4 wks . Lovely evening canapés with wine where one meets the other guests and can discuss their travel etc . We met some very interesting people. Excellent views of the lake Taupo .

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
The wow factor of this property is undeniable and the common spaces are well designed and exquisitely appointed. Our room, however, as spectacular as it was because of the view, was lacking in practicality. There was a huge double sink in the bathroom which had barely any counter space to place hairdryers, shaving necessities or toiletry bags. The private balcony chairs were metal and not very comfortable. There was a small side table on which to set a laptop but just barely and there were no units with drawers. The bedside tables were metal and tiny, again very little space on which to put things. If you are staying a while, you basically have to live in your suitcase.

Linda and Rick are excellent hosts! The lodge has breathtaking views and is most enjoyable to stay out. Rick is the chef and prepares wonderful breakfasts. Couldn't be happier! There are only 4 rooms at the lodge. We met the other guests and that added to our stay.
