"My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's throughout the US, Europe, and New Zealand and West Wellow Lodge is by far our favorite. The setting is ideal, offering a stunning lake view, gorgeous gardens, and ready access to Taupo's fine restaurants and wide range of "clean, green" activities. The lodge itself is beautiful inside and out, combining elegance, comfort, and warmth."

"We had the most incredible stay at the West Wellow Lodge. The hosts have created an elegant, sophisticated and gracious B&B. The English gardens are captivating, the view of Lake Taupo in the distance just beautiful, and the hospitality extraordinary. No detail has been overlooked. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. It was our first stop in New Zealand and without comparison."
