We had the pleasure of enjoying a night at this beautiful Lodge. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like we were the only guests, handed a glass of champagne and then taken on a tour and to our room by the General Manager. The canapes and drinks were fabulous then on to a stunning five course dinner. The rooms are exquisite, the service is outstanding with delightful staff who are extremely professional but with a personality. The General Manager, Kerry is an absolutely asset to the Lodge and was so accommodating at assisting us get to the National Equestrian Centre and into Taupo, even offering to come back and pick us up ..... all after we had technically checked out. Breakfast was enjoyed in the 'queens' room and lunch outside by the fire. We didn't want to leave. Still dreaming of our wonderful experience. Thank you Kerry and your team, your super stars and showcase incredible New Zealand hospitality.
Perfect in almost every way
We went for a long-anticipated weekend and the room and lodge and grounds and staff were absolute perfection. Breakfast was wonderful, pre dinner drinks in front of the fire, lunch on the terrace; all gorgeous. But dinner...First night was nice but I honestly can't remember it - which is unlike the previous time we had dinner there, 20 years ago which I can recite, course by course because it was so fabulous. And the second night - luke-warm vegetarian; very pretty but bland, muted, and we gave up half way through. There is not much to be said for the concept of "Chef knows best" when this is the result. Would love to come back, but while this model of dining is in place, we won't be. Staff are AMAZING, though.
A benchmark for high quality in every aspects!
- Huka Lodge is hands down one of the best places we’ve been. It’s a benchmark for high quality accommodation in every aspects. - The property sits right by the Waikato River - every detail is beautiful and the very tasteful (dustless) decor just topped it off. - Service level is amazing (which is what you don’t always find in NZ). The staff remembered us by the names and went extra miles to accomodate us and our toddler. - The food was exceptional and is on par with some of the Michelin restaurants I’ve tried.
A birthday weekend to remember
From arriving to leaving we had a wonderful stay at Huka Lodge. The food,wine, service and surroundings were perfect. Most definitely will go back. Our lodge room by the river was spacious and comfortable with a relaxing feel and a great view. Lovely gardens for walks. We didn’t really need to leave the place apart from a pleasant walk to the Falls.
From the time we arrived till we left two days later we felt like friends. Passionate people run this lodge Food magnificent Wine superb I could write so much but really it is exceptional in all areas
