Tony and Tania are wunderful persons. They gave us a warm welcome. Tonys lodge is not the Hilton but an absolute cosy place...feels like home. Highly recommended to travelers who are looking for real Kiwi hospitality. Many thanks for the great time we had with you !!!!

Tony and Tania made us all very welcome. As soon as we arrived we were chatting and finding out about the area. Nothing was too much trouble and our grand children were free to enjoy themselves. We made good use of the BBQ for cooking our evening meal. The rooms were comfortable and we enjoyed breakfast out on the newly built decking. Highly recommended as a good base for exploring.

Tony's Lodge is well situated to enjoy the Lake Taupo area and the mountains to the south. There were other guests staying from Finland and Croatia and the common room made socializing fun, though optional. We arrived mid afternoon and Tony gave us a great suggestion for a 2 hour hike in the mountains. Tony's Lodge offers the basics; the space was tight but clean. We were three middle aged women who stayed in the bunk room. Two of the beds were okay but the bunk bed is more suited to children than adults. Toilets, showers and towels are off a common hallway and were kept clean. Tony and Tania were both accommodating of requests.
