Rob was the perfect host of the flying trout boutique lodge. The accommodation was amazing, finished to the highest standard. The breakfast room and view was equally amazing and the breakfast was cooked perfectly. We could not have asked for anymore from an accommodation and host. We will not hesitate in recommending anyone to stay there and we will be definitely be staying there again. Tom & Tasha

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at "The Flying trout Boutique Lodge". If it wasn't for lock down 4 we would have stayed longer. We highly recommend staying at this luxurious lodge with stunning Lake vistas. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by our hosts Rob & Karen & the ambience of the lodge with it's wood fire & beautiful antiques. The entire experience of staying at the lodge is one of being enveloped in luxury. We stayed in the Tui Suite which is a magnificent suite complete with stunning views of the lake from both the suite bedroom & spa bath. The antique furnishings & attention to detail just adds to the charm of the experience. Rob & Karen are wonderful hosts & treat their guests to a stunning breakfast each morning. We are looking forward to returning to The Flying Trout Boutique Lodge Anna & Brian Te Muri Ridge Mahurangi West

best location in all of Taupo. We had an amazing view of the lake from our room. The room was so cozy and comfortable and the spa bathtub was a treat. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and Rob and Karen were the perfect hosts. I would definitely stay here here again and don't hesitate to highly recommend.

We loved our stay at The Flying Trout, it was a perfect place for a night away. The room was lovely, it was really warm and cosy and a nice place to just sit about and spend time in. The private spa on the deck of our room was such a nice feature, you can sit and have a soak while looking out over lake Taupo - perfect for a winter retreat. The lodge is in Acacia Bay which is a very nice part of Taupo, just a few minutes drive from the town centre. It has a great view of the lake and there are some nice little lake side and bush walks just minutes from the lodge. Rob and Karen the hosts are so nice and really go out of their way to make you feel welcome and really enjoy your stay. Breakfast was delicious with a very nice selection of local and NZ made products to choose from. We would definitely stay at The Flying Trout again, it’s a hidden gem!
