I enjoyed my stay at Haka Lodge. It was clean and booking in was easy. It was also quiet which is probably unusual at the height of the summer season so nice and quiet. Easy to follow instructions becuase I arrived after the office closed. Easy check out and friendly staff. I will book again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Haka Lodge for a weekend and were really happy with our choice. Great common areas - very cozy lounge and large kitchen with a bbq option and an amazing view over the lake. Everything was really clean and staff helpful. Even though the rooms are small, they are perfect to have a good sleep. And not to forget - great location, just 10 mins from the center and plenty of space to park.

Haka lodge has a well equipped kitchen, a nice garden area and nice view of lake Taupō. Staff are also helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, the hot tub wasn’t running which could be because of covid. Our mattresses were a bit hard on the single beds, I would recommend bringing an extra blanket for that or asking staff for one. More storage in the rooms would be better. Overall, it was a good price and provides everything needed for a comfortable stay.

While we only stayed one night here, it was such a nice spot. Close to town only needing a short walk. Very clean facilities and towels provided. Comfortable, warm rooms - would definitely stay again :)
