Spacious rooms, well equipped kitchen, nice big bathroom, quiet at night. Good choice for a fishing trip - the tackle shop is well stocked and can provide friendly/helpful advice.
Newspaper delivered to your door every morning at 4am. Only negative is that you have to make sure your car is locked at night.

Absolutely perfect. Karen was extremely helpful with advice on the nearby river trail, as well as making arrangements for Tongariro Crossing transportation. We loved the variety of plants in the beautiful grounds, which we could appreciate from the front porch. The interior was extremely spacious, with a living room, kitchen, comfortable bedroom looking out on the shrubbery, and large bathroom. The adjoining cafe was friendly and perfect for breakfast. While we weren't fishing, we enjoyed the fisherman’s lodge feeling and friendliness of the guests and host. We wished we could have stayed longer.

we made our way to this quiet spot for an evening rest. wish we would have made it a little earlier in the day as it looked like a great area to unwind and just enjoy the outdoors . Maybe next time if we get back. Cottage was spacious, loved the heated towel rack in the bathroom . Bed was comfy and enough space for all of us. Reception lady was very helpful in the morning at checkout when we needed a phone . Thank You!!

Creel Lodge was comfortable, clean and well laid out. it's perfect for an ovenight stay after a lot of driving or to stay for two weeks while you enjoy all Lake Taupo has to offer. It really is tremendous value for money and it's on my list for another visit.

Room tip: They are all good from what we could see.

Modern, very clean cabins, beautiful peacefull gardens, good location. This was are number 1 accommodation for my wife and I during a 10-day trip to NZ. This isn't just a destination for trout anglers; it is fantastic for other travellers too.
