What more could we want! Clean, spacious room and bathroom, comfy bed, nice restaurant within walking distance, peaceful area away from bustle of the town, great breakfast. Made perfect by friendly and helpful hosts Jane and John.

Wanted to say what a find this was on our 3 week NZ vacation. We felt blessed to have been able to stay here out of the hustle and bustle of the main hub in Taupo. We were here New Years and the area was crazy busy. We had not planned ahead and booked a place, and once we saw...

Jane and John not only collected us from the airport after 8pm, but also took us back the next day to collect the rental car! This bed and breakfast is in Acacia Bay, not in Taupo's main area, but there's a lovely restaurant just down the road a little within walking distance. Cafe L'Arte (needs a car but not far)...

We've stayed only one night at The Loft but it was a lovely experience. The owner, Jane, is a nice and smiling lady who welcomed us at night. The room was big and very cozy, with a comfy bed, lots of pillows, TV, heater, good bathroom with good shower. Also, the breakfast was great, tasty, in a common table where...

we were looking for somewhere between Hastings and home, so found The Loft. I had visited Acacia Bay many years ago. Jane and John were charming hosts. The room we had was the largest of the three available and it was charming. Jane recommended The Bay restaurant down the hill, which was a real find for a very good dinner....

We had a totally lovely experience here and have nothing but good comments to say. Jane and John are very friendly and helpful hosts but not intrusive. We stayed in the lovely Shakespeare suite for 2 nights and really appreciated the extra space. The other 2 rooms are also really nice and the pictures provided are accurate. They are all...

We stayed for one night and found our hosts to be very welcoming and the accommodation and location to be very good. It is out of town, but this will not be a problem for the vast majority of visitors, who will be travelling by car. The comments of Janine seem to us to be utter nonsense - clearly some...

Jane and John are most engaging hosts and made us very welcome at the Loft. Acaia Bay is a lovely location and very close to Taupo with all its amenities. Jane, despite her broken arm!, served us up some wholesome breakfasts and we were invited to join the family one evening for drinks and nibbles which was very hospitable and...

We stayed at the loft as a wedding overflow and want to say how wonderful John and Jane are. Nothing was a problem, very welcoming, even their wee dog is stranger friendly you just want to cuddle it. The hosts went out of their way to ensure our stay was fantastic. Jane even made our wedding cake and it really...

My husband and I stayed at The Loft for 4 nights and found Jane and John to be very welcoming into their home. We had never experienced a "bed and breckfast" before and would definately recommend "The Loft " to anyone. The room with ensuite that we stayed in was very clean and homely. Jane and John were very friendly...

“we had the largest of the three rooms, it had a queen bed and a large sofa at one end of the room where we were able to sit and read quietly after a long drive, without feeling that we needed to go downstairs. Tea making facilities if we wanted them were on the landing outside our room, complete with home baking available. A lovely stay.”
