Child Policy: 

Lake Taupo Lodge is designed to be an executive retreat for adults, but we recognise it is also an ideal spot for families, with its range of leisure and fishing activities. Particularly during the busiest season from 24 December to 15 March, we prefer not to accept children under five, at times and under certain circumstances we are able to accept them so do talk to us about it – we may be able to make it happen. 

We can offer separate dining for a family, ensuring peace and quiet for other adult guests. The pre-dinner drinks area is for adults only, but we can provide unsupervised children's entertainment during this time in the library if required. 

On this basis, children will be accepted with adults at the following rates: 

An infant (under Five years old) in its parents' room - Free of Charge.

Five to Ten years (incl) in their parents room - $150.00 plus GST per child, per night.

Ten years and over, in their parents room - $250.00 plus GST per child, per night. 

Children in their own room, of any age, will be charged the appropriate adult tariff (share twin or single). 

Christmas/New Years Eve policy:

On the night of 25th December and New Year's Eve there is a surcharge of NZ$150.00 + tax per person to cover pre-dinner champagne, entertainment and penal rates.

We also have a two night minimum stay for the period of the 20th of December through to the 31st March annually. 

Please note our Cancellation Policy:

50% charged if cancellation is within 30 days of arrival.

100% charged if cancellation is within 7 days of arrival.

100% charge will occur if guests are a "No-Show".

However, if we are able to fill the room/s for any of the nights previously booked, we will only debit the guest for the balance of accommodation we were unable to fill. If all nights previously booked are re-let, no charges will be made.

Travel Insurance suggestions:

We strongly recommend that you take adequate travel insurance – with a full comprehensive insurance policy covering medical, lost or stolen personal effects, baggage, air flight and hotel cancellation fees.
