Highly Recommended! Beautiful & Relaxing
Absolutely wonderful. Brian and Gilly are the most welcoming hosts and their property is perfection. My husband and I just returned from an adventurous trip to New Zealand for our honeymoon. We stayed at The Pillars for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The property is a little oasis about a 7 minute drive from downtown Taupo. It was a beautiful place to return to after our adrenaline-filled days (we went jet-boating at Huka Falls one day, and drove to the Waitomo Caves the 2nd day). Our room was really spacious and had a lovely view (the property is surrounded by gardens). Breakfasts were especially yummy--Gilly offered us homemade muffins, jams, muesli, yogurt, etc. If you are going to be visiting Taupo or the surrounding areas, this is an excellent place to stay! HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

In fact the place is very nice , the house is very clean , and the owners are very friendly . But for me it is not a hotel it is a nice bed and breakfeast . Before travelling i was surching a hotel and internet gave me this address as an hotel but it is not what i think being an hotel . On the upper level of this house there is the rooms , and our room was very small and we could not open all our luggages . The owner told us that the others rooms are bigger but they were already taken . From our room we could ear our neighboors speaking and watching tv accross the wall . For breakfeast every body is around the table and this is the reason why it is a bed and breakfeast and not a hotel . We booked for 2 nights and we only stayed 1 night and moved in a real hotel in TAUPO . When i was younger i slept in bed and breakfeast and for sure this one is one of the best i occupied . No air conditionning and Windows open only a little bit . Not enough fresh air coming in the room .
