Braxmere was a quiet, peaceful and soul restoring place. If you are allergic to hebes, this place could be problematic to your health, but otherwise it is wonderful.

This is one of the most delightful places to stay, lovely modern units, spotlessly clean, with all one needs in the unit itself. Along from the accomodation is a first class restaurant ( though we didn't eat there on this occasion we have before, great food, although perhaps more vegetarian options would be good ) charming staff and what a beautiful view. Next time we come to this area winter or summer we shall stay longer and enjoy a relaxing few days.

Beautiful views right on the lakeside. The staff were exceptional and restaurant's food was great. The room was very clean with great quality accessories, generous tea and coffee. For the price too i would highly recommend this as a stay!!

Nice fishing lodge with great views of the lake. Administration could be improved. They didn't have our booking details for beds requested in accommodation. They also charge your credit catd before you arrive, even though I had only booked with wotif.

Lovely complex right on lakefront

Pros: Awesome setting:) Very relaxing as in a little world of it's own + off the main highway. If you weren't looking for it, you would drive right past .
Cons: A spa pool on site would be a nice addition.
Location: Not a lot of activities nearby. Mainly fishing I guess or water activities.
Very enjoyable two night stay @ Braxmere. Beautiful view looking out of the window over the green lawn & out towards Lake Taupo. Lakeland House Restaurant staff were very friendly and the meals very generous. We would definitely like to stay there again.
