Hilltop Cottage

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Boundary Rd, Taupo, Waikato 3330, New Zealand

The Space

Great Views over Lake Taupo and towards the three mountains. The main picture has the mountains behind the fog! They were taken on a frosty, foggy morning.

House is Number five, (second driveway on right) turn sharp left up hill and there is plenty of turning space and a carport for your use.

The house is very warm in winter and cool in summer so you will be comfortable all year around. There are three bedrooms, one with single beds and two with queen beds. Sky TV and Broadband Internet is also available.

Boasting great view, we are located only 4 km to town. Whether you are wanting a relaxing getaway or something a little more upbeat, Taupo has it all.

Taupo has many varied and high standard eating places, be it top cuisine, Thai, Indian, etc, etc. You will find an eating place to your individual taste.

Enjoy a nice stroll along the lake and the nearby Waipahihi Reserve or try out some of the popular water sports. Kayaking and jet boating are amongst the most popular on the lake along with trout fishing.

Would love to have you come stay!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay at Hilltop Cottage was wonderful. It is clear from the start that Jill has so much fun being a host. And her wonderful breakfasts reflect that. The panoramic views from her deck must be among the best in town.

  • Lovely Stay - Jill gets the right balance and nothing was a bother.

  • Jill was a lovely host and we really enjoyed it at her place.

  • Even though we only stayed with Jill for one night, she made us feel very at home and comfortable. The bedroom can't be faulted and the whole experience was really pleasant.

    I'd definitely recommend people stay with Jill if they're heading to Taupo and want a friendly face to host them!

  • Beautiful place and lovely host. The only problem we were in Taupo for 1 day only should have stayed for longer :).

    Would love to come back and stay with Gill again.

  • Staying with Jill was a really lovely experience. She is a gracious lady, welcoming charming and helpful. Breakfast was a real treat. Fabulous views across the lake from her deck. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jill to anyone. Thank you so much. Chris & Elaine.

  • Jill made us very welcome in her lovely home. We were even able to enjoy an evening meal on Jill's superb deck which affords excellent views over Lake Taupo. Jill serves an adequate breakfast of cereals, fruit, toast and preserves.

  • Our 2 night stay at Jill's Hilltop "Cottage" was delightful. Far from a cottage, it is a lovely, up-scale home. Jill is a fastidious housekeeper and her home is immaculate and very well organized. She sets an elegant table for breakfast and maintains just the right balance between being a perfect hostess and respecting guests' privacy.

  • My fiancé and I stayed at Jill's place from 18-23 Dec 2013. The house is located on a small hill overlooking Lake Taupo. Apart from the magnificent views that one gets from the living and dining room, the house itself is also very well furnished, clean and neat. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is huge and clean. Breakfast provided was a generous serving of coffee, juice, cereal and toast. You can also help yourself to a hearty serving of fruits. Most importantly, Jill was very kind to us and her warm hospitality will remain as one of our fondest memories of New Zealand. We will definitely visit and stay with Jill again if we ever get to return to Taupo in the future.

    Response from Jill:

    Dear Elaine and Shanfu, Thank you so much for your contribution to my home. You are very generous people and I really enjoyed your company. Sorry to be late with my thanks to you both, but I have had a very busy time since you left me. Lots of people to stay with me. I have also been to Auckland for a week. Hope you are keeping well? Regards Jill

  • It was a pleasure to meet Jill and spend a few terrific days exploring Taupo and Rotorua. The view from Jill's home is terrific with an expansive view of Lake Taupo and the mountains. Jill made us feel very much at home, giving us plenty of privacy and at the same time enjoying the pleasure of her company. We were certainly well fed each morning! We would stay with Jill again in a heartbeat.

I love to have company. My house is very comfortable with great views over the lake towards mountains. I am interested in charity work, Taoist Tai Chi, playing Mahjong, reading, doing crosswords, mind games and jigsaw puzzles.
