Hilton Lake Taupo Celebrates 125 Years Of Hospitality

Terraces Hotel, 1889
Hilton Lake Taupo today announced the commemoration of the hotel's 125th anniversary of personalised service to visitors from around the world.

Taupo's historical Terraces Hotel, now Hilton Lake Taupo, dates back to 1889 when the original property was built as an upscale hotel. Known as "the only hotel with hot water on premises," the 20-bedroom hotel boasted two lounges and later a dining room able to seat 40 guests.

Commenting on the anniversary, Roger Brantsma, General Manager of Hilton Auckland and Hilton Lake Taupo, said: "This is a momentous occasion for Hilton Lake Taupo as it celebrates a historic past. We are thrilled to recognise an important landmark in Taupo and New Zealand history."

While the property has undergone many interior refurbishments, the original Victorian-styled exterior has remained out of respect to its rich and entrenched heritage.

The hotel now combines the Victorian grandeur with contemporary comfort, five-star facilities and impeccable Hilton service.
