We booked in for a stay over but in my opinion I could have stayed a few nights more. The staff were pretty friendly and the rooms spacious and beautiful with a big comfortable king bed. Nice fold out couch for the children too. We will come again

We've stayed at The Cove in the past and have enjoyed our stay. The spa pool on the balcony is a luxurious touch and makes the stay really special. This time, as I was proposing to my now fianceé, I booked the penthouse apartment. It was amazing. The view of lake taupo from the spa pool, sipping on bubbly, lovely... More

Stayed here recently with two friends for a girls weekend. It was a nice place to stay. They had heat pump and electric blankets on when we arrived. And were very friendly when they saw us around. Always asked what our plans were and gave suggestions and driving directions. Loved the super fast wifi! Only downfall i can think of... More

Absolutely loved our stay, the owners were friendly & helpful on arrival and our room was gorgeous. They had ensured the room would be warm for us, and instantly we felt relaxed. Views from our spa were awesome & rooms were private. Had breakfast at café downstairs which was very tasty & well priced. Would highly recommend.

We had other accommodation booked which upon our arrival was not up to scratch which left us searching for last minute accommodation for 3 nights - we showed up at The Cove just before 5pm and they were ever so helpful in booking us in and getting us settled. The room was AMAZING and made for a lovely 3 nights,... More

Not a big place so probably need to book. It's right on the lake front so great place to take visitors. Be wonderful in summer. Everyone enjoyed the food. I had the rocket salad and two people shared a platter. They couldn't eat it all. Warning parking is an issue but can always bike.

Nice place to stay on the lake. Studio room was a good size & very clean. The friendly staff had our heater on for us when we arrived. Inside The Cove is beautifully decorated, as are the rooms. The bathroom was dated, but clean. Would stay here again.

What a Fantastic place! All our many needs catered for without question (2nd TV in bedroom, place to smoke out of rain, and quiet) which is big for us. We stayed in 1 Bedroom suite with superking bed with spa!! Spa pool, not hot tub was brilliant, always ready to get into, a big plus for us. Room was clean,... More
