Location is wonderful - positioned right on the lake-front with steaming sand just beyond the units. The lake-front walkway passes in front - great for walkers and joggers.There is a cafe serving coffee, breakfast and lunch next door, so no need to go to town. We love the hot pool fed by hot thermal water- wonderful in winter, and you... More

We spent one night here in one of the family rooms. The room was very quiet as it is tucked away off the road behind another motel. The room was clean and comfortable. The second bedroom small but adequate. The spa tube right next to the bed was a bit odd. The view of the lake from the private deck... More

Good sized unit. Lake views with easy walking paths and safe for children. Nice heated (hot) pool. Not close to CBD but knew this before we booked. Tidy and well kept furnishings. Quiet and easy parking. Would stay again.

Great location, friendly staff, amazing views! Outstanding service and the staff are always helpful, friendly & full of local knowledge. Spacious rooms (love the in-room spa), it's the little things that count & this place has it all! Taupo provides outstanding natural scenery & this place has it at the back door! Can't wait to go back.

Stayed one night here on our NZ trip, but would have been happy to stay more. The hotel is right on the lake front, and we had a gorgeous room at the top looking out over the water. The room had a kitchenette, very comfortable bed, and a spa bath. The owner was very friendly and helpful, recommending a good... More

Stayed 3 nights here, for some reason the room just lacks something, didn't help that the man who booked us in was not that friendly. .Room was quite dark. Had to chase up fresh soap and shower towels had seen better days, although spa ones were very good. Overall just felt it lacked a few little touches - like its... More

This is a great hotel with large bedrooms, a huge spa and perfect views over the lake. I really enjoyed this place, a real highlight and great value. The property is shielded from road noise by the hotels either side of it as it is actually located at the front down by the lake. In the morning the steam from... More

We had booked this motel from an entry in an aged travel guide. This is far from aged. The rooms are very modern, everything is spotless. The large spa bath was a surprise. The views from the balcony were stunning. Would recommend staying here.

Boulevard Waters has been our home away from home during Ironman week for the past 5 years and never disappoints. The top floor apartments have uninterrupted views out over the lake and the thermal pool is a gem on colder days and to soothe tired muscles post-race. The rooms have recently been refreshed with new carpet and floor coverings, bedding... More

My husband and I were visiting New Zealand in February 2015 and had a wonderful time at Boulevard Waters.
