We stayed for two nights and absolutely loved the location of this motel! We stayed on the top floor, overlooking Lake Taupo and it was stunning, we enjoyed the most amazing sun sets from our own balcony! The room itself was spacious and spotless and we had a private spa bath in the bedroom. The motel is a short drive... More

We have stayed at Boulevard Waters many times. Absolutely the best motel in Taupo. Lake front, quiet, easy bike ride from the city centre. Clean and friendly. Great hot water pool outside and spa pool in every room, magic view from every unit.

My husband and I booked in for a couple of nights getaway. I originally booked the wrong 2 nights but the very friendly and helpful owner quickly changed it for me. We had booked a studio mid level but were upgraded to the top floor. It was wonderful. We sat on the spacious balcony overlooking the lake with the beautiful... More

This was the first time we booked with Boulevard Waters and the first think that makes you fall in love with this place is the amazing views of the lake and the snow filled mounts. The spa in the room was a great source of relaxation on a cold Taupo night :) The one thing that might need a little... More

We booked ahead so had read a bit about this motel which had been recommended by friends. Firstly, the owners are very friendly and helpful as are the cleaning staff. The rooms are modern and nicely finished with some lovely paintings. Overlooking ( 50 metres away) the lake with a view right down to the snow capped volcanoes of Tongariro... More

Rocked up on the day and w's lucky enough to get a room, I would suggest booking ahead to avoid disappointment. All rooms overlooked lake but we got top floor #10. Bathroom floors heated always a plus. The spa bath was what sold us on the room, you can also see the lake from the spa across your room, bedding... More

Right on the edge of the lake, this motel has a great location. My husband dipped into the hotel's 40 degree hot pool, then right into the lake to cool off! Really cool. The room is long and narrow but has a clever design. The bedroom with 3 single beds is at the back, and small, but the main room... More

Had a lovely stay AGAIN, hotel situated far enough away from town so you don't have the noise but close enough to walk alongside the lake. They could improve the DVD players as both times we have visited they never work. Spa in perfect spot in room. Perfect little kitchen to do all your cooking just don't turn stove tops... More

Sensational location, great rooms and lovely hosts. We were able to sit outside our ground floor suite and watch our children play on the edge of the lake, just meters away. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be regular visitors.
