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

My husband and I stayed for two nights a week ago with our thirteen year old son during our two week holiday in New Zealand. We booked here based on previous reviews and we are so glad we did. We had a family mid level apartment. The location is one of the best anywhere in Lake Taupo being right on... 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

Great to have you back at Boulevard Waters & pleased you enjoyed your stay once again. More often than not we only become aware of problems with electrical items when it is bought to our attention. We do carry replacements of most items which I understand was the case with the DVD player. Thank you for taking the time to... 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.

We loved this place and will highly recommend it to everyone . Its only a small hotel but its right on the Lake with great views and sooooooooo quiet! Recommend the high rooms (only has a total of 10) as they have unrestricted views of the lake. We had room 5 which was on the 2nd floor and had everything... More

We stayed in one of the top floor units. The location of the property is great - right on the lakefront (with just a public walkway between - so ground floor units aren't private). Away from the road, so it was very quiet. Fantastic views of the lake and mountains. Sitting on the balcony sipping bubbly or sitting in bed... More
