Stayed here for one night. Fantastic view, outstanding value and unit was effortlessly clean and well appointed. Owners assisted us in finding accommodation elsewhere in town as they were booked out for a busy weekend - we appreciated this immensely and were treated to another fantastic motel 5 mins away. Hot pool was great. Sunset from your balcony will blow... More

Have stayed here on previous visits to Taupo and was not disappointed this time. Fantastic rooms - large, clean, comfortable. Great views across the lake (the sunset is especially spectacular) which can be enjoyed whilst soaking in the huge spa bath. Friendly hosts. Not the cheapest of motels but worth every penny. Highly recommended

We could not believe how lucky we were - a very friendly welcome and then the amazing room. The motel is literally at the edge of the lake with only a walkway between the motel and the beach. Peaceful and quiet with wonderful views from a spacious balcony ( we were on the 2nd floor). The room was spotless and... More

So glad we found Boulevard Waters - we had driven to Taupo and had a couple of places in mind. The first wasn't quite what we were looking for and Boulevard Waters was just down the street so we had a look and were very impressed. It is right on the lakefront and each room has a balcony looking across... More

We had such a lovely time staying here for Christmas! It was perfect being right by the lake.. Although it's not the perfect spot for swimming right out front if you walk a few minutes there are some great spots! The room was clean and fresh! We had a fantastic time and have already booked for next Christmas!

Agree - what a great place to spend Christmas & trust the weather will be just as kind for Xmas 2015. Should also point out that the swimming beach nearby is referred to as "Hot Water Beach" - if you dig into the sand your feet will feel the warm water beneath. Look forward to seeing you later in the... More

We are unfortunately only here for one night and if it was available tomorrow we would stay another night. What a gorgeous place with a stunning view. Sunset is amazing from the balcony. Best place we have stayed at in Taupo. Clean and tidy rooms, I have nothing bad to say at all, we are very impressed !

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
