We found Julie to be incredibly helpful, lovely location, got to sail, paddle board and kayak and enjoy the outside world. Totally recommend the place. One minute walk from the lake and a five minute drive from taupo

Stayed for just one night but it was amazing - Julie and her husband were so helpful and made me feel right at home. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for home comforts when they're far away from their own home!!

We visited cottage mews on the first night of our NZ road trip. Highly recommend. Excellent value for money. Very close to the water for a walk and paddle. Devonshire tea was very tasty and very big (one is enough to share!). Staff incredibly friendly. Unit was cosy and had a lovely spa bath. My parents also returned two weeks... More

We only stayed 2 nights but were lucky enough to have Villa 10, which from the upstairs lounge has lovely lake and mountain views. These units don't disappoint as per the previous reviews, it is a little out of town which is what we wanted. We picked up some stores to cook at home as has splurged elsewhere on our... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the nook which is actually really spacious and could have stayed for a lot longer. The hosts went out of their way to help and dropped us in to the town at short notice. The room was spotless and really tastefully decorated. Gorgeous little spot, we would recommend to anyone! We walked back from... More

Taupo is our a night stop after Wellington before we take our flight home in Auckland. We love the location is exactly beside the lake, just a short walk via back entrance and it give you a feel of staying in private beach. We reach there in the late evening, straight to the lake and watching sunset with ducks and... More

Quite an old hotel but owners extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in big room which they upgraded us to for free as last room went before i rang back to confirm. Everything in room was clean and tidy. Walk to lake...but probably a bike ride or car to 'town' Would stay there again

Just had one night in Taupo, but greatly enjoyed staying at the Cottage Mews. Excellent facilities, well priced, and close to the lake for an early morning walk or sunset glass of wine. The spa bath with lavender bubble bath was a lovely touch, and the private garden courtyard was perfect for a morning cup of tea.

Right by the lake, this motel is out of town but still a lovely location. Julie was most helpful and welcoming and gave us lots of information. The apartment (Room 10) was quirky and a bit "tired" but spotlessly clean and comfortable, with a great view over the lake. Excellent value with good attention to detail; highly recommended.
