This is a very cute property with plenty of free parking and is located right next to Lake Taupo (a beautiful lake). The city centre is a short 5 minute drive away. There is a very cheap washing and drying machine available for customers, with free soap powder and also very handy washing baskets to collect the washing. The room... More

Absolutely beautiful place to stay! Gorgeous personal touches such as the Lavender oil and the cute milk bottles! Would have been even better if it was on the waterfront but thats just me being picky - definately would recommend :)

We arrived late on a cold winter's day and were delighted to find that the heater had been turned on in the room. A very welcoming and much appreciated thoughtfulness. The room and ensuite were spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. The only criticism was the newspaper was not delivered, as they had agreed to do as a special request.

Very good service. Extremely helpful. We needed a place to eat and was given advice on family restaurants. Courteous reception. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family for a good place to stay. I will be back in the near future.

The first night of a 6wk roadie and the bar was set pretty high by this place. We had a lovely host who really couldn't do enough for us. We stayed in two level place with a bedroom and spa upstairs, kitchenette and living space with two single beds downstairs. Comfortable, clean, but a little dated. My only niggle was... More

I stayed here over Easter earlier this year and it was fantastic. The cottage was spacious and clean, the staff were helpful and friendly and is a beautiful walk away from town. The cottages are reasonably priced and have everything you need inside.

This was one of our favorite places to stay while we were in NZ for a month. Very spacious & clean. Just be careful with the lavender gel in the bath (use very little). The staff / owners were so friendly & eager to assist. A really get stay.

The Motel is well placed and presented and really close to the city centre. the rooms are immaculate and the kitchen facilities really welcome. we would have loved to stay longer but the one night was memorable. Kudos to the owners who add character to the place.

We booked into Cottage Mews for a night. The units are all very clean and tidy. The facilities are great. It is a safe and comfortable place to stay. The units are priced very reasonably and the owners are very welcoming to guests. Will definately stay at Cottage Mews again when visiting Taupo. We have found a great place.
