The rooms were nice and the family that runs the hotel made the visit a great experience. The hotel is situated 5 min from the centre and we got a ride to town to have dinner. Very attentive with lots of tips on what to do and where to eat.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Wellington and it was very good. The lady at reception was very helpful and room was very nice and easy to wheel our heavy suitcases straight from the car. Wifi was good and location was only short distance drive to main town centre. Good value for money.

Everything about the "Cottage Mews" was delightful! Great accommodation, food and service. We will recommend highly to anyone who intends to stay at Taupo and would always stay there ourselves for any future visits.

My husband and I had a quick night stay at The Cottage Mews but were happy to have picked this as our overnight stop. Our room - The Nook - was very comfortable and well-equipped. The motel is a little bit beyond the main town, which was fine for us since we weren't spending much time in Taupo and only... More

Clean, quiet room ... with an in-room spa (and lavender bubble bath provided!), washer / drying rack (dryer was $2), and private courtyard. Hosts were very, very nice, and location is close to Taupo town. Very happy with our stay here!

This place is great! Yeah, the decor is slightly outdated and the spa bath doesn't quite fit in... but they make it work. We stayed in the number 9 unit and had an amazing view from upstairs. The accommodation is clean and tidy - and the housekeeping staff do a great job! The people were beyond friendly and very helpful,... More

Travelled in November to Taupo and booked Cottage Mews through Booking.com as offered and reviewed through tripadvisor. Chose to stay in the 'Nook' a compact unit which suited our needs. It has its own private courtyard. The Nook is ideal for short stay visitors. Julie our host was welcoming and made us feel at home. The motel is out of... More

Our room was small but we knew this and stayed for only two nights. Good sized shower in a nice bathroom. The bed and linen were very good. We had a small private patio and comfortable indoor chairs. The owners are a credit to the hospitality business!

We have stayed in a number of motels in New Zealand and whilst most owners are polite, the service can be a bit matter-of-fact. Not so at the Cottage Mews. From the moment we entered, Julie took really good care of us. The difference is that she is genuinely interested in people and their needs. I only had to tell... More
