We chose to stay at the Cottage Mews on our trip to NZ in celebration of our Golden Wedding Anniversary because its quaint architecture reminded us of our younger years in Yorkshire England. Julie, our hostess, was warm and welcoming and gave us many tips on where to go and what to see in the local area. Our room was... More

Cottage Mews is a "superior" motel and we paid a premium for a lake-end one-bedroom unit. The welcome and service was excellent. The fittings and furniture were above average - even though we thought it odd to have a spa bath right in the bedroom! We probably shouldn't have paid for a premium room because, even by expensive Taupo standards,... More

We recently stayed here while passing through on business. The room was very clean and well presented, hosts Terry and Julie were really nice and friendly and made us feel very welcome. We have now stayed twice. The rooms were awesome, great spa baths and the view from the room with the upstairs was really lovely looking out at the... More

We stayed at Cottage Mews in July. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable, warm and reasonably priced. I would like to thank Julie for being so helpful and friendly. She gave us lots of local tips and was more than happy to help with any requests we had. We had a fantastic afternoon with the push bikes they had for... More

We were warmly welcomed on a cold wintry day and were given great recommendations for dinner as well as for activities around the area with maps and pamphlets all provided with a smile.The unit had a nice kitchenette and a lovely spa bath in the upper floor.The laundry room near the reception area was also well stocked and very neat.

Lovely and helpful welcome by Julie, great little unit...(loved the spa bath!). Very close to lakeshore and a gentle 30-min walk in to town. Good value. Plenty of parking. Kayaks available to rent. Breakfasts and snacks available on request.

Requiring accommodation for a single night en route to Auckland, we chose to stay at the Cottage Mews, an establishment we have frequented before. This time, as we were planning an early start, we looked for a small room that was reasonably priced. We were offered "the Nook", a delightful little room with a queen bed, kitchenette with microwave and... More

Freezing cold outside, snow on the central plateau, spectacular snow capped mountain views across the lake, and in the unit was so warm and cosy. Heaters on, extra fleecy blanket on the bed - comfortable bed, relaxing lavender bubbles provided for the spa bath, two TV's, so Hubby could watch the world cup from the spa and I watched a... More
