The unit was clean and we were warmly welcomed.Lovely view of the lake from our unit and we were able to nice and warm on a cold winter's night. Enjoyed the spa bath. An early morning walk on lake edge was great. Highly recommend.

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

we booked this motel by mistake so were pleasantly surprised to find we had been upgraded to a spa unit with a lovely view of the lake. Everything was spotless, a delightful cleaning lady added to the great service we received. We can definitely recommend Cottage Mews.

We stayed in the "Nook" room which is very small but romantic for a couple. Clean, modern with all the amenities required for a short visit, the owners are very friendly and welcoming. In the summer this would be a great place to stay with a short alley way to the lakeside and kayaks provided, the one thing it is... More

stayed recently with my two young children, previous stay here was about 16 years ago. Lovely welcome on arrival, very welcoming and room was extremely clean and tidy. Amenities within the room very good also. No hesitation in staying again and recommending.

My fiancée and I stayed here on our way down south. When we arrived, our room was very clean and well stocked. We have stayed in many hotels/motels/B&Bs around the world and this was in my top 5. The staff were lovely and so helpful! I loved the bubble bath too! Thank you for a great stay Julie :)

My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Cottage Mews. The motel is a short drive into town and is located right on the lakeside. Julie gave us some cheese scones that she had freshly baked which was a nice touch. Would recommend staying here.

We loved this place. Our unit had the bedroom/bathroom/whirlpool on the first floor and a living area, dining table, small kitchen, and balcony on the second floor. Views of the lake were very nice and the walk to the lake just a very short stroll away. Everything about the unit was clean, comfortable, and welcoming. The best part about Cottage... More

The bonus two bathrooms. Lovely little courtyard. Julie was very friendly and accommodating. We were running late but... More
