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

We stayed at the Cottage Mews for 6 nights in Oct 2014. We stayed in the Lake - end apartment which we had been warned by the owner only had a tiny lake view. It was enough for us as we only had to walk 20 metres and we were on the shore of Lake Taupo. Owner, Julie, was lovely... More

Warm welcome from owner. A well equipped motel with plenty of space for four of us. Comfortable and warm. Enjoyed talking about Southland with the hostess! Generous supply of tea and coffee etc. I definitely recommend Cottage Mews.

We went as a family of 5 and had plenty of room, the kids played upstairs and we had downstairs, we loved the sunk in spa bath and the lovely touch of a jug of bubble bath beside it. It was one of the cleanest places I've stayed and I am picky about that. There was a cute short path... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this motel, or its lovely owners. The rooms are comfortable, quiet, right on the lake front and have in-room spa baths!!! the rooms also have plenty of cooking equipment which was handy with children. The friendly hosts are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble including sending back left behind items - above and beyond... More

I stayed in the smaller Nook room while in Taupo for work. The room was nice and cozy even though outside was windy & very chilly at the time. The room had everything I needed for myself and the staff/managers were very friendly and helpful. The corporate rate was good as well. Would recommend and stay again.

We always stay here when we are in Taupo. Julie and Terry are wonderful hosts and informative about the area. The rooms have everything you need. Since the first time we inadvertently stumbled on this accomodation standards have been consistently maintained at the same great level

We spent 2 nights here and enjoyed it. Great location just out of town and on the lakefront. The wind picked up in the evening but with a few layers on we managed to have a picnic at the water. The next day we hired bikes from Terry (a bargain at $10 each) and had a great day riding around... More

We have stayed here twice now 2 years ago and most recently in September as part of our honeymoon road trip. Beautiful clean rooms with huge spa baths. Hosts Julie and Terry are awesome. This is definitely our place to stay in Taupo.

We loved our stay in the beautiful two-storey cottage (thanks for the upgrade, guys!). The bed was really comfortable and we loved the spa bath. Everything was wonderfully clean and fresh, and Julie and Terry were very helpful. I appreciated the complimentary use of the washing machine (you just need to pay for the drier). I would highly recommend Julie... More
