Lovely accommodation at a great price. Nothing too much for the staff. We felt at home immediately. Had no ice so reception gave us a bag of ice. Wanted to use the barbecue and so given big box of barbecue tools. Free washing machines. Right by the lake. Lovely.

Great motel, right on lake which is accessed via a little path from motel, lovely rooms which are very spacious and comfortable with good wi-fi. We had a cottage with double bed, spa bath and toilet upstairs and shower room, 2 single beds, kitchenette, sitting room and lovely patio area downstairs. Staff really helpful and welcoming. Only stayed one night... More

We never stay anywhere else when passing through Taupo. The units are clean, comfortable and tasteful. Homely touches separate The cottage mews from other motels. Breakfast is fresh and very reasonably priced. Right next to the lake and so quite and peaceful.

The folks at Flying Radish Travel found us this lovely cottage overlooking the lake a 100 meters from the sailing center where I could rent my America's cup miniature sail boats. Julie and terry could not have been nicer, even helped us with our laundry, supplied scrabble (I won) and a cute kitchen with a jacuzzi.

Great little motel conveniently situated just outside the town and right by the lake. Prettily planted courtyards to ground floor studios. The attention to customer service is a big plus here with free customer laundry service and free wifi. The owner even drove us to a restaurant to save us a walk. Although the units are not new they have... More

We only stayed for one night but really enjoyed staying at the Cottage Mews. Short drive from the centre and right next to the lake. Downstairs bedroom had spa bath with lavender bubbles beside it. . Upstairs there is a balcony with a view of the lake which was stunning. We had a lovely evening watching the sunset over the... More

I stayed at this motel for two nights to do the Tongariro Alpine crossing. The owner was nice to let me make a late check out on 11am for me to recover a bit more from the tramping of last day. A big thank to you :) The room is very clean, cosy and quiet.

We stayed in The Nook as a stop over on our way south from the Bay of Islands in November. It was tiny but perfect. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, lovely private terrace, small sitting area. The owners were very pleasant. We were sorry to only have one night here, would definitely stay here again.

This motel somewhat goes against the perception of what a motel is - there are lovely little touches in the rooms that make it feel more like a hotel and it's obvious that the owners really care about the place. It's a two minute walk to the beautiful Lake Taupo from the motel and an energetic walk will get you... More

I stayed one night at Cottage Mews and would definitely recommend this place. Comfortable bed, spa bath and lovely private outdoor area. Very friendly hosts and my unit was immaculate with attention to detail. Chaz and the team of housekeepers are the most obliging staff I have met in my travels. Well done to all at Cottage Mews
