“Friendly, welcoming and clean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We enjoyed our overnighting "The Nook" a quiet little corner of the motel, our welcome was warm and friendly. The breakfast was good value for the price, and arrived on time, even the toast was warm. This motel was rated high on Trip Advisor and we now know why.

Our hosts at Cottage Mews were very friendly and made our stay in Taupo very relaxing. The rooms are very well laid out and the spa bath a wonderful luxury. The views of the lake are amazing and there is easy access to the lake shore for enjoyable walks. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets.

Julie was very welcoming and genuinely was interested in making sure we had a pleasant stay. We only stayed one night, but if we're in Taupo again, we'd make the trip longer! Also, we left something in the room by accident, and Julie let us know by email, and promptly sent it to us, which we got just a couple days later. Thank you!

Room Tip: We had the room on the end that didn't have a lake view, but it had a nice garden view.

We always stay at Cottage Mews when visiting Taupo and it never fails to deliver.
The units are clean and well maintained.
I like the personal touches such as the milk coming in a crockery jug rather than a cardboard box.
Each unit has a private little courtyard and is surprisingly roomy.
The double spa bath is wonderful and comes complete with a jug of lavender bath oil.
This motel has all the advantages of being on the lake front and fairly close to town without the trappings of foot traffic and noise.

Lived up to the reviews on Tripadvisor . Very clean and comfortable with helpful staff. A little way out of town but parking is good and quiet at night. Bathroom was new and squeaky clean. There it's a microwave, table and chairs for self catering.

Home away from home. Everything is at your fingertips. Our hosts are welcoming, cheerful and extremely helpful. They will go out of their way to accommodate you. We love this place and will always stay here when in Taupo.

Room Tip: Two story unit has great views of the lake and is only a walk through to the lake. The single units...
