New Zealand is expensive in many ways, but $146 per night for a room that was spacious, comfortable, with a hot tub, a spa pool, and a fantastic direct view of Lake Taupo.... you can pay that much for a basic hotel room in anywhere USA with no view! In addition, the room had a small kitchenette set up with... More

We were looking for basic accommodation for a quick overnight stay - found the most relaxing location, right on the lake front. Beautiful view, very clean and tidy facility, awesome service - great cafe next door for breakfast/brunch/lunch - literally right next door! Plunge pool was awesome. Definitely a first choice on our next trip south!

Rooms very clean and warm. Loved the heated pool and the walk along the lake directly out the back gate. Managers very helpful with local information and restaurants. Great place to rest after driving and sightseeing.

We had such a fantastic overnight stay, perfect place to get away to! We really enjoyed being absolute lake front, being able to watch the world go by and the sun set from our room and balcony on the second level, was also so nice to take a wander along the lake! The room was great, very spacious, toasty warm... More

The room was long and narrow with a very small bedroom for the kids. The courtyard was right on the waterfront with lovely views. There was no air conditioning unit... More

Boulevard has become our preferred accommodation in Taupo. This is our third stay and you simply do not get better views of the Lake anywhere else. The rooms are immaculately clean, modern and comfortable. The hosts accommodating and friendly.
