“Lovely lake view”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We stayed in a corner family unit on level 1. There is a small bedroom with 2 singles. This room is really tiny and nothing else can fit in , great for kids. The kitchen has all the basic stuff you need. Queen bed in the hall area with huge spa next to it . There is no door for the spa. The patio is rather big and the glass panel provides unblock lake view . There were ducks and swans at the lake which we loved. Lots of people walk along the beach outside, so not much privacy. Convenient access to the beach by a side door next to the pool. Reef is just next door and can be noisy if there are children playing in their ground floor unit. Floor plan was on their website and we thought the unit was slightly bigger than expected upon arrival. Reasonable rate for a lake view accommodation .

My wife and I arrived in Taupo with no prebooked accomodation. This was first place we tried. So glad we did.
We were given 2 bed apartment on first floor with lovely views of the lake.
Apartment was very clean and tidy. Good kitchen facilities if you needed them.
Although the weather for most of our stay was not too good, it brightened up on our last night and sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine watching the sunset over the lake was special.
The path beside the apartment was busy with joggers and people out walking, but this did not bother us
Overall we were really pleased we chose the Boulevard Waters and would happily stay here again.
The owners we found to be very pleasant

Room Tip: 2 bedroom apartments have lovely views of the lake

Our family of 4 including 2 children ( in their 20s) found this motel a gem with fantastic views of the lake (water's edge), very well maintained, new looking, convenient car park and near to town. Well equipped kitchen, daily towel changes, TV etc.

Fantastic place to stay right on the waters edge, spacious rooms with in room spa. Small heated outdoor pool for guests, could get quite busy and maybe a bit noisy if the hotel was full. Great views overlooking the lake, reasonable prices, very good service.

Room Tip: Ground floor apartments have slightly less privacy from people walking along the beach in front. Pen...

My husband was working in Taupo and his boss booked Boulevard Waters Motor Lodge for us as this is his favorite place to stay while in Taupo. We were greeted by friendly owners who were very helpful and friendly. The unit was fantastic, amazing views of the lake right at your doorstep and of the mountains around Lake Taupo. The unit was immaculately clean and a good layout. The King size bed was very comfortable. There was absolutely NO traffic noise. We thoroughly enjoyed the big thermal hot pool and there is also an in-room spa in each unit.
Breakfast is available upon request and there are two wonderful restaurants close by. It was lovely to have a complimentary newspaper given to us each morning.
This place is now our favorite as well and we will look forward to staying here again.
I would highly recommend Boulevard Waters to all travelers.

Room Tip: All rooms have lake and mountain views and in-room spa units.

Myself and 2 daughters had a lovely time here. Only 3 days and EVERYTHING was great adn suited us perfectly. We will definately return.

Except - there were 3 families holidaying together with about 6-7 young children in total, who clearly needed more space. They were noisey and monopolised the smallish pool to the extreme, without comment from the owners. On arrival I was advised the girls were to be mindful of nearby neighbours and noise in the pool.
I think for these types of guests it is necessary to stipulate in the manual or at the pool that groups occupy the pool for a limited time ie.45 mins, and be considerate of other guests.

My Partner & Myself stayed just recently for our 1 year anniversary, we looked over numerous places to stay through Tripadvisor, and Boulevard Waters Taupo ticked all of the right boxes, Fantastic view of the lake, friendly owners who were more than helpful when we asked about things to do around Taupo. The unit that we stayed in was clean and tidy, we were not disappointed at all. our room was serviced daily, to a very high standard. We were most pleased with Boulevard Waters Taupo, and would definitely be going back to stay again. I would recommend this lodge to anybody.
