We only had one night on our tour of NZ but was wonderful.
Maisonette style, bedroom and spa bath plus shower and loo downstairs, lounge and kitchenette upstairs.
Friendly and most accommodating hostess.
Our own back yard with gate to path leading to Lake.........alas weather wasnt great.
View to lake lovely
Just wish we could have stayed longer.
Great place to stay, would thoroughly recommend.

I thank the people who wrote the good reviews that prompted me to book one night at this hotel. It was everything & more than we expected.!! The bedroom was downstairs & the kitchenette/sitting room was upstairs so that it looked over the lake. A great idea. Not only was there a spa bath but a small jug of lavender oil to add to the water. Just the job when you have been travelling. A pity the weather wasn't better so we could have sat out in your own little garden. Anyone like me who needs a bit of personal space would love this.The reception staff went out of their way to help us with finding places & choosing routes. It was so comfortable I was reluctant to leave & wished we had booked another night!

My husband and I stayed in 8 different hotels during our stay in New Zealand. This was by far the best for our middle of the road budget. The room was charming with our own spa tub and private courtyard out back. They have available for guest use a grill which was a welcome alternative to eating restaurant food. Our host brought to us a basket with all the utensils to use plus oil and paper towels for the grill and even an apron! Our host was very gracious and was interested in our travel plans and was helpful with tips about the area. Our room was clean and spotless and well put together. My husband and I work for an airline and we stay in lots of hotels-budget to expensive so we are pretty particular about certain things mainly cleanliness, location, and furnishings. We were extremely pleased with our choice of Cottage Mews.

Cottage Mews in the only place we stay in Taupo. We have stayed in several places in Taupo over the years but we now consider Cottage Mews the only place to book. The units are very clean and tidy. It is only a brief walk to the lake (as in less than a minute!). We found the place quiet with no road noise.

The thing that sets Cottage Mews apart from other places was the wonderful host, Julie.

We would recommend Cottage Mews to others. We will definitely be going back!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are nice.
