“Immaculate accommodation in excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Stayed for one night travelling alone, was made to feel really welcome by Julie. The room was spotless with very comfortable bed and nice shower. A big treat was the wonderful filter coffee available in the room. It is only two minutes walk to the lake so the location is superb. I would recommend this place to anyone.

I was in Taupo as a single to attend a family gathering early October and selected the Cottage Mews to be within walking distance of the venue. How lucky I was. The staff were very helfull and friendly from Management to Cleaners.The weather was pretty miserable but the room warm as toast. Nice to have proper milk in the jug for the tea and catch up on my emails with the free Wi Fi so I extended an extra day.

We've stayed here before and won't hesitate to come back again. The layout is great for families - we had tons of room for the three of us. Unit was clean and tidy. Two toilets and two tv's is helpful with a family. Good cooking facilities although we didn't use these this time. Cottage Mews is well located, not right in the middle of town but still close. Lovely spa bath upstairs, easy walk to the lake, great value. We'll be back again.

Stayed 2 nights in beautiful buzzing Taupo. Cottage mews quaint, spotlessly clean, and run by lovely friendly efficient and helpful hosts. In the process of being refurbed, but great layout (kids downstairs, parents up), lovely spa, and great location, awesome bike ride along the lake to town. Also good cooking facilities,share BBQ, immaculate laundry. Recommend to anyone!

My husband and I stayed at The Cottage Mews last week on our NZ road trip and loved every minute. The host was so kind and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We loved the room so much we ended up just ordering pizza and staying tucked inside until checkout. The spa and lavender bubble bath in the room was a lovely touch.

It is one of the best value motel in New Zealand. We stayed there last Saturday in a family room. The room was clean, had 2 toilet, spa and shower,2 TVs. The heating was not bad (2 small heaters and electric blankets), although I still prefer heat pump. :-)

Julie, the host is a very nice person, she recommended us a very good French Cafe which only has been opened for 5 weeks.

However, the rain was crazy Saturday night and Sunday morning. We could not sleep well because of the noise of the heavy rain! Also we had to cancel cruise and jet boat due to the terrible weather. We knew it was not anyone's fault, winter in NZ sometime can be very annoy.
Next time when we travel again, we will choose to live in a hotel apartment If the rain is too heavy.

We will recommend this cottage style motel to all my friends,and definitely come back again!

A fantastic motel, with great amenities and friendly welcoming staff. Staff organise the units for a late arrival with the unit being heated and beds on, most appreciated after a long late night drive, thanks. More than happy to stay again on another trip through :-)
