The Cottage Mews Motel Taupo
Ranked #2 of 68 Hotels in Taupo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 30, 2013

We stayed at Cottage Mews for 6 nights in the beginning of our trip and another 2 nights at the end. Julie and Terry were so helpful in planning side trips throughout the north island. Their suggestions were always right on the mark. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. Unexpected details that highlight the degree of hospitality included their offer to take in our laundry from the patio if it rained while we were out, and a well stocked basket of tools for the night we used the grill. My adult daughter particularly enjoyed the enormous hot tub and lavender bubble bath. The hotel is in a perfect location to enjoy the crystal clear water of Lake Taupo. Sailing center is a quarter mile away.

Very welcoming host Julie with lots of local knowledge including restaurants for an evening meal.We had a studio with lake views,very clean and comfortable and our 2 night stay was not really long enough.We really enjoyed lakeside walks and a boat cruise and can highly recommend this place.

We stayed at Cottage Mews Motel for 2 nights and we couldn't have asked for a better place. The room was spacious and very clean with a kitchenette and courtyard. Julie and Terry were absolutely lovely and very helpful. We left some clothes behind in the wardrobe and Julie posted them back to us at no charge, 5 star customer service. We’ll definitely be returning to Cottage Mews Motel!

We stayed for just one night and were more than happy with what we got. The staff and room were just perfect and we loved the modern interior in particular (bathroom is great)! Free WIFI and laundry (dryer for 2 $ extra) were great as well! We'd come back any time!

Stayed here with our family of 4 plus 2 overseas guests, had a lovely time. Kids had a lovely time feeding the ducks and swans both at days end and in early morning. Elderly grandmum was easily able to stroll the beach (only 2 minutes walk at the back of the property). Short drive to city centre...kayaks available for renting, free wifi came in handy for hubby and i. Kitchen was quite well equipped for cooking real meals. Very clean surroundings if a bit dated carpet. All in all, we will be back.

Husband and I stayed in Lakeview room at end of complex. Two levels. Top floor small balcony, kitchenette, dinner table and tv lounge area (perfect to watch sun go down over the lake). Ground floor very comfy bed, spa bath and separate toilet & shower. Management very friendly and accommodating. Offered to put motorbikes in safe location. Yay FREE WIFI!!

Room Tip: Definitely lake room if you have a choice

Stayed over the busy Easter weekend. It is a great quite spot just a minute to the shore of Lake Taupo. We had a family unit that was well equipped and our stay was made more comfortable by the owners, who go out of their way to help. great BBQ for the fish we caught. Nice outside courtyard and well appointed interior.
