We only had a handful of requirements for our stay in Taupo, that it have a view of the lake, a spa, and that it be clean and affordable. In this, and many other things, Cottage Mews exceeded our expectations. We chose Cottage Mews for the days after our New Zealand wedding because we wanted somewhere quiet to recuperate. We left feeling a million dollars.
Julie is an absolute gem, she really made us feel welcome, even giving us lifts to the local spas as we weren't driving. We had previously mentioned that we were on our honeymoon, and there was a bottle of wine and a note waiting for us in the kitchen (for which we forgot to say thank you - sorry!).
Some reviews mention that the rooms are dated, and there is evidence of this, but our bathroom was recently renovated, the room was extremely clean and fairly priced.
There is a track down to the lake, of which we made good use, a lending library of books, free in room wifi and a lovely, lovely staff. Would definitely recommend!
