Very helpful staff. Highly recommended. Quiet location yet quite central and very handy for taking walks around the Lake. Will definitely stay here again and happy to recommend to friends and family in NZ and further afieldMore

we booked through internet and hoped the place would be as good as they promised. The place is even better! And so is the service. The lady/owner of the place helped us with all we asked her and more. The rooms were cosy and very clean and each room had a small piece of garden too. The hotel is quite close to the lake. Absolutely a place to return and to recommand.
Thanks for your positive comments brokgoud. I enjoyed meeting you all. Hope the rest of your travels with your friends went well and provided some memorable golfing and other moments.
We only spent one night in Taupo, meeting up with a family member for a birthday. Read the reviews and as per usual my fellow contributors did not let us down. A very pleasant spot, friendly hosts (excellent cafe recommendation) and a comfortable unit. Virtually lakeside so very easy acces for a stroll along the shore.
Offer of an 11am check out was appreciated.
The roading system has of course change in Taupo, which made for a quiet night's sleep. A short drive back into town.
You will not go wrong.
Yes, the French Café is one of many excellent cafes in Taupo - glad you enjoyed it, middleageoe. Since the east Taupo bypass opened three years ago we have enjoyed the quieter nights on Lake Terrace. Thanks very much for staying with us and for taking time to post feedback.
So of course I read the reviews before booking Cottage Mews, but once I arrived the friendliness of our lovely host, and the really nice motel room with the cute courtyard, easy access to the beach and of course the spa sealed the deal.
If I come back to Taupo any time soon, I'm staying here.
KariBri, many thanks for your review - and maybe we will see you again one day? We just had a British couple return after four years - familiar faces, and it made the time between their visits seem no time at all!
we really enjoyed our time at the Cottage, the site has very good location, the rooms are clean and comfortable, we had a view of the lake Taupo and enjoyed a beautiful sunset from the balcony.
Nos gustó mucho nuestro tiempo en el Cottage, el sitio tiene muy buena ubicación, las habitaciones son limpias y confortables, tuvimos vista al lago Taupo y disfrutamos un hermoso atardecer desde el balcón.
Glad you enjoyed your stay KahydaR - hope the rest of your New Zealand travels went well. Thanks for your review.
We stayed in one of the Lakeside apartments which offered views of the lake from upstairs and a private courtyard off the bedroom. It was an easy 20 minute walk into tone, but far enough away to be really peaceful. It had everything one would need to be comfortable. The only issue is that it got hot and with the windows opened for relief you got bugs, unless all the lights were turned out. Otherwise we loved our stay.
Great to have you stay Lcarrell56 and thanks for your feedback. We have had a run of fantastic early-autumn weather and the wee lake midges have been about - but after a rainy summer this year we're enjoying the warm days. This weekend we have the 100km Oxfam Trailwalker in Taupo - the leaves are turning but the sky is still blue!
