We recently stayed here while passing through on business. The room was very clean and well presented, hosts Terry and Julie were really nice and friendly and made us feel very welcome. We have now stayed twice. The rooms were awesome, great spa baths and the view from the room with the upstairs was really lovely looking out at the lake and mountain, wish we weren't on business and could have stayed longer Can't wait to return, planning to go back for a holiday soon.

We stayed at Cottage Mews in July. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable, warm and reasonably priced. I would like to thank Julie for being so helpful and friendly. She gave us lots of local tips and was more than happy to help with any requests we had. We had a fantastic afternoon with the push bikes they had for hire. It was a nice ride along the Lake into town.

You're very welcome, Rokaco. We feel lucky to live in such a beautiful part of New Zealand and we're always keen to show off the special places around the lake. Glad you enjoyed your bike ride - the path along the lakeshore is really popular, in summer and also on these cold but clear and calm winter days. The view to the mountains has been stunning this week and we never get tired of it. Best wishes.

We were warmly welcomed on a cold wintry day and were given great recommendations for dinner as well as for activities around the area with maps and pamphlets all provided with a smile.The unit had a nice kitchenette and a lovely spa bath in the upper floor.The laundry room near the reception area was also well stocked and very neat.

Thanks for your review, Min 158. It always seems a shame to need a laundry on holiday, but it's one of those unavoidable things! We appreciate you choosing to stay with us, and taking time to give us your positive feedback. Best wishes.

Lovely and helpful welcome by Julie, great little unit...(loved the spa bath!). Very close to lakeshore and a gentle 30-min walk in to town. Good value.
Plenty of parking. Kayaks available to rent. Breakfasts and snacks available on request.

Great to have you stay Bloomers 26 - you definitely fitted a lot in during your time in Taupo. A shame it was a bit cool for kayaking - the geothermal areas were a warmer option!

Requiring accommodation for a single night en route to Auckland, we chose to stay at the Cottage Mews, an establishment we have frequented before. This time, as we were planning an early start, we looked for a small room that was reasonably priced. We were offered "the Nook", a delightful little room with a queen bed, kitchenette with microwave and sink etc and an excellently appointed bathroom. In addition, to our delight, there was also a small private courtyard.

The bed was comfy, the room was clean and warm and the facilities met all our requirements. The cost of this room was, in our view, extremely low and offered excellent value for money. We will have no hesitation in staying in "the Nook" again. However, so a longer stay, the larger units with spa baths and fully resourced kitchens prove a more substantial base.

Our hosts were most helpful in terms of providing good recommendations for dinner.

We won't be looking for an alternative spot to rest our heads int he Taipo area.

Room Tip: Excellent value in "the Nook". The price reflects no spa bath and a slightly smaller and...

Hello Andrew. Thank you for your endorsement, and for your detailed description of The Nook. Hope your time with family in Auckland went well, and that it won't be too long before we see you both on your next midway stop in Taupo.
