Great place to stay and in a great location. I would be happy to recommend this place to anyone. Really nice clean and modern motel with everything we wanted. This was one of few motels that are truly lake front, as most others have the road between them and the lake. Stunning views of the lake and out to the...

Everything you could want in one place, the deluxe rooms are beautiful and give you the feeling of being in the Mediterranean, the family rooms are cosy and all rooms contain a spa pool. The views of the lake and mountains are amazing with the lake right at your door step and 2 natural hot springs to dip your feet...

Where to start!? Boulevard waters is FANTASTIC. We booked last minute and got the deluxe suite on the top floor. Absolutely beautiful room with modern styling and to die for views! The managers of the Motor Lodge were so welcoming and kind and always greeted you with a smile. The beds are incredible, the rooms are so quiet and I...

Extremely clean room, nice staff, good location and wonderful lookout from the room balcony. I spent one night in this place which is very nice, but also very expensive conidering that they don't offer a Breakfast included in the price. I booked a Deluxe Upper Level Lake View Studio, that costed 240 dollars. So in general is a very nice...

I spent one night in this beautiful lakeside Motel. The views are uninterrupted and the black swans were in abundance. Watching the activities on the lake and also observing the steam rising from the lake as I had a cup of tea on the balcony was just lovely. Later on I was able to have a lovely spa bath with...

We look no further than Boulevard Waters when staying in Taupo. As ex holiday home owners in the area, we know how good this location is and the new owners are doing a great job. Being waterfront on this stunning lake is paramount (sigh homesick for it). The kitchen faciities are good, restaurants are close by, rooms are being upgraded,...

We stay here when visiting Taupo and always enjoy our stay. This time we had a top floor room which allows a little more privacy and great views both toward Taupo and down the Lake. Room was in very good repair with some parts outside being repainted. Rooms have good soundproofing with no road noise, only the waves lapping of...

This property is right on the lake, very clean stylish and and quiet. The managers Wayne and Linda are very helpful and always available for advice.
