I chose this place primarily due to how close this property was to the lake, and it did not disappoint. If you are looking for a spot that is super close to the lake, I would definitely recommend this establishment. Below are my quick pros and cons: Pros: -The fresh lavender planted all around the cottages. When I stepped out...

We were fortunate to get the Nook, a cozy room that was perfect for our needs. Good kitchenette, wonderful bed and clean bathroom with fantastic shower. Best of all was the private patio, free washer and good cloths drying rack. Easy access to great swimming beach in front. Good parking outside room and nice waterfront walkway into town. From start...

We stayed two nights here and would have loved the time to stay more. The 'motel' offers more apartment style accommodation. Our room had bedroom (with spa bath) and bathroom downstairs with a kitchenette, lounge/dining room and balcony upstairs offering views of Lake Taupo. There is a small laneway from the property directly onto the lake and the pathway that...

Excellent value for money. Very friendly and helpful owners, including lily the cat... coolest cat in taupo! Spa bath in room is nice and big and very relaxing. It was very warm while we were there, and the room had a fan which came in handy. Highly recommend!

During our visit to New Zealand, we stayed in this motel for three nights. Good bedroom with facility for spa bath in which we enjoyed a lavender flavour bath. The bathroom and toilet too were very clean. Wifi was available. We visited nearby beautifying and scenic places.

We booked here over other places in Taupo due to the great reviews on TripAdvisor. The cottage Mews is exactly what it says it is, little cottages on the lake which are immaculately maintained. I could not fault this place if I tried, if I had to make a bad point it is that it is a long walk to...

Cottage Mews is a fantastic place to stay while you're in Taupo. The accommodations are spacious and clean. The cottages have everything you need from a kitchen area where you can cook to an immaculate laundry room (with a free washer). The cottages are exceptionally comfortable and are spotless. Each comes with it's own garden area, which is absolutely lovely....

When we first arrived I was amazed by how beautiful the accommodation was and how friendly the owner was. It is located close to the main area and walking tracks close by. The only issue I had was the mattress I slept on was old and I could feel the springs. I was the only one that had this issue....

Hello Rachel, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am really glad you enjoyed staying with us. Thank you for pointing out that the mattress has become soft. We have all ready replaced most mattresses in the last year and have ordered new single mattresses which should improve your sleep next time you visit us. Kind...

We stayed here for two nights at the end of January and found the accomodation extremely comfortable and good value. We received an extremely warm and friendly welcome and were really surprised at just how well kitted out the kitchenette was (it was our first stay at an NZ motel and set the bar very high). Free use of the...

Clean clean clean, and to us that's important. Very charming accomodation, relaxed, handy to the lake, just down a little private park. Lovely walks or bike riding by the lake. We had a full kitchen with cute retro fridge etc. comfortable clean bedding. Loved the wee private patio. The free wifi was excellent. Could go on about the friendly host,...
