Had a lovely breakfast experience! Nice and quiet when we visited at 8:30, activities were provided for our two young kids and the food was delicious. Coffees were on point! Will definitely be back and would highly recommend.

Reasonably close to town, on State Highway One, The Cove Taupo, we stopped for one night. Our room had a Spa option, which one family member enjoyed... Disappointed that the Cafe was not open, either for Breakfast or Brunch Option.

We have just spent a weekend in one of the superior spa rooms and had a great experience. The cafe at the lake end of the motel is great for breakfast or a coffee. The rooms are very comfortable and surprisingly dark and quiet at night!

We made a last minute booking for two nights and were really pleased with our stay and the value for money - we have already booked a spa room for January 2021. The Cove is in a great spot and just a few km out of town (an easy walk along the lake). The Wholesome Kitchen on the lake front is a lovely spot for breakfast.

Last time we stayed here it was great - the view was amazing and the room perfect. This time although the rooms are well set out and still great view of the Lake we found the bed well past its use by and not much sleep was had with a well warn mattress- otherwise it was fine - just a note if you want to watch TV in bed that is a no - as it is in the Lounge area and the hard sofa bed was not great for relaxing into either.
