We stayed just 1 night in the Nook but wished it could have been longer! The room was immaculately clean and had personal touches showing it was cared for. The motel is situated in a perfect spot right on the edge of the lake. Nothing bad to say about the place, highly recommend!!

Lovely place with personal touches which add to the experience. Thick fluffy towels and very clean throughout. Hosts very welcoming. Lovely to walk along the lake into town. We would stay here again next time we are in Taupo.

Friendly staff and really cozy rooms! Everything is clean and it's close to the beach. A bit away from the city centre, but otherwise a really good place to stay. Would recommend The cottage mews to friends, couples and families traveling.

We stayed for 3 nights. We would have love to stay 2 extras nights. The location is excellent. Not to close to the center but not too far (5mn drive). Really friendly and warm welcome. You have a kitchen, a jacuzzi, a terrasse, direct access to the lake.

The units were clean and tidy and the kids loved the spa bath upstairs and the courtyard. We also took advantage of hiring out the bikes and kayaks...

We have just spent four nights at the Cottage Mews Motel and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in Taupo. Our bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and modern.

We really fell in love with the place and will definitely recommend to others and return next time in Taupo. We were welcomed on arrival and personally escorted to our rooms where the location of extra pillows, blankets etc were pointed out.

“Rooms 9 and 10 overlook the lake although I heard very good things about the other rooms.”

“Room 9 & 10 nicest. Closest to the lake, barbeque area and best views. The Nook also nice, very private (honeymoon), but no spa bath”
  • Lake views even from inside the upstairs rooms
  • Sunsets on the lake breath taking
  • Walking or cycling around the lake for miles and miles. Awesome views
  • To go on a boat trip is an absolute must. We went on the Ernest Kemp Sunset Cruise
  • Lake Taupo!
