We stayed here two nights in the cottage with the lake view and spa. The cottage was very pretty with beautiful furniture and decor. We did have the bedroom with a spa attached (which we didn't use). The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Close to the lake we hired bikes at the motel (for a small fee) and rode...

I was a bit disapointed in this Studio unit as it was sectioned off from another bigger unit and the dividing wall was very thin. Also we had to park our car on the corner of the unit close to the road as there was no carpark. Maybe some other units were ok but ours was noisy at night with...

HI Michael - sorry your stay wasn't relaxing, but could you email me directly so that I know which unit you stayed in? We have car parks for all guests and no studios where you park on the corner or close to the road. Hopefully you had a better sleep at the next stop!

The service is outstanding. The unit was beautifully presented and very welcoming. The cooked breakfast is well worth trying. The hosts certainly go the extra mile to ensure your experience is "the best"!

We stayed at Cottage Mews Motel over the October bank holiday weekend. The accomadation was of a very high standard and less than 2 minutes walk from the lake. The staff were most helpful and there were lots of little nice touches such as afternoon cream tea delivered to your room if you wanted it. The bikes that we hired...

We were upgraded to a very roomy apartment at the small unit price - cheerfully looking after return customers. As always, the staff were very helpful. They know Taupo well and pointed us to new attractions and dining options well suited to our needs. Great service

Staying at The Cottage Mews is a home away from home. It is so comfortable and relaxing. Highly recommend this place for anyone. We were staying with our 13th old Son and Julie was so accommodating. He slept so well in our room and there was loads of room for his cot. We also had everything we needed in the...

We arranged for 2 families to stay in 2 family units over the weekend for a local trail ride. Another 2 family members decided to join us so Cottage Mews provided another unit on our request. Only a Family Unit was available which we decided to accept but at the time of settling they only charged us for a studio...

Very helpful, friendly, clean and great location. Thanks very much. Handy location with the lake just a short trot down a path. Front desk staff were very helpful and gave good tips for what to see about town.

My wife and I spent 4 nights at Cottage Mews. The accommodation was quiet, comfortable and well cared for. Right on the lakeside just a short drive, or long walk from Taupo town centre. If you are keen, the walk is a really pleasant one around the lake shore. The owners could not have been more helpful and went out...
