At times I could see the lake and it appeared we were on a ship as there was no land to be seen between our studio and the lake. Sunsets were magnificent. Tranquil and restful destination. Very good linen. Sadly the shower has a fixed shower head.

Luckily on a business trip to Taupo recently I had the good fortune to choose Boulevard Waters Motor Lodge as my welcoming abode for the night. Situated on the waters edge between a number of motels lakeside in Taupo, Boulevard Waters is a boutique motel, catering for a small number of people who seek great value, piece of mind and...

Nice place to stay for a family. Good: it's right on the lake so all rooms have a lake view, owners are very nice and friendly, units are serviced daily, handy parking, thermal pool inside the room, underfloor heating, very warm in winter Not so good: second bedroom in the family unit was unusually small, definitely not for 5 people...

Spacious, clean room with modern decoration. Kitchen was well equipped. The in room Jacuzzi was spacious and bubble bath was provided thoughtfuly. There is natural spring water pool which really soothes a tired day. Washing machine and dryer is also available in the hotel with a very minimal charge. We had an enjoyable stay here definately.

We've been coming back to Boulevard Waters since our kids were small, love the location, right at lake edge. The family units are ideal, no matter if your kids are small, or growing teenagers. We'll keep coming back

I've stayed in Taupo quite a few times over the years but this has to be one of the very best experiences I've had there. The only downside was not being able to stay longer. The views are magnificent. The owners, John and Carolyn (I hope I have that right) are friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfy and immaculate...

Love to stop in Taupo when we travel south. Boulevard Waters is one of our habitual places to stay. It is a wee way from the township but we like it this way. It is quiet and is right on the lake so you can just walk out the back gate to be at the waters edge. The room has...
