we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at cottage mews taupo. the overcast conditions suited our son who rode the 160km cycle challenge. the unit was ideal for us, close to everywhere and right by the lake too. thank you for your welcome you made our stay a breeze.

Great location, very welcoming and friendly proprietors. This older facility is well kept and a great place to relax. While we weren't disappointed in any place we stayed during or 2 weeks, the Cottage Mews Motel in Taupo was our favorite.

My husband Keith and I always stop at the Cottage Mews Motel when travelling through Taupo. We have always been received in a very open and friendly manner, the room was very clean and comfortable. The manager at Cottage Mews even allowed us to have a later check out time because we arrived late at the motel. Highly recommend others...

Handy location, clean and tidy and friendly staff. All the basics were covered. Not flashy but definitely comfortable. Would stay there again. Our studio was more set up for a couple than two friends rooming for the Taupo Cycle Challenge, but the fold out sofa bed was adequate.

The owners of this Place are really social and friendly. The room was clean and had a good bed. The negative was that it was really easy to hear the neighbours so that can be irritating for some people. There is a bit far to the city centre but i suppose the most people who stay here has a car.

We arrived early evening with no booking. Had stayed at Cottage Mews before and were impressed so it seemed a logical choice. Got the last room. The hostess was very accommodating and helpful, the room was comfortable and the spa bath was a bonus.

We booked two nights in the family suite as we have an 8 month old and 3 year old. It was very clean with everything you needed and it made our stay in Taupo enjoyable and memorable. No complaints and great value for money. Our 3 year old loved staying in a two storey motel with stairs.

The motel is a short drive from the town centre (or a long walk on a nicer day). The room was good. The welcome was friendly and informative. We took up two restaurant recommendations on a one night stay. Both were good.

“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!
