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!!

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.

We stayed 3 nights recently with our 3 children and had the best time. We would definitely recommend Cottage Mews to anyone thinking of staying in Taupo. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. 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...
