Quiet, clean and cosy ambiance. Friendly and helpful owner. Peaceful lakeside views. Excellent clean amenities provided. A 5-minute drive from the town centre for groceries or meals. Motel provides latest restaurant/cafe compendium. Value for money.

We stayed in a smaller room called The Nook, which we found perfect for 2 of us. The room had character and all the usual facilities. The ensuite has a large shower enclosure, the kitchen is well equipped and there is a small courtyard with table and chairs. The motel has a useful laundry room with free use of a...

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.
