Lake Taupo is a MUST for visitors to the North Island, as is the Tongariro Alpine Crossing which is close by. We arrived in Taupo without thermals which are highly recommended for anyone attempting the Crossing (the weather is very changeable apparently) and thought we would not be able to do the walk. Wrong. We found delightful accommodation at Cottage Mews Motel, run by Julie and Terry Slee, which is a one minute walk to the lakeside, and immediately were offered the necessary thermals and booked up to do the walk the following day (hooray). The accommodation was excellent (particularly the wonderful spa we were able to have at the end of our walk), and the advice and assistance was impeccable. The price was comparatively low and the availability of kayaks for use on the lake was a very nice surprise. We had a great stay and have much to thank Julie and Terry for.
