We stayed at Cottage Mews for just one night on our trip from Auckland to the South Island. There were three of us so it was a nice surprise to have a separate bedroom and bathroom with spa bath upstairs. A short walk and we were at the lake. Would stay there again.

We stayed at the cottage mews for 5 nights, several years ago, while touring the Lake Taupo area of New Zealand. Our room led out to a nice garden area, we were very pleased with our accommodation with jacuzzi bath, a breakfast basket was also included with the price. The owners very very nice people.

This was such a nice place to stay whilst in Taupo. The owner Sonja was so inviting and friendly, you could tell that nothing was too much for her and she genuinely wanted to ensure you had the best possible stay!! We stayed in Cabin 9 (beautiful 2 story space which overlooks the water) The bed was comfortable and the...

We travelled as a couple and stayed in Cottage Mews during our stay in Lake Taupo. Sonja was very lovely and accommodating during our stay. It was comfortable and I would highly recommend this venue. The lake is just out the back gate and it is only a few minutes drive to the main city area for restaurants. Lots of...

We arrived earlier than anticipated and were quite prepared to park the car and go exploring prior to check in time. Sonja greeted us and would have none of this and immediately arranged for our room to be available almost immediately. The accommodation was on two levels with the bedroom and whirlpool bath (complete with a supply of lavender oil)...

The service offered on check in was warm and friendly, with recommendations made for things to do in the area and places to eat. Our little room tucked away at the end of the row of rooms was clean and well presented with a 2 person spa right in the bedroom, thoughtfully accompanied by bubble bath foam. Upstairs was a...

I needed a break for a night to chill out. My room had a cute cottage feel with a little private courtyard. The jacuzzi was superb and I was even walking distance from Lake Taupo and could go swimming. It was so lovely and Sonja so welcoming and friendly that I stayed another night. Charming place that I will certainly...

As the backpackers were fully booked, we had to change plans for the night. After the night we said: quite a putty we can't stay longer in Taupo. Very friendly owner, nice and cosy cottage, excellent service, a few steps to the lake and a jacuzzi for after the swim.. what do you want more?! :)

We stayed at Cottage Mews during a 6 weeks tour of NZ and arrived quite late in the evening after a busy touring day. Sonja couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. We were shown to a very pleasant room with lounge/kitchen upstairs and a lovely spa bath downstairs with separate bathroom and an outside private courtyard. We bought some...

“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!
