Fabulous 8.6 From 156 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Surprise! Spa on your balcony!
Really great place to stay. Taupo is amazing and I'll be back ok our next trip! The Cove was a great option, right on the lake and literally right off the highway. We were surprised to have a jaquzzi spa on our balcony and it was very clean. Only thing wrong with the stay was posting said King bed and we had a queen. Also, couch in living area not comfy so watching tv before bed was difficult because no tv in bedroom. (Recognizing that's probably not why you're in taupo!)

We knew it was a mini studio but much smaller than we expected as struggled to have space for suitcases. Didn’t help that room overlooked an outside patio area where a large and noisy party was gathered and who didn’t really consider any other guests by the noise they were making. The location was fab.

Great hotel on the lake
Lovely room over looking the lake. The bed was so comfy. Hamish was very friendly. Fantastic location and area. Milk at check in and biscuits for tea was such a nice touch.
