Very clean and tidy rooms, my room had a spa bath and shower. Very friendly check-in by Simon. Lake views from upstairs rooms, room had balcony. A great place to stay, have stayed there before and will stay there again.

Lovely, clean, warm, spacious motel-style accommodation with cooking facilities (stove top). We booked the room with private spa surrounded by stones, plants & small trees - wonderful :). 300mb of free wifi included. There is a cafe onsite. Thank you Baycrest :)

Generally good standard motel. Good sized rooms and reasonably good quality furnishings. Spa pool is excellent. Drawbacks are that the lake view turned out to be rather marginal. Kitchen and its equipment was no better than average and free wifi isn't free. If you're stuck you could do a lot worse but if you have time to book then you... More

We have stayed here a few times now, the atmosphere is great, rooms are good value in size, and the location is good too. We have taken advantage of the rooms with the hot tub that was private and very relaxing. Would totally recommend.

Great motel which is kept well clean and all normal motel facilities available. Good view of the lake from the top floor rooms and nice spa. Only little problem is it is a little bit of a walk to town but other than that this place is worth a visit. Highly recommended.

Clean spacious room and bathroom with good facilities and our room had a really good outlook across the lake towards the distant mountains. The staff were helpful and we would be happy to recommend this to anyone.

We have stayed here many times over several years, the lodge has fantastic beds, hot tubs that are private and relaxing, great pool, privacy , views and best service in the area 10 out of 10 Baycrest Lodge, well worth the stay. We have had romantic getaways here along with taking the family and friends along, every visit has impressed.

We only stayed for 1 night so didn't spend very much time here but we were very pleased with our short stay. The room was beautifully clean, very spacious and very quiet. The bathroom was very spacious too which was great and our room had a large spa bath. The bed was comfortable and the whole suite had underfloor heating... More

This is such a lovely place - quiet and the family rooms are quite spacious. We loved having such a big bathroom! The thermal pool was fantastic and the rooms were very tidy - I would definitely recommend.

Upon checking in I knew I had selected the right place. The owners are fantastic.. I was here for the Taupo Ironman as as all athletes are was concerned about the location and quietness of the property but this place exceeded all expectations, exceptionally clean, great views and modern! I will be back!
