We area family of four who travel through Taupo a couple times a year and usually stay at a slightly cheaper motel (only $15.00) less. But every penny counts right! Well this time we decided to splurge out a little more. We are so pleased we did. Upon driving in, the motel looked very tidy but perhaps a little bland.... More

Me and my family stayed at Baycrest Lodge for one night in December and were very happy with our stay! We stayed in an Executive Spa Family Room with View and it was absolutely beautiful! When we arrived the check-in was smooth and pleasant, staff were extremely helpful and chatty! When we got into our room we were blown away... More

Stayed here last weekend after doing a bit of research on trip advisor etc we chose this one for a one night stay. First off id like to mention the service.. really nice and welcoming which is sometimes hard to come by. Secondly the location.. one minute walk from lake Taupo and 5 min drive from the centre. The room... More

Very comfortable beds in pleasant surroundings. Nice people to deal with and slightly out of main shopping area and off main road so nice and peaceful. Thermal pool in own courtyard very relaxing to end the night.

One of the nicer stays we had on our honeymoon in NZ. The room and bathroom were both very large and comfortable. We thought the spa in the courtyard was going to be hot spring sulphuric, but it was only hot water. Plus it was just a concrete hole in the ground really, so the novelty was lost after one... More

A great place to stay with a family of five looking for good quality rooms and service. The heated swimming pool environment is perfect for a relaxing time for the whole family to indulge in together.

After quite alot of research, I decided I wanted to stay at baycrest. On arrival the motel was modern and Simon very friendly. Our room was just as modern, and was lovely and big, with a generous bathroom. We choose a ground room which had our own thermal pool, it was just lovely and relaxing, throughly enjoyable. (Even though we... More

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
