We needed secure parking for our bike and this was sorted in a few minutes. Behind a locked wooden gate with the owners vehicle parked in front of the gate at night. We enjoyed the friendly proprietor who was so helpful and we both knew from years ago. Bonus! A great catch-up on the good old days. The bottom unit... More

We loved this motel. The separate bedroom and lounge was great, with a tv in each. You could watch TV from the spa. So relaxing! We were in room 12 at the back of the top floor and had a small view of the lake. Room 9 would be perfect coz its at the front and had a great view.... More

My daughter booked this motel for us, so I had no idea what to expect when we arrived. What a pleasant surprise! From the road the building looks very small, but the apartments are quite spacious and very well equipped. The rooms were very comfortable and the shower is the best I've come across in NZ to date! Also very... More

A Lovely Little Motel ideal for a stop gap while travelling around NZ. The Rooms were clean and modern, and we managed to cook a decent breakfast in there. The lake views from the Motel are amazing, and its only a short drive to all the bars and restaurants.

I can see the appeal of this property. It's right on the beach, it's located near any of a number of things to do in Taupo (in so far as there are a number of things to do in Taupo). It was not (however) a good choice for my partner, who is accustomed to more amenities than this hotel has.... More

My family of 4 and I spent 2 nights here in January. Upon arrival the host gives you a small bottle of milk so you don't need to run to the store right away. The room has a small kitchenette. The room size and setup are such that you could easily spend a week. The hotel is right across the... More

Host kind of frightened my boyfriend when he was shocked/slightly angry that he wouldn't take the milk that was offered. I took it though, and it was some good milk. The host was actually really nice and dropped us off at the bus stop for free when we were departing and said that he would have given us a lift... More

We love the Bay Court Motel. It is located right opposite Lake Taupo, could it be any better? It is also close to the town center. We could just walk to the town for our meal, about 10 minutes walk. It was very easy to find the motel, just drive along Lake Taupo and you will see it!Plus the big... More

After being let down by a bach we had planned to stay in, we stumbled across this place & glad we did. Really clean, tidy & serviced daily. 10 min walk to town along lakeside. Would definitely recommend it & would definitely go again.
