Warm, welcoming, and non-intrusive hosts at the Baycrest made my three day stay the best this summer so far. Professional and no fuss, got me through the check-in process and into my room quickly, so that I could freshen up after a long drive up from Wellington, and a longer evening ahead over dinner with friends. The room was scrupulously...

Close to town yet far enough away to be nice and quiet and is the perfect place to stay for Round the Lake Cycle Event. Have booked again for next year. Nice and tidy rooms and very spacious and the hospitality is brilliant.

Nice lodge, with great views. Clean and spacious rooms, and wonderful hosts. A little hike into town for food, but being right on the lake, hearing the kids playing or the waves lapping, was wonderful.

Thanks very much for the very tidy and comfortable room. Views from the balcony are great and the place is located in a convenient place near town. Shame we couldn't stay for longer but will be back!!

This is the second time my partner and I have stayed at Baycrest Lodge. Both times we found the rooms to be immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful.

We like it, our room had a beautiful view of the Lake Taupo. It was spacious and clean. Only few minutes walk to the restaurants and shops. We would differently make reservation at Baycrest Lodge for future trips to Taupo

The Lodge is very well run; rooms are spacious & well equipped -mine had kitchen, large well-supplied bathroom and everything you could need. I was there for business so didn't try the spa but am sure it's efficiently run. Highly recommended.

I stay at the Baycrest several times a year when I'm in the area on business and I've noticed the same company vehicles in the carpark time after time so I'm not the only one that keeps going back. The motel is near, but not on, the main road so traffic noise is negligible. The rooms are clean, quiet and...

We enjoyed the stay very much . The rooms were clean and spacious. The owner was very hospitable and the location was good for us. The only area of improvement was the garden which was a bit overgrown .

Very nice room, very confortable, very nice thermal private tub with views to the lake, and a great service, we had a little problem with our taxi and they offered their help to solve it. 100% recommended.
