We had a fantastic view of the lake from our upper level unit. The room was modern, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. It had a great spa in the bathroom, as well as a giant bed and we were pleased to see 'real' coffee. We felt very comfortable and the hosts were friendly and very helpful. We would highly recommend...

Baycrest Lodge offers helpful, friendly service as well as spacious, comfortable rooms. The hot pools on the lower level rooms are heavenly and the view from the top rooms is beautiful. We just keep going back!!

This is a great hotel with fantastic extras of the heated outdoor pool and individual spring plunge pools and nice gardens with some rooms. Lovely and clean and friendly service. Not far from the lake front. Well equipped.

Really enjoyed our stay and the hot spa just outside our door on a cold night. We would go again. Having a separate room for the kids was great and great big bathroom . Staff friendly and helpful. Lovely.

After a very warm welcome to the Baycrest, I found my accommodation to be quiet, clean and very comfortable, just what I needed after a busy working week! It's in a really convenient location, close to all amenities in Taupo. The unit had everything I needed and I will definitely stay at the Baycrest again.

We stayed on our way back to Auckland. The property was easy to find, parking was adequate, manager was very friendly and helpful. We had a lower level room with a mineral pool, while it was not a lake view room we could still see the lake - best of both worlds. Room was spacious and the bathroom large. The...

We stayed at Baycrest Lodge one night on our way south. We arrived latish, to a very welcome reception and a heated unit. The spa was filled and the kids were very happy. Comfy beds. Loved that the two singles were in the bedroom as we could put the kids down and relax the living area (where the queen bed...

This is my third stay here and love it every time. The owners are so helpful and friendly - nothing is too much for them to keep their guests happy. I had an upstairs unit this time - magnificent view and instead of outside spa was a lovely inside spa bath, just ideal for one. As usual the unit was...

A truly great place to stay, wonderful friendly hosts the rooms are immaculately clean and modern. The outdoor private hot pools are great and a real bonus, the room was large with all the facilities you need and the bed is very comfy highly recommended can't wait to go back. You would be pushed to fault this place.
