Great stay

Posted Apr 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
This motel is lovely, the rooms are spacious and clean and well maintained. We stayed in a room with a private hot tub which we weren't able to use as we only stayed 1 night and didn't know we had to 'pre book' it. So if you stay only 1 night make sure you book the hot tub in advance. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Stay somewhere else if you can.

Overall this Motel was very disappointing. The rooms get no sun during the day which results in them being very cold. The rooms were clean, however the Decor was tired and bland with a number of electrical lighting fittings and sockets that did not work. Both the management and staff were very aloof and we never recieved a smile or hello as they passed us on a daily basis. The Manager, Simon, walked around with a continual scowl on this face which did not promote a welcoming environment. Our overall impression was that this was a business that is focused on getting as much money out of their guest rather than providing a quality service. On a postive note the location is good and the area quiet.

comfortable, friendly well-located hotel

Posted Mar 9, 2014
Pros: See above
Cons: Have a safe in the room.
Location: Huku Falls & hikes as Mt Tangariro national park were both great. Lots of restaurants to choose from in Taupo. We especially liked the Vine Eatery.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Baycrest Lodge. Our upstairs room (#17) was quiet, roomy, well-appointed and had a lovely view of the lake from the balcony. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and the furnishings were nice. There was plenty of room for luggage and we didn't feel cramped., as is the case in many hotel rooms We appreciated the free Wi-Fi and that the hotel used environmentally-friendly products in the bathroom. The front desk staff person was very friendly and helpful. He gave us several recommendations and answered our questions about things in the area. The Lodge is located a few minutes drive from the main part of town (about 10-15 walk). We'd definitely recommend Baycrest Lodge and would stay there again if we get the chance to return to Taupo.

Nice hotel, lake view room

Posted Mar 8, 2014
Pros: Clean, lake view but not right on busy street. Kitchen area. Nice seating area for watching TV. Nice balcony/small patio to enjoy the view.
Cons: Can't be improved but the parking lot is a little small.
Location: Great location. We played golf at nearby Kin Loch and Wairakei. went fly fishing, Viewed the waterfall and rushing river. Nice town to stroll, shop.
Very nice manager, nice room with large bathroom, with large tub and large shower. Not within walking distance to restaurants, but ok, town at Lake Taupo is not far and has free parking in the evenings. Nice to have washer/dryer facility for use for a nominal fee.

spa was the main attraction

Posted Feb 3, 2014 on Hotels.com
Even though this place was not right in the centre of Taupo, it was very good and having that spa in the courtyard just made everything worthwhile. Be careful of the internet charges over 300mb.....

We stayed one night at the Baycrest. Very friendly owners and staff, atmosphere and a large and spacious room with a balcony and great view over the lake. Be careful of extra charges for internet usage only 100MB included!

Great Stay

Posted Jul 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
Had everything we needed and the thermal pool in the private garden area was a real bonus!!! The owner greeted us on arrival and was very polite, friendly and welcoming. The room was clean including facilities available but the only very, very small issue was the room got extremely warm during the night (under floor heating) but really it was no biggie........rather be overly warm than cold! Excellent accommodation, can't really fault anything - if the chance ever arises, would definitely stay agin!!!
