Baycrest Lodge is very clean, cosy and comfortable, it has a stunning pool and gorgeous views from the balcony. The facilities are excellent and we are always well looked after. We have had repeated stays with Baycrest and they have always been to the same high standard.

Thanks Baycrest. The room was brilliant and the tub was an amazing way to relax at the end of each days adventures in Taupo. Easy walking distance to and from the restaurants was a real bonus. I will be recommending Baycrest Lodge to anyone traveling to Taupo.

We just had a short time in Taupo so knew we'd be comfortable at Baycrest Lodge, a place we've stayed several times before. It's easy to get to, beautifully clean and comfortable. Thanks to Simon for his friendly welcome. We'll definitely be back.

Second time staying at Baycrest. Friendly service as usual and everything up to a high standard. It seems to be every 2 years or so we stay here but will be looking to make it more of a regular stay. A+
