This apt. Was spotless with quality fittings and a massive spa bath. Staff very good. Great place to stay. Situated right on the lake and a short walk to nearby restaurants and town. Great boat trip on Ernest Kemp to see the Maori carvings. A must do!

Absolutely loved the stay at the hotel, we asked for a second floor front facing room on the lake front front and that's what we got. The traffic wasn't a bother for noise, but the plumbing in the building was. If someone below us turned on a tap at 10.30 at night we heard it rattling up to our room...

We have stayed at the Baywater for our last 2 trips to Taupo for the annual concert. Having stayed at other motels over previous years, we now wouldn't stay anywhere else. Nothing is too much trouble for hosts Stephen and Lynda. Unfortunately we had trouble with the hot water on our room, so were relocated to another unit. When we...

Wonderful place to stay, prefect location and great owners. Well done. We always hope that there is vacancies at the bayswater when we are traveling between Palmerston and Auckland. Just fantastic, not to far from town.

Great lake views and good location straight across the road from the family swimming beach at Taupo. The room was nice and comfortable but could do with some maintenance. The bedside lights both have exposed wires which made them unsafe to use and the spa pool tap handle kept falling off. The spa was a good touch though.

We stayed here for one night in December 2015. The room was clean and modern with a spa bath in the bedroom. The location of the motel is approximately a 20 to 30 minute walk into the town of Taupo. We had a nice room with a veranda overlooking the lake.

Our first time in Lake Taupo - FANTASTIC! The Baywater Lakeview Motel was FAB. We were there from Christmas Eve and on our arrival we had a card and Christmas Cake waiting for us and then on Christmas Day a box of chocs from the owners - what a lovely surprise! It was everything we expected and more - thanks...

If you want to be on the busiest part of the lakefront then this is the place for you. A 15 minutes walk will get you into town or a skip across the road will see you in the water. You can sit on your balcony and people watch for hours. The traffic is very busy and thus a tad...
