    Best place I've stayed in Taupo

    Relaxing stay at Lake Tapau
    We used this as a stopover between Wellington and Auckland and wished we had booked longer. The rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean. We particularly enjoyed the thermal spring which was very relaxing. It is a very short walk to the lake where we spent a lovely afternoon swimming and enjoying the sunshine. Although we didn't use the pool it looked a lovely peaceful area. We would definitely recommend.

    What a view!
    Omg! What a view!. We loved this place, and plan to be back for more. The space was huge. 3 single beds in a separate room. Lounge has a double bed and sofas. Small dining area with kitchenette. All that we needed for a nice time out. The lady at reception was nice and friendly.

    Baycrest Lodge - we highly recommend !
    Baycrest Lodge is fantastic! Our room was clean and spacious, with a large spa bath and an awesome view over the lake from the balcony. The Owners - Jody and Barry - are lovely and went out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. The swimming pool is heated and was a wonderful treat on a crisp morning - and their bathrobes are as soft as cotton wool - would love to know where they buy them! We would highly recommend Baycrest and look forward to staying there again.
