Very Good 8.0 From 156 reviews

Baycourt Lakefront Motel, Taupo, New Zealand
Although we have stayed here other times we found this not at all up to standard. I had 2 young preschoolers with me who did not like cold showers. The shower would be warm for a couple of seconds and then freezing cold. The sofa bed for one to sleep on would not come apart and when I asked was told I needed to move the single bed and tv to make it fit. Ridiculous. When I enquired the host seemed very uninterested in helping us and would look into it but not sorry for our stay or apologise at all. Felt couldn't care less.

good accommodation with multiple bed arrangements
We have been given the top floor on the corner overlooking the lake which is awesome, the room is quiet and has a kitchen facility if you want to cook. There are 2 TVs, one in the lounge and one in the bedroom so there's no fighting over what to watch (but the remote in our room is not working). There's some scaffolding all over the motel as the new owner is putting some work into the building, so there are some dirty chairs and tables lying around and steel that we can't really use the balcony outside of our room, but there's another one along the corridor which can still be used. The room has a spa bath, but does get very noisy when people are turning on taps or the spa bath as I can hear it from next door as well. The door of our bedroom to the kitcken/living area is sort of not aligned so it is really hard to close, a rather excessive force is required to just shut it a bit (not fully as we do not want to get trapped). Our room can have 5 people sleeping in it, 2 people in the bedroom and a single bed in the living room and a sofa bed which can fit another 2 more (at least for our room). Overall it is a good place to stay and practical for a family.

Unfortunate circumstances during peak period
Unfortunately most of our stay was quite disappointing. The room was leaky causing the wet carpet to produce a disgusting smell within both the bedroom and bathroom (we could not stand in either room for even a few minutes without feeling nauseous). We were unable to sleep in the bedroom and all had to squeeze in the living area but the smell still came through. It is a health hazard which almost cause multiple people to have asthma attacks during our stay. Leaky hotel should not have been operational until these problems are fixed. The management was still quite helpful despite the limitations of the situation and hope the motel is fixed for others to enjoy in the future.
