            We liked the atmosphere and staff. Amazing that anyone still uses the trust system for the bar! Felt very safe, at home and warm on a frosty night. Underfloor thermal heating was great! Recomendations for dining were spot on! Very clean, comfy bed, good tv with built in dvd player.

            Outdoor hot tub area could have done with a spruce up and clean the cobwebs off under the overhang above the hot tub. Spot light in courtyard at night very bright and could not be turned off from in our room, mood killer for a night time spa!

            The outside spa bath.

            The shower head in our unit required maintenance, it didn't provide enough water and was temperature was difficult to regulate.

            The pool and the private pool was nice. It was also very close to the township, so you can walk there instead of driving.

            Every other motel I have stayed in has provided a complimentary milk every day you stayed. We only recieved a single milk on the first day of arrival.

            Hotel Staff were very friendly and accomodating.

            We didn't think the Hotel was 5 star quality as indicated. Several services and details lacked.

            Lovely big bed, warm rooms, comfortable chairs, nice hot pool, good water pressure, good selction of complimentary tea and coffee. Helpful staff.

            Very difficult parking and this created a challenge getting in and out. There was also a dripping tap which was annoying.

            It was a really enjoyable stay at the Baycrest, excellent facilities and helpful friendly staff.

            I liked everything about this hotel and I would highly recommend to everyone as a great place to stay. The room was very spacious, modern and spotless, the staff were so freindly and very accomodating. Loved the fact that the pool was thermally heated and very inviting to relax with a glass of wine (especially with the bar just there).

            I couldn't fault a thing, loved the relaxing atmoshpere and would highly recommend to everyone.

            Overall, we had a very positive experience. It was clean and offered all the services promised. The staff was very helpful and flexible when we decided to check out in the wee hours of the morning to head to Tongariro for the Alpine Crossing. We didn't explore the facilities a whole lot, but everything was clean and we slept great!

            Nothing really jumps out; it wasn't brand new or fancy, but nonetheless was a great place to stay at a reasonable price!

            10.0

            Very friendly greeting, lounge area with wi-fi, great hot spa outdoor tub, clean and comfortable king bed as requested. A little fridge and cooktop although we didn't use it.

            The hot tub area outdoors could have been cleaned a little better. Saw champagne cork from previous user on the deck as well as a few cigarette butts. Not really a big deal though.
