    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!

  • Couple

    Nice hottub in the room. Great bed.Enjoyed my stay

  • Older travelers

    Great location, nicely presented, great staff, great stay

  • Older travelers

    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.

  • Couple

    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.

  • Couple

    Hotel Staff were very friendly and accomodating.

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

  • Older travelers

    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.

  • Family with children

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

  • Couple

    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.

  • Older travelers

    the view was great. Room balcony overlooked the sunset

  • Couple

    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!

  • Older travelers

    good hospitality, on main road - good access

  • Group of friends

    Very good rooms, very clean and great service, very pleasant & helpful people.

  • Older travelers

    Awesome heated swimming pool and thermal hot tub

  • Older travelers

    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.
