Excellent location and lovely lake views. The swimming heated and looks like it's set in nature! Even pool... noodles etc for kids. Just divine. Quiet and definitely a bit of luxury. Attention to detail, example - luxury bath salts for the tub. Just has the x factor that made it feel a pleasure to hang out in our spacious room and enjoy the lovely sheltered balcony deck while admiring the more

A hidden gem! The ground floor rooms are a must for their private natural spa pools. There is also a shared heated... pool. If you come here you won't need to go to the "proper" pools. The room was beautifully furnished, including a smart TV, as more

Booked on and get a discount. Great value for price. We just had a short stay and could not really enjoy... the stay enough. Comfortable bed, great floor heating, great lighting, great air ventilation, spacious room, clean. As we don’t favour the private mini hot pool, we opted for the lake view at level two. Will return again. One of the best holiday motel ever more

Excellent place to stay ... we had two adjoining suites upstairs, with a balcony and stunning lake views. Beds were SO... spacious and every room had an enormous smart TV. The spa bath and luxury products in the bathroom were a real bonus. We were very impressed to receive a text just before our arrival with lots of info including a self check-in that was easy. We have stayed many times, and will be back again! Thank more

A great place to stay in Taupo. Wonderful facilities; huge bed and a gorgeous walk along the lake front into town,... which takes around 30 minutes (or a short Uber ride). Great to have the natural hot pool which you can fill up as required and the constantly hot small swimming pool (although we didn't make use of it this time). Jody and Barry are wonderful hosts. Thanks - we'll be more

Very nice lodge, with comfortable well equipped room. We had a hot tub on the deck (shame that the view on the lake was... blicked by the fence, but on the other hand I appreciated the privacy while soaking in my spa 😅).The place also has a very nice shared lounge hot pool.Definitely a place I'd be happy to stay at again in the future!read more

Barry and Jody were amazing hosts. The passion for the Lodge could clearly be seen in the tidiness and thoughtfulness... of the rooms. They thought of everything to add in the room from towels and soaps al the way down to the cute milk bottle in the fridge. We always knew Taupo was beautiful, but never experienced it in a lap of luxury. Baycrest Lodge will be the beacon of our future visits to more

We booked Baycrest Lodge for our work conference and we had an absolutely marvellous time. Barry and Jody were our... hosts, and a more obliging couple would be hard to find. The accommodation was absolutely fantastic. We are a small team and families were included, some with children ranging in age from four to seventeen. Everyone was catered for amazingly well. All the suites and family rooms were exceptionally well-appointed and spotlessly clean. During our stay, the rooms were serviced consistently to the highest standard. The pool is gorgeous and so warm, it is attractive even on the chilliest autumn morning. Thank you guys, we're now back at work but the team can't enthuse enough about how much they enjoyed their time in Taupo - and much of that is down to the warm welcome and tremendous facilities that you more

When we arrived the room was exceptionally clean and welcoming. We could see the lake as soon as we opened the front... door. The view is amazing! Even better, the beds are the best we have slept in. Have just woken from a solid 11 hours sleep and lying here with the doors open and a cup of tea, which prompted this review. Amazing! Won’t stay anywhere else from now on 😁😁read more

Happy Gwen was as beautiful as the mountains and the sky, and Niir stroked her naked body as mothers stroke babies. And I lay on top - and cried from the bliss that flooded me, from jealousy and joy for Gwen. I knew it would be so. The sun was setting behind the humped bulk of Eriri, dyeing the entire valley the color of Gwen's hair as she sat on the edge of the gorge with.

Review Baycrest Lodge Hotel

Then you ran to some nipple, and I started to fuck in the literal sense of the word, a guy with a long dick. He fucked so broadly that it seemed to enter the uterus, I almost wet myself there, and then you drove him away, and he began to fry. I was so excited, it seemed to me that it was real. And I wanted you with all my holes, revealing your ass.

Now discussing:

Start asking for a potty faster. We add such a large triangle. - Too thin, - Masha noticed, - it won't absorb much. - For educational purposes, it will do, - Lena smiled, - We don't have a gauze factory here. We put the diaper on top of the diapers.
