My husband and I paid $115 for a room here and were pleased with the value. The staff were friendly and helped us with some questions we had about Taupo. They even had a courtesy van to take us to dinner and back to the hotel so neither of us had to drive. Very clean and tidy place, very good...

This is a small motel but the people are very friendly, the room was very clean, a good size, cosy and warm. They cooked us a complimentary breakfast of perfect free range poached eggs, very impressed.

My partner and I stayed here with our toddler for 2 nights and would absolutely love to come back! The owners were absolutely lovely, a real pleasure after such a long drive for us! The breakfasts were delicious and delivered on time which was awesome. The rooms are well maintained, albeit a little cosy to have the sofa bed out...

We had a fabulous spacious apartment in this lovely motel, good location walking distance from town, but the most amazing thing was being told by our hosts that if we wanted to go to dinner in town, they would drop us off and pick us up whenever we wanted to come back! As it was raining, we accepted the lift...

Bay Court Motel is easy to find, overlooking Lake Taupo. Our welcome was very cordial. Kerry showed us to our room and made sure that we were comfortable. She and Terry are very proud of this area and gave us fantastic advice as to what to do. At their suggestion we visited the Chateau and took the chairlift up Mount...

My family (2 adults and 2 young children) recently stayed at Baycourt during the 2016 Ironman and we had a fabulous time. Our rooms were a great size, extremely clean with free wifi and the location was perfect for us to watch the ironman race right from our front door step! The owners were really lovely and engaging, they took...

Room 10. Quiet and owners (Terry & Carol) friendly and made sure you settled in ok. 1.1 km from Taupo shops and an easy walk along the foreshore of the lake to get there. The rooms was spotless and excellent reception Wi-Fi. We would stay there again as it is central to the Taupo / Rotorua area. Free Breakfast with...

An exceptional motel. Everything was big - the bed, the bathroom, the breakfast, the lounge area. Easy and safe parking. Honestly this motel is perfect for a stay at Lake Taupo. Easy drive to Rotorua. Thank you Karen and Terry for this motel - fantastic
