We stayed three nights at the Baycrest as part of a two week holiday in New Zealand. This was, in so many ways, the highlight of our trip. We had a tough time deciding whether to take the ground floor suite with hot tub or upstairs with spa and view of the lake and Mount Ruapehu. We opted for the ground floor/ hot tub and we were happy with our choice, also no carrying suitcases up and down stairs was a bonus. There is also a fully equipped bar and thermal-heated pool on the property, and in the rooms no small detail has been spared: with everything from a plunger and fresh coffee sachets, to a comfortable couch and flat screen TV, a fantastic free internet connection and Neville, our host, could not have been more helpful with advice about where to eat, what to see and do. We recommend Baycrest for couples, families and groups as it really does do it all.
