Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Do get a room with the lake view and the indoor jacuzzi. Really worth it in the cold weather. Room is big and the view is awesome. There's a small kitchenette and a microwave. Easy for family but I would not recommend for small children. Parking is available for free. The owners live here so its easy to check in and ask for help. The wife was accommodating however the husband is a bit scary I might say. Our light blew in the room so there was no electricity and while my husband and I was trying to figure things out, my son started crying because I was busy trying to find a light. When I went to the reception to tell of this problem, the husband told me off to control my son instead. I was a bit taken aback because my son didn't mean to cry. I do understand that there are other people staying there. It was just dark because there was no light so its normal for kids to cry. So after that, I decided to leave and go to town while they fix the problem and we couldn't wait to leave the next day as we didn't feel welcomed anymore. Its a good location but I would recommend for small children to be here.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as always. The rooms are very clean and tidy and look great after fairly recently being redone/upgraded. The staff were always friendly and very helpful which was much appreciated. This Motel is also in a great location for lake access and views

An apartment with a great view of the lake and excellent facilities, especially the spa bath which soothed our aching muscles after a long day in Tongariro National Park. A bit of a walk into town, but nearby restaurants sufficed.

Such a beautiful place! We turned up and we were blown away by the room and not to mention the amazing view! The location was perfect a 10 minute walk to restaurants and bars. The room was modern, warm, clean and really roomy. Our bed overlooked the lake with a massive spa bath also in view of the stunning lake. Shower had amazing pressure, room even came with a Nespresso machine (I love coffee so was stoked with that!) I couldn't fault a thing about Baywater Lakeveiw Motel I rate it a 10/10 stay. Definitely coming back some time soon :)

Stunning views.. lovely staff..gorgeous rooms. We have stayed at many places in Taupo and Baywater has by far been our favorite. From the moment we arrived we were kindly welcomed. We stayed in a lakefront room and the panoramic views were stunning!!!! Everything was lovely and clean and I loved the fact that we could cook food on the hobs with utensils supplied which many motels don't offer this facility. Also it was lovely and quiet in our room. Often you can hear through the walls at many places but definitely not here. We loved every moment of our stay and are organizing to come back.
