Everything was exceptionally clean and modern. Breakfast (cooked) was very generous, hot and perfectly cooked. If we had any small gripe could be we lacked spare pillows and no tissues. Also only 2 cups, wine glasses etc.. If we had visitors from the area popping in whilst there we could've done with an extra set. Staff very friendly and the... More

I've booked a 1 bedroom spa suite because of the good review and comment on trip advisor. Regarding the fool price of $250 I really thought we were going to treat ourself with my husband. I have to say that when we were shown the room I was a little bit disappointed. It was definitively smaller than the photos looks.... More

Stayed a night in a 1 bedroom unit. Very spacious, lovely large windows in the lounge. Extremely quiet, we were on the top floor and heard no road noise at all. Bed comfortable, lovely linen. Kitchen well appointed if you want to do a meal. Approx a 10 min walk to the Mount shopping centre. This unit would be one... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Baywatch Motor Inn recently in a 1 bedroom unit. The unit was more than spacious enough to accommodate myself, my husband and our 2 toddlers. On arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to our unit. The port a cot and blankets was already waiting for us for our youngest child. The unit was... More

We were offered a weekend special, and as it was the first motel on our list, we booked immediately for that night and the next. Warm, welcoming hosts. Room, spacious, clean, warm, and only a little light break through at the top of the curtains.... Bed, not soft or hard - just right. Bathroom was well planned, complete with single... More

Was looking for accommodation for my darling and me for a one night getaway. Baywatch was only a few dollars more expensive than much older premises. Booked a studio. Very new, spacious and immaculately clean. Comfy chairs for reading. Bed was 7/10 for comfort. Great location. Best burgers just across the road at Burger Fuel. 7km loop around the Mount... More

The hotel is centrally located with an easy stroll to the main shopping and dining area in the mount. The staff and service is great, making you feel welcome and an easy check in and out process.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment with spa bath to celebrate our anniversary. The apartment is spacious and very, very clean. We love the big bathroom with spa bath and separate shower. Our apartment was quiet though it was next to the road. Very comfortable sofa to relax and watch TV in. We love... More

I only stayed one night in the Baywatch Motor Inn but would definitely recommend it. The location is super, and the rooms are a really good size. But what makes this place is the staff, they were so so helpful and incredibly friendly - there was a bug in my bathroom and I really do not like insects the night... More
