Great place to stay, very tidy and lovely décor, very handy to the main town and walking distance to all local restaurants and shops. We have stayed at Baywatch twice now and we love it here, they have gone out in providing everything you need, you can even make your own breakfast if you wanted to save money. The linen... More

Great room with all facilities, spotlessly clean, welcoming and accommodating hosts, easy walking distance to the shopping centre / beaches / restaurants etc. A lovely place to stay - would definitely recommend.

I've been using Baywatch Motor Inn for the last 5 months on business. I have repeatedly use this place because of the friendly service, clean rooms and i've pretty much used every room in the complex in the last 5 months. It has all the amenities required and within walking distance to the shops, resturants and beach. The owners and... More

We drove around the Mount area looking at motels and because of out side appearance and very close to main shopping we booked in. The room was well laid out with excellent furniture and fittings, and spotlessly clean. There were nice extras such as teapot, coffee plunger and dispenser bottles for body wash and hand cleaner. The bed was extremely... More

Very pleasant experience. The Inn is very close to both the beach and town center. The host was very warm and helpful. We walked into town for a dinner, Ross had recommended two places. We opted for Italian, it was delicious. Thanks Ross! (Shopping is also better than most places we have been).

the operators were unclear about the price- we were so dismayed to be charged $50 extra for our kids, ($25 each) especially since they had to sleep on a super uncomfortable fold-out - we put all the extra comforters and Doonas on the wiry mattress for them and it was still awful. Doesn't the extra-person charge relate to making an... More

Oh dear what a shocker. Dear guest we acknowledge your concerns. As you can see from previous reviews we do ensure our rooms are always fresh and clean. The rooms, bathrooms, and toilets especially are always re-checked after our cleaners are finished for the day, so seeing this comment is really extraordinary. In saying this we have just this morning... More

This was a spur of the moment booking and to be honest, being Valentine's Weekend we were not hopeful. However, we got the last room available and what a lovely surprise we got on our arrival. We thought it would be noisy being on such a busy road but no, we slept beautifully. The unit was beautifully furnished, the bathroom... More

Definitely recommended. Located on the main road, 15 min walk straight to the mount, 5 min walk across to the beach. Our apartment was spacious; bigger than our Wellington home and included everything we need - cutlery, washing machine dryer, big wardrobe, two tvs... The stand out was the customer service.

Thanks Bernie for making us welcome and comfortable at Baywatch. He was also helpful in recommending restaurants within easy walking distance. Our room was very clean and the beds comfortable for a good nights sleep. Although the place is on the main street through the restaurant and bar area of town, the Baywatch is just outside the high traffic noise... More

If you happen upon Baywatch Motel Inn then you are in for a treat meeting Bernie. Simply the nicest and most helpful hotelier I've ever encountered. More people should be like this chap. The room was very clean but sadly the bed was not the most comfortable I've slept in. The room was large but, again, sadly very, very overpriced.... More
