It's a affordable choice, close to town an shops and very kid friendly. The small playground for the kids was great, dog friendly with your own fenced back sunny courtyard, was nice to have my coffee at. My room was very tidy had everything we needed and more. The owners are very helpful, fun and friendly and even gave us... More

You will hardly find a motel with a nicer owner – and you will hardly find better value for your money. For about 75 NZ$ we had our own bathroom, kitchen and sunny backyard for breakfast. The bed was excellent and sleep quality therefore very good. We enjoyed the hot tub very much too. Our room was spacious and tidy,... More

We booked all 6 units for our group and found the units more than satisfactory. Spa pool was lovely and warm. Beds were comfortable and warm. Kitchens had plenty for our group to use. Hosts were very helpful with any queries we had. Lovely quiet location.

Stayed for 1 night with family. Friendly host and easy parking. Room was big but made a little cramped with too many beds stuffed together. I love the kitchen in the 'Bach' studio! Lovely warm sun rays flowing in from back courtyard into kitchen.. Just cosy atmosphere. Very friendly neighbors cat.. Won't forget Pepper anytime soon! Walking distance from rose... More

We stayed at Bay Beauty motel for 4 nights over Christmas and booked this accommodation as we had our small dog with us. We kept our expectations low and were not disappointed. Bay Beauty is not flash but it had everything we needed and was perfectly adequate for our 4 night stay. Good fully stocked kitchenette and loved the outdoor... More

There were flies everywhere and the pillow cases had not been changed. The kitchen and bathroom were not clean either. There were two single beds placed toe to toe so it was unavoidable playing footsie with the person in the other bed... Not comfortable. We could not connect to wifi either. The tv had many channels which was good.

We stayed at Bay Beauty for one night during our North Island tour and found it to be fine for the night. The room had everything we needed, wi-fi, full kitchen etc but the room was dated. The proprietor was very friendly and our stay here was a good one.

Great place to stay in Napier with your family. The one-bed unit was spacious, with a courtyard at the back -- there was ample space for our daughter to play. The manager provided us cartoon DVDs, which kept our daughter busy. The managers were happy to provide us advice or help us (e.g buying stuff from the supermarket, welcome fruit),... More

We found the motel room clean, towels and bedding clean and very comfy bed, good value for the price. Loved the outdoor area at the back, not something you always get with a motel unit. Very handy for the local shops and Napier town. Best of all was that the owners are 'pet friendly', hard to find .
