Our first impression was not to expect much as it was a budget Motel and the cost was $99.00, The manager /owner was very helpfull , but the room was filthy, holes in the towels, mould on the bathroom ceiling ,mould on the nets, pealing paint...

Were very disappointed with this Motel. Needs a lot of TLC. Room was not clean, even pots and pans need replacing, they were not clean. Everything is very tired and grotty. Would not stay there again. Only six units so not as though they are rushed off their feet.

We went with family and friends to stay for 3 nights and it fit in well with us as we needed 3 separate units near each other. On arrival we were met by friendly hosts and the units were a good size, but tired and needed a better clean. We did however have a great time.

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.
