Chose this place from a number of motels, seemed the best value and close to the main shops. Called a day or two before our booking to upgrade to a seaview suite and the hosts were kind enough to let us upgrade with no fee. What a great decision that was. Huge amount of space for the price and a... More

We booked for two nights. We then found we couldn't make it on the original two nights and on the Wednesday before the Friday booking I tried to get the booking moved to three weeks later. Unfortunately from the motels perspective we were "cancelling" the first booking and remaking the booking so they charged us the full amount for the... More

This guest is not telling the truth.On the 19th March 2014 the guest booked accommodation for the 28th & 29th March. On Thursday, the 27th March,(not Wednesday),the guest phoned at 7.45pm and advised,with only a few hours notice, that as he and his partner had decided to celebrate his partners birthday elsewhere,he no longer required the accommodation booked.He then stated...

Booked for one night but changed to three after first night. Great accommodation right on the seafront. We had great views over to Russell and could lie in bed and watch all of the action. Studio unit was great value for money with all of the location and facilities of luxury accommodation for a very reasonable price. Staff were wonderful.... More

We had booked two units, 2 x 1 bedroom, one with a bay view, the other upstairs with no view. The front unit was smaller, but the views compensated for that, and the other unit was very roomy. Both were well equipped and clean, and the beds very comfortable, and the manager was very helpful and friendly. It was great... More

We stayed at this place for 4 nights and came away quite impressed. Our unit was spacious, very tidy and well equipped. We had taken with us our two pet dogs, having a small grass porch on the ground floor units made this motel a perfect choice for us. The motel is beautifully located, less than 5 mins from the...

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable two nights at this excellent motel. The room was well equipped with fantastic views and was really outstanding value for money. Although the weather was not the best we spent many an hour sitting looking out on the beautiful scenery. The level of service was also just right, not intrusive but help... More

Our unit was quite spacious compared to ones near by that were significantly more expensive. Property is right on water front, is centrally located, and our unit had great view over the bay. A bonus for us was the bbqs (1 per 2 units). Out host Graham was friendly and helpful in advise and booking trips.

I stayed for a night here on 10th Oct, I booked a sea view studio room and got room no 8 which had a lovely glass front so I could look around the bay. The room was very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was a good size with a sky light. There was also the use of a barbecue... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Bayview. While the room is not the newest we have seen, it was very clean, well looked after and most importantly had a good comfortable bed. The location is great with just a short walk down to eating places and a beautiful view in the morning. Our host was most obliging, pleasant and helpful.... More
