This was the second best accomodation we had during our trip. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The ocean view is visible from everywhere in the room. I kicked back nearly every afternoon in the hottub watching the tv and enjoying the views. Sunset was my favourite time of the day it's just indescribable. Definately a lovely place to... More

Its the little things that count that make the property special and the lack of a fan in the bathroom to eliminate steam and no tissues were surprising for a property of this standard. On the positive side the room was lovely with good views of the lake, very clean and tidy and well presented. The spa functioned well even... More

What's not to like! The room had everything you could ask for. A wonderful, wonderful view from the balcony. Sure there was road noise but you would expect that given the location. We took ear plugs and had no issue at night. There is a mini kitchenette, fully stocked dining items and a nice new fit out. The only downside,... More

We sat on our terrace sipping red wine and watching IMNZ competitors run their marathon - what a treat. This place is an easy walk to town, handy for a dip in the lake, has good water and mountain views and is administered by very friendly managers. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to soak in the luxurious looking... More

The motel was very clean and modern and we had a massive spa bath in our room. the managers were friendly and helpful and I... More

Bedroom and lounge into one including jacozi. Jocozi not in working order. location is great. Lake view is too good. Specially the distance to lake is just a few steps. One can enjoy the beautiful views from balcony of the rooms as well

Thank you Husaini for your review. We are always looking to see what we can do better and your comments help in this way. We have replaced the switch on the Spa Bath as it was sticking and at times did make it hard to turn on. Again appreciate your feedback and thank you for staying at Baywater Lakeview Motel. More

We stayed at the Baywater Lakeview Motel in December 2013 over the new years period for a couple of nights. Our check-in was prompt and trouble free, and once completed we were shown to our room and had the general facilities explained. The Baywater Lakeview Motel is located right on the lake front so a short stroll and you are... More
