Thank you to Rex and Ros for our lovely stay. Our room was upgraded and we were also treated to a free continental breakfast, due to us celebrating my son's 21st birthday. Our room was clean and comfortable. The shower was great, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Good central location and a gorgeous view of the water... More

We stayed here for one night last weekend. Definitely an older motel but does the job. Shower had broken and cracked tiles to be careful of. Bed was comfortable, shower was hot and had good pressure. Our room had a split system air conditioner which did a good job keeping us warm. TV was new and had good reception. We... More

Even though I had to change my booking, this was handled extremely well. I arrived at the Motel after another unexpected change to my plans due to me wanting to attend a friend's funeral on the way down to Batemans Bay. My room was upgraded for free due to me staying 3 nights and I appreciated Carol listening to me... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. Reviews are often only written if people have negative comments. As the old story goes, if someone has a grievance they tell 20 people if they are pleased it goes unsaid. More

Don't come to this motel looking for high-end luxury, because it is a reasonably basic and old-fashioned motel. However, the owners are really friendly, the rooms are spacious and clean, and it is walking distance to central Batemans Bay. If your keep your expectations under control, you will enjoy your stay here.

Cannot recommend this motel at all. Although it is a budget motel - my wife and I paid for their best room for a special three day getaway. All might have been passable (just) if it were not for managements attitude. After the first night - we had our towels replaced with postage stamp sized coloured "rags". We approached management...

This couple booked the executive room which is a large room with views and just happens to have large white towels as an extra bonus. First day the house keepers brought to my attention that there was makeup all over our white towels, we launder ourselves. I instructed them to change to our regular royal blue towel, they did. the... More

We stopped off in Bateman's Bay en route from Melbourne to Sydney and chose this motel by pot luck. The motel is located about 12 minutes walk from the town, where there are numerous bars and restaurants, shops, banks etc. The managers, Carol and Guy, are very helpful. The rooms are large and clean and the beds comfortable. There may... More

The owners over at Bayside are lovely and accommodating. We only stayed one night and would stop there again. Brekkie was fab and served with a smile and they are always checking everything is ok. We also got a family room for the price of a double room as that was the only room they had left - lovely!
