I was amazed at the location of the motel I saw on the internet and cancelled my other booking, glad I did. The accommodation was good, the sea views and surrounds, awesome. A truly beautiful, peaceful, quiet little place to relax and unwind. Kerry was a warm and wonderful host, made us feel very welcome. She was very helpful in... More

We stayed here for one night at the start and one night at the end of our three week tour. We have stayed here on at least five previous occasions because the location of the motel units is second to none with immediate uninterrupted views across the bay and the units themselves are clean, well furnished with a good kitchen...

Stayed at the Bay Vista Waterfront Motel for 8 nights during March 2015 with my mother (mobility issues) and 9yo son. The accommodation was well appointed, spotlessly clean, very private and easily and comfortably accommodated us all! The staff were absolutely wonderful and accommodating - even took down and folded our washing when we had been out all day! Nothing... More

after a long, long drive we arrived in Picton and did not expect more than an "ordinary" motel ... but were surprised: wonderful, friendly attention and welcome by Kerry - excellent rooms/ appartment - and truly waterfront - simply the best. I liked it so much that I forgot a jacket in the room - which I did not notice... More

great view, very obliging hosts, tidy, clean and well appointed unit. Stayed here fir a wedding and thought it was just the business. Kerry was great - couldn't have been more helpful. Lovely spot. View out over Waikawa Bay is literally at your front door.

The best motel experience we have had! We were in a comfortable spotless spacious 2 bedroom apartment. The decor was very tasteful, and the beds were comfortable. The units are truly waterfront, with only a lawn between the water's edge and our patio with loungers and outdoor table and chairs. The motel is ideally located in a quiet area with... More

Just five minutes drive out of downtown Picton, the Bay Vista is a great spot to appreciate the beauty of Marlborough Sound. You could not get better views. The units are quite spacious and light looking out across a small stretch of lawn to the waterways and the mountains beyond. There was everything you would need to self-cater, but there... More
