This was the best motel we stayed at during our two week trip to New Zealand. The owners were friendly and we loved the visits from their dog Jack. To sit outside our unit and enjoy the view of the beach across the road was heavenly. The unit was spotless with a very modern bathroom. We will gladly recommend it... More

My husband and I had a delightful stay. The complex is a credit to the owners, nothing was too much trouble. Even when there was a problem with the TV they persevered for over an hour and solved the problem, exceptional service.Bonus to our stay was seeing the Black Caps beating South Africa in the Cricket World Cup semi final....

Located right across the road from the beach, and just a minute drive/ easy flat walk to town centre, this is a great place to stay. Our one bedroom unit was immaculate and modern, apparently renovated only a year ago. Full kitchen facilities in our room and sparkling clean bathroom. A super comfortable bed helped make a good nights sleep.... More

My fiance and I stayed at Baileys for a relaxing weekend away. Very clean room with more than adequate facilities including full oven and stop top, full size fridge and a dish washer. Very modern accommodation with excellent view from both in the room and on the balcony. The managers were friendly and welcoming without being over the top. The... More

Although initial impressions were favourable, the unit being clean and tidy, the bedroom lacked any ventilation and was very hot owing to the afternoon sun shining straight into the room. This would have been uncomfortable but tolerable had a mouse not made it into the unit and onto my son's bed. A second time it actually ran up his leg.... More

In spite of the fact that we had booked with the hotel in October, when we showed up on Jan 1st we were informed that, although they had our reservation, they had given our room away by "accident" and that they "were't sure what happened" - Given it was a peak time we spent a considerable amount of money checking...

Thank you for your feedback, I acknowledge the mistake was ours, it was a genuine error made within our booking system. We apologized at the time profusely and organized alternative accommodation for you at a favorable rate. With regard to the 'no show fee' charged - I know that an automatic e-mail was generated to you stating you would be... More

We had the most fantastic stay here, great location right across from the beach! The nice Lady and her Fiancee were more than helpful providing us with local maps and 'hot spots' to visit. The room was very clean and facilities we could not fault. We had such a great night we decided to stay for two! Thank you very... More

Baileys is a simple place with a great view in a great location on the Coromandel peninsula. The new owners are terrific, couldn't be nicer & will go way outof their way to ensure you have a good experience--from bringing up breakfast, doing your laundry to drying your shoes after a hike through a river.

While premises are lovely and new the Owner (not management) was not helpful at all when giving out kayaks. One life jacket was inadequate and told to put petite 4 yr old child into the adult jacket and pull it tight, as father didn't need one. Shocking!!

Hi There, We have reviewed our bookings from last year (as we only re-opened after Christmas) and cannot see any record of guests having stayed that fit your description. We are keen to get to the bottom of this, please get in touch so we can address this as it is definitely not our policy to ignore safety requirements. Regards,... More
