We stayed in Unit 1 -- a good spacious unit first-floor unit overlooking the seafront, and with excellent views across to Russell. The unit was clean, comfortable and well-equipped, especially the kitchen. The toilet/shower-room was fairly small but entirely functional.
This motel is in an excellent location only a minute from the wharf and ferry / boat trip services and is also an easy walking distance from the main beach, restaurants, etc.
We were warmly welcomed by Graham the owner, who also provided helpful advice re restaurants both in Paihia and Russell.
We had good Internet access but had a slight problem with reception on SKY channels of the TV.
This was our 3rd visit to Bayview Motel and we would recommend it -- especially the sea view units.
