I've been staying at the Bayside for the last 8 weeks due to work, and I have to say I am very impressed with their level of service and easy-natured communication with customers.
I wanted somewhere comfortable and quiet and had tried a few places around town without success. I was easily able to negotiate with Guy, the manager, for an upgrade to my accommodation due to the long-term requirements of work in the region. Guy placed me in the "Del Costa" premium section of the motel for the same rate as a normal room, and I've been part of the furniture ever since.
If these rooms were noisey or dark, or in any way uncomfortable I wouldn't have stayed here for so long. There's nothing worse than a lot of noise at night, and in the period I've been here I've slept like a baby every night.
In contrast to the previous poster's review, the "Del Costa" rooms are very open, bright and airy, with large windows at the front out on to the balcony.
Having lockable windows is a great feature, as on those hot nights the windows can be locked open at your choice because there are keys for the windows on the supplied room keychain. I would question the common sense of any person who wasn't able to realise this; the windows can be easily unlocked and closed.
The microwaves in these rooms are an asset for a person like myself. I can save a lot of money reheating frozen meals brought from home or leftovers from the local indian restaurant.
More importantly, the rooms are always kept very clean and the level service is excellent.
A big thanks to Guy, Dave and Carol for keeping me so comfortable while I have to be away from my family.
