I have now stayed at 388 on Tay on two occasions and even though there was almost 12 months between the trips, I was welcomed as warmly as a frequent guest. The rooms are clean, spacious and my unit had a very well equipped kitchenette. The bedroom was very dark and quiet so perfect for a good night's sleep. A... More

We stayed 4 nights at 388 on Tay. This is a very comfortable motel - we had a two bedroom unit. Dianna was very pleasant and friendly to deal with. The unit was super clean and very spacious. Thank you so much - We would love to stay again. (Sorry for the delay in reviewing)

The one-bedroom was also big and comfortable with an excellent, well-stocked kitchen and a huge bathroom. Everything was sparkling clean, smart and new. We were so impressed. Easily one of the...

Spacious and well laid out facilities with a separate bedroom and en suite bathroom. Extremely comfortable although a fair walk to the nearest decent restaurant. We only stayed one night en route to Stewart Island.

The host was a real pleasure. The motel was in a good location and very well maintained and clean. Would recommend this motel in a heartbeat. Nothing was too much trouble. Excellent washing facilities if you are there for a few days as we were.

A lovely clean and spacious studio room. The kitchenette was well equipped with fridge, microwave, 2 ring hotplates. A large wet room suitable for disabled with wc at a reasonable height with hand rail plus large shower with seating. Plenty of space for parking. Only negative was dull grey decor.

I have stayed here many times over the last 8 years and have always had the most wonderful welcome. The rooms are always clean and tidy, spacious and very well layed out. Every stay has been lovely and quiet. I can't rate this motel highly enough! We will be return visitors many times over.

Stayed three nights at this motel, check in was efficient and friendly. First impression is a very well maintained complex which when we entered our room we weren't disappointed, the room was spotless. Being a one bedroom unit having a separate lounge to stretch out in was great, the kitchenette looked to have had the appliances replaced as they all... More
