A clean modern place with friendly staff going out of their way to help where possible. My brother had to rush off to the airport, reception printed his boarding pass. Showers were impressive, much needed after a muddy parkrun. Slept well, what more can I say. Yes a bar fridge would have been great but sadly missing.

We stayed at the Bayshore inn for one night while doing business. It was comfortable and clean. The tv stations were abit muddled. So the tvs need to be retuned. I did not have a cooked breakfast but had some fresh fruit, juice and some cereal. It was all fine. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Improper lighting in rooms and walkways insufficiently lit. WiFi only in the lobby. Food is average to good. Courteous staff. Housekeeping is very good. Check-in if you don't have any alternate options.
