“Great Motel”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

My son and daughter in-law surprised us with a 1 night stay at Bays Water Inn. They booked us a family room as we had both of our grandkids with us.

The room was very good, lots of room, as the kids beds were in a separate room attached to our room.

Basic coffee and tea facilities, the staff were great nothing was a problem.
We ate dinner there the night we stayed, and I would give it 100% for service, and the meal was fantastic, I had the 300gr fillet steak, and it melted in your mouth, my husband had the lamb cutlets and said they were wonderful.

Yes I would stay there again, also the grounds are big enough for the kids to run around and kick a ball

Breakfast was the basic buffet , toast, coffee tea, cereals, etc, which was enough for us, or you can pay the extra and have a hot breakfast served

We had a very pleasant 1 night stay in May 2013. The rooms are a little old, but clean. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with a nice balcony and great views of the bay. Plenty of room for a family of four. Continental Breakfast was included which was very nice and included a good range of cereals, toast and canned fruits and coffee. Staff were very friendly and polite to our kids. Tennis court was good fun and motel has basic rackets available at no cost. I though Bay Waters was great value and will stay there again.

We had a 4 night stay at the Bay Waters Motel as part of a group of 30. The motel is very clean and tidy, our room had plenty of room and very comfortable with an amazing view. We had breakfast and diner in the dining room every day and the food was good, served with a minimum of fuss. Tasty and delicious. The staff were exceptional, very obliging and helpful and attended to our needs, with some of our elderly party needing extra assistance which was freely given.
Our rooms were cleaned every day and when we returned in the afternoon, we had fresh towels and supplies in our rooms.
The motel is a bit out dated but is set among delightful trees and has a view to the water. Plenty of linen was provided, although take your own face washers.
We would recommend this motel if you are looking for budget accommodation, where you can spend time in the evening sitting by a toasty log fire having a little drink.

We also thought like other reviewers that this hotel was a little dated. It could use a bit of a touch up here and there. The staff were fantastic and the room was clean. The staff went out of there way for us. We received a free continental breakfast, we were not expecting this so it was a welcome surprise. Located a short walk to the main CBD and supermarkets. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the river have a nice view

It's not often you stay at a hotel where they go beyond what is required! This weekend I stayed at the hotel and only booked for two days but the hotel manager allowed me to have a shower after a TRI competition before my journey... This was after the room was cleaned...

The room was out dated and could be made into something special with a bit of work! The staff are genuine and a pleasure to deal with! Can't comment on the food as everything is within walking distance and one of the best restaurants is just 500M down the road.

Overall, I'd prefer to stay in a place that has less luxury compared to service! My next visit will be at Bay Waters, they extended their hospitality and I will honour them by being a continued customer.

Thanks again for showing me, you're not just a hotel!

Booked a last minute getaway for one night and Bay Waters could not have been any better value for money. Our room was ready early, yes a little dated but you get what you pay for. Very comfy bed, crisp clean sheets / towels and plenty of hot water. Staff were very friendly and helpful but by far the highlight was the restaurant food in the evening. Me and my partner both took advantage of the steak, at $20 each you would have thought you were in a 5* hotel as it was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. For desert, go for the sticky date pudding, amazing. All in all excellent food at great value for money.
Continental breakfast, as you expect and again you're getting what you pay for, nothing special but definitely just what you need to set you up for the day.
If you're looking to escape and get away from the hustle and bustle on a budget then stay here, we'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask to face the river... Rooms 22-28 I think.

We stayed in Bay Waters Inn for one night, had a twin room (double and single bed). The room was dated but clean. The view was great and we had a nice big flat screen TV.

The staff were extremely friendly throughout.

We also decided to have a meal there and it was just delicious. They had a special where all main course are $20 (which I believe is a common occurance looking at previous reviews) we had the lemon and it was absolutly delicious.

Breakfast which was included had all the continental breakfast good you could expect and you could seat our on the terrace which was rather nice.

The town is a short wal away (across the bridge).

The swimming pool is small but still nice to have. There were a pool table and table tennis available which we did not use but again good to have especially if you have kids.

I would recommend this motel as what you get for the money is good.
