Less than an hour after we arrived at the Beach House at Bayside for our pre-booked two-night stay, my wife and I had revised our travel arrangements to ensure we could stay an extra night. Our two-level suite (No. 7) was very spacious and extremely well furnished with stacks of "extras", not the least of which was the heated towel rails. Access to the communal guest lounge with it's warming wood fire on the three August nights we stayed was also very enjoyable. But what made our stay truly memorable was the service and friendliness provided by our hosts Sally and Craig, both of whom really love their "jobs", which was obvious from everything they did, and of course was manifested in the exceptional service they provided. This included a number of offers (e.g. complimentary lift to a restaurant we were dining at in town) that one would not even dream of asking for. During our welcome, rather than boring us silly like most motel etc. owners do by extolling the virtues of everything that they enjoy doing in their immediate environs, Sally (as if by some sixth sense) quickly identified the comparative narrow fields of activities that my wife and I prefer while on holidays and quickly offered a number of suggestions, all of which were subsequently tried and found to be excellent. Both Craig and Sally are very accomplished in food preparation and the quality of their breakfasts was just another example of their commitment to go the extra yard in the service provided. We rounded out our stay on the final night with dinner, offered as an in-room service, but we readily accepted Sally's offer of having it in the dining room, where we had a pleasurable evening with the whole room just to ourselves, enjoying fine food, fine wine, and intermingled with pleasant and entertaining chats with Craig before we retired to our room for the nightly complimentary port and chocolates. Although Brisbane is a long way from Albany we're already discussing what we'll do the next time we stay at the Beach House at Bayside.
