The feedback I got from all my friends was positive. They loved the self-catering units,nice and clean and well equipped. The lodge was a very good break away for all of us and we profoundly enjoyed it!

We enjoyed our stay at Blue Bay Lodge with its generous self catering facilities and lovely sea view, but this was sadly undermined when an attempt to retrieve a pair of much loved running shoes that were left behind was greeted with a "Can't help. Not our problem"

Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed your stay. I can promise you that the safety of our guests and their possessions is our number one priority. I am sorry if you felt like we did not care about your shoes that went missing. We looked in the cottage and asked the staff who worked there and the housekeeper and no one saw a pair of shoes but we will let you know if we find anything and will keep on looking for them.

I've had the pleasure of attending several workshops hosted at the Blue Bay Lodge over a period of time so I've gotten to see more than the average visitor. Most importantly, the staff are fantastic! Always willing to fetch, do, find out...the conferencing and dining facilities and some of the rooms overlook the bay. What a spectacular vista of calming blue ocean, white sandy beach and gentle lapping waves. The rooms are tasteful, compact and so comfortable I've overslept (twice). The food is basic, wholesome and plenty of it. The layout has a variety of spaces perfect for breakaway groups or just quiet time. High recommend for conferences and workshops. Better yet, it's the perfect place to calm down and breathe out...

We found the staff friendly and were upgraded to a bigger cottage upon arrival. We were pleased to have our dog with us.
The hotel's restaurant is well positioned metres from the shoreline and is an attractive dining space. The food was good.
We did not make use of other facilities as it was a short stay on the 'flower route'.

Stayed here for just one night - staff were not very friendly or welcoming, particularly in the dining room. I felt as though I was inconveniencing them buy expecting service. Food was very average, especially the breakfast. The room was comfortable but the bathroom was small and uncomfortable, with only a bath which I found strange. Lovely location but wouldn't stay there again.

Blue Water Bay Lodge is an absolutely beautiful place, with very friendly staff.
It is a place I will definitely go to again and also recommend to others, especially for families with children. Thanks
