Everything was great
location - close to everything we needed staff - really friendly and helpful facilities - good sized, comfortable room
The rain was a bit inconvenient but probably beyond the control of the Bay Motel.
We had a really great stay in the Bay Motel. Charlotte could not have been more helpful & friendly. She's a great asset to a wonderful place to stay.
Being welcomed and having our packs transported to and fro our port of entry. Unit cozy and great views .
Spacious, comfortable 1 Bedroom unit, very clean, modern - everything we required. The staff (Charlotte and Pip) were friendly, helpful and efficient.
The manager and assitant manager were very helpful, friendly and pleasant. Accommodation clean and warm. Birdlife up close and interesting.
We liked everything. Pip was extremely hepful and friendly,exceeded all expectations. The apartment is the most comfortable one we have stayed in. So sorry it was only for one night.
Nothing to dislike.
Charlotte met us from the ferry and gave us a quick tour. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable.everything was great. I could not recommend it highly enough. Thanks.
Location to town and the cooperation and cheerfulness of the manager
TV not mounted on wall in front of bed.
Great location, helpful staff and very clean
Cold showers in the morning - there were too many guests for the hot water so ended up with cold shower in the mornings
Charlotte & Pip were wonderful! We had a lovely view of the water from the balcony and it was a very short walk to shops/hotel for dinner etc. The place was clean and well appointed. Such a shame about the bed though, otherwise we would have given 10/10.
The bed was the hardest and most uncomfortable we've ever encountered in many years of travelling! I ended up getting blankets to stack underneath us to soften the surface which only helped a little. It really let the place down.
Love the birds visits The view was astounding Motel was like a palace Friendly people
not knowing the hotel only had dinner to 8.0pm but the bar meal was good
Beautiful Stewart Island Lovely view of harbor from room Kiwis, both avian and human (esp. Charlotte who was a wonderful host)
We couldn't stay longer
The kakas coming to the balcony and hand feeding them fruit
Warm, friendly welcome and pick up from travel depot, and return likewise. Great location for views and to town. Well appointed unit in all aspects with attention to little details.
Too insignificant to remember.
Warm room spa bath great view clean good hospitality
Small things. Need better crockery eg small cups, sugar sweetener, toilet spray.
Charlotte who was very helpful.
Thought it was a bit expensive.
Very nice and helpful staff. Great service. Spacious rooms and bathrooms. Great views over Halfmoon Bay, facing the sunrise over the sea. Very convenient for all Halfmoon Bay amenities.
Drawer/closet space for clothes is scarce. Lights for entry/kitchen area and for sleeping area are not independently controlled, so it´s either lights on or lights off for entire unit.
Everything! Central heating - what a treat. The view over the bay. The kaka on the balcony. Lovely room with good facilities. We would definitely go back.
There was nothing we did not like.
Facilities were great and staff were more than that. We were met at the wharf which was unexpected and given a short info drive around town. Brilliant idea - thank you
Friendly Staff, Charlotte made us feel very welcome. Comfortable and Warm. Awesome Shower. no complaints here, will recommend, thank you
Very comfortable, very well located in the town, good view, spacious, very clean and well presented. Used the laundry which met the need coming off a muddy tramp. Very good sound-proofing between units. Ticked all the boxes - particularly the very helpful staff!
Nothing adverse to comment on.
View was great; Kakas were friendly.
BBQ was a potential death trap; in a very dangerous state. Told manager to scrap it immediately.
The manager was very good nothing too much trouble.
