We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit at the motel. It was clean and comfortable. The view is amazing. Rachel, the manager was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed going to the Jolly Rodger pub which was a short walk away.
We would stay here again if in the area.

I stayed here for two nights. The view was fabulous, down the lawn to the waterfront and the marina near by. The room was lovely. It was clean, very spacious and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom/shower was great. Kitchen had everything I needed. Lovely location and found it very quiet.

We stayed here at the end of our trip of the top of the South Island before returning home on the ferry.
Great views, coffee cart nearby and restaurant. Exactly what we needed, we will be back for sure.

I saw the great reviews so I booked and paid the fairly high price for a unit.

Immediately on arrival I thought "Oh Dear". Although the place had a great view and was very clean and has had some renovations done it still looked a bit tired.

Things like no heated towel rail, no working wifi in the living room, no bedside tables for 3 or the 4 beds are not what we would expect for the price. We stayed at a motel the following night in Nelson and it blew away this place - for $101 per night less.

Hi there, thank you for your constructive words although I am disappointed you felt you were unable to address these directly with myself as we do take these reviews quite personally and they do effect future business. If you had, I could have mentioned to you that there are a lot of exciting upgrades planned for Bay Vista including a new bathroom in the unit you stayed in, which would include a new heated towel rail. There are also new bedside cabinets on back order due to Covid 19. We are continually upgrading our complex and units but it is hard to do so in the busy periods without disturbing our peaceful environment so we do pick these times very carefully. Regarding your comment on our Wifi, this was mentioned on check in that we had been having trouble with a new aerial installed. This has now been resolved. All the best and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip.
Regards
Rachel

Saw the ad in the AA Magazine. Turned up without a booking and they couldn't have been more helpful. We stayed 2 nights, and loved it. I hope we get the chance to return, because this was by far the highlight of our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for new owner Susan.

Room tip: every room has the same view of the harbour. Amazing.
