Bay of Islands B&B a wonderful place to stay!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Apr 2017via mobile
Bay of Islands B&B is situated outside of town and is a relaxing place to stay. The 2 main rooms are spacious, comfortable with ocean views through large windows. The home cooked breakfast was a terrific start to the day.The owners, Helen and Milton, strike a good balance between being friendly hosts and allowing space. We highly recommend Bay of Islands B&B.

Wonderful view. Town of Esperance not far away. Great location to explore the Great Ocean Drive. The owners were most helpful. The parking arrangements were the only downside and cost an excellent rating from us not much room on the premises and a very steep drive to negotiate whether your car was on the premises or down at the water front. We loved Esperance and its nearby attractions including the National Park. Not a lot of good eating places in town but Fish Face worth a visit for a quick meal

Room tip: All rooms are ocean view but the more expensive rooms are uninterupted views of the ocean

We spent two nights here in October. The location is gorgeous and the room was very comfortable and spacious with lots of extra touches. Friendly and helpful hosts and a delicious breakfast. Highly recommended.

My husband and I spent a blissful week in Esperance on honeymoon!
The Bay of Islands B&B was the perfect place for it. It was comfortable with amazing views (we had the Dolphin room) set right on the beach!!
Easy access to town, friendly proprietors with local information on things to do over a cooked breakfast every morning 😋
Could not have wished for a better stay!!!
Thanks again Helen and Milton!!

Reviewed 16 October 2016

When arriving we were wowed by the view but unfortunately there were some matters that did not make it guest friendly. The parking provided was on an extremely steep driveway making it extremely difficult to navigate to and from the room with the luggage. No assistance or alternative was offered. We were not informed that the shower may leak around the door and consequently there was a considerable flood the next morning. A request for assistance and another bathmat was not immediately forthcoming so one of the party had to use the extremely small ensuite with a flooded floor - quite dangerous. There was nowhere to hang ones towels in the bathroom nor place ones toiletries. We were informed that for the 3 days our room would not be serviced and we would not receive clean towels. There was a sign instructing us not to increase the heating temperature of the air conditioner despite the fact the room was very cold. The premium price charged for this accommodation is not matched by the level of service offered.

Room tip: Room with a view at front of house

EsperanceHellsBells, Owner at Bay of Islands B&B, responded to this reviewResponded 18 October 2016

Thank you for your feedback during your recent stay. Had you made us aware of some of these factors we could have addressed them immediately. There is an alternative option for parking which is usually discussed on arrival. The shower does not leak around the door if the door is closed. We air our towels daily including bathmats and there is provision to hang the towels in the room and in the ensuite. We are environmentally friendly and replace towels every 3 days. The recommended air-con temperature is 22oC but guests have full access to the a-c to adjust as necessary.
We regret you were disappointed with some issues in our family run bed and breakfast and will endeavour to discuss your areas of concern in full with future guests.
