I’d been away from the area for many years so I organised a ‘back to the bay’ so to speak. The room was above my expectations, large, roomy with good amenities. It was cold so the A/C worked really well and was a big plus.The bed was comfortable with tea, coffee, biscuits supplied.
Had a few drinks and ate in the bistro. The meals were well presented and reasonably priced. Another big plus we’re the staff. They were ALL very welcoming and friendly.
I won’t hesitate to return it was that good.

Was expecting more for what we paid. On the positive side, convenient location, a fridge freezer that worked and the nicest bathroom I've ever had in a hotel. On the negative side, the staff were invisible. We got clean towels twice in the entire stay, the bathroom was never cleaned, we found rubbish from the last guest and I would be very surprised if they vacuumed in the 6 days we were there. There is a microwave and toaster, but no plates and we had to borrow cutlery from the nearby bar. There was nothing to wash crockery with, but the dirty cups were only taken away once. Considering we were paying a premium for a public holiday stay, they should have been able to pay for a cleaner for 10 minutes a day. Might be OK for an overnight stay, but it would have been cheaper and cleaner in a caravan park cabin.

Stayed here for 2 nights for family catch up.

Check in was performed by a disinterested staff member who couldn't wait to get back to her obviously more important task - whatever that was. Booked deluxe room and, for the price, expected better accommodation. It was clean and had the advertised amenities but it was dark, light didn't work on one of the bed lamps (wasn't the bulb - it was the light itself) and hot water in shower made strange noises and was hard to adjust.

The motel was also accommodating a large number of people who were working on a public road project hence they had large trucks and work vehicles which were parked anywhere they felt like and our car door was dented by one of these people. Would have been much more sensible if the motel had put all these people together so they could damage each other's work vehicle rather than spread them throughout the motel to the detriment of the other guests.

On the plus side the women cleaning the rooms couldn't have been nicer - perhaps the reception staff should take a few tips.

There is little accommodation competition in this area and it shows at the Bay Hotel Motel in price, facilities and some staff indifference.

Room Tip: Anything away from large work vehicles

I have dined here before and have enjoyed the meals. On this occasion I enjoyed the two meals I had, except that the "Chef's Dressing" on the Pork Ribs advertised on the specials board, was overwhelmed by the vinegary taste inthe dressing. Otherwise, talking with the friends I visited they enjoyed the "menu items" that they purchased

We stayed here for a week and it was a great stay. The Hotel is very clean and the staff are super friendly. Rooms are generous and well maintained. There is a pool, BBQ area and tennis courts for family. Meals in the restaurant are extremely well priced and the service is excellent. Food selection is excellent and the food quality is superb. There is also a gaming room next door (part of the hotel) and various other areas to sit and watch the sports channels on the numerous TVs that adorn the bars. There is a great array of memorabilia on the walls within the hotel which are well worth a read. A greatly family place and a small shopping center close by for various shopping requirements. This includes a chemist, food outlets, beauty center, newsagent and doctors surgery.

Room Tip: The best rooms are at the rear of the hotel and closer to the pool.
