      We loved the stunning view of the lake and snow capped mountains beyond. The room was very comfortable and location was great.

      The view ie across the road to beach/lake - plus location ie access to outdoor activities, shops, restaurants.

      Spa in living area - plus towels worn. Also, noise from plumbing and heat pumps a bit much at times.

      Beautiful setting and a spa in my bedroom!

      It ticked all the boxes for what we needed for our one night stay

      Staff was very nice . She greeted us really well. Room was tidy.

      We stayed in the family suite which wasnt big enough for 4 adults. Beds were a bit cramped in the spare room. There wasnt much space to move around. However the double bed area was nice. We found hair in one of the beds so it seems like care wasnt taken while cleaning the room.

      There was no hot water. We were told we could check out without being charged. We checked out but were still charged. When we tried to contact management they hung up on us.

      Lovely outlook over the lake to the mountains.

      Scaffolding encroached on the parking space a bit, but that is only for a short time hopefully.

      After 36 holes of golf the spa bath over looking the lake was a real treat. Comfy bed and clean showers are all we are really looking for in a motel and we get it here.

      Parking can be a little tight, but its the nature of smaller properties, that said we've always had a park.

      The staff that we enountered were friendly and accommodating. View of the lake was lovely. Was an overall fine experience.

      We booked Baywater Motor Inn only because it offered a heated pool and on arrival we found out the pool was not working. After asking for a reduced rate they offered us a free entry into the hot springs which was nice but dissapointing as we had discussed staying there. The decor in our room was very dated and a bit dingy but we see they are renovating so the photos on the web site are obviously of refurbished rooms which i thin is a bit misleading to people booking.

      The view was great and the spa bath was lovely.

      We were disappointed we were not forewarned about the fact the building is currently being renovated and the fact the pool was out of action due to maintenance.

      Friendly and helpful staff/owners. Motel is very close to main centre. Lake was across the road perfect for a romantic walk and watch the sunset.

      The bed was a little uncomfortable but everything else made up for it.

      Great friendly staff made us feel very welcome and were happy to help when they could. My son loved the Spa bath in our room, we had a great view of the lake and the motel was close to town. I would go back anytime :)
