Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Stayed here for just the one night but wished it were longer. The owners were excellent, nothing was a problem. Extremely comfortable bed. Wifi was fast. We had room 1 facing the road but the glass must be tripled layer as couldn't hear any road noise. Would stay again.

We were delighted with our stay. The cleanliness was of a very high standard. The furnishings are modern and comfortable. The host was both friendly and informative. It was a short walk to restaurants and an added bonus was the onsite parking area with designated car parks for each unit. The 'whisper glass" ensured that our room was very quiet....

Great location as easy walking distance to many cafes and cute shops in the area. We have a room on the upper floor and while there was no view as such it was a nice outlook across the street. Wide windows allow in plenty of light. Windows are double glazed so no road noise at all. Comfortable bed and good...

Great customer service! felt very welcomed. The room was very clean & very tidy! Excellent! The rooms are sound proof so no road or people noise. Enjoyed our 2 night stay. They do have a small pool but why? when you have 2 beaches just down the road. Walking distance to restaurants, shops, bars. The Mount comes alive at night...

A fantastic stay. So close to central shops, the beach, etc. The owners very friendly, helpful and pleasant. The rooms have all that you need and are comfortable. A very quiet room even though on a main road. Complimentary WiiFi fanastic. Will definitely stay again when in the area.

My husband and I spent 8 nights at this motel last month and would certainly recommend it. Unfortunately, we booked too late to get a one bedroom unit and had to stay in a studio but that was very comfortable - especially the bed and pillows and the bathroom was spacious with great water pressure. A down side was that...

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay here at Baywatch. We are sorry you found the room a little dark even with the panoramic window. We knew you would appreciate the quieter room over the busy New Year period as requested so we chose a room over looking the garden not the road. Unfortunately the...

This is a fantastic motel. Great rooms and walking distance to the town, beach and mount. The customer service from Bernie and his wife is also the best we've experienced anywhere ever after I somehow lost my car keys in the town! We are looking forward to coming back.

I highly recommend this place, clean and tidy, a comfortable bed, considerate service, and convenient car park. Mr.Bernie is nice and friendly, his face is always smile. He speaks English slowly and clearly. This is good for foreigners like us, we can easily understand everything. However, the shower room's door makes a creaking sound, maybe need to be repaired.

Many thanks for taking the time to share your experience here at Baywatch. We are really glad you enjoyed your stay here and also the attractions and activities in the Mount. Although we have reasonably new beds all with medium firmness mattresses we will check the mattress and replace if found to be overly soft.
