The overall appearance of the Hotel/motel is a bit run down. We stayed in one of the newer Delux Q rooms, which happen to be the furthest from the pub. We weren't trouble by any noise. The room was quite clean & comfortable. The bed & sofa both good. Nothing really attractive about the whole place but it was pretty... More

Stayed 1 night whilst attending a family function. Room met our needs. Only issue was the amount of light from outside that spilled into the room at night. Good for the small child who doesn't like the dark, terrible for the adults. Fridge also wasn't turned on when we got in the room and had a tray of water in... More

This is a local restaurant in the hotel-motel. As well as the restaurant there are bistro style meals. The food is good & so is the service. It is on the Morisset Peninsular so if you are in the area, give them a try. The decor is interesting local history & the staff are friendly & pleasant

Stayed the night at this motel. It's attached to a hotel. A bit noisy. Good very good at the restaurant. While I could see that the room we stayed in was newly renovated there was so weirdness. What was I and my fellow traveller supposed to do with 4 cakes of soap and one face washer? No other toiletries provided... More

Ordered a variety of meals reasonably prices and good size meal, delivery to table. Drinks reasonable prices. Heaps of parking. Not a bad atmosphere for a local pub, some areas need a renovation, would go back.

I went here for lunch with my family and our food was really great. Decent sizes and perfectly cooked. Prices are good with great specials too. Although we were given a buzzer when we ordered our food was brought to the table and the waitress was friendly.

Booked this place for a 3 day work trip not sure what to expect. I was very surprised at this property, the rooms were very clean and spacious. It had a kettle, toaster, bar fridge, hair dryer, iron.

The motel is adjacent to the Bay Hotel and noise from live bands easily invades the room. The room we stayed in was cleaned daily but the shower head water pressure was abysmal and the vanity sink was cracked significantly. The air conditioning unit functioned OK despite it probably being previously installed in the Ark, hence it was very noisy.

We have been having one of our annual holidays on Lake Macquarie for the past 6 years. We never miss heading to Bay Hotel restaurant for a meal. Monday rump special $12, Tuesday chicken Scnitzel special $12 and Wed is pizza. Can't beat the value. They have an awesome collection of memorabilia inside and a kids playground outside.
