We came across this place by just driving around and looking from the outside, so it was the 3rd place we looked at. We liked the fact that it was a bit out of the town so quiet and the views from the rooms were amazing. We had a spacious room with a separate bedroom and sitting room. Ok it...

Old smelt like a chip shop were shown 3 different units all the same looks totally different on the Internet and they are using Campervan rating for the motel! So bad we found alternative accommodation for the night rather than stay!

We'd like to clarify that we most certainly do not advertise our motel under our campervan parks rating. We only advertise ratings awarded to the motel; our website, brochures and Qualmark certificate show this to be true. Also our photos are very accurate as the were only taken this summer. The original unit did have a cooking smell present and...

Unfortunately we only got to stay 1 night. The owner is amazing, meticulous and concientious. Free shuttle to town and back, free showers, free spas, free 24 hour Internet and beautiful sites. Easily the nicest place we've stayed in over 4 weeks of travel on both islands.

We stayed there 2 nights - on 31st Dec and 1st of Jan - paying 180$ per night plus 50$ bank holiday surcharge. We traveled in 3 - we got a huge lodge - able to accommodate 7 if not 8 people - there were 3 bedrooms, 2 toilets, 1 bathroom with shower, huge parlour with terrace and views overlooking...

Excellent value for 2 bedroom, self contained accommodation on the edge of Wanaka. Unit was a bit old but very comfortable and warm and cosy with a fireplace. Staff were great - very helpful and friendly. An added treat was the fire being set ready to light every evening when we returned from the snow.

Excellent value for money and the fastest free wi-fi in our whole holiday. Lots of extras including meal vouchers for the local Mexican restaurant. Staff were friendly and the outlook from our 1 bedroom unit was spectacular. Our unit appeared to have been recently refurbished which added to the comfort. Heating was sufficient with additional portable heaters stored in the...

we stayed here 3 nights over Christmas and there was everything we wanted - quite quiet, space inside and outside, TV with DVDs to borrow, spa, and best of all lots of helpful and knowledgeable advice about walks and activities - so we avoided a potentially risky walk in rain but were advised to do a different one, and did...

We were very pleased with our stay at the Bayview Motel...in fact, it was one of the best accommodations we had stayed at during our 10 day holiday on the South Island. We stayed at some luxurious/expensive accommodations during our stay and figured "what the heck let's try this one." Looks can be deceiving as we were more than happy...

The customer service was exceptional and I really enjoyed the spa pool at the end of a long day exploring. Would highly recommend this motel which is ideal for couples and families. The staff gave us a ride into town for dinner and we got a meal voucher when we booked our accommodation. Perfect setting to unwind - peaceful and...

Cant really fault the unit we stayed in, clean & tidy throughout, everything worked, reception friendly enough. But the buildings are crying out for maintenance, blistering or faded paintwork, weeds here and there, the shrubs need a serious trim, obscuring picture window views of Lake Wanaka, some footpaths are fully obscured by shrubs. But the Grounds are great, plenty of...
