we stayed at Bayview Motel earlier this year and we thought the staff and facilities we great! The room was nice and cosy with great full kitchen facilities. We could un-wind with a relaxing spa, totally private and free of charge and then the staff dropped us into town for dinner in the courtesy coach! All of the added extras... More

This property is on the outskirts of town but they do a free drop of in the evenings if you feel like a few drinks in town. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were tidy and clean. Stunning views of the mountains!

We chose this motel for our winter visit to Cardrona skifields. It was certainly not the cheapest available, but the room with the fire looked cosy and we thought it would create a lovely atmosphere for our family holiday. We phoned the motel managers before we booked to check that there was ample heating and were assured there was. This... More

Our 2 bedroom unit was very tired, and needs serious refurbishment, though I don't know how they overcome the separate unit at the back which is only feet away and completely overlooked our windows. Not cheap ($165 a night), and not the claimed 4 star... More

The rest of the place looked... More

Bayview is a nice property on the edge of Wanaka, probably taking 15 mins to walk to the centre so difficult without a car. The decor was a little dated but it was clean, excellent views with a nice garden. The shower was very weak however the kitchen was excellently equipped. There is free DVD rental (from a fairly limited... More

Thanks for your nice feedback! :) We now offer a free courtesy coach into town daily between 4pm and 8pm to save the hassle of a taxi- enjoy as many drinks over dinner as you like! We hope that you can make it back again sometime soon More
