“A little dated”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

We stayed at Bay Beauty for one night during our North Island tour and found it to be fine for the night. The room had everything we needed, wi-fi, full kitchen etc but the room was dated. The proprietor was very friendly and our stay here was a good one.

Room Tip: Try out the free spa. You don't have to book and it was a great end to the day.

Internet had very poor range but the owner said he was getting someone in to upgrade the system, so should help.

Great place to stay in Napier with your family. The one-bed unit was spacious, with a courtyard at the back -- there was ample space for our daughter to play. The manager provided us cartoon DVDs, which kept our daughter busy. The managers were happy to provide us advice or help us (e.g buying stuff from the supermarket, welcome fruit), which was much appreciated. We were able to checkout late without any extra charges. Overall a very good experience.

We found the motel room clean, towels and bedding clean and very comfy bed, good value for the price. Loved the outdoor area at the back, not something you always get with a motel unit. Very handy for the local shops and Napier town. Best of all was that the owners are 'pet friendly', hard to find .

We stayed one night with another couple thought we had two rooms but were all in one,the place was dirty not just dusty but unclean,towels grey and horrid ,sheets did not look like they have been laundered, breakfast came in the evening, the tin of peaches had 2010 on then, spoke to owner who just said sorry you felt that way, did ask him to come and look at room with me! Location was the best feature.

It may be low budget but this was exactly what we were looking for. Despite being cheaper accommodation there was plenty of amenities, the room was large and the TV was huge. The courtyard out the back of each unit was an added bonus. About the only issue was the freeview box was set to 4:3 and should be set to 16:9 to work with the widescreen tv! :) We didn't use the kids accessories but behind the motel was a trampoline and heaps of toys and stuff.

We stayed here just for one night but we really enjoyed this place! Friendly and caring staff! Kitchen facilities were really handy, we cooked our own dinner/breakfast. The studio was really clean and bed was very comfortable as well! Parking was complimentary! Really liked a little outside area with a table =)
