“Comfortable, clean and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2011

We are a family of 4 and this was our 2nd stay at Bay Crest Motor Lodge. We return to this motel because we can rely on the high standard of accomodation we'll recieve. The rooms are spotlessly clean, well equipped and have good sized bathrooms. The beds are very comfortable with quality bed linen. The host couldn't be more helpful, friendly and welcoming. The motel is just a short walk to Tahunani's beautiful beach. Eateries are also a stroll away. Nelson City centre is a pleasant short drive away. I would highly recommend a stay at Bay Crest Motor Lodge whilst visiting Nelson.

We had an excellent studio unit on the first floor for a two day stay. Very clean and lovely friendly service. Very close to lovely Nelson golf course and the airport. Slight downside is it can be very close to the fight path.

Had a lovely few days at the Bay Crest in Sunny Nelson. My room was modern and really clean, the service was excellent. The room was sunny and warm, the heating had been turned on in preparation for my stay. The owners are very friendly and helpful, they sent my phone charger back to me when I left it in the room. The lodge is close to the beach, lovely walks, parks and several eating places. A great place to stay!

Had a lovely stay at the Bay Crest Motor Lodge. The owners are very kind, exceedingly helpful and make you feel very welcome! The room was spotless, comfortable and had modern interior. Very close to the beach and not far outside the city. Overall a great stay at a great place owned by great people!
Definitely on my return list!

Handy to the airport but some way out of town. Don't let that put you off. Motel people usually hand you the key and point you in the direction of a cheerless, dimly lit room. Silvia showed us to our room. It was spotlessly clean, freshly and tastefully decorated. Each day it was serviced as if we were new occupants. Silvia and Anton have a real pride in their place. We would unreservedly recommend this place to stay for a few days or longer. Full marks to them from a hotelier.

We were very disappointed when we arrived at Baycrest as it is located on a very ordinary and very busy road , no sign of the beach which we discovered is accessed across the road and through a very large camp site. But the worst thing was being directly under the flight path of the busy local airport, obviously no mention of this in their advert and NOT what you want on holiday, at times it sounded like the aircraft could be landing on the roof of the motel! Our hostess was very friendly and helpful , her husband not.

  • Liked — clean room and large bathroom
  • Disliked — proximity to very noisy airport

lovely hosts made us very welcome after our long journey and late arrival. i loved this place so much that we are going back soon. the studio was clean,spacious and modern. hob,microwave and cheap internet. downside is that all motels in this road(which there are alot) are on the flight path so at 8am a small airplane will go overhead however this is the best alarm clock ever! close to beach and 5 min drive(if that) to city.

  • Liked — everything!! including the chocolates
  • Disliked — leaving!! this was the best motor lodge we stayed in
