Originally we could only get 1 night as was fully booked, however said that we ideally would like to stay 2 nights. We were contacted by Bay Vista 2 or 3 days ahead of our visit to inform us that due to a cancellation we could stay 2 nights. On arrival Kerry told us that we had been upgraded to a 5 bed room house..... For the 2 of us at no extra cost. The house was lovely with amazing views and fully furnished to a high standard. We loved our stay. Kerry could not have been more helpful in giving us advice as to where to go or to answer any questions. The only negative was that the Internet access was a little patchy, although Kerry said that it was due to be sorted the following week. All in all we had a lovely stay and will be happy to return on a future trip.

Excellent facilities and amazing views. Just so peaceful and quiet, the perfect spot to chill out after a day's walking or sight seeing.

Our hosts, Lillian and Michael, couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

It appears quite unassuming as you arrive at the Bay Vista Waterfront Motel but the instant you are greeted it's easy to fall in love with the place. The friendliest hosts I've had the chance to meet and what must be some of the best views of the sounds right outside the door. Would definitely return.

Room tip: Amazing Views, Friendly staff

This motel offers great amenities and incredible views of the Sounds. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment that had a great look out from the terrace and living area looking out over the grass down to the waterfront. Look forward to visiting again.

Great place to stay, we especially enjoyed our own space with our little one were he could run after ducks on the front lawn and not disturb others too much when indoors.

Very polite and welcoming people, that made our time in Picton relaxing.

It is always a delight to see little ones running around on the lawn with Mum and
Dad and having fun, I think with the lawn having so much space it can be shared by everyone. Thankyou for taking the time to put your lovely Review on T/A for us Slattz, very much appreciated.
