Bay Vista Waterfront Motel
Ranked #1 of 16 Hotels in Picton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 February 2007

We have stayed at this establishment a number of times and it never fails to please. Once again our stay here last night was exceptional. The services offered inthis motel rival and in soem cases exceed some NZ hotels!! the bathroom is decked out with beautiful towels, shower caps, toiletries etc. The bed linen is fresh and crisp. The service always friendly and helful. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and to top it all stepping out of your room onto your own front yard metres from the water. It is tranquil, relaxing and picturesque. And at only $120 per night for two fantastic value.

Reviewed 11 August 2003

There does not appear to be a lot of good motels to pick from in Picton. The Bay Vista is a small 1-story property with 2 sections (old & new). I can only recommend the newer units, which are clean & very basic. The old units are quite dated & smell of mildew. The property is located outside of town & not within walking distance. There is a nice little bay in the backyard. Very scenic drives around Picton. Try the coastal road west to Havelock, lots of great scenery.

I was not the manager at the time this reviewer visited Bay Vista Waterfront Motels, but would just like to clarify, the units are actually all the same age, but the exterior cladding is different, so I can understand how the concept of different aged units came about.
Over the last four years, all units have been completely re-decorated and equiped with the latest furnishings and fittings. We are AOL 4 star, and have qualmark applied for.
There is certainly no mildew or musty smell now.
