        A great place to stay. The owners are so friendly and helpful. We had a fabulous welcome when we arrived on the island. Nothing is a problem for them. They organised a trip to neighbouring Ulva for us, taking us to the boat and collecting us when we came back. The accommodation is perfect - very roomy and with all that you need for your stay. I would definitely recommend this motel to anyone who values good service.

        Location, clean and comfortable
        We stayed 3 nights to do some bird watching. Hotel staff are very accommodating and dropped us off at the pier to board the boats, as well as picked and dropped us off for the ferry to Oban. It is only a short walk to the shops and food. The room is equipped with a stove, microwave etc ... quite adequate to prepare simple meals. We were in room 7 - not quite a sea view, but very pleasant looking out at treetop level. And you can still see the sea from the shared verandah. The shared verandah does mean that you would need to draw the curtains during busy periods.

        Robin the manager, the location, the birds
        Great we had a wonderful time, we visited Ulva Island having been transported there by water taxi. Ulva Island is a must do if you go to Stewart Island. We walked all the tracks and spotted most of the birds, they were a little shy the day we went over, the weather was overcast and a little gloomy.

        Great location, large room, large bathroom and excellent compact kitchen area.
        I really enjoyed my stay here. The manager did his best to ensure that everything was in order, although he was clearly under a fair bit of pressure, time-wise. The situation was good. Only five minutes walk from most areas of the village. Great food in the local hotel, and lots of lovely walks from the hotel.

        The view, the clean and spacious room and comfortable bed, and useful tips for sightseeing and meals.
        We had a very enjoyable stay at the Bay Motel and wish we had planned to stay on Stewart Island longer than the two nights we had. It was a comfortable base at a reasonable price and we really enjoyed visits from the kaka on our balcony. Breakfast was supplied to our room which was useful but it was rather basic.

        The staff of the Bay Motel picked us up at the boat and gave us a lot of information about the small village( showed us around on the way back to the motel). The rooms are spacious and many have a view of the bay. The keas ( parrots) will come and eat nuts from your hand on the balcony - lots of fun! The motel will arrange tours, take your luggage back to the peer and are generally helpful. I would highly recommend the Bay Motel!

        Well appointed hotel in Oban township. You will be met at the ferry port and taken on a tour of the town. Rooms large but oddly have frosted glass meaning the light floods in in the morning.

        well appointed suite, comy well heated great verandah, good position, fantastic host
        MY dad (in his 80s), my sister and myself (in our early 50s)stayed the night at the Bay hotel on Stewart Island and wish it could have been a week! The 2 bedroom suite was large, comfy well appointed and clean and well maintained.The verandah was great to feed the birds (but was not a seaview room as advertised in our booking) The host picked us up at the ferry and took us on a tour of Oban before taking us to the hotel. He pointed out all the important [laces and things we needed to know. He also took us back to the ferry when we left. He even provided us with torches for walking back to the motel in the dark and my dad with a walking stick to ensure he did not fall on the steep hills. I would thoroughly recmend both Stewart Island and the Bay Hotel if you want a relaxing and comfy few days break.
