Unfortunately due to time constraints we could only stay one night. We got one of the top cabins and enjoyed a lovely ocean view. The cabin was very clean and well equipped. Slept well even if the bed was a bit softer than I'm used to. The owners were very generous and allowed us to park our car on the...

Our cabin had a pleasant view towards the distant sea and it was clean and tidy. However, the decor was garish and the furniture needed replacing: the chairs were faded and there was no bedside table on one side of the bed. We felt it was not good value for money compared to other places we stayed plus the Wi-Fi...

Spent 3 nights at Bay Cabinz in a chalet with a sea view. It was so nice to be able to sit on the balcony and relax with a drink after the day's activities. In fact we opted to self cater because we knew we could guarantee a window seat! A good location being just a short walk to the...

Thank goodness we had the ground floor Cabin. The stairs to the other cabin were steep and would not be easy for anyone who has difficulty with stairs. We had what was called a wheel chair unit but apart from the bathroom this unit would not be easy for some one in a wheel chair. There was very little room...

Spent a cosy night in this eco friendly unit. We were made very welcome and even had my case taken to the unit, relaxed and comfortable night. Very close to the central district and had a lovely Chinese Smorgasboard

We received a very friendly welcome and were shown our cabin. It looks a lot bigger in the photos, but the cabin was quite small and not good value for the $145-165 per night paid. It was clean and tidy, with a great bbq nearby but in the whole week we were there only the towels got replaced and even...

We stayed in one of the cottages for three nights in January 2015. We were satisfied in any relevant respect: The cleanlyness was irrepraochable, the beds good and the service fine. Moreover the location was very good, close to becvh and harbour and very quiet.

We stayed for 4 nights in Feb. Great room, really quiet and private with a well stocked kitchenette and comfortable bed. It was very close to everything, so handy to leave the car and walk to everything - amazing view too. Really good value for money. The owners were lovely and really helpful too.

The cabins were clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is a short walk from the center of town - this is a huge advantage because the town can get noisy and it's very quiet and peaceful at this hotel. We had a view of the water - lovely.

Thank Lisa S
