The Bay Motel, Half Moon Bay, provided accommodation which lived up to its online claims. The quality and cleanliness of the room, the beds and accessories eg towels, sheets, utensils, were all of a very good standard. The free service offered to and from the ferry was helpful. We would go back again. Cathie and Sandie.

We had a lovely stay at the Bay Motel. The room was great, and the owner kindly dropped us off at the wharf for the 8am ferry. The location is perfect, close by to everything you need. We would definitely return.


Great Stay.

Great motel, friendly helpful staff who went the extra mile to make our stay something to remember. Close to shops/hotel and harbour. Clean comfortable unit with a deck that had great veiws of the bush and harbour. Our unit was number 6 that was a corner unit. We would stay there again..

We had an enjoyable stay at Bay Motel. The room was clean and well-appointed, with great views from the balcony. Just a short walk to the centre of Oban, and the staff were happy to pick us up from the ferry and drop us off at the Stewart Island Flights terminal. Also offered to drop us off at the Ulva Island ferry. The only real problem would be the wifi. For a 2-day stay we were given 3 vouchers for 50MB of internet at checkin, which is barely enough to do anything. Connection was also quite slow, although that is understandable. That said, if I didn't have work to do I would have been quite happy to switch off and just enjoy the wonderful nature on Stewart Island :)

We stayed in the motel for two nights. Close to everything. What I liked most was very close to walking tracks (fuchsia walk and raroa walk) and the observation rock. We should have let the motel manager know that we were arriving early by the ferry which we did not... He kindly took our luggages and stored them so that we could be free to do things until the check in time. On the day when we were leaving, he took us down to the ferry terminal by the van, and he showed us a bin which we could leave our luggages in. We had a plenty time until the ferry departure so this local knowledge was superve! We could not access to WIFI at all as the manager warned us in advance. We could just use the data anyway. Nice sea view from the balcony and cheeky visits from wild Kaka. It was excellent.
