exceptional good customer service and beautiful view motel Nov 28, 2010
The host of Bay Motel (forgot his name) picked us up by the ferry terminal – What a nice surprise! We never had this arranged and we were very surprise to see our name on the card board! We were like: how did he know we take this ferry ? there were 3 times a day from Bluff to Steward Island! He must have been just wait for us for all the arrival? Wow, that was so sweet!

He took us in his van and kind of showed us where everything was. We were really appreciated for his personal service.

He dropped us off right in front of the check in office. Although the motel is not far from the ferry terminal, we could have just walked there – barely 5 minutes!

The lady at the check in was a nice woman which is also his wife. She helped us to book the cruise to Patteson Inlet and the around- the –town bus tour; which was suggested by her husband. Man, these people were just too nice!

The self contained unit we had, have a sea view! We can even view it from our bed! We had a full kitchen, a dining area and a living area. Although the TV was a little small but who cares! We hardly had the TV on!, who would watch TV when you are in Steward Island! The sound of the singing birds and the sound of the wave were our entertainment!

The king size bed was comfortable and the bed room was clean.

Although it was not a big bathroom, only the walk in shower, but it was clean and the amenities were more then enough for us.

Bay Motel was one of the nice one on that island and the rate was not expensive at all! We will definitely go back to this motel if we even visit Steward Island again!
