Bay Motel Stewart Island, Oban
We recently spent two nights at the Bay Motel. Room was very nice. Owners are fantastic. Very committed to the upkeep of the motel and the comfort of their clients.

THE place to stay on Stewart Island.
One of the best stays we have had in NZ. Jeff met us at the boat. We booked a town tour and Ulva Island water taxi with Rhonda. They provided us transport to and from the Ulva Island Tour. Very friendly and most helpful. Our room was very comfortable. Kitchen had two burners, microwave, etc. The only room available when I booked was the two bedroom. We peeked in the windows (before the guests arrived) of the other rooms and they looked equally nice. It is up a hill from the small town area but it is a short hill. Great views from the decks. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Stewart Island - Nov 2015
Very nice visit with a midnight hike to spot the rare kiwi bird in the wild. We also went to the Ulva sanctuary. All this was set up by the hotel upon our arrival and the manager Pip also picked us up at the ferry.
