Right in the center of a nice village with great shops and restaurants and a funky cinema. Super clean, back off the main road far enough to be quiet, and with a very nice pool. We had a two story two bedroom suite with a nice little back deck. Numerous places to eat, drink and shop within a 5 minute... More

I've stayed here a few times over the years. This time, the motel has been refurbished and is excellent now. There's a sizeable, new outdoor pool,which was a pleasant surprise and the rooms have been stylishly renovated . The Wifi reaches the rooms effectively now. It is a few moments walk to the centre of the village and you can't... More

The pool was clean with comfortable seats to sit on for non swimmers.The best part was the... More

Overall this property is very good but if you intend on cooking, it just doesn't cut it. The studios have microwave and toaster with a bowl smaller than the largest plate to try and wash dishes in. The bathrooms, although big don't have enough hanging spots for towels and clothes. There are hairdriers which are kept at the office so... More

First let me say that this motel is really handy (short-cut through the back) to the centre of Matakana village, and Matakana village has excellent facilites. Food, cinemas and shopping. It is a great little spot, very handy to Sandspit and Leigh and Snells Beach. We stayed twice at the motel in the studio rooms. These are good spacious rooms.... More

I have stayed in both the studio and the 2 bedroom units. They were both great options depending on how many of you there are. The enormous bed in the studio was extremely comfy and the recent renovations to these rooms are of a very high quality. The new addition of a heated pool and bbq area mean families don't... More

We had a queen studio - it was modern, spotless, lovely new bathroom, very comfortable, and quiet but handy location. Although we were well away from the road, we were able to walk straight through the back gate to the Matakana pub, and of course the rest of the village shopping was right there. They even offered a deal for... More

We had a two bedroom unit which was very spacious over two floors. Perfect as we had my baby niece with us. The unit was well equipped (esp the kitchen which was great), and we had a nice back balcony overlooking a paddock (lovely sun trap). The bedrooms especially are a little on the basic side, however, it was fit... More
