Unit was presented well, and as it was hot the air conditioning was great.The one thing that we missed was there is no sink in the unit.The motel is walking distance from the shops cafes and the farmer!s market.Free wifi is also provided. And a nice sundeck for that wine late afternoon.

A weekend in Matakana Village is one of those must do's! An hour or so north of Auckland (depending on the time of day you are travelling) this quaint little village has a lot on offer. The best place to stay is the Matakana Motel, tucked nicely in the village with a handy little walkway through to the shops and... More

We enjoyed our one night stay here. The motel was new or at least newly decorated with luxury bathroom, fantastic pool. Full kitchen with proper oven and full sized fridge. Air conditioning kept us cool. We had a 2 bedroom unit. One bedroom had a queen bed and the other had a queen and a single. There was also a... More

Booked Unit 4 for a family weekend away and was not disappointed. Lovely refurbished unit with comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and large screen TV. A deck outside with table and chairs for relaxing in the sun. The pool area looked great but as it is winter we were not swimming. Can't wait to go back in the summer and... More

My husband and I stayed here on a weekend away from the kids. The room had been recently refurbished and it was done to a very high standard. The room did not feel cramped at all and the bathroom was nice a big. The heat pump had been turned on before we arrived so it was nice and warm. The... More

Good clean fresh rooms. A huge bed in unit 8 for the two of us. Warm too. Now has private decking. Close to the Matakana Pub and the Saturday Market. Pity it was a wet week-end, but hey, it is winter. Will return again. Cheers.

Booked for a night as we had not been these ways before. The entrance was well posted and the driveway is long but a nice way away from the road. We had a rental truck at the time and the carparks we were assigned were rather tight but we inched in. Met the knowledgable and friendly receptionist and were treated... More

We stayed recently in unit 1. This unit was spotlessly clean, quiet and had been freshly refurbished to a very good standard. The kitchen has a new good sized fridge/freezer, wall oven and gas hob. The bathroom worked fine, with a good shower, mirror and hand basin. To be fair the beds were a little on the pingy side (you... More

Clean and tidy room, quiet location off main road. Only motel in Matakana. Nice small pool. Everything works well, fit for purpose. Some vacationers, some working people, convenient for wineries in the area.
