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.

This is a simple NZ motel, very well located. Bathroom recently renovated. Comfortable king size bed (although the pillows were a bit skinny). We didn't try to cook anything in our studio unit. We are glad we stayed here and can recommend these motels in the centre of Matakana

We only stayed here for one night. The motel was basic but had everything we needed for one night. Considered using their barbeque but ended up cooking in the kitchen. We even went for a swim in the little pool.

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

Last week we travelled to Matakana. We had pre booked the Matakana Motel through booking.com. The process was easy. The motel was great- clean, tidy and it had a fan which was perfect for the hot weather. The staff were helpful and informative. 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
