We spent 3 nights here exploring the Northland region. The accommodation is Motel style units. It is clean and well equipped and the hosts are really welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was plentiful and of good quality. Cooper's beach is quite scenic but the neighbouring old whaling town of Manganui is spectacular. Pahia and Russell in the Bay of Islands are... More

This was a terrific base for touring the far north with our friends. The rooms were spotless, the bedding very nice and all amenities were provided. Breakfast was outstanding and our hosts attention to detail was very impressive. We were there New Years Eve and Ian and Barbara made us very welcome to use the BBQ and have our meal... More

Nice clean homey room, recently renovated. Ian and Barbara were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was fantastic. Bed was very comfy, sheets and blankets were so soft! Like staying at Nanna's! Would definitely recommend to anyone - one of our best nights of accommodation during our trip.

We only came here by coincidence, but it was perfect. Clean room and a very nice host. The view from the lounge where breakfast is served is fantastic. The breakfast itself offers everything you need at the morning. We can highly recommend this place.

Lovely place, clean, free wifi, towels changed daily. Free parking, breakfast included. Breakfast is served upstairs in a large dining room with the hosts fussing over you, great hospitality. Lovely hosts. The view from the dining room is stunning. Would stay there again.

We spent a couple of nights there as a base for our far north stay. tidy, clean rooms. The breakfasts were cooked to perfect. Ask for a bacon buttie. Great hosts, very friendly and welcoming. They checked to make sure we were up when we were running late for our bus. Highly recommended

We stayed 3 nights over the new year period. While not on the beach, the units overlook Doubtless Bay and it's only 2 minutes in the car to Cooper's Beach. The accommodation is comfortable and in a quiet location. We had everything we needed. The most memorable part of our stay was being welcomed by the hosts to breakfast around... More

Very kind and welcoming hosts. The room had a table and wifi for working and also a dressing table for doing hair and make-up. Breakfast was fantastic-made to order as early as needed-generous servings and with a wonderful view. A nice extra was the borrowing library in reception.
