My son and I stayed here for 2 nights on our recent trip to Northland. The location was central to everything we wanted to see and do in the area, as well as being very picturesque, easy to find and a short distance from the local shops, beaches and other facilities. Barbara and Ian are fantastic hosts, making us feel... More

This was a lovely friendly little Motel whose hosts are exceptionally helpful at booking tours, suggesting days out and restaurants in the area etc. Only four rooms mean real personal attention, nothing too much trouble. Breakfast of your choice served at the time you choose. Thoroughly recommended.

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.
