Only stayed here for one night but wished it was for longer. My reaction when I first walked into the apartment was WOW! The views from the balcony and every window are amazing. The apartment itself was roomy and well equiped and the bed very comfortable and the owner, Rich, very friendly. Loved the atmosphere of Mangonui and its location,... More

We stayed in Rooms 5 and 6 at the end both with breathtaking views. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Steep walk down to the shops and restaurants, the price you pay for those views but you can drive down also. Great Thai takeaway and recommend the Little Kitchen for tapas style food. Lovely historical area.

The best part of the motel was the view. Handy that you could walk right up to the door. We had Room 1. All the linen and furnishings were old. The wifi was really bad and constantly dropped in and out. The walls were not insulated and the placing of the bathroom right beside the kitchen was a bad idea.... More

Cute place with near new windows and doors and everything you need nearby. Manager was awesome and helpful. Very quiet and peaceful, several cafes down the hill along with gift shops and historical building walk your. View of the harbor and islands outstanding.

What a wonderful motel. The view from both lounge and bedroom were spectacular. The owner could not have been more helpful, as we were running late, he left the room ready to go with lovely note and milk in the fridge. Well appointed room, very comfy bed, well equiped kitchen, good sized lounge, wonderful front terrace, everything for a short... More

On arrival in Mangonui from the south I was worried as to where the signpost was taking us, I needn’t have!! The motel is situated at the top of a hill with fantastic views of the harbour. The apartment itself was very spacious with a very well equipped kitchen and big bathroom. The sitting/dining area was again very spacious with... More

I can only endorse previous reviews - the views are absolutely outstanding, especially from the upstairs unit and the motel unit itself was very well presented and modern. I only wish we could have stayed longer.

Waking up to the best views in the world is one of the best experiences of staying in this motel. Spread out before you is a 270 degree view of Doubtless Bay and Mangonui Harbour. And the day gets better because this is the perfect spot to do day trips whether north to Cape Reinga or south to Russel/Bay of... More
