We stayed here for three nights, and really enjoyed the location. We had a deluxe room, with a very comfortable, very large bed, heaven! Denise the owner is super helpful, cannot praise her enough. This is in a super location, we visited KeriKeri Peninsula, and 90 mile beach and Cape Reinga (Denise arranged the trip to the cape) a brilliant... More

Nice motel with great views of Mill Bay. Right opposite the water, with all rooms leading onto the balcony which faces the view. Quiet area within walking distance of the main street of Mangonui, which has several restaurants. Nice bright studio room with good facilities including a small kitchenette. Mangonui is known for its great fish and chips, but we... More

My partner, infant son and I all stayed for 4 nights in early January. We were attending a wedding just along the road. We couldn't have had a better location to be as we were able to wander back and forth over the days to the venue. I think we had the best room in the motel, #5 with a... More

Beautiful location but underwhelmed by decor and lack of comfort. Motel barely serviced over the 4 nights we were there, apart from clean towels. As overseas guests we have experienced higher standards in cabins in caravan parks. We will not be recommending this motel at such a high cost for low standards. Free wifi for one hour per day was...

Stayed for four nights, hotel prices, motor camp service. Only one hour internet and very frustrating to use it, bathroom was not cleaned during our stay, clean towel each day that was the service we got. A passive manager who was reluctant to do anything. Our soap dispenser had fallen off the wall but it was on order we were... More

this looked great from the outside, but it was fairly run down and needed more attention paid to the cleaning of the room. the kitchen was good, but the bathroom needed a good makeover. the lady of the property was a little bossy, tellng me not to use the dryer (it was raining and she insisted it wont dry anyway)...

What a fantastic position in a beautiful part of the Far North. We arrived for our 3 night stay and the reception was very pleasant - to start. The property was located close to the township and by a small bay - with a heated pool outside our door the kids were squealing with excitement - shame the fun police... More

Clean and tidy motel. We had a top floor room with a view looking out to bay. Had a small balcony off the room. The room was spacious but stuffy even with all the windows and doors open. A tad old fashioned decor from 80s but original art. Good for family type of experience as it had a swimming pool... More

We stayed in their $90 double room offer. It was very comfortable with an en suite, but it was basic. The wifi wasn't free, but I suppose an hour will do. It is located on a lovely estuary and only ashore walk to town. I would stay again, if doing the same thing and travelling through upward north.

The room we stayed in was spacious, clean and generally comfortable - but very dated and basic. Reasonable for the price. Nowhere to eat despite having a kitchen, and noisy as a result of people walking around outside. The pool is clean and well done, but very small for a place this size - it can't accommodate more than three... More
