The location and outlook was great. The size of the rooms was generous. This is where the list of positives stop. No SKY TV, no breakfast, very dated décor, over priced for what you get, hardly a warm welcome received. The one piece of advice received was not good. Average - no better than this.

We stayed in one of the top sea view studio units and it was great! The room was immaculately clean and although decor a bit dated it was lovely. We had great sea views, sunshine and a little patio with heaps of pot plants, cape cod chairs and views up the estuary. The shower pressure was great and again I... More

We found this place by accident and what a gem of a coastline it's on. The motor lodge was roomy ,very clean and just across from the sand spit. Tutukaka itself was very quiet but had some good places to eat around the Marina.Would happily visit again.

We spent a night on the top floor and enjoyed the sun in the late afternoon and listened to the birds in the trees behind the property. The view of the coast was lovely and we were able to walk 5 minutes to get dinner over the little bridge. The stay was great and we will certainly be booking into... More

We stayed in one of two studio units on the third level giving views of the estuary, sand bank, sea and islands. Our unit 15 had views from the front and kitchen & table which was well used. The unit has a large bathroom for a studio unit and plenty of living space. There is a deck at the back... More

Great location in Ngunguru, close to shops, cafes and sports club with golf, tennis, bowls, bar, restaurant and sports field. Great for collecting pipi's too just out front, also a boat ramp and a great walk around the rocks to Wellingtons Bay at low tide. Loved it.

Stayed in April with my 89yo mother. Great room. One bedroom. Extra bed in sitting area. Really good kitchen. Clean and adequate bathroom. All facilities we needed. Lovely position. Easy walk around the bay. And absolutely NO problem with the hostess.
