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.

Just a word of warning. My husband and I booked and paid for a unit 5 weeks ahead and the email from the Motor Lodge stated that it was a "Studio Unit top with Seaview".

I've never stayed in a motor lodge before, and had reservations. We rented a cabin, with two bedrooms and a kitchen. It even had a couch. After a couple of weeks of traveling, it seemed like a mansion. Aside from having a bit of an odd smell, it was great. It was nice to have the extra room. One downside... More

Having booked blind our first impression when we arrived was, Oh! as the external look is very 60's. However, our unit, was immaculate, modern, with a very good king size bed and a tasteful decor. We had unit 16 which another correspondent has also stayed in and it's as good as she says, open and spacious with outside decks. Sure,... More

At first I have to say, that I can't understand the meaning of the person below, because in my opinion Sonja was very friendly and the rooms werde perfect. I will go there again this december with my friends, because I think that they also should know, how beautiful it is there. nice greatings from spain.

This motel was very nice and the hosts were friendly. The whole service at the lodge was perfect and we enjoyed our stay. Sonja and Maurice were generous and gave us good tips for sightseeing around Ngunguru. We will come back again soon! Greets from Italy!
