Can't fault the efforts of the friendly staff. can't fault the location, can't really fault the room as far as NZ regional standards go. Came here for a conference over a weekend. Conference facilities OK. Large function room, natural light and french doors opening onto ground floor patio areas. No air-conditioning in the hotel - made for a very hot... More

We had a nice stay here, the staff was inscridibly helpful and friendly. The hotel is recently under new ownership(according to the staff) and the rooms are old and need some updating. No ac, which meant our room facing the afternoon sun was very hot until late in the evening. Bed was comfy and we didn't have any issues other... More

We spent one night here, and as we left, we discovered that Tutukaka is a great area with lots of beautiful beaches and great hikes. Would like to return! Staff was friendly. Room was very stuffy, so we opened the windows, turned on the ceiling fans and found a floor fan. Room could use a new paint job, but it... More

Great area if you love the sea, diving, fishing, cruises to the Poor Knights Islands, snorkelling and swimming at the beautiful beaches, walking, surfing and great restaurants at the hotel and local restaurants within walking distance from hotel.

Stayed once again at Oceans Tutakaka. Had a lovely stay, the rooms are lovely and clean, spacious and comfortable. Staff really made us feel welcome and really went the extra yard to help us out with some tricky room logistics when we wanted to stay an extra night.. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when I stay up there again

We stayed here purely for the location as it was near Dive Tutukaka (3 mins walk away) and close to places to eat (4 restaurants?). Room was decent, was out most of the day exploring so just needed a place to sleep. No air conditioning and the ceiling fan was situated quite far away from the bed so it got... More

Booked in and receptionist was not terribly welcoming - but to be fair, was efficient though. Told us the rooms were hot (faced west and a very hot January day). No aircon but ceiling fan and stand fan. Should have gone back and asked for another room really. Room unbearable - no shade over window, no sun filter blinds and... More

We've been going to Tutukaka for more than 30 years, so the place is pretty dear to us. This was our first stay in the Quality Hotel (normally, we stayed with friends). The room was clean and adequate with a super king bed and a great view of the marina. However, two black marks: at $179 per night WiFi should... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while diving at have to say we only chose it based on proximity to the Marina and price - Having now been I can say that there are plenty of other accommodation in the area in a short drive so don’t stay for this reason alone. The Oceans / Quality Hotel seems to be... More

Had a marina view room. Stayed there for 2 nights and we were not disappointed. It's nice and clean and the staff is very friendly. Even though there was a power outage for about 1 hour the staff managed everything perfectly.
