We celebrated our son's birthday with friends and family at the Mineral Park Hotel. As we came from different parts of the North Island, it was great that we could all meet up, spend quality time together, relaxing, eating and swimming and stay the night. Each Studio and Family room was clean and tidy with a lovely new renovated private... More

My hunting partner and I have stayed at this motel complex for the past four years. The property under new management is in poor condition, very outdated, cold spa, poor service and furniture that is a lower standard than backpackers. Owner did not check that I had prepaid for a night and requested we pay again. Room was not serviced.... More

I booked this motel while en route from Whangarei to Auckland... I did not check Tripadvisor.... Big Mistake ! I read the other Tripadvisor negative reviews retrospectively and agree with them. This motel's accommodation is just BAD. Worse than back-packer standard. Most motels in NZ are good, welcoming and very clean. Not this one.... Mineral Park Motel is in a... More

When we got there it was a big overwhelming with the big huge fences around each family unit. We were disappointed the children's playground has been removed and not been replaced. We were happy with the new spa however that has gone into each unit. better than the ones before, and you could adjust the water hotness, which you couldn't... More

Colin and Marie, the proprietors, went all out to make our stay both memorable and comfortable, We are most grateful to them going out of their way to make our room so lovely by providing candles, a complimentary bouquet of flowers and fruit basket with chilled wined which we thoroughly enjoyed on our wedding night. The spa pool that was... More

This use to be our family get away but now I will never re visit this motel. From arrival to departure myself and our kids felt unsafe. The motel has new people running it and they have turned it into a place you want to hide from someone or something. They didn't advise us on booking that renovations were under... More

Been here a couple of years ago and was ok then. Stayed one night only thankfully. Whole unit smelled musty and old and felt creepy. Bed was uncomfortable, linen looked clean. Private hot pool got too hot (over 42 degrees). Had to manually turn hot water off at valve or we would have been cooked ! Did not have a... More

I chose this motel because of the fact that it had a private pool with each room, and paid $130 a night for this privilege. This was the most I paid at any motel on my two weeks in N.Z., and if it hadn't been for the convenience of the pool it would have been money down the drain. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Furniture is shabby,and dusty, stained on the mattress protectors, Spa is too hot too use and over 30 years old, and the water had a sulphur smell and didn't look clean. Only mirror in bathroom with no plug for hairdryer. It is 1960s old motel unit which hasn't kept up with the times.
