We stayed here at the end of 2013 with my 70 year old Dad, who said it was the nicest motel he has ever stayed at. We all agree. It felt like staying in someone's home, it was so clean and warm and inviting. We had adjoining rooms off a large lounge room, great layout and well stocked kitchen, comfy... More

This was a great place to stay. We have a big nice clean room. Great view of the beach and easily walked down there. We used the spa and it was great. The owners were very helpful. They told us the good places to eat and when they close. They were very friendly.

A most enjoyable and well run motel. The rooms are large and light and well equipped. The motel has its own good sized swimming pool. It is well located for short duration visits to local beaches as well as to other attractions in the area. There are eateries and shops nearby and it is a quiet overnight location. Highly recommend... More

Excellent small motel. The owners keep this motel spotlessly clean. Not on the waterfront but good location all the same. Small outside pool. Everything you are likely to need on a self drive tour. Very helpful owners.

Very nice and helpful owners. Very clean and well appointed room. Short walk to the beach. Would recommend and would definitely use again. Good location for a restful break and a short drive to national parks and several beaches.

We stayed for one night of our self drive holiday in New Zealand as we repositioned ourselves from Piahia to Rotorua. We were warmly greeted by the owner who made us very welcome. The suite consists of a lounge/kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom (shower not bath). What immediately strikes you is the cleanliness and order of everything within the rooms. The... More

A wonderful motel! The owners are very inviting and helpful. The rooms are very pleasant, and the facilities great. Location is very handy, a nice stroll to the beach, and handy to shops (including a minimart) and restaurants. Quite central to coastal region to explore beaches, parks and crafty Matakana. Relatively close to Omaha as well. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed again last month on our way north and again on our way back through. Love this motel as our halfway point when heading to the Far North. Loved swimming in the pool and having a spa bath in your own unit leads to a completely relaxing night. Love that you can get dinner from just across the road,... More

Snell's Beach is a lovely little town of beach houses tumbling down a hill to the beach. Our upstairs suite (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, dining and sitting area) came complete with its own deck, barbeque and outside table and chairs. Coming into town from the north, be careful to not miss the entrance way before the intersection. The pool was unfortunately... More

Thank you John & Ann for your comments, but our Swimming Pool is definitely heated and open from Labour Weekend (October 25th) to the middle of May. And for the rest of the year it is still always open .... but a bit cold !! The Pool, in it's beautiful sub-tropical setting, is a great place to swim or just... More

Always have a lovely time when staying here. Just a short stroll down to the beach or over the road for takeaways. We always enjoy going for a drive back to Warkworth to the shops or to the Matakana market on Saturday morning. Beautiful area of NZ to holiday in. This time the owners were away but had a more...
