Lovely large clean reasonably priced rooms. We had a lower corner room, and had no issues with noise from upstairs guests. We were also happy to read in the compendium, that they asked ppl to curtail their noise, and noise from children. Easy access to a variety of foods, across the road. Would definitely stay again. Recommended.

We stayed in lower room No3. Some noise from shower and taps above. Pipes were leaking out side our back window, causing water to flood down the outside of the pipe and over the upper veranda every time the upper kitchen released the sink, some smell causing us to close window. Ants were around the kitchen sink unit. Unit was... More

We stayed here in early April and was chosen as a place to stop between Hamilton and Paihia. We found a gem! The motel is across the road from the shopping centre which has a small supermarket, and some food shops. The big surprise was a Warehouse store! Small town, big store! Our room was upstairs and had a wrap... More

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.
