Craig welcomed us, informed us of various local eateries, walks, golf course....he showed us to our ground floor unit, which was excellent and well priced.... We did have two very pleasant nights in Ohope in comfortable accommodation, which we are happy to recommend to any traveller...

My husband and I spent the month of February staying in this motel. It is quiet and very clean. There are enough kitchen items to cook your meals. There are chairs in front and the back of your room. We were on the second floor and you can look out and see the ocean on one side and the harbor... More

We had the fortune if staying in this motel when in New Zealand and it was a perfect location for getting to the beautiful beach which was only 100 yards away. The rooms were spacious, very clean with very comfortable beds. Whakatane is a beautiful part of the country and I would highly recommend you go there if you ever... More

This place is just wonderful. Very clean & modern, a short stroll to the deserted beach, close to Ohope township & Whakatane if you have a vehicle. The host Craig was lovely, very accommodating answering our questions. If you want a nice , quiet stay in Ohope, this is the place for you!

Lovely and friendly customer service with affordable room prices. Was in the area on a last minute matter needed a place to stay somewhere cheap, basic and nice. Happen to be looking down there road, only by chance that I come across this lovely affordable motel. Highly recommend based on price, room interior, location and service.

Even though we were early to our accommodation Sandy allowed us to check in early so we were able to rest and relax after a terrible trip down. Sandy and Craig pointed out great eating places but we stayed at the motel and ate in the privacy of our own private patio. All I can say is we had a... More

A super stay, after a warm, friendly welcome by Craig and Sandy we were shown to our spacious and well equiped one bedroom unit. It had a lovely private patio off the lounge. The unit was spotlessly clean with comfortable furniture and a freshly renovated and modern bathroom and kitchen. It was just a 50 metre walk to the beach... More

We were welcomed warmly. We hired two bedrooms so the large comfortable lounge and enormous wetroom were an added bonus. The kitchen is well appointed though a coffee plunger would have been handy. We ate in the garden and felt relaxed and comfortable. A few little issues could be addressed such as paint around the door furniture and the sliding... More

Great spacious 2 Bedroom Unit, all very comfortable, good facilities, clean & tidy too. Nice outlook & tidy grounds. Handy to beach & harbour, shop/cafe short drive away. Wonderful hosts, always busy about the place, they even treated us to freshly smoked fish for lunch!
