We had a friendly welcome and enjoyed our stay at this Motor Lodge. It had a great uninterrupted view from the units out to the ocean and the port. All units face the sea, with no road in front of them,( just a walkway and that is quite a distance away) Table and chairs were available to sit outside on... More

We stayed for 2 days as 2 couples so we had 2 rooms. I had specific requirements about king beds, first floor rooms and being fairly close. The receptionist was fantastic and helpful. When we arrived we were early and just checked to see if the rooms were ready. We had a lovely welcome and the Receptionist was great and... More

My last stay at Harbour View a few years ago was a little disappointing as the in-room maintenance (holes in the walls, exposed plastering and broken door locks) was lacking. Returned last month and I could definitely see the improvement....I hope it wasn't just because I was in a different room though! Walls were a lot tidier (perhaps a fresh... More

The Receptionist made checking in quite painless. Reception also provided a lot of help and assistance to help us enjoy our stay in the area. Our room on the ground floor had a view over the beach and out to see. Very nice. The motel is in good decorative order. The furnishings are good quality and in good repair. The... More

Stayed for a week while playing Masters hockey. Very comfortable and it was good to be able to sit outside with a sea view. Would recommend it. A wide variety of rooms ... some with cooking facilities.

Ahuriri is a good location and the Motel has views out to the ocean although ours on the ground level were not as good as it would be on first floor. Very noisy at ground level at back of hotel and no fresh air at night as have to keep curtains closed as people can see in and bright lights... More

We loved this place. After stocking up on wine and beer it was the perfect spot to take in the harbour happenings. It was quiet and clean with nice restaurants nearby. Be sure to go to Milk and Honey for dinner. A block away.

We wanted to see family and friends in the Hawkes Bay so booked in to the Harbour View Motor Lodge. It had been recommended by friends so went with high hopes and we were not disappointed. Our room was ground floor and as with all their rooms it had the most wonderful view over a wide grassy area to a... More

We stay here on a regular basis for business trips. Great view fro all the rooms but the second floor is the best. Walking distance to some nice eateries, East Pier is just across the grass. Not far from the port, so can watch the ships coming and going, also some surfing if surfs up. Good size rooms and bathrooms.... More

We had a ground floor very large room with king size bed, large bathroom and good kitchen facilities. Our room was light and airy, due to the wall to wall double doors which opened up onto the lawns, which led down to the sea. Nice quiet location. It would take five minutes to drive into the centre, but we chose... More
