Very friendly hosts and great place to stay if you want to explore the area. They were also very helpful with the local attractions and booking of trips. Camp ground was very clean and it was right next to the water and short distance to the waterfalls.

Perfect views, perfect room, mint condition - absolute bliss. Couldnt recommend it highly enough for couples young or old, families or groups of friends. It is too far out of Paihia to walk but that wasnt a problem for us. I would highly recommend renting the Kayaks and going out on the river and falls.

Very friendly attentive people run this motel. Nothing was too much trouble. Great knowledge of local area. Fantastic view of the electrical storm! Our group of 5 stayed for 5 nights and the room was very clean and comfortable. They also cut us a deal on a fishing charter, fishing was so successful we were delighted to share with staff.... More

We had three nights in queen studio apartment, looking out to lovely pool and across to the Haruru Falls. The pool was especially welcome with the humidity over 100% that weekend. Really friendly host, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable bed. Great to come back to after busy, tiring days at conference.

My family & I recently stayed here & really enjoyed it. The rooms are well maintained, the staff are really friendly & have helpful suggestions of touristy things to try & the views from our room were just awesome. I would recommend Falls Motel & Waterfront Campground to anyone looking at somewhere to stay whilst in the area.

We stayed in a King Suite and found it roomy and comfortable. The owner, Peter, was a wealth of information and helped us select some great tours! He made great shopping recommendations too! The views from the room were great! The Haruru Falls were beautiful and we got to see the rehearsals for Whaitangi day, which were fantastic. High tide... More

Booked campsite, the campground is situated at the right in front of Haruru fall, and has amazing view. Staff were very friendly and helpful to our request. Kitchen and shower facilities may be bit old but they were quite clean. I would definitely visit again on next summer.
