Stayed here only one night, nice size size room, clean with a nice kitchenette. There is a grocery store just a couple blocks away as well as a pizza place. You get a little free wi-fi, just ask the front desk. Nice stay for a night.

Nothing flash about this Whangarei motel, but everything was good. Nice and clean, well furnished kitchen area. Very helpful owners and excellent location just outside of the central business district. I would stay there again.

This old girl was clean and tidy but the dated interior needs a serious overhaul which I think is underway. This was reflected in the $80 per-night price-tag which was a bargain, even for Whangarei. The host was obliging and gracious considering my late arrival and short notice booking. Their friendly and welcoming manner means a positive recommendation from me... More

Thank you so much for your great review. We agree that the interior of our units need a serious makeover, as you say we are in the process of doing just that - we have re-carpeted 7 of the units, put in 5 new showers and modernised 5 of the kitchens so far. So if you are back this way... More

The motel is placed just outside the city centre, close to ammenities and in walking distance of Mair Park and Parahaki mountain. The rooms were clean, quiet and well furnished and fitted out. Like most NZ motels the room included cooking facilities. The TV accessed both NZ terrestrial stations and SKY. Free Wi-Fi allowed one to keep in touch. The... More

My 1 brm apartment was very spacious with a well equipped kitchenette. The whole apartment was spotlessly clean. The linen & towels were new, clean & soft which contributed to the extra comfy bed. The new owners are wonderfully friendly and offer free secure wi-fi too. Excellent value for money and in a great location; near enough to walk to... More

Really good value for money. New owners working well to make a comfortable, friendly motel. Easily accessed from main highway and 2 minutes from supermarket. All the facilities you could want for short or long stay. Highly recommended!

Booked this motel due to spacious room for reorganizing luggage for our Cook islands trip. Even the main road is close, it was a really quiet night, the hosts were friendly and helpfull. Would book again.

Thank you for your positive comments. The advantage older Motels have over the newer one's is that the units are much larger and give you the space to spread out. Our aim is to provide clean, comfortable and affordable units for all of our guests. More

This Motel is in a very handy position, not in the city central where it's busy, but just a couple of k down the road. Supermarkets close by. Motel is a little tired but nice and clean, not to noisy, has block walls so you don't hear your neighbours. I will be staying here again, great value for money
