Great, friendly, accomodating service. Clean rooms, everything worked. Not the most modern bathroom but functioned well. Comfortable bed. Kitchen had all we needed. Sky TV and wi-fi. We had a two room unit still very quiet.

Thanks for kind words, we hope our friendly approach and helpful staff makes your stay a nice memorable one. Yes just some of our bathrooms are a little dated, and we are gradually changing that More

I've booked this hotel via Agoda.com for 4 nights starting Sun. I arrived late Sun night (around 9pm-I've called and advised the owner it would be the case) and went straight to bed. I found the rooms and furniture/furnishings were quite old,mismatched (as in possibly bought second-hand) and generally seen better days. When I tried to use the heater, it... More

Well where do I start. This was a bad experience for us. I accept I asked this guest to leave. We are not a Prostitute friendly Motel, and I make no apologies for my stand. This guest was 100% PROSTITUTE !!!. Not a guess on my behalf as this guest registered and used the same phone number in the local... More

this was our second stay and both visits were good. The staff are brilliant - nothing is a bother. The rooms are old but well organised and the furniture is very comfortable. Full Sky, free WIFI and a spa and sauna meant that we were never left wondering what to do. There is also a lovely park next door.

Our group of four stayed here one night on the way to the Bay of Islands. Faded Glory? No, I don't think this place ever had a glory day. The rooms were musty, the carpets were stained, the towels were threadbare and the beds were unforgiving. We noted the spa and sauna but were not attracted to them. The hotel... More

I'm glad these guests enjoyed there stay. I am however disappointed with several ants that visited the room. this is not a common problem here normally, and they generally arrive when guests leave sweet things out for them - I do apologise though More

A group of us stayed here booking out five smaller units. It was over the time of the kapahaka comps and we were lucky to get any accommodation at all in Whangarei as we left it a bit late.

An older style motel with good "old fashioned" friendly owners. This motel was good value for clean basic accomodation. The owners were very helpful and we appreciated their assistance in storing our box of fish bound for Australia in their coolroom overnight. They didn't have to go "above and beyond" but they seemed to genuinely want to help their guests.... More

Facilities leave a lot to be desired, manager was very helpful, free spa is a bonus. Could do with an major overhaul in decor, information centre is just a short walk away.
