A comfortable and well equiped motel room with a spa & pool,games room and picnic area. Comfy beds and good cooking facilities. We stayed during a busy time but the motel was calm and effeciently managed. A restful stop after a long journey to NZ. Good value for money & the hosts were very helpful in guiding us around the...

I've stayed here twice while in Whangarei for work and have enjoyed both stays. The rooms are clean and tidy, with big comfortable beds. The decor is not the flashest by a longshot, but it is cheap and you get 3 days of free wifi which is the best I have found at any place I have stayed in the... More

We had hired the premises because it had a conference room as well as accommodation. We arrived late at night, and Cath was waiting for us to arrive. Everything was perfect. Instead of having tiny little packs of milk, Cath gave us a bottle of milk knowing we would need it more. Cath had provided us with extra towels, Nothing... More

I stayed here and hired the conference room for some workshops. Love the conference room as it is light, warm and with a nice outlook over pool. Excellent kitchen. Cath the new owner is very friendly and helpful (she even did the dishes for me after my last workshop so I could get away.

Stayed here for three nights in early May 2013. Rang up from Australia the day before and spoke to Cheree who advised that there was a big hockey tournament on in Whangarei but she had one room left at the back which I booked for NZ$105 per night. The room was large, clean and well presented. No problems with the... More

Lots of children running around motel (think it was some kind of sports day in Whangarei). Children kicking balls around car park by cars, by motel rooms against wall & knocking on our room doors...

Really lovely place to stay.. The cat is really cool too!! It's a very handy location and easy to find. The owner/manager was very pleasant. It was good value and I'm not sure what some people expect for their money. $120 per night for 2 adults and 2 children is excellent in this day and age..

This motel is basic, clean, and quiet. We paid $100 NZD for the night and thought that this was a bit high, given that we've stayed in similar places in equally touristy areas for about $20 less. So you may want to shop around a bit before committing. We stayed in the Queen room, which came as well with a... More
