We were on our way to the Bay of Islands and booked this Motel as a stopover on the way. We had our daughter and grandson with us so we had the family unit. We were very impressed with both the cleanliness of the unit and the good welcome that we received. We will be back

Comfortable place to stay, right on the marina. We had two rooms, the function of the first room was livingroom, kitchen and dining with a single bed. The second room was a bedroom. The bathroom was ensuite. The flat panel TV was movable from one room to the other. Overall it was quite spacious. The hotel manager was very helpful... More

I travel a lot for work, and often in this region so thought I would give Marina a try. Room was lovely and big, nice cooking facilities and breakfast bar. Unfortunately there was no hot water so showers we cold and my room was not properly cleaned after the first night, the bed not made and only the dishes done,... More

Stayed here while Rally Whangarei was on. Great locations and rooms were enough for what we needed. Lovely people. Only little annoying thing is the lack of car parking and area to turn vehicles around. Rooms were also equipped for how many that was recommends eg. Recommended 3 so 3 cups, 3 chairs, 3 plates. So hard when you have... More

A short break over Christmas was taken at this motel, we had the granny flat and couldn't fault it. Service was excellent, a special request for a blind over a door was promptly dealt with, and really appreciated. The room had everything we needed and the location was perfect for walking to town. The only request my son had was... More

We only stayed one night and even though it was comfortable it was looking a bit tired and needed some TLC. The bathroom was a good configuration but no where to put towels and there was plenty of room to put a couple of hand rails

We only stayed for one night, which was OK, and reasonable value for money. The unit was very clean and had been completely renovated, but lacked any homely charm - it was basic. The hot water came from a tank in a kitchen cupboard, and we discovered (too late) that there only enough hot water for one shower. We'd probably... More

A quaint little motel on the water, very clean and tidy and it has all the amenities you need such as a kitchenette, flat screen t.v, comfy couch and beds and a good shower. The nautical theme gives it a relaxing feel. You can stroll along the river passed the yacht basin into town, along the way you'll find the... More

This is a cheap place to stay but it wasn't somewhere I would rush back to. The place was a bit run down and the owner didn't seem to be very hands on. When we arrived (at 4pm) we were shown our room where the sheets hadn't been changed from the previous guest. We were then given a new room... More

Hi there and thanks for the input, all feed back is good. And as Im sure you can appreciate 2 weeks of ownership in peak season gives us little opportunity to renovate so as you said the place is a bit "out of date" and we also experienced a few teething problems with housekeeping staff. But changes have started already... More

If you want five-star luxury don't stay here, but if you want a clean, comfy place for a decent price, go for it! Sure, it's old-style but the things you need to be updated have been - i.e. good shower, comfy bed. It's very clean and the owners are very nice, also central location and nice to be beside the...
