We stayed at Motel Villa del Rio, in a house they have on the premises. It was fantastic as we were a team of 5, and the house was absolutely ideal, as you could cater for yourself and weren't in a number of small rooms.

My family stayed at this motel for a night and we were very impressed by the facilities and the service. The unit was very spacious and clean. I particularly liked the roomy bathroom and plenty of room to move around in the lounge area. The pool and spa pool were a definite bonus 😊

Very clean and comfortable one bedroom unit with a queen bed in the bedroom and 2 singles in the lounge area. Very friendly and helpful hosts, Judy and Dean. Although in a busy area, night time was quiet - no problems sleeping.

We woke them up at midnight and they were so lovely and understanding. The unit was the cleanest I've ever stayed in and very comfortable. Thanks so much for taking the stress out of a stressful weekend. Definitely our first choice if we need somewhere again.

We had a lovely stay here in a refurbished apartment. It was clean,comfortable and excellent value for money. The free WiFi was the best I have encountered on my travels here...Very fast. Breakfast is available, again at a decent price, and they will do your laundry for $9 full load. There is a swimming pool and spa.

I stayed here with my inlaws when my wife was taken seriously ill while on holiday in the Bay of Islands. She wound up at Whangarei hospital, and what started as a two day booking was extended several times to become a nine night stay in total. Judy and Dean were very accommodating, and while the hotel was very full... More

This motel will definitely offer you a functional room: bed is good, heater can keep the room warm in winter (for summer: there is no AC), shower works well, and even a very nice TV, and free WiFi. The kitchen is well appointed, except for an oven or convection microwave. Kind and helpful recent owner/operators, who have plans for improvement... More
