Travelling to Tutukaka and getting late, so decided to stay here. We had Unit 1 on the ground floor, next to the office. Even though motel is on the main road, we didn't hear any noise at all. The room itself, catering for disabled people, was nearly brand new. Don't know if room had been refurbished or the motel itself... More

Check in was very efficient ad we were offered fresh milk for coffee/tea if we wanted some. It was quite cold when we arrived however the heater had been switched on prior to our arrival so the room temperature was fine. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was very good. Decent size shower and good amenities. The downsides... More

Stayed here 2 nights, rooms were very clean, everything in top working order. Free Wifi, free parking. No road traffic noise at night stayed in Rm 1. Hosts were pleasant and helpful. Easy 5min walk to our venue, which saved on an $8 all day public parking! Excellent overall rating.

Lovely clean and tidy room also very spacious all we needed for our one night in Whangarei. Nice and handy to the central city, thought it may have been noisey due to it's close proximity to the main road but no it was lovely and quiet.

Clean and modern room. Pleasant and helpful check-in process. Our 1st stop after arrival into Auckland from overseas. Lots to see in the immediate local area and it would be recommended to stay 2 nights and enjoy a more leisurely exploration of the nearby beaches. In room wifi was fast and easy to access. The gardens at the old Quarry... More

Whangarei has a lot to offer and after driving through it, we decided to come back for a night's stay. Motel is conveniently located by the highway, but it is a bit of a hike to the downtown business area. Room was clean and comfortable and on site laundry was a nice touch. Lots of counter space made was a... More

Situated on the busy S1 road with ample off-road parking. The manager was welcoming and the rooms were clean, well decorated and very well equiped although for anybody staying for a length of time, storage space is a bit limited. The motel has no restaurant although they will provide a Continental Breakfast (delivered to your room the night before). The... More

On arrival, received a very warm welcome from friendly host. Grounds are tidy and very well kept and even the entry level room type is perfect. Modern bathroom, clean room and decent facilites. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting the basics done well and at a good rate.

In Whangarei for one day on business with a colleague. The room was very clean and spacious, however if you need wifi for work then I cannot recommend this place. It was unreliable, and you only get 200mb free which isn't even enough to open a couple of pdfs depending on the size. I must say though that the bathroom... More

Thank you for your feedback. Once we were advised at reception, by a couple of guests staying that there appeared to be a problem with the wifi we notified the technician who has been on the property to reset the channel. Internet is always a source of frustration as it is not our area of expertise and we rely on... More
