Stayed here for one night. Spacious room with spa bath, comfortable bed. The owners are very friendly and helpful. City center in walking distance. The overall stay was very pleasant and lovely. Only issue, the rooms are a bit noisy, you can hear the street and the airplanes. Would stay again here!

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback and to let us know you enjoyed your stay. We hope you do get the chance to stay again and by then the planned road upgrade will be completed. and hopefully there will be no rescue operations.The aeroplane noise was the Rescue Helicopter which takes this path very occasionally...

We stayed one night and would have loved to stay longer. Super spa bath and facilities. Enjoyed the outdoor table and garden setting - BQ available and a heated pool. Hosts most helpful, pleasant and friendly. Highly recommended.

Husband and I eloped and we got a room last minute. Lyn & Brett were so lovely! They put some beautiful chocolates and rose petals on the bed, even at such short notice. Breakfast the next morning was lovely as well. Definitely recommend! Lovely service and beautiful room, loved the spa bath.

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. Stayed in one if the studio rooms but it was a great size room for me. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left Brett and Lyn were super helpful, even remembering a previous colleague of mine who'd stated there! Brett gave me great movie recommendations and Lyn...

My family and I stayed here for two nights, in the 2-bedroom suite (room #1). In our pre-stay correspondence with the hosts, Lyn was very prompt in responding to our request for the room and in confirming our requests for the room (e.g. king-size bed, portable cots). Upon arrival, the room was more beautiful and comfortable than the online pictures... More

We stayed for one night in their Studio Suite. Walking through the door of the unit was an unexpected surprise as we were greeted with a luxurious setting. The décor was very in keeping with the style of the Motel and very tastefully selected. The equipment supplied was all hygenic, quality and a full range right down to the full... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in their 2 bedroom apartment, absolute luxury! Top quality furniture, bedding etc. everything we needed and more. I could have moved in! We were in whangarei when the weather was terrible - it was so nice to retreat to our luxury apartment. Will definitely return in summer as swimming pool looked great. Host helpful... More

Stayed 2 nights. Room was spacious and spotless. Well equipped kitchen if wanting to self cater. Generous sized and well laid out bathroom with amenities that had some thought put in to them. Loved the spa bath. Bed was comfy. Had a ground floor unit and didn't hear any road noise. Only a few mins drive to the town basin... More

In January this year my wife and I with our 3 children spent two nights at this motel and it was a great pity we weren’t there for at least a week. Everything about this motel is first class – the units are so beautifully decked out with quality fittings and furniture. The new owners, who had just started there... More

Very comfortable rooms with a large bathroom including spabath. If I was to look for a fault it would be that the shower nozzle is set a little low if you are over 6 ft. This is an issue with many hotel rooms and would not prevent me from coming back as everything else offered by the lodge was great.... More
