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

You don't get the number 1 rating by sitting around on your bum Lyn and her staff certainly don't - they can't be more helpful or present the suites any better We were made as welcome as long lost relatives Thanks for an enjoyable stay

Stayed here for work on the way back from Kerikeri. Fantastic. Really friendly and conveniently located. Lovely decoration and grounds, and more than a little bit luxurious. Bedding was super comfy, lovely big spa bath, fast internet (included for free). Ask for a corporate rate - totally reasonable. Would absolutely stay again and highly recommended.

We stayed here for one night - basically en route from Coromandel to Russell. We were only looking for a comfortable night sleep, but ended up being very impressed with the hotel and wish we could have stayed in this hotel in some of the other locales we visited! It is clean, modern and well equipped. It's location is right... More

We stayed here 2 nights on our way to Paihia. This is a wonderful place to stay. The host was very helpful with places to eat and where to go for a scenic trip when we left. The rooms are absolutely spotless and cannot be faulted.
