Baileys at the Beach is so well positioned. It's so easy to find, and is directly across the road from Buffalo Beach. Whenever you feel like it, you can pop across the road, take a dip, and walk back. It's not far from town, only a 20 minute walk. We walked in to grab some dinner, and ate it at... More

Yvonne and Mike provide a very clean, modernized comfortable motel for your visit to Whitianga. The accommodation is first rate, and a great value. Yvonne and Mike were also very helpful in deciding which local sights to visit, as well as good places to eat in Whitianga and surrounding towns. We enjoyed our stay with them very much, and actually... More

The owners take a great pride in ensuring the motel and grounds are immaculate. The noise from traffic irritated me during the day, which is because Whitianga is a busy seaside town in peak season. Fortunately the traffic noise disappeared at night and we slept well. The owners were friendly and had a lovely, well behaved dog which visited daily... More

Stayed 1 night traveling. Owners very pleasant and accommodating. Large clean rooms. Right across from beach. Quiet at night, noisy morning traffic. Easy access to Cathedral Cove & Hot Water Beach. Would stay again.

Travelled as a family of 9 and accomodation was lovely, spacious upstairs with excellent cooking facilities. Beautiful views across the bay. Rooms can easily accommodate 3 to 4 adults. We had booked 3 rooms with Last Minute and the hotel only deals with Expedia, so there seemed confusion about what we had booked. The welcome from Yvonne was most unwelcoming!... More

We arrived at the motel and as we were checking in we were asked to pay for the stay so we asked to see the rooms first. The owner lashed out at us and left the reception and asked his wife to deal with us. He was very rude to us and spoiled the day for us with his rude... More

We had an upstairs unit with a beautiful view of the bay. Spotlessly clean. Luxuriously appointed - towelling robes, dish drawer dishwasher, sumptuously comfortable super king sized bed. Friendly & welcoming owners Mike & Yvonne. Excellent value at $165 for 2. Have not stayed at a better motel.

A most enjoyable welcome and stay. The owners could not have done more to make our stay more welcome and pleasant. The BBQ was prepared for our use to perfection. The rooms are modern and extremely comfortable. The super king beds are super comfortable. Great value.
