Awesome owners. Stayed here for 2 nights. The first night was my wife's birthday. The owners on a short notice organized an amazing cake to surprise here. And later repacked it for us to take back to Auckland. Exceptionally Great Customer Service. The Motel- Great Views, Clean and Modern Unit. Love the deck and the amazing seating arrangements. Highly Recommended..... More

Found this motel at the last minute. We had planned on staying only one night, but ended up staying two nights as the location, the unit and our hosts exceeded our expectations. The motel is right across from the beach so the view was great. The unit was clean, comfortable and well appointed. Yvonne and Mike were exceptional hosts. We... More

This was the best motel we stayed at during our two week trip to New Zealand. The owners were friendly and we loved the visits from their dog Jack. To sit outside our unit and enjoy the view of the beach across the road was heavenly. The unit was spotless with a very modern bathroom. We will gladly recommend it... More

My husband and I had a delightful stay. The complex is a credit to the owners, nothing was too much trouble. Even when there was a problem with the TV they persevered for over an hour and solved the problem, exceptional service.Bonus to our stay was seeing the Black Caps beating South Africa in the Cricket World Cup semi final....

Located right across the road from the beach, and just a minute drive/ easy flat walk to town centre, this is a great place to stay. Our one bedroom unit was immaculate and modern, apparently renovated only a year ago. Full kitchen facilities in our room and sparkling clean bathroom. A super comfortable bed helped make a good nights sleep.... More

My fiance and I stayed at Baileys for a relaxing weekend away. Very clean room with more than adequate facilities including full oven and stop top, full size fridge and a dish washer. Very modern accommodation with excellent view from both in the room and on the balcony. The managers were friendly and welcoming without being over the top. The... More

Although initial impressions were favourable, the unit being clean and tidy, the bedroom lacked any ventilation and was very hot owing to the afternoon sun shining straight into the room. This would have been uncomfortable but tolerable had a mouse not made it into the unit and onto my son's bed. A second time it actually ran up his leg.... More

In spite of the fact that we had booked with the hotel in October, when we showed up on Jan 1st we were informed that, although they had our reservation, they had given our room away by "accident" and that they "were't sure what happened" - Given it was a peak time we spent a considerable amount of money checking...
