While premises are lovely and new the Owner (not management) was not helpful at all when giving out kayaks. One life jacket was inadequate and told to put petite 4 yr old child into the adult jacket and pull it tight, as father didn't need one. Shocking!!

We stayed here for one night and found it very clean and well kept. There was plenty of room and a massive bathroom. The staff were very friendly and let us view all the rooms before choosing the one we wanted. They provided laundry facilities and were generally very obliging, even with us checking out late. It is located close... More

Although newly refurbished, the walls are paperthin and you hear next door breathing and worse.. This was for the luxury studio at 190$ a night! Could not sleep all night and management was rude when I complained. STAY AWAY!

This motel is a good value for the location. The wonderful beach is right across the street. The rooms are large and comfortable. Free use of laundry room was a real bonus. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.

We chose this place on the spur of the moment while driving past and are very glad we did. The charming owner/manager gave us three keys to choose our room from - upstairs luxury (newly renovated), downstairs unrenovated (concrete-block walls and rather small) or newly renovated downstairs. We chose the last and really loved it. The double room in the... More

This motel was recently (dec 2013) remade and is excellent value. We stayed two nights. It is immaculately clean, has laundry, kayaks, super friendly and helpful hosts (miss you Masti the dog!) and is right in front of the beach. Stay there!

We have just returned home after taking the "Managers Winter Special" deal of three nights for $250. Newly refurbished unit, well equipped and just across the road from the beautiful beach. Unit serviced daily and friendly helpful service from Ambuj the manager. Recommended.

This hotel was recommended by a friend who stayed during the Easter weekend. The location suited our family. It's in a quiet part of town but just across the road is the beach. The place was clean, especially the bathroom, lots of towels to go around. Our unit could fit 5 persons comfortably. We were just 2 adults and 2... More

Clean, comfortable and in an excellent location with sea views. The town centre is a fair walking distance away though, but can be reached within 5 mins by car. We were offered a special rate for a 2 nights stay with a complimentary buffet breakfast included on both days. Would certainly recommend at the price.

This location is under new management and there have been huge improvements. Ok it's not the Ritz and it can't compete with the best. In Whitianga. But is very clean comfortable and unpretentious. The new manager has plans and is very friendly and helpful. Give it a try at the price they are charging ,it's vey good value
