Perfect place to stay directly across from the beach! Wonderful, friendly hosts. Would definitely recommend staying here? I enjoyed my stay and we had plenty of room for our family =) we also felt very welcome by the neighbours. Banana boat is setup just across the road too!

An amazing view, straight acroos the road from the beach and ocean, superb view. Very attentive service but rooms showing their age. The showers should be refurbed, dank slightly mouldy hide away, no direct light into cubicle.sixties style kitchen but it all worked and did the job. I personally think it is well worth it.if one is after jazzed up... More

Lucky for us we thought, over the New Year break to find somewhere we could go with our pooch with a last minute decision to take a break in the only week my husband has off until July. He had worked long hours over Xmas and needed to stop. Our favourite place in Tauranga no longer takes dogs - (having... More

Stayed 3 nights in Sep 2013 and what a relaxing break we had. Ron & Rhonda were delightful Hosts - full of information and nothing was too much trouble for them. While this property was an older style Motel (as many are in NZ), everything had been done to present our Unit in the best possible light. It was very... More

Our family have chosen this motel for the past three years for a family get-together. Ron and Rhonda have been marvelous. The motels have always been nice and clean and tidy and serviced daily. Each time we have stayed we have used the BBQ area out the back and found it very user friendly, and this year Ron even gave... More

My wife and I picked this hotel for it's location during our tour of New Zealand and we got it right. It is right on the beach and, if you are lucky like us, you may get the 1 bedroom apartment on the end with a window looking out to sea. Ron and Rhonda were perfect hosts, very accomodating and...

We have stayed a number of times when going on fishing charters, and can vouch for the cleanliness and attention to detail that the owners have given each unit. Old fashion hospitality that makes up for the older look of the complex. Furnishing are up to date and functional. Nice barbecue area. Owners only too happy to give advice on... More

I stayed one night in Whitianga and this motel is in a great location just across the road from the beach and a few minutes walk to the town shops and restaurants. The unit I stayed in was very old and seemed a little expensive.The Manager is very helpful and nice to deal with, as good a reason as any... More
