We found this place so relaxing. We had a beautiful two bedroom which was tastefully decorated, breezy and spotless. You can walk everywhere other than Hot Water Beach and when you go there they give you towels and there is a shovel outside your door you can take to dig your hole! We ended up staying in both nights as... More

This lodge is truly a haven. The lodge is set off the main road and cleverly laid out so that each unit is relatively private and surrounded by beautiful gardens which are a credit to the groundskeepers/owners. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful and it would have to be one of the best places I've stayed in regard... More

Set in some beautiful gardens and located in the centre of Hahei this motel is very good. The rooms are of a good size but only has a kettle and fridge so you re limited on what you can prepare. The owner is so friendly and helpful. You have access into the garden from your room with sun chairs and... More

This is a really excellent place to stay. The accommodation is spacious and beautifully fitted out. The staff and owners were extremely helpful. The motel is very good for Cathedral Cove and for the hot beach - ask the owners or staff about the best times to go because they can be very crowded. The units are provided with spades... More

The accommodation looks exactly like on the photos, everything is nice, clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful. There are even free spades for Hot Water Beach! Hahei is a little town (tiny grocery shop) but it is almost like "Heaven on Earth". I stayed here in September and loved every minute of it. I even ended up... More

The staff were great (thanks Glen, especially for the Pour House recommendation) and the buildings were the best I've stayed in for a backpackers. It was a perfect new log cabin style and there was nice spots to sit and read away inside if you wanted a break from the outrageous beauty outside. The dorms were spotless and the bunks... More

This place is simply stunning. Quiet peaceful and set in superb gardens just minutes walk from the fabulous beach. Staff very friendly and helpful and made us feel most welcome. Stayed in one of the cabins which was spotlessly clean and well equipped. 2 good restaurants nearby if you dont fancy self catering

Everything was excellent. Kitchen, Lounge, TV, bedrooms, garden were all excellent. People running the place were helpful and friendly. Each motel unit even came with a small shovel to take to Hot Water Beach. We had an amazing, relaxing time.

Our stay here was quiet and relaxing. We had a private room with two beds and got fantastic sleep. The windows opened out to a beautiful view. The bathrooms were down the hall and wifi was not free which were the only two down sides. It was a great location, with a restaurant right there. Cathedral Cove is a walk... More
