I stayed at this lodge for 2 nights and found it very clean and tidy. The owner is very helpful and the stay was made pleasant with free parking and easy access to cape reinga tour guide. Also the convenience of having pak n sav supermarket and warehouse just 3 minutes from it makes it really easy place to stay... More

Everything we needed for our stay, very clean and tidy. The owners were extremely helpful, and our trip on the Harrisons Cape Reinga trip was booked in as requested. Highly recommend this place to other travellers, especially those going on the Cape trip, as we simply had to walk across the road to pick up the coach trip.

This motel would be rated a 3 star but it was nicely furnished with all facilities you need on a holiday. Owners were just delightful helpful, nothing too much trouble. Booked us on Cape Reinga with HARRISONS. Extremely clean, a delightful stay.

There are a number of older budget motels in Kaitaia most on the main road. We read some of the reviews and decided to pick this one. The motel was clean and comfortable and the owners were very friendly. There is a supermarket just down the road which is handy and the Tour Company Harrisons Cape Runner which goes up... More

If you are looking for fancy this isn't the place. But if you want a good basic room that is clean and comfortable with friendly owners then this is the place for you. The location is right on State Route 1 so it is certainly convenient.

This conventional style motel has large well equipped rooms and is very quiet, comfortable and clean. The hosts are very friendly and helpful with information and bookings. The motel is situated on the edge of town, hence the quiet but is within accessible distance of takeaways, supermarket and the day tours to the 90 mile beach. It has a barbecue... More

Stayed here in September. Older motel but comfortable and very clean. Peter and Mary were friendly and very helpful. The free Wifi worked fine if you sat in the right spot in the room. The motel is on the outskirts of town but there is a supermarket next door. Highly recommended and would stay there again.
