Jan & Barry Parsonage (UK) stayed with Mary & Pete in Feb 2014 and were treated like family. Mary was very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Helped with local information - best advice to do the 90 mile beach excursion with Harrison's - wouldn't have missed it for the world!!! Spacious, comfortable accommodation.

After my initial contact with the proprietor on phone, I knew I was in for a good stay. On arrival Mary made my husband and I and our two teenage grand children feel right at home, it was like I'd known her for years. Our unit was a charm (a bit dated), however it was immaculate and very clean. After... More

We stayed for two nights at this Motor Lodge whilst visiting Cape Reinga and the North Cape. The accommodation is very clean and well appointed even for three persons.There were four beds in the two rooms. There is a swimming pool too which is a bonus after a whole day driving, and a BBQ!!

Thanks for a great stay. Mary is a Northland gem! She had heaps of local knowledge and tips as well as helping to return our lost ipod after we had left. Room was simple, yet very clean and tidy; it was perfect for a short overnight stay for our family. Great location.

We (3 adults + 10 & 7 yr old kids) stayed here for 2 nights with doing the bus trip to Cape Reinga. The 2 bedroom unit was a good size and kitchen was well equipped. The kids enjoyed the pool and the bbq was good. Supermarket next door was handy; Harrisons bus trip was over the road so handy... More

This proprietor just has no idea. They should not work in the service industry and by doing so are an embarrassment to other kiwi hoteliers. One of the rudest people I've ever had the displeasure of dealing with.

We stayed at this motel because the tour company is opposite the road and supermarket is nearby. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The small room was very cold. There is only one heater in the living room. The clocks showed the wrong time. The light was not working at the top of the kitchen area. Overall it was... More
