This motel was a lucky find - thanks to trip advisor. Great units with good facilities and a beautiful location. Easy walk round the bay into Tairua and if you fancy a brisk walk up Mount Paku you are rewarded with 360 degree views of the Pacific coast and local islands. Great little restaurant on doorstep - the Old Mill... More

Regardless this motel is in the most glorious position - short walk to the beach and overlooking the estuary. The night we were there it was a fabulous sunset on a very warm night and we sat out on our terrace for ages. Also handy to the Old Mill Restaurant - I would definitely stay again. The unit was also... More

This motel is in a brilliant position with a safe beach for children right across the road and a short walk up the road makes for easy access to yet another beach (Ocean Beach) - this one great for surfing, boogie boards etc - saw many fishing later in the evening as well . Paddle boards and kayaks provided free... More

We spent 2 nights in unit 10 (1 bed apartment) and loved every minute. Beautiful views, right next to a super little quiet beach and free kayaks/bikes too. Apartments really comfortable and well equipped. Hosts very helpful and welcoming. Rooms very clean. Would highly recommend.

We booked online and on arrival were upgraded to unit nine a one bedroom apartment. A stunning 180 degree view of Tairua harbour. The hosts were amazing and informed us that they had kayaks, paddle boards, fishing rods and bikes for use free of charge. There were free BBQ'S and the rooms were spotless. Town was only a five minute... More

We had studio 5, ground level, next the small service road and the beach. We had two patios, 1 facing the beach and one facing N. The accommodation was spotless and fresh, and the kitchen/diner was fully equipped. Our hosts offered great hospitality. We loved it and would recommend for a beachy laid back stay. The views across the water... More

Stayed for 5 nights, with hubbie fishing , whilst I explored the Coromandel area each day. Lovely studio apartment with views across Tairua. Helpful friendly managers. Had everything we needed. Great places to eat nearby.

Stayed in unit no 8 which is perched on top of the hill with nice view of the river. The location is nice, serene and quiet. The unit comes with a living, a bedroom and kitchen; all nice and tidy. Don't expect too much amenities nearby: The kind of place for a sojourn and quiet reflections.

We booked in via the Information Centre and were pleasantly surprised to arrive at The Paku Lodge. We checked in and were allocated unit 2, only to find there was only a queen bed in the delightfully airy unit with a magnificent view of the bay. Regrettably we needed a twin room. Trevor offered us a suite at a reduced... More

Nice quiet place, warm and helpful welcome from managers, large light-coloured clean and comfortable studios offering a great view on the estuary. Central place to stay in the eastern Coromandel area. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.
