I cannot say enough as to the Professional and friendly welcome extended by Paul. I would recommend Blue Water Motel in a Heartbeat, clean and shiny rooms with a great view and shops and restaurants a 2 minute walk away. I only got home 20 minutes ago and want to go back already! Thanks again for a memorable visit:-)

This was our second visit to the beautiful Coromandel and the Blue Water Motel. This is a well well managed Motel with a friendly and helpful owner who is happy to answer any questions about the area. The room we stayed in was cosy and comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location is convenient for restaurants and walks to the bay.... More

Just enjoyed an excellent two night stopover. Very good location. Cabins appointed tastefully & comprehensively. Immaculately clean. Small spa pool. Friendly & knowledgeable owner who succeeds on all fronts in running a really excellent motel. Highly recommended. John

We received a very friendly and helpful welcome from Paul who let us know all the best things to see and do. He also provided a spade to dig our hole at Hot Water Beach! Our chalet was lovely - spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Nice hot shower. Plenty of opening windows plus a ceiling fan. Also a proper... More

My wife and I stayed two evenings with Paul, and the room was perfect, neat as a pin, and the service impeccable. Paul also did a laundry for us for a nominal fee, a much needed service on a one month driving tour of NZ. Paul also recommended a local restaurant called Shells on the main street in town, and...

I must thank the fishermen for cancelling their booking! We were fortunately at the Blue Water Motel at the right time! We could not have found better accommodation if we had spent time researching. We were made extremely welcome, the unit was spotless in wonderful surroundings. It was great to be able to walk down the road for dinner, enjoy... More

Very good location,with just a short stroll to shops, restaurants etc. We stayed in the 2bed unit which was excellent, the motel had full facilities with helpful and friendly owners. Would stay again if ever in the area.

Have just stayed here for two nights, with my wife, on our NZ tour. The room was clean and comfortable, although the smallest on the tour so far. Paul was most helpful with lots of information and suggestions of things to do. Would stay here again.

We recently spent a perfect week here. Paul and Natasha cannot be faulted for their kindness and helpfulness and Tairua must be one of the friendliest towns in NZ.
