Really looked after us with great recommendations for daily activities. Chalet was extremely comfortable with all necessary facilities. Lots of space. Staff were friendly and helpful with any queries we had! Would definitely stay there again.

We planned our trip in advance to the Coromandel but weather did not cooperate. The room was warm, clean, and dry - perfect to hideaway from the gusty winds and rain. We chose to stay another night to wait out the weather. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

What a really lovely beautiful place!! Everything was spotlessly clean and a very quiet area. We stayed for 3 nights and really explored the area. The climb up Mt Paku is excellent to do. The room was within walking distance of town too. The bedroom was really lovely, would love that in my own home!!

Well situated. About 20 minutes from all major spots in the area (whitianga, hotwater beach, whangamata etc). Very quiet and we felt safe. Tairua is a sleepy little town with good character. Nice fush n chups in the main town. Walking distance from this motel.

Lovely motel, room was a really high standard - nicer than a lot of hotels I've stayed in. Stayed in a Garden Chalet room which was nice and big with a cute garden. Great location too. Price was super reasonable and staff were really friendly. Stay here!

We stayed for 3 nights in March and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our very clean well appointed room was quite spacious with kitchen & eating area, sofa and TV with free WiFi and large comfortable bed. Just a short pleasant walk into town to great places to eat. Glenn was very helpful with suggested places to visit along with directions... More

It is true that the chalets are not particularly impressive from the outside, but inside they are surprisingly spacious and very well appointed. We particularly liked the large and comfortable bed. We had a delightful patio area featuring a shell bed and some lovely shrubs. Glenn, the owner, was extremely helpful in recommending places to visit and lent us the... More

Found this through booking.com before we travelled to NZ and upon arrival wished we'd allowed ourselves more time in the coromandel peninsula so we could have stayed for longer. The accommodation was first class and the location superbly beautiful. Plenty of nice places to eat only 5 mins attractive walk to a lovely quiet town. Highly recommended!

Loved our stay at this motel. Our room had a private courtyard. The owner was very informative and the housekeeper was helpful and polite. It is a short walk to the wharf and about 7 minutes walk into town. Would definately stay again.

This was a really nice, quiet motel, about a 5 minute walk from the restaurants and supermarkets, and only 200 metres from the foot ferry to Pauanui. We stayed in a one bedroom chalet with an extra large double bed. The chalet had clearly been recently refurbished to a high standard, and had a small kitchenette with microwave and a... More
