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

We drove in late in the afternoon and wanted a place to stay that had views. We drove a hard bargain on the only room left, the most expensive room as it has water views. We we're not disappointed, the outdoor deck had lovely views over the water - shame we didn't get there earlier to enjoy more of them.... More

After a hectic drive in pouring rain through the Coromandel Penunsula we were disappointed as we missed visiting Cathedral Cove. However our overnight stay at Tairua Shores was excellent. Very friendly folks and a comfy room helped us rest and replan and make up for the ground we had lost. The room was very clean and the bed was nice.... More

We spent 2 nights here & really enjoyed. As in other reviews the owner was so helpful giving us planning tips, gear to take with us( like the shovels for the hot beach). We had been on the road so was appreciative of the free washer, lines for drying clothes. Unit was well equipped . We would definitely recommend.
