We only stayed here for one night, but it was a nice little motel. The staff were helpful and made us feel welcome on arrival. The only negative for me was that it was just a tad too far out of the town of Coromandel. You could in theory have walked from the town back to the motel, but I... More

Many thanks for your comments. Just a note for any would-be guests : both the "Top Pub"- Coromandel Hotel, and the "Bottom Pub" - Star and Garter offer a free pick-up, and drop-back service if guests choose to drink/dine with them. I apologise if we didn't tell you about this, and will add it to the information in our compendium.... More

# The owner of the motel was very kind and showed us the activities around the places. # The room was very tidy and slightly larger than any other model we have ever been. # The motel is right next to the sea and view of sunset was fantastic. # Wireless Internet was fast and reliable for checking emails and...

We stayed here in November 2007, had a fantastic break, pleasant clean accomodation and superb views to wake up to . A welcome break in a busy schedule, would have loved to stayed for longer than we did. Hosts Angela and Ian very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Organising trips etc.

My family only had one night to spend at the Harbour View, and we would very much like to return sometime for a longer stay. After a scenic two hour drive from Auckland Int'l Airport, we were warmly greeted by Angela, who immediately gave us many helpful tips on what to see and do, and options for dining (somewhat limited...

Good views from a very spacious room. Owners are very helpful. The motel block is obviously old and there has been some work undertaken to try and bring it into the 21st century. It doesn’t take long to see its age though, eg the cupboards in the mini kitchen area give a 50s, 60s feel. It was clean and we... More

Thank you for your comments. The motel was built to a timeless design in the late 70’s, and has been through many upgrades over the years. The kitchen cabinets are now next on our list of “to-do‘s“. Regards, Angela More

After reading previous reviews, we were really excited about coming to Coromandel. Well, we arrived in rain and it poured the whole time we were there. We thought the room was okay - certainly nothing special as others thought. We felt it was dated and the walls were thin. We kept hearing the person in the next room coughing. The... More

We appreciate your comments, though we were sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy your stay in Coromandel. In reply to your comment re the “thin walls’, this was a real surprise to us, as the walls are 8inch thick solid concrete. We have taken on board your comments re the cost of a load of washing for $5.00, and will... More

Stayed here for 1 night during our travel through the Coromandel. Upon arrival we knew we wanted to stay longer. The rooms were excellent and the view from the balcony unforgettable. It's truly a gem in the coromandel. The best hotel we stayed in during our trip. Angela arranged two tours directly upon arrival, so excellent service. Would recommend it... More

This place was a real find. I sent email requesting a room, and they didn't have one in the main hotel but offered me two nights in the private bach house out back, basically a small, one room cabin overlooking the hotel. It was beautiful, clean, private, just perfect. It was incredibly relaxing. Additionally, you can take a short 20... More

We spent the first 2 nights of our 3 week visit to NZ at this motel - couldn't think of a better place to recover from the jetlag! Extremely comfortable, lovely verandah, charming and helpful caretaker hosts, stunning sunsets.
