Believe it or not, we were booked into this hotel my mistake. This was not our first choice of hotel but we were so glad we ended up here. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment (AKA The Penthouse of Whakatane!!) The room was huge and plenty of room for all the rellies to drop in for a cuppa and... More

Stayed recently during the New Year period and would highly recommend to travellers. We were hosting by Sue (motel manager) who couldn't do enough to insure we were accommodated and looked after. Thank you Sue😊 - Your genuine customer service was appreciated.

We were surprised by the size of the room and en suite, they were quite spacious, certainly for the two of us. It was all you could ask, clean and modern. The only problem we had was that outside of our room (5), there was a table and chairs for guests, so you could hear their conversations in our room... More

Home when we returned to New Zealand after 5 years in Queensland. Acclimatised quickly and realised we are back home for good. Barrington motor lodge welcomed us to our new home. We liked the quiet yet central location that we rented a house in the same street thereafter

I travel all over the country with work, and Whakatane is one of my regular stops. Wherever I go I look for high quality accommodation at reasonable prices. For the last ten years I have used Barringtons exclusively when in the Whakatane area. The accommodation is clean, modern, spacious and comfortable. I think I've stayed in every room over the...

First time we have stayed here as we stay with the Asure Group when we can. We have found these motels have a very good standard and have never been disappointed. The parking here is a bit hit or miss by your unit as there is a small courtyard with table and chairs for smoking etc so takes up several... More

Here for business, room very spacious, exceptionally clean and great service from Sue. Also as a business traveller like the fact they have arrangements with a few restaurants for charge back facilities. Will look forward to visiting again.

We booked the Barrington because of the great reviews, we weren't disappointed! Spacious, clean and convenient. Sue the manager is a gem and so helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here, the price was decent too.

Friendly and welcoming, large room with good kitchen facilities, all very modern and clean. This was the first motel room we had stayed in that had a washing line just around the corner of our room - we made full use of it! Would definitely stay here again if we were ever lucky enough to be in New Zealand again!

Arrived late in the day without a reservation. A wonderful, friendly greeting welcomed us to Whakatane and district (our first visit). Manageress could not have been more helpful with her local knowledge and suggestions for dining etc. Room was large, light, spotlessly clean, comfortable bedding and huge gleaming bathroom. What a credit to their staff!! Loved the modern, top quality... More
