We were very pleasantly surprised by Barringtons. Sue was very friendly and accommodating and helped our large party of 9 (across three separate units) settle in quickly. The rooms were clean, well-equipped and amply stocked with cutlery and crockery. The free Wifi was the cherry on top. I would recommend this very highly for accommodation in Whakatane.

My husband and I stayed at this Motel for 5 nights. It was very modern, clean and comfortable and the owners were very friendly and helpful. On the down side, there was a barbeque, but no real barbeque area. There was a seating area with a table and umbrella in one corner of the carpark which was not very inviting... More

This is a really great place to stay. The rooms are a large, well presented and kept spotlessly clean . Sue the manager is always smiling and all the staff can't do enough for you. We stayed 6 nights and found the whole experience great. Within a 10 minute walk of the nearest shops and petrol station. Main shops need... More

We were very happy with our stay at Barringtons. We have stayed at other motels in Whakatane but for comfort and facilities at a reasonable price this place wins hands down. Scrupulously clean with good service and friendly staff, the unit itself was spacious and well appointed with a super comfy bed, kitchen and big bathroom. Decor was stylish within... More

Me and my family stayed here last weekend and I must say it was the nicest place we have ever stayed in. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was spacious, well equipped but above all, CLEAN! Oh and I almost forgot, free wifi! We definitely will be staying here again the next time we are in Whakatane.... More

I'll admit. The number 1 reason I chose Barringtons was the free WIFI. But I got a fabulous room - that had a purely magical shower - and all the conveniences of home. The WIFI is unlimited, and doesn't require extra purchase. The service was spectacular, and everything was clean and tidy.
