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

This was our first visit to Whakatane and staying at a Barringtons Motor Lodge. Sue was extremely helpful, during the booking process over the phone, upon our arrival and though out our stay. Some positives: the room was huge and had the necessary basic kitchenware for our stay (although our room did not have cooking facilities). Free wi-fi which was... More

Only a short stay here but well worth it. Very friendly and helpful owners too. Rooms are spacious and clean. Nice selection of tea sachets too. A very comfortable stay and would recommend to friends.

Arrived at Barringtons late one afternoon without a pre-arranged booking. Was warmly greeted by manageress Sue. We were taken to our studio room at the rear of the motel. That's service! Thankfully we were at the back of the motel as Barringtons is on a very busy road. Our room was huge, very clean and well appointed. However later in... More

This motel was very clean and comfortable but not luxurious. It suited our needs well as I have to be able to make my own food as I have lots of food intolerances. There was a handy little hob, microwave and fridge which was quite adequate for my needs. The manageress was helpful and friendly. Wifi was free. I would... More

Very nice little motel. Stayed in a studio room, which was huge, clean and very comfortable. No road noise at all. Very quiet. Great location. Great rates. Will be back on our next visit, for sure. 👍

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.
