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.

What lovely hosts and fantastic accommodation. The room was spotless and well equipped - everything we needed was there. We were made to feel very welcome and were so well looked after that we will be recommending Barringtons as a top place to stay in Whakatane. Clean, warm, awesome spa bath, Sky TV, close to everything - what more could... More

We stayed one night here and had a lovely time. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The room was great with a separate living area, great kitchenette for making breakfast, spa bath and separate shower. There is even a tv on the bedroom which is great when you are traveling with kids who are asleep in the other room!... More

We stayed one night at Barrington's and had a great experience. Sue at the front desk was very welcoming and great for a chat. There's a lot of info for tourists in reception and I noticed they had won a Tripadvisor award too! The room itself (1 bedroom suite) was spacious and so clean and well presented. Everything we needed... More

We stayed two nights here. Our room had a well-appointed kitchen, a comfortable living room, a bedroom with a very comfortable bed, and a spotless bathroom. The owners was friendly and helpful. A grocery store was within walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay here.

I am a rep and spend every other week away from home travelling around the central part of the North island. It has taken me some time and many motels to find the ones that suit my needs best. Ian and Maxine are great hosts and take that extra step, like turning your room heater on prior to your arrival... More

We spent a pleasant enough night at this motel with clean accommodation, friendly staff and good location. The only problem we had was the lack of fans as it was an extremely hot and humid night. This was the only motel we came across that didn't have a fan tucked away in a cupboard somewhere. All of that aside, it... More

We do apologies for no fan in your room. We do have enough fans for every room plus extras but somehow your room didnt have one in it. We take them out and clean them regulary and it must have been missed being put back. Hopefully this wont happen again. Thanks for your review. More
