Stayed for 1 night. Very quick check in. Large, modern room and it was surprisingly quiet. Best of all was the free Wi-Fi. Why most motels don't include this cost as part of their running costs I can't work out. I'll be certain to make this my accommodation by choice when working in Whakatane

This was a fantastic find or a motel. It was super comfortable, fantastic room and facilities, as well as staff who are really friendly and take great care of the premises. It's really close to everything you need so it was really easy to find a place to eat at night, but as I didn't eat the breakfast ththat was... More

Only stayed one night over Christmas after doing the White Island tour. This is a very modern and clean motel. The room was a generous size which includes a couple of chairs which is always nice in a studio room. The bathroom was also a great size and everything was impeccably clean. I did laundry whilst there, cost $5 which... More

Don't look anywhere else, this is the place to stay. Lovely rooms, clean and modern. We only stay one night, next time we will come for longer. It is a quite place probably not for large families. The room feel like a hotel more than a motel.

We stayed here as we were swimming with the dolphins the following morning in Whakatane. It was very good location and easy to find. The room was of very high standard and the place was spotless. Had a great nights sleep and if I happened to be in around this area again I definitely would stay here again.

The room was spacious, very modern and clean, with a beautiful bathroom including a spa bath. The gentleman at reception was very friendly and helpful and no-one rushed us out of our room in the morning despite us running over an hour late (we had been on a helicopter trip to White Island). I would definitely recommend staying here.

Comfortable, well equipped, quality accommodation, if a little pricey. Excellent, friendly service. Outside seating area a little disappointing and worth noting that it's located about 20 minutes walk to town. All in all a very comfortable stay. Probably ideal for the executive traveler.

Pulled into this hotel initialliy thinking, this likes nice from the outside. When we drove through past the reception, I have to admit that even though the outside of the rooms were very well presented, I couldn't help but think that this was 'just another hotel'. But I was very happy with what I was greeted with inside the room.... More

On arriving on the Labour Day weekend, Matt gave my wife and I a free upgrade to a corner suite to save the girls on cleaning such a large space every day and we really scored. It was MASSIVE! It felt like we were in a small modern house, with a huge combined lounge-dining- kitchenette area with 4-5m high ceiling.... More
