We were greeted very warmly and given lots of information about the area. The room was roomy and comfortable with a great shower. We slept really well in comfortable bed. Would stay again if we were in this area.

Probably our best Motel experience in NZ. Great room, great bathroom Jacuzzi, heating in bathroom, everything is sparkling despite being opened in 2011. The property managers Tom & Pat are doing a great job. I hope they will one day own and operate their own motel. The only negative feedback would be the parking which was a little tight and... More

Business trip one night. Came in rather late but no issue. Room was warm and cozy on a cold freezing night! Room is immaculate and spotless. Very quite and felt safe. Great value for brand new accommodation!

Now stayed here a few times when visiting town for work. This is really a modern motel that is much better than a lot of hotels I have stayed in here in NZ. Same as all the other reviews - there is no better place to stay when visiting Whakatane. I used to stay at another motel in town when... More

Matt met us on arrival and is a very personable host, nothing was too much trouble and we booked into 1 bdrm apartment. It was spacious very clean and everything worked. Would recommend this to everyone whilst in Whakatane this is surely the best.

Great service and very modern and large rooms - recommend this hotel to anyone. Service was exceptional nothing was a problem and good knowledge of the area as I had never been to Whakatane. We will be back.

This place delivers exactly what it claims it does - it's wonderfully new and modern, functional and surgically clean. Matt is as cheerful and welcoming a host as you could wish for and very helpful. The in-room motel guide to services and local attractions is bang up to date and still in perfect condition. Of critical importance, the beds are... More

Thanks Matt who is an excellent very welcoming host who from our 1st email contact to check out was very professional & ever so obliging. I hope Jason reads these accolades about you & not... More

Amazing service by Matt. He is the main reason I keep going back. Clean and modern rooms, always stay there when I travel to Whakatane . A must to visit and location nice and central. I stay in many hotels around NZ and service is key for repeat business.

This is a fantastic motel. For some reason I was expecting it to be old, but it is quite the contrary - modern, sleek, shiny, air conditioned, spotless and oh so comfortable. Shame about the dreary dark grey the exterior is painted! We ignored that and focussed on our one bedroom apartment which was extremely spacious - you could spend... More
