5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

A modern clean and very comfortable motel which appeared to be brand new despite being a few years old. Owner very helpful and was happy to advise on local amenities. Only slight downside was we needed to drive into town to get something to eat. Would very much recommend this motel for a stay in Whakatane.

This motel is wonderful. New decor; very tidy; air conditioning (which was a saviour on a hot humid night); very reasonably priced ($149) for studio unit; 'real' coffee (in a coffee bag similar to a tea bag.. great idea)... would highly recommend to all 😊

This motel was easy to find and parking is right outside the room. The room was very modern and looked smart. The owners have made very good use of the space. We had a twin with two comfortable double beds with a good TV. The kitchen area was well equipped with modern equipment, including a kettle, tea/coffee making facilities, etc... More

This hotel is the only hotel on our recent trip to NZ where we would not stay again. It wasn't terrible, just not good enough to stay again. Room: the room was comfortable and quiet. Two items in the bathroom were very dirty, and made us question the overall cleanliness of the property. I've included photos below of the exhaust... More

Jason G, Owner at 37 The Landing Motel, responded to this review

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I was a little disappointed to read it as we pride ourselves on our cleanliness and we score quite highly in other reviews. The bathroom fans are cleaned regularly and as they are quite high we do not allow our staff to climb on the furniture to reach them for safety... More

We stayed for three nights between Christmas and New Year in a two bedroom, self catering apartment. It was clean spacious perfectly appointed and had everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. Good location on the way in to town. Friendly and professional proprietor. We'll definitely be back to lovely Whakatane and we'll definitely be staying here.

We spent a night there recently and it did all the things a newish motel should. Our room was tidy and clean, the wifi was fine, the bed was comfortable with nice linen and we had no complaints. It is easy to find and in a group of motels. Whakatane turned out to be nice place to go shopping so... More

I have stayed at the "37 The Landing Motel" on a number of occasions and I wouldn't go anywhere else in Whakatane unless I was unable to get a room here, I have stayed at many others in Whakatane until I found this one, and I must say the quality of the rooms are 10 out of 10 all day... More

Stayed with a friend and we had a family unit with double and single beds in one room and another single bed in the main living area. The unit had a modern and luxurious feel to it and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was large and modern with a twin spa bath plus separate shower. We had a... More
