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

A warm, clean, tidy, quiet, spacious room. The only issue I found was that the bathroom didn't have enough lighting. There was a blown bulb, but even with all lights working, I'm not sure it would have improved it much. However, I'd definitely stay again!

The standards in this motel are certainly above the typical found for motels. Rooms are spacious and modern, with excellent showers and kitchen facilities. We stayed in and easy access unit, with wet room shower, and basic kitchen but thsi was better than some which puport to offer full kitchen facilities. We would recommend this to anyone

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.
