A favorite place of mine to stay out of town! Friendly staff, great rooms. Always willing to give me a room when I need one. Always clean and tidy and always smiles when you arrive. Would recommend to all!

We had booked for 4 and expected 2 rooms but in fact one couple had to sleep in the couch... The rooms were small but clean. The beds were good. Unfortunately the toilets were in the bathroom. The surroundings were OK.

My partner and I stayed at the Southpacific Motel for its proximity to a nearby wedding venue in Opoutere. Our host was very friendly and helpful, providing not only a wonderful and clean room, but also local knowledge of the surrounding area. I recommend this motel for anyone staying within the the Coromandel area, or who is looking to experience... More

Whangamata is a great place with beautiful new harbour and lovely beach. We stayed at Southpacific and found the staff extremely friendly and great facilities. Rooms were very spacious and very clean. Would recommend to anyone.

The host was very friendly despite having a big conference the next day. My room was lovely and comfortable with a modern interior finish. The shower has no equal. It was awesome! I didnt really take advantage of the location due to sleeping early with such a comfortable bed!

The room was lovely, and the service made our stay perfect. Very helpful staff made us feel at home - friendly and welcoming, gave us detailed information on the full range of dining establishments available, and other advice about the town. The motel isn't really within walking distance of the beach, which is not a problem unless you have walked... More

Rent och fräscht med sköna sängar och snygg design. Trevlig ägare och personal. Bra placering längs med huvudgatan och inte långt från den fantastiska stranden. Vi var tre vuxna som kunde dela rum och det hade fått plats minst en vuxen till. Clean, fresh with comfortable beds and nice modern design. Friendly owner and staff. Good location on high street...

Self and spouse stayed here on the first night of a 7-night trip so it was important being the first night after leaving home. The motel turned out to be something of a pleasant surprise and different from other stays of other days. The gravel parking was itself unusual – if there is insufficient space, same is plentiful on the... More

We found the host welcoming, although he was just back off holiday and things were a little disorganised. He told us about the rsa across the road. It was good for dinner. All true. The room was very nice - clean modern. The downside was we got bitten by mozzies. We had a lovely egg on toast breakfast and went... More

We had originally booked for one night and quickly extended this to two nights. The motel is ideally located within walking distance on the main road through the town centre with all restaurants, shops and bars in easy walking distance (less than 5 minutes). The unit we stayed in was quite small but beautifully clean and comfortable. The staff we... More
