My daughter and I stayed here over the summer school holidays. We only stayed one night but found the room very clean and comfortable. It was a good location close to the shops. It was a drive to the beach really. Room didn't have air con but had a fan. Luckily I also took a little portable one with me... More

Came here on a business trip, received quality service! The room itself was equipped with everything I needed. Off street car parking which was a bonus! The room was clean and had a homely effect. Would highly recommend to anybody after accommodation in Whangamata. If travelling through the area again, i would definitely stop here! Thanks for the stay!

We stayed for three nights. Very soft bed. The bathroom was cramped. It was difficult to open the shower door if the door to the bathroom was closed. Bathroom was out dated. The wood frame of the sink was coming apart. Friendly staff and proximity to downtown could not make up for disappointing room. Limited WiFi.

Looked nice but standard queen room appallingly uncomfortable, cheap innerspring bed, both saggy and bouncy with maximum partner disturbance. Would not provide fresh milk when asked, only directed to UHT, fridge wasn't cold, no free wifi offered, no tissues in room and man at reception looked surprised to think this could be assumed- poor value for money.

So we stayed here a night in August to get out of the city. The hosts were really nice. We had a room upstairs in what they call the lodge. Its been recently redecorated & that was nice although the fittings were all crooked. Now there's no mirror in the room, only the bathroom & there's no curtain/blind in the... More

Situated on main street of Whangamata.Unit quiet, clean & tidy but missing light bulb & non working bedside lamp was our only complaint. Handy to Whangamata Club & across the road from the local RSA. Friendly hosts

Studio Double - very clean, hosts were very friendly, off-street parking, modern amenities including a split system air-conditioning unit. On the main road, therefore a little noisy however close the window, set the temperature on the split system and you get a good nights sleep. Our room was upstairs, so it was a little bit difficult lugging our suitcases up... More
