The rooms are OK for the price, but the advertised free WiFi was all but useless in our room. Being told to sit in front of another room and wave my laptop about until I had a signal didn't help. Likewise pointing out that the TV remote didn't work elicited a rant about guests who push the wrong buttons. Turned... More

We stayed here a year ago in a one bedroom unit and this time stayed for four nights in the studio unit. The units are still immaculate and spotlessly clean. The studio kitchenette was a really good size compared to other studios in motels I have stayed. The bathroom had a huge shower and again was a great size for... More

Very well appointed unit with good space for all, modern style. The lounge, kitchen and dining room are large enough for a family. There is separate large bedroom with comfortable queen size bed, abundant pillows and and electric blanket. Great bathroom, immaculately clean and luxurious. Comfortable for two but the lounge is also a sofa bed so I guess you... More

This is a very good place to stay and well supports its price tag. Location is near the water and lends itself to easy walks to stretch those "travellers legs". The fit out of the unit is excellent and no shortcuts have been taken. The bed is extremely comfortable. The bathroom very well laid out and well appointed. The kitchenette... More

I've stayed in a lot of hotels throughout the country but this motel offers rooms that are better than so many of them. Perfectly located just out of the town centre but within an easy walking distance, and just two minutes from the marina and most beautiful stretch of the coast you'd ever wish to step foot on. Service and... More

We stayed here for five nights in December 2012. The motel rooms are absolutely spotless and is a good size for a couple. The kitchenette has everything you need for cooking and there is a good size sofa and TV. Our unit had a separate bedroom which was a good size for us. The bathroom had a good sized shower... More

A little bit out of the centre but near the harbour. A good 15/20 minutes walk to the shops and restaurants. Of all the motels I've stayed in in NZ on 3 trips this probably has the nicest rooms. Very modern, well thought out room layout, very clean and lovely bathroom. The owner provided helpful recommendations for restaurants and local... More

There is parking for one car and you walk to most places. The New World Supermarket is about 5-10 mins walk. The apartments are small, but well designed. The kitchen is well equipped. On a nice day, each apartment has its own grassy area to have a drink and enjoy the sun, particularly in the afternoon. There is also an... More

I was genuinely appalled at the demeanour and service provided by the Pipinui Motel. The staff were rude and inconsiderate and could have potentially cost us $1000s of dollars through their actions. I would not recommend staying here under any circumstances.
