Marie, We just want to complement your family for the excellent facilities that we enjoyed. The 2nd day of rest whilst the group toured was relaxing beside the pool with a cuppa & the lunch that was presented to us as a surprise. The room was spacious, comfortable mattress, spotlessly clean with fresh linen & towels. Make no mistake IF... More

We stayed 2 nights at Breakers Motel and were given the warmest welcome ever! Marie was wonderful and even gave us a choice of apartments. She showed us where everything was and offered suggestions for eating out, plus gave plenty of information on local attractions. Our apartment was on the ground floor with loads of space, fully fitted kitchen/diner, separate... More

My wife and myself stayed here for only two nights before catching a flight back to the UK. This is a nice motel with an inviting swimming pool to relax by after a long day sight seeing. The room we had was clean and served our needs well. The most endearing feature of this Motel is it's staff. Marie the... More

Terrific large room with spa tub inside and hot tub on private patio. Pool so close we could sit on our patio and dip our feet in the water. Great location in a lovely seaside town. And extremely helpful management.

We last stayed at the Breakers 4 years ago and loved it. We have just been back and it is still excellent. Lovely rooms and very friendly people. Getting breakfast things delivered the previous night made for flexibility in planning days out.

Spotless, comfortable, and the owner Marie is one of the kindest people I have met. It’s a great value compared to other tired options which aren’t much if at all cheaper. The pool is a huge plus and you can walk to the surf beach. Book in advance a few weeks from January to March as its no secret.

This is a very nice hotel, very spacious rooms, good pool and nice balcony spa. However although it was only a ten minute walk from town, it was a bit of a nuisance in terms of just ducking off to the beach etc etc. There are not many hotels in Whanga but I would probably stay closer to town next...

Our family of four had been looking forward to our overnight stay at Whangamata and had pre booked a family unit at Breakers. We were taken to our unit and were very impressed with it. However this was short-lived as the woman who showed us to our room informed us that there was a smell in the kitchen which she... More

Always up for a quick weekend escape from Auckland, Whangamata was an obvious choice being a pleasant two and half hours drive - (via Paeroa, Karangake Gorge and Waihi). We arrived at 'Breakers' to a warm greeting and taken to our spacious nicely decorated room. Although there are some rooms with spa baths, I was more than happy to have... More

Great motel, very clean large room; cooking facilities, dining table etc. Good sized swimming pool, but had to grit my teeth to get in as it was 'solar heated' - for that read cold! There were people watching so I had to do it! Staff were very welcoming. Motel is within easy walking distance of the estuary where we saw... More
