Room was spacious and clean. There was a large veranda with table and chairs looking out over the bay. Stay was very solicitous and upgraded our room. It was worth the 8 km drive off of SH1 to stay here before pushing off to the Auckland airport - much better than staying at an airport hotel. It gave us one... More

We booked this last minute when we realized we didn't want to stay in Auckland another night as planned. I'm glad we did. The owners were away and had friend's watching the place who were just lovely. They gave us tea on arrival and were very welcoming. The room was really comfortable and clean. I loved the location, it was... More

I stayed in the Manly room which is a deluxe suite and it was fantastic. There was some road noise but it wasn't excessive, overall it was a very quiet and peaceful location. Beach access across the road was great and it was within easy walking distance of shops. The owners were most helpful and friendly which was nice. The... More

We stayed here for one night before a trip to Tiritiri Island. We were a bit unlucky, as most of the hotel was booked by a big and rather noisy wedding party that day. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, and the kitchen was very well equipped. There was a lovely big balcony facing the sunset. Troy and Tomoko... More

Top class accommodation with a personal touch. Beautiful setting. Our host Troy knowledgable. Sunrise and Manly Beach an experience adding to our stay. Restaurants and shops nearby with Gulf Harbour and Shakespeare less than 6 km away. All in all perfect for a weekend breakaway or longer.

Planning our kid free weekend of relaxation and much needed mum and dad quiet time we decided to book again with Troy and Tomoko. This was our second stay and didn't hesitate to stay again and not take the gamble of booking a room that could be a 2 star crusty place in some random hotel elsewhere. Once again a... More
