We stayed here for one night and was surprized it was much nicer than the photos. Very clean and comfortable. Good quality furniture and comfortable bed. Nice looking out at their beautiful gardens. Would certainly stay again.

This 2 bedroom unit was more like the size of a house! Great value, very clean free wifi and lots of room. Nice quiet area and the owners helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would be happy to recommend this motel especially if you can stay a couple of days.

Hobson's choice, but i'd choose to stay there again. The rooms were clean, and spacious. Breakfast was layed out in our rooms the night before. We were a group of 35 and everyone agreed that this was a good place to stay.

We booked a studio unit for one night. The room was large, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom good. Quiet location only a short walk into the town. The only thing that wasn't great about this motel was the kitchen. There were hot plates that you could plug in for cooking if you were keen, but they looked like... More

Our intention was to stay just one night here on our way north, but the sheer attractiveness of the place prompted us to book a further night. The units were very well thought out, providing comfort and taste. The small swimming pool contained seeds from the trees, but we were assured that the chlorine levels were OK. Wifi was free,...

We stayed one night. The reception was not welcoming but was efficient in the sense of giving us our key and directing us to the room. The room was a spacious concrete block motel room. Reasonably well appointed in terms of satellite TV and kitchen facilities. Bathroom was not too cramped shower over bath. The armchairs looked like they needed... More

We arrived here late in the day having looked at the outside of another motel and decided to see what else was on offer. We had been staying in holiday house style accommodation ("Baches") but decided to stop in Dargaville because we had run out of time to get to a more tourist location. Our first impression was uncertainty -... More

to be fair in this review I have to say we changed our travel plans a couple of times. we were booking for a group and the rules kept changing from our point of view. At one stage we had 5 units booked then it turned out we only needed 3 so it was pretty confusing for an already confused... More

Passing through Dargaville on our way to Kauri country, we stopped here for the night as the motel was on the way out of town. We were the only guests that night and the owner did not make us feel welcome. The motel runs between two roads and one side is signed better than the other. However, the room was... More

We were brought here by our support crew while taking part in the (cycling) Tour of New Zealand. When I checked out the hotel options on line I have to say that I feared for this one but it turned out better than I expected. As the only couple on our tour minibus we were given the largest room at... More
