This is an older motel with 1960's/70'sfixtures and fittings, but the rooms are comfortable enough and clean. There isn't a huge amount of choices in Waihi accommodation wise. It is right on the main road so there is a little traffic noise, but it didn't keep me awake or anything. One plus is good kitchen facilities in my room had... More

We only stayed here one night, but it was not very great. My husband pointed out that the electrical outlets in the bathroom didn't really work properly (I'm not talking about the 220 v current, we knew about that). There was no heat in the bathroom, so we asked for a space heater and had to rig it up with... More

I arrived at Waihi Motel in the middle of a storm. The staff were very accommodating - allowed me immediate [early] access to a room to dry out. The facilities were great too, so clean and well equipped. Will definitely be returning. Wonderful service and facilities.

Great location with Countdown in the next block so easy to get groceries. The units are very clean and tidy and are well stocked with everything you need. Rooms were lovely and warm and the beds so comfortable and with electric blanklets which made for such a great sleep.

Three nights were spent in this property and we were more than satisfied. Our Unit 12 studio room was away from the other units which gave us additional privacy and reduced the noise from heavy traffic volumes. Having a sofa, wide TV, chair outside, added to the comfort. The place was spotless, great toilet / shower area with the shower... More

The room we got turned out to be a suite with king sized bed , t.v. chairs and a table, a full kitchen, a seperate shower and toilet,and an adjoining twin bedded room all spotless and just cost us 115 n z dollars. Definately value for money. Very pleasant lady in charge... More

Nice room, if a little dated. Fabulous shower. Easy walk to everything Waihi has to offer. Great value for the one night I stayed. Cost one hundred NZD for a studio unit for one night. Staff very friendly and helpful. Wifi supplied by zenbu.

While the staff were friendly and the rooms were fairly modern and tidy, we stayed in Unit 10 which felt like a cupboard which was not great on the hot muggy nights as there was one small window in the entire unit (no ranchslider) so very little ventilation. This is one unit that you see right into as soon as... More

The owner/manager was extraordinarily nice and welcoming. We were traveling by bicycle through Sherpa Bus who had ferried our baggage ahead of us. The motel happily accepted our baggage from Sherpa Bus before our arrival and stored it for us. They also allowed us to store our rental bicycles in their secure garage overnight. We really appreciated this. We were... More
