Colleague and I arrived here in the dark after a busy day of travel then work. Were warmly welcomed. Place clean and tidy. Heater got the room temperature up quickly. Not sure how well it would have heated the full unit although I did spot a heater in the second bedroom. Think the large bed in the main room would... More

Multiple family members joined us at the motel for a family occasion in Waihi. The capacity to have a private room that other adults in the family could use in our unit was great for us. The rooms and beds were warm and comfortable. It's not 5 star but it did just nicely for us.

I have stayed in both of the motels in Waihi. The Waihi Motel is more expensive, and slightly nicer decor than the other one. There was some traffic noise, but it was not too bad (it did not keep me awake). Car parking was free. There was a heater in the room. The kitchenette came furnished with basic cutlery and... More

A night with work. A place to lie my head and have a shower. I wouldn't want to have had to stay more than a night. The room smelt so damp that it woke me up in the night and sticking my head under the sheet didn't help. Being on the bottom floor and main road I didn't feel safe... More

My heart sank as we arrived - this motel is RIGHT ON the main road.Our room did have double glazing, but on a hot day that left things pretty stuffy. The place is older style and not very attractive, but it is well equipped, with comfy beds and pretty spacious. They really need to put in Air-con so that the... More

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
