We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2013 on our honeymoon, our room was massive (we got 2 bedrooms!) the view of the sea was stunning. Aileen was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We booked our jet skiiing activities through the motel which was helpful. There are some lovely resturants we went to including the Waterfront, and The Pier (amazing location over the sea!) Fantastic spot for exploring the Bay of Islands.
