My wife and I enjoyed our 5 night stay at Cook's Lookout Motel. Norm and Shelagh were very accomodating and helpful with great restaurant and sightseeing suggestions. We had our own car and getting to town for grocery shopping, etc. was convenient and just a few minutes away. The 90 Mile Beach/Cape Reinga and Bay of Islands tours picked us up and dropped us off right outside our suite...very convenient. Overall a great place to spend a few days in the Bay of Islands area.
