We had the pleasure of staying with Peter and Cheryle (owners operators) on a recent trip from melbourne... We were blessed with room 9 which was very clean tidy and functional (tv, stove top, tea and coffee, hot pressured showers :-) our room had its own balcony which directly overlooked the historical falls (when you get a chance talk to Peter as he is knowledgeable about the heritage and culture of the area and has some great stories and pictures to share) my favorite spot would have to have been the large picnic table on the bottom level that over looked the falls, private beach and Waitangi walking track. The sound of the roaring falls though out our stay instilled a sense of clam and serenity! Magical!!!! More so due to being winter. Our 14 year old was kept busy with access to a playstation, kayaks, trampoline and Peter kindly arranged a trip on the Mac attack eliminating all stress of a stimulating trip away!! It is obvious that this place is nurtured and cared for by a family that take an interest in your comfort and stay, we have arranged a trip back for Christmas and can only imagine that this place will impress us further while enjoying it alongside a kiwi summer... See you soon falls motel! The Johnston family.
