“Great motel to stay when visiting Bay of Islands”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The motel is at the far end, set back from the beach and bars but only a 5-10 minute walk from then and 10 minutes to the wharf/pier. Each unit has a parking space outside, and the roomy kitchen/diner area has a microwave, 2-ring hob and fridge. The communal facilities are very good and they include a small outdoor swimming, a very warm and relaxing hot tub, BBQ and a fully equipped laundry rom with washers, dryers and ironing facilities. The owner are very helpful and a mine of useful information. There are café/bars nearby and a couple of superettes (convenience stores) and the Countdown supermarket is a 30 minute walk or 20 minute drive away.

Room Tip: Most units are ground floor so ask for one of those if you have mobility issues, or heavy cases.

Excellent motel worth the money. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Will definitely recommend this motel. Well worth the drive from Auckland to have a nice place to relax and wind down. The rooms are quite clean with all amenities.

My wife and I really enjoyed this place despite the fact that on the days we were there the weather was not the best. The staff were very helpful and provided some nice suggestions for places to go and see. Value for money was pretty good also.

What a gem, very clean, modern to New Zealand's style, providing well equip kitchen, a communal laundry, BBQ facilities, nice walk to town, we have four nights here to base ourselves for the many things the bay of Islands have to offer, can highly recommend this, more than a Motel

Room Tip: We had rooms 14 & 15 at rear ground floor just a bit further away for privacy, not that you real...

Upstairs serviced Unit was Great. Staff are very friendly and professional. Within 50 metres of the beach and 5 minutes walk to the restaurant area and main jetty. Well worth staying at for your next visit.

Stayed December 2012

We stayed first week of December for 5 nights. The upstairs room without a/c was large with separated bedroom and living area. The outside facilities of pool and seating/BBQ were excellent. The staff very friendly and helpfull, and daily room service was tops. Quality as we remember it in a great location, only short walk to shops and restaurants.
Highly recommended and great value for money paid.

Room Tip: One bedroom rather than studios are the way to go! space to burn.

Only 50 yards from the beach, this is a really comfortable stay. Helpful staff but could do with a little more in the way of heating outside of the summer season.
Stayed in a two bedroom apartment with good self catering facilities.
