“STUNNING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Stunning was my wife's verdict when she entered our motel room & saw the view. This is an excellent location for a short stay with very good clean well-equipped accommodation, friendly hostess & a great position - the coromandel peninsula is outstanding.
One extra comment - you MUST get snapper & chips from Coromandel takeaway - arguably the best fish & chips I have ever had (this is a brit speaking!).

We really enjoyed our one night stay at this cozy little hotel. Easy to park right in front of your room. Well appointed comfortable rooms, clean, quiet, beautiful sweeping views from room, excellent value for the money. We couldn't ask for anything more and would recommend at least 2 nights to relax and enjoy if you can (we just did one night).

This hotel was just perfect for a romantic getaway!! We arrived late but we were accommodated without any issues, maps and ideas left for us to peruse to take in the sights!! We had great sleep, the area just beautiful and relaxing... We were saying we would go back just to be able to stay a week in the area!

The private balcony, view to the harbour (tho we were a bit taken back bc tide was out when we first went outside but we were sure we had heard the water lapping up against the edges most of the night lol)

A dear little old-fashioned NZ motel, with everything you could possibly need provided. Clean, comfortable, private. Great location, just a short walk to town (or a 5 minute drive). Owner was so friendly and kind, and Coromandel Town itself is so relaxed and laid-back, that we almost didn't want to leave!

We wanted to see more of the excellent Coromandel peninsula - so booked a couple of nights at the Harbour view Motel ..... Big mistake - it should have been a week or two! The motel overlooks the small bays that go to make up Coromandel harbour and you get I see spectacular sunsets. The units are massive and very well equipped.

There are bicycles and canoes that can be borrowed and a spa pool round the back of the motel to soak aching muscles afterwards ..... Do take them up on the offer of the canoes - it took us about an hour to paddle across the bay and back with views that you won't see elsewhere (and the chance to wade in mud if you time the tide wrong). Also take the Kauri block walk 40 minutes into town, eat & drink then walk back. Wonderful views from the Pa site in the middle.

So much to do - and only booked 2 days... So will have to come back

This motel has a wonderful quiet location overlooking the old harbour and bay. The rooms were clean and well equipped. The hosts were very friendly and helpful especially telling us about the lovely walk into town. The scenery and walks are amazing locally. Check out the fish and chips on the Motel side of town .. they were the best we had in NZ.
