“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Just round from Coromandel town we by chance discovered this hidden gem. Fabulous water views, surrounded by native bush and birds it was a place we were sorry to only stay one night. Leanne and Des were fantastic hosts, giving loads of local information, nothing was too much trouble. Unit was very spacious, well equipped and spotless. Will definitely return sooner than later for a longer time. Totally recommended for the peace and quiet alone.

Room Tip: All units are great as all have the views and private balconies.

The one bed rooms are spacious, well equipped, comfy and clean, and best of all they have a great view over the harbour from a very private balcony. Sitting out on the balcony with a riot of NZ vegetation below us, squabbling tuis and amazing views was bliss.

If you like a walk, following the track over the hill into town brings even more great views.

Leanne couldn't have been more helpful and overall the motel is great value.

I would definitely recommend this place as it has a lot going for it:
1. Fabulous location overlooking the harbour
2. Spacious well equipped and clean rooms, comfy beds, great cooking facilities, well positioned & private balconies, quiet location etc etc
3. Very helpful hosts (Leanne & Des) who gave us lots of local advice, lent us a spade to dig at the hot water beach, gave us towels for the spa and would have even lent us their kayak if we had of had the energy!

Room Tip: All the rooms have harbour views

We stayed just for one night at the Harbour View, but the sunset was stunning and the rooms spacious.
Make sure to order breakfast and you will discover that Des is grateful since he gets one made for him too.
We will definitely be back on our next trip through the area

Stayed here for three nights on our recent trip to the Coromandel Peninsula - fab views across Coromandel Harbour from the deck, really clean rooms and good value for money. Leanne, the Manager, was really friendly, welcoming and great fun. Well recommended.

It was a stunning stay for us in coromandel. Rooms r big spacious n neat. The view from the room directly to the lake accross is the best part of it....there is a small spa at the motel which if u r not keen can b avoided...the owner seems to run the motel herself...n all the courtesy n help is extended....defenitly recommended!

Very comfortable place to stay, and the ONLY motel in town with a harbour view.
Spa onsite to chill out in.
Very good hosts.
Motel is located about 100 metres next to the oyster factory, which gets it's oysters FRESH from the farm across the road, which can be seen at low tide.

Very comfortable beds ensure a good nights sleep.
Very quite rooms.
