“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

We stayed for 2 nights in february 2012. Lovely owners who even did our washing ( the guest machine was 'playing up') very clean, the spa was wonderful. We have just returned after travelling for 8 weeks and this is one of the most welcoming hotels we stayed in, our little bit of paradise. The facilities in the hotel were ideal and the super Market a 5 minute walk away. Hopefully - if funds allow- we will return.

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms exit to the pool, upstairs views of the pool and a spa on the balcony

Visiting our daughter in Auckland for a three week holiday touring NZ from Scotland booked Breakers by good reviews on Trip Adviser was not disapointed Marie went out of her way to make our stay perfect and my daughter even got use of the motels canoe . Breakers is a short walk to local shops and restaurants with plenty of variety. the beach walk only a few minutes away was awesome can not wait to go back.

We stayed there just this weekend gone. Lovely receptionist and a great set up for the children with a playground around the corner from our unit. Breakers reminds me of the gold coast, very modern, very clean and a gorgeous lay out with the pool just outside the unit doors.
This is my new favourite place and we will be going back to Breakers in the summer.
I highly recommend it!!!

Stayed for one night only in a poolside ground floor studio. Nicely laid out, spacious and clean, with the pool literally just outside the door. Lovely hosts and staff. Short drive or 5 - 10 minute walk to the centre of town and local beaches. Had a very comfortable stay.

Thank you Marie and Doug for a lovely stay. We really appreciated having such lovely people to talk to who made us feel so welcome, and were happy to help at any time at the drop of a hat. The rooms are tidy, clean, and well appointed. The Motel is nice and quiet, and it was nice to have a pool that catered for preschoolers as well as the adults! No doubt we will be seeing you again some time!

Room Tip: If you have young children you may wish to request a room that doesn't open onto the pool (we di...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, which was spacious and very clean. Hadn't stayed here for some years, so found the complex a little dated. The unit was a bit tired/worn with age, e.g., the bathroom with the marble tiling on the walls was a bit much, and some of the window latches throughout the unit were hanging off so the windows couldn't be shut properly. Our QS bed mattress is due for replacement as it had bad roll-together and was generally uncomfortable. The spa pool on the deck, though nice to be able to use, was a little worse for wear swith cracks etc and should probably be upgraded soon. Friendly service at arrival and departure. The kids loved the swimming pool and spent a lot of time it in!
