The location is excellent. The road entrance is off the main road but the motel has a back entrance onto... More

We stayed over Queens Birthday Weekend and all that was available was a 2 bedroom unit which we didn't need but it was lovely totally refurbished and modernised, warm and very comfortable. Very different from our last visit and now has new owners. A short stroll to the centre of Matakana Village so it's perfect. Certainly worth another visit in... More

Handy location but basic accommodation. Room was basic as were the amenities - no sink in the kitchenette. King size bed was two mattresses joined together making an uncomfortable bed. We were also unlucky to have a neighbour who was entertaining/wooing till late - lack of sound proofing meant we were kept "entertained" until late..... Location was great - handy... More

The motel was very clean, its quiet, and very close to everything, so you can have a few wines and walk home at night. Beds comfortable and the staff are very friendly and helpful, would definately go back there again.

We were really happy with our unit, it was spotless and attractively decorated, lovely pool area and super wee playground for our grandson. The added bonus was that the motel ix so centrally located you can walk... More

Stayed in a 2 bed apartment with family of 5. Compact spaces but everything we needed at a fair price. Very clean bathroom and the beds very comfortable. We also used the laundry which was $2 per load and free dryer - good to have when you're travelling with kids. Excellent location within Matakana. A short stroll through the carpark... More

Lovely staff, kind enough to let us check in an hour early... Beautiful room, extra bonus if you have the spa bath. Spacious room. Modern and tidy throughout the room. Fantastic location, leave your car parked at the motel and walk to the village in 3mins!!
