We decided to stay in Mangonui, drove into town, and found this motel opposite the harbour and within walking distance from restaurants, cafes and other shops. Very comfortable and the managers very friendly. We look forward to our next visit.

Very comfortable bed and a full kitchen. Centrally located with an easy walk to nearby bars and restaurants. Room was very quiet even though it is close to the road. Safe off-street parking is available.

This motel has really to be seen to be believed. The rooms are very clean, well thought out and the view from the window was out of this world. To have a morning cup of tea watching the sun rise over Mangonui harbour is an experience that cannot be missed. For value for money apart from anything else, this place... More

We stopped in Mangonui to eat dinner on a rainy night during a road trip and decided to look for a place to stay to get out of the heavy rain. It was around 8pm and the owner attended to us right away and took us inside from the rain. She was interested in knowing about us and was pleasant... More

Our lively hosts couldn't do enough for us on our quest for a motel with Sky TV. When we returned Skyless, the lovely apartment they had showed us was still available so we settled in happily for the rest of the day. These older NZ motels are often great value, as the rooms are usually very spacious, with full kitchens... More

Great location and price. Hosts made you feel very welcome. Would stay there again as it was very quite and the road was the only thing that separated you from the sea. Lovely little shops in the area. Teresa and Peter. Taranaki

The gorgeous hosts really made this place, and then the view - the sunrise was magical. So affordable, with everything you need. A beautiful location, and the best fish 'n' chip joint I've been to. Can't wait to return. Thank you for the memory!

Great location at a great price. Only the road separates you from the harbour. You could see the sun rise across the harbour from your lounge. Big lounge/dining area and comfortable seating. Good off street safe parking or park in front. Mattress was a bit tired and soft. The shower was raised and a bit difficult to get in with... More

I would definitely recommend staying at Esquire Motel. Kathy and Jeff were nice hosts and went out of there way to help us. We borrowed their fishing rods and they gave us some bait for free. The apartment has everything you need and a comfortable bed. The only thing I would say is the decor could do with an update... More
