Would not agree with the previous negative reviews. We found this hotel to be really good. We were there for three nights. We had a room on the top floor facing the sea. The room was beautifully decorated, with exposed wooden beams, comfortable armchairs, large TV and nice balcony. The bed was extremely comfortable. We were given a fan upon...

This place is fine as somewhere to sleep, but otherwise it's very basic, reminds me of motels in the 1970's. Get the feeling it's being run on a shoestring as it appeared to be up for sale. Would look around a bit more next time, booked it in a hurry.

This most have been the worst "hotel" on our entire trip: The whole room looks and feels like a garage with a window front spanning ohne side - and every other guest walking by and looking inside! Furniture and appliance are very basic and worn. Theoretically there is a view but you need to be able to look around the...

We booked a Budget unit as nothing else available. Dated and certainly not stylish but had everything necessary including comfortable double bed. Very clean with lovely views over the estuary. Unfortunately strict rules meant that visitors could not use the pool which disappointed our visiting grand children. Maybe this should be at Motel Owner's discretion, or be mentioned on the...

Very close to the village of Mangonui. Spotlessly clean and well appointed. Paid extra for a "view", which was disappointing. Lack of privacy irksome (people walking past and looking directly in). I dont like net curtains , but these would have solved this problem.

Whilst somewhat on the basic side, this place provides a good central point easy to talk to town and restaurants. The rooms were clean and tidy. We didnt mind basic but cleanliness was paramount and we can honestly say it met with our satisfaction in that regard. A pleasant stay.

Great location for touring northland. Clean and Comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Studio small but compact and easy to self cater. If on a budget would definitely recommend. Looked at suite accomm and it did look better of course but we were on tight budget. I guess it could do with an upgrade but value for money it is hard to...

This delightful Motel was a lovely experience and one I would repeat. While not a luxurious unit, the ground floor two bed, one bathroom units were well fitted out and had everything. So quiet you almost forgot there was a road out front. The units are super clean but the furnishings could definitely do with an upgrade. The postage stamp...

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great looking colonial style property from the outside. Rooms are large and clean but very basic - walls are simply painted breeze blocks. Kitchen has large fridge freezer and decent hob/oven so would be excellent for self catering. Was quite noisy at night, partly from the Fridge and also hum from a electrical circuit...

Visiting relatives nearby and convenient place to stay. Bed good, clean and tidy, however bathroom and toilet tiny and old fashioned. Place badly needs remodelling. Owners friendly and helpful. Small heated pool looked inviting but we did not have time or weather to use it.
