I recently spent 3 nights here, celebrating a family wedding and catching up with relatives. Tutukaka is a beautiful spot, and the hotel is ideally situated, overlooking the marina, and above a range of rather delightful shops. I found the staff to all be very pleasant and helpful; service was excellent. My room was large, and clean. I enjoyed breakfast... More

Decided to have dinner and stay night for birthday celebration. The room was corner top floor with balcony, very nice. Extremely hot so the large ranch sliders and fans were definitely needed. Great bed, shower and room. New pillows needed I think. Room was clean and comfortable. Hall carpet worn and shabby. The staff were fabulous in every area, attentive... More

This was a brillant location for our family. We did not have transport so were able to walk to the Dive! Tutukaka and Perfect Day site just a minute down the road. There were four great eating places within a few minutes walk and the scenic lighthouse walk from the hotel. Also the beach at the end of the marina... More

Tutukaka is part of my home territory. I was born and bred here, so I'm very familiar with this piece of paradise on the northland coastline, barely 25min drive northeast from Whangarei. From the hotel I expected the marina views would be spectacular, and the surrounding beaches and lush hills and pastures, the likes of which grace only the best... More

The heat in the rooms was unbearable noisy ceiling fan and stand up fan in the rooms highlighted the issues they must have with hot rooms but did nothing to cool the room down. Staff told us they had applied to QI for air conditioning but had no response. Could not open windows due to bugs flying in. Heard any... More

Loved Tutukaka and this was a great place to stay although the heat in the room was unbearable! I would revisit without a doubt if they are able to instal air-conditioning until then will choose other accommodation to visit during the summer months.

Really nice place to stay, nice, quiet and clean. Bed was comfy. Easy free parking and has a good restaurant. Really friendly staff. Didnt use the pool, took a while to find it, to check it out. The signage needs to be improved. Not a bad price for the location. We only stayed one night, but would happily go there... More

Good size rooms, good facilities, nice restaurant and excellent coffee. That was as far as it got. Checked in at about 3:00PM. Worked up a sweat just getting to the curtains to close off the solar gain!. Talk about a HOT property. This was taking it a step too far. Yes they had a ceiling fan (noisy and thumping). Yes...

The place was amazing! We stayed for 2 nights at the end of our trip so we could go snorkelling at poor Knights. What we didn't realize when we booked was how great it would be. The manager Christine was so amazing! She was kind, hilarious and so helpful! The restaurant is also served by the desk girls and she... More
