My daughter and I have stayed here a couple of times. The spa room is beautiful and relaxing. I appreciate them providing towels for the pool and spa. Decor is a little old but that's typical for Whangarei. Lovely owners.

Everything was positive about our stay from the intial welcome booking on the phone to the whole package in the motel. We stayed in the large house which will sleep up to 10 guests (1 double, 1 single, 1 quad, 1 triple) and found it well equipped and comforatable. There is a small swimming pool (large enough for 4 teens... More

Overall a disappointing accommodation choice. Uncomfortable bed. Noisy. Cold. Hosts a little casual. Could do with an upgrade to better cater for weary travellers. I'm not tall but had to almost crouch in shower. Can't find anything positive sorry.

We had spent time camping and decided to treat ourselves to a couple of nights in a motel. This was a great price and close to everything you want. The owner was lovely and suggested we try the hot spa. Oh my! It was glorious. We would gladly come back again. Our room even had a bath and shower. Thanks... More

I've stayed here twice while in Whangarei for work and have enjoyed both stays. The rooms are clean and tidy, with big comfortable beds. The decor is not the flashest by a longshot, but it is cheap and you get 3 days of free wifi which is the best I have found at any place I have stayed in the... More

We had hired the premises because it had a conference room as well as accommodation. We arrived late at night, and Cath was waiting for us to arrive. Everything was perfect. Instead of having tiny little packs of milk, Cath gave us a bottle of milk knowing we would need it more. Cath had provided us with extra towels, Nothing... More

I stayed here and hired the conference room for some workshops. Love the conference room as it is light, warm and with a nice outlook over pool. Excellent kitchen. Cath the new owner is very friendly and helpful (she even did the dishes for me after my last workshop so I could get away.

Stayed here for three nights in early May 2013. Rang up from Australia the day before and spoke to Cheree who advised that there was a big hockey tournament on in Whangarei but she had one room left at the back which I booked for NZ$105 per night. The room was large, clean and well presented. No problems with the... More
