I found this greatcplace after our first night in town was a washout with a bad accommodation choice. This motel is well run, clean, comfortable and has lots of extras. Worth every dollar for an enjoyable stay in this city.

We stayed for one night for a little weekend away with the kids, stayed in a apartment suite. This was the cleanest and best presented motel room my wife and I have ever seen. the décor would not win design awards, however it was modern and comfortable. The free wifi was easy to get on to and of good strength.... More

Your kind comments are appreciated. Our cleaning staff take great pride in the high level of room presentation and your feedback will certainly be passed on to them. The decision to upgrade the wifi to being free and unlimited was one of the best decisions we have made, judging by the regular comments received from guests. We hope to see... More

Great stay, very comfortable, friendly service, very clean, central to town and restaurants I enjoy staying in this motel for last 7 years I visit every month and every thing is constant as it was when open new. Great place to stay and book in advance as most of time during week days has no vacancy

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion of our accommodation. We have continually refurbished the motel to ensure the rooms are presented in 'as new ' condition and greatly enjoy meeting our repeat guests who stay on a regular basis.

I've been regularly staying here and I have found the rooms clean, comfortable and inviting. It's winter now and it's nice to walk into a room that's pre heated and wifi is fast and readily available. The owners are friendly and the service is top notch. When I'm in Whangarei this is where I prefer to stay. I highly recommend.

This motel is very well located, a 5 minute walk to "downtown" and "Town Basin". They offer free WIFI which is great. The room is clean, and includes fridge, microwave, and hot pot. But the room is pretty small, and because the motel is right on the highway it's a bit noisy. Not too bad though. They have free washing... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. I note that you booked your room online - the room chosen is clearly described as 'compact' on all websites. It is the cheapest room available and we have other larger rooms if required. We believe that $4.00 for the dryer is reasonable ( considering the power they use )and... More

Thank you for your feedback. We try hard to make our rooms as comfortable as possible and go to great lengths to ensure they are spotlessly clean each day.

This motel is very clean and although nothing wrong with it owners not very flexible with regard to check in or check out or aren't particularly friendly so not quite sure why they run a motel. Although motel is very acceptable - Showers (wet room) is very good, beds comfortable, are good and location convenient.

10am check out and 2pm check in times are in place within the accommodation industry for a range of extremely valid reasons. Having said that we do try to accommodate requests for early check in whenever we can. It is extremely helpful if guests make such request prior to check in date. You checked in at 12 pm and your...
