We got herded back inside from the public footpath for standing out there having a cigarette, because apparently it is a corporate motel...didn't see that anywhere in the information provided about this place.

We stayed for one night on our way north. This motel is highly recommended, immaculately clean and fresh inside, very good facilities and a beautiful big bathroom with excellent shower. Rooms not large but plenty of space for us and our daughter. Would stay here again.

Only a one night stay, but will use this motel again for sure. Everything was spotless and very comfortable. Convenient off street parking and a really helpful manager added to the ease of the stay. Free wifi and Sky TV to watch the movies and the All Blacks!

Stayed overnight and was not disappointed. Was a little worried about the location being so close to a busy main road for noise, but it was as quite as any location.Will return here when in Whangarei again
