We chose this motel because of the price. We knew we would be arriving late and leaving early. It was an older style motel, spotlessly clean and quite comfortable. We had a room around the back and heard no road noise at all. Location is great. It was only a short walk into town. Nearby were some fast food restaurants.... More

Stayed for a night and ended up getting 20 bed bug bites. My kids all got bites too and when I informed the manager he had looked at us as if we bought the bugs with us! The rooms were tidy. Beds were very, very soft.

I stayed here with my family, needing a place overnight while in Whangarei for a family occasion. Our family unit was very spacious and so clean it sparkled!!! Beds were comfy. Well equipped kitchen with full stove/oven. Will stay again when back in Whangarei!

Easy walk into the CBD only minutes away. Warm hospitality when we arrived we are have... More

The motel is in a good location about a 15 minute walk to Town Basin. The motel room was very small and getting a bathroom shoehorned into the available area was an inpressive feat! Despite the cramped size it was very clean and ideal for the one night we were staying.

We had room 11 upstairs. I opened the door and was impressed by the mirror-like surface of the kitchen bench , talk about clean!! WOW. Sooo I went looking for dust and dirt, as you do, but none to be found here. 1 bed in lounge and another two in separate bedroom. These units are of an older style so... More

My daughter and I had flown in from Phuket via Malaysia that morning and couldn't drive all the way home (Far North) so we booked a 1 bedroom unit. We stay often here so knew it's quiet and clean. I asked for a late check out which was lucky because I slept until 10:00am. My daughter booked the room through... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in December and must say that we did enjoy the hotel. Our only slights confers were out of the hotels control. For example the parking is quite difficult to get out of it the car park is full. The room walls are rather thin and you're able to hear a pin drop in adjoining... More
