Great motel, right on the beach. Yvonne was very helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcome. The room was quite large - separate bedroom and two extra beds in the main room. Very clean and comfortable. And the view from the front was beautiful. Highly recommended!

I stay here once a year on a business trip and find it the most pleasant and welcoming accommodation I stay in. The hosts remember my name and it feels like coming home again! The upstairs units are beautiful, well equipped, comfortable furniture and the beds are very comfortable. The stay is never long enough! Thanks again.

The owners Yvonne and Mike were so lovely from the moment we arrived. The motel exceeded our expectations from the inside out. And what a lovely view of the beach! Great BBQ facilities, outdoor furniture, and communal clotheslines for everyone to use. The bathroom was cleaner than any of the hotels I've been in overseas. What a pleasure it has... More

Stayed for an overnight break away and loved it. Absolutely a sparkling gem on the beach. Super clean, modern spacious rooms. Top hotel standard at a good motel price. Unobstructed sea views. The welcome was warm and attentive and attention to detail a feature. We felt completely at ease and at home. Highly recommended.

Lovely motel across the road from the beach at Whitianga. The rooms have been renovated and are very comfortable with a great bed and lovely furnishings. Very nice kitchen in the room that we had as well.

We stayed here in June 2016. We stayed in one of the upstairs apartments and were very impressed. Spotless and well appointed. The bed was large and comfortable and the view was amazing.

Stayed 4 nights early March for some R&R and this place is in a great location and very neatly kept by the very nice hosts. Our upstairs room was very clean and came with a great view. Well priced too. They even loan you kayaks (even helped get them acorss the road to the beach). Nice touch.
