My family stayed 3 days. we really enjoyed it, quite and simple but warm. Breakfast was also really good. All staff were kind and friendly. It was not far from the main beach. We could walk , took about 15 to 20 minutes for normal walking steps. We really liked to stay just like our home.

We really enjoyed our stay here, quite a simple small lodge with cabins and rooms radiating out from the central reception area and breakfast room. We had a studio with a small separate bedroom and sitting area with a small kitchenette. Do not go here for luxury; if you want a welcoming, well run very friendly stay this is the... More

Good standard motel with all the facilities we needed. Added the continental breakfast which was really good value. Enjoyed the peaceful location which, whilst just outside town was still convenient for everything we planned. Our hosts were very helpful with advice on trips, tours and local attractions. Would certainly stay again if in the area.

Stayed one night and chose due to price point. Fair price for a 2.5 star accommodation. Felt like room was a step above hostel room. Was greeted as you would expect, staff was friendly, no issues. Parking spots were ackward with you having to back out and drive backwards between the hotel and other cars. Claims of being able to... More

Plenty of space in the self catering apartment and good laundry facility. Good breakfast and hosts were very helpful with ideas of where to go. Quiet location 3 minutes drive from the town centre. Owners run tours so have plenty of local knowledge.

We arrived at the hotel at 9 pm after a very long drive down from the Northlands. The owner came straight out to the car and was very helpful in recommending a restaurant which would still be open, having made some phone calls for us. It's hard to find food after 9 pm in Whitianga. We didn't have a room... More

The manager is very helpful and friendly, nothing is too much bother to make your stay a pleasant one. We stayed for two nights and could not fault the accommodation except that it is not within walking distance of anything (town is a 5 minute drive). You definitely can't put away the car keys while you are here as there... More

This is a very nice place, close to town with heaps of birdsongs around and wonderful to relax. Breakfast selection good. Very friendly and helpful hosts. All very tidy and clean. Rooms with nice decks to enjoy sunshine. Thanks!

Not impressed with the location at all. Far to far out of town. Literally in the middle of nowhere. No restaurant to dine in on the premises. And the lady who was on reception really didn't appear very interested at all. It had a communal kitchen area if you want to cook for yourselves.
