Stayed 5 nights enjoying Bucklands Beach Waterfront Motel and the tranquil location looking straight out to the harbour, yachts moored, ferries, joggers, sunsets. Lovely room, spacious, comfortable, quiet, clean. All facilities including guest laundry, good shower. Visited Waiheke Island from here, taking the Sealink ferry from Half Moon Bay Marina nearby. Great selection of cafes and restaurants within 10 mins... More

Had a great stay, exremly helpful & freindly host partnership go out of their way to ensure your comfort. Recent aircon fitment makes rooms extra cosy, which given the recent cold-snap was a real bonus. Looking forward to returning to enjoy all the further site developments. Thanks again to hosts for being so friendly and professional. Cheers

Lovely location, we enjoyed how close we were to the beach. Nice resturants were close by. But on the Friday night the owner started yelling and swearing at kids walking by and cars pulling up. Threatening to assult them. Ruined our stay. Would not return.

Lovely stay,Our Guests were very impressed, beautiful view of waterfront, well appointed.Reasonably close to Restaurants and Town Ferry, Would certainly recommend, just a bit pricey! Locality is very safe for walking, can be a bit windy, as with Auckland.

We stayed at Bucklands for our first trip to Auckland and were not disappointed. The rooms with a water view are perfect - we spent alot of time staring at the beautiful view! Pauline and her husband are absolutely wonderful. They helped us when we needed to alter our arrival and also handled our early check-out. Our room was clean,... More

We had a wonderful 4 night's stay at Bucklands Beach Waterfront Motel. The new owners are friendly and helpful and have obviously been working hard over the past few months refurbishing the motel. It is fresh and clean and the gardens tidy and neatly manicured. When all the upgrades are complete it should be amazing. We stayed in the 2... More

With new owners this Motel is good now but will be better in the months to come. The new owners bring passion and focus to this motel. Always clean and tidy. With great views of the waterfront and a good restaurant just few steps away. This is a great place to stay away from the big city. I will defiantly... More

Situated between historic Howick and the upmarket Half Moon Bay Marina, this motel has views to die for. Although it is slightly run down, we have been staying there twice a year for 5 years and just love it!
