3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

Late check-in after a day on Waiheke, the young man who checked us in was not personable or friendly, just functional. The room had an old school, grand-ma's-house-in-the-70's kinda vibe (and smell), lots of floor space and eclectic furnishings. It was comfortable and adequate for the night we were there so no issue in recommending it as an over-nighter, perhaps... More

We booked this Motel as we were catching the early ferry to Waiheke Issland and according to rating was 7 on Booking.com. I feel Booking.com should remove this motel from their site as I would give it a rating of 3 and that would be for location only. Do not book this motel as very grubby we could not sit... More

The best thing I can say for this motel is its location and that being close to very good restaurants. I hate brown, brown curtains, carpet walls...this place is in a time warp of the 70. The thing that realy got to me were the cigarette burns on almost every horizontal surface. Staying in another motel tonight.

The management are helpful, the unit was, overall, clean, and spacious. Décor pleasantly eighties. WiFi available. Spacious storage. Loo is separated from bathroom, providing two doors between it and the kitchen area. Raised central green space on which is a mesh-enclosed trampoline for youngsters, and through which there's a good view of the marina and bay. Would stay again. Good... More

Sadly the motel did not live up to its fantastic location. I got bitten by bed bugs! The shower had holes in the wall and the base felt like it was ready to fall through the floor. The decoration and facilities were dated and sub standard. The exterior staircase to the second floor appeared to be breaking away from the... More

This place is utterly devoid of charm. It's actually quite an achievement that they've managed to design everything in such a way as to instill a sense of discomfort. Lights are stupidly positioned and harsh. No bedside lamps. TV in a ridiculous position. Heater leg broken. Power point coming out of the wall. Shower head at chest height. Two tiny... More

The unit was tired and the couch was unable to be sat on. We asked and paid for twin beds only to find a put up bed in the lounge room that was so uncomfortable you could not sleep on it.

Don't let the photo's on the motels website lead you into a false sense of security. The rooms are so outdated & don't look to have been touched since the 1970's. I've stayed in some average places in my time but this is below average. Found an old loaf of bread & half bottle of coke still in the freezer... More

I loved everything about this place. A beautiful location, lovely units, and views overlooking the marina. There is a supermarket a few minutes walk away as well as quaint restaurants. The price may be a little steep but that didn't stop me from booking here for an additional week. I highly recommend this place as it's but a short walk... More
