Very clean cottages supervised by the owners who are lovely friendly folk. The cottage was in need of an upgrade as the couch was a bit uncomfortable as was the bed. It looked like it was a popular spot for campers and overlooked a small beach.

Spent 3 nights at this excellent motel, very well equipped, peaceful and right on the beach. A very laid back atmosphere, it felt like being on a desert island! Owners very friendly and information in the cabin on the history of the area and the Algie family, after whom the bay is named, and who still own the motel very... More

Situated in the small community of Algies Bay (almost an extension of Snells Beach) and only a 15 drive from Warkworth. A small number of seaside cottages situated adjacent to the beach. Cottages are of various sizes catering for couples to larger families. Have stayed a number of times and have never been disappointed. Very clean and well run. Well... More

Super unit with only grass and sand between us and the water! Idyllic spot for families with safe swimming. Kayaks and dinghies provided. Well equipped units (including one for disabled persons). Plenty of room, comfy beds, well stocked kitchen - full stove in our unit. Quiet and relaxing weekend. Love the solar hot water system installed over the past 2... More

This motel has all the essentials: cleanliness, very comfortable beds and pillows, warmth and quiet. It also is well equipped, spacious, and in a tranquil seaside setting with lovely trees and lots of birdsong. Also kayaks and small boats to use at no extra cost - not like other motels and camping grounds. The hosts are very friendly and helpful... More

This is now our third stay at Bethshan, so they are obviously doing something right! Easy to list just some of those things…the location, right on the water-front, the fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, laundry facilities, really helpful and friendly owners (thanks Katie for all of your help this visit!), peace and serenity, native bush, native birds singing, fantastic sunsets...

we also drove along and came to this motorcamp by accident. Its a lovely wee spot and management was awesome. We had come down to Matakana for the winery tour. Over night stay was required. With everything booked out we took our chances at the motorcamp as we had a stationwagon car with all we needed. We were shown a... More

We had a long day of hiking and driving and were about to settle for a regular motel when we got to the end of the road in Algies Bay and followed the signs down to this secluded gem. The 4th generation owners of this small network of fully self contained cottages could not be more welcoming. The units are... More

We stayed here early Dec 2014. We were very impressed with the accommodation. Lovely comfortable beds and a great view out the sliding door. We stayed in a cottage and spent a quiet night as we had travelled far that day. Top marks to the owners of this motel we loved it and would recommend it to all - families... More

We enjoyed four nights stay here in a spacious and modern unit. At this time of year the third night was free which was a bonus for us. Big comfortable bed and a Freeview/Sky TV in lounge. Not far to travel to nearby Snells Beach, Warkworth and Matakana, all within around 30 mins. drive. The bush walk from the property... More
