Stayed at Livingston for one night for work and was really happy with it. Eddie was a fantatsic host, really friendly and helpful. Would happily stay there again. Rooms were clean and wel stocked. I drink a lot of tea and got given actual milk and enough of it, which was wonderful!!

This is a great place to stay in beautiful Whakatane; it is quiet, but close to all amenities and you can walk along the river estuary into town, it's a lovely walk. We had a private spa tub which was great, and the room was very comfortable and well-equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful, ensuring that we could use the gas BBQ in the evening and keeping it spotlessly clean. There was a nice place to sit out and eat under a shady tree. We appreciated the laundry facilities and washing lines to hang out washing, which is handy when you are travelling.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Firstly, the owners are great. They are personable, friendly, helpful, and really want to make sure everything is ok and that your stay will be a good one. We enjoyed being able to make meals, and having the spa bath was great. It was very clean and comfortable. The water pressure is amazing. I needed to do some washing, and the owners washed and dried it and returned it to my room later that day, $4 for washing and $4 for drying. Breakfast options are available if you don’t want to cook.

I stayed in the studio unit with spa pool. Really friendly and helpful staff. Very spacious room with couch coffee table and little dining table. Nice deep spa in bathroom with separate shower. Two chocolates which is a thoughtful little touch. They do a breakfast and dinner as well.

We booked here unexpectedly Thursday. The staff was very helpful and let me look at 3 rooms before checking in considering it was a last minute booking. The space was amazing like the unit super clean, so well done to your cleaning staff. The option to dine in for dinner was incredible but we decided we would take the girls out for dinner. I will stay here again without a doubt and I highly recommend this Motel the service and facilities including parking and space well done team. Jose New Zealand
