I stayed here in late April of this year with my partner. I paid $177 for an apartment room. Instead I ended up with a teeny weeny studio unit!! The bathroom was smaller than me double closet and the shower and basin were in there-we could barely close the door while showering or going to the toilet. The place had... More

We only stayed for one night. The rooms were lovely. Spacious and spotlessly clean. The managers were friendly and helpful on local events and attractions. The down side.. The bar and the cafe are not operating. The complex is currently for sale, and is clearly in transition. If you're after a comfortable place to stay, no problem. If you want... More

Great room for the price, clean and quite newly remodelled. Maybe not walking distance to beach, but 3-5min drive away. Wifi was really bad, only 100MB included so I turned on my laptop and then it was gone. So yes free wifi, but really limited.

The owners were super friendly and helpful, and pointed us to local places to eat. The weather was v. hot and without air conditioning (despite a fan) it was too hot to be comfortable. There was wifi, but using a system called "Zenbu" that gives you credit for a certain amount of usage - but it's a hassle to use... More

Nice and clean, comfy beds and lovely staff. Only thing to be cautious of is that they only give you 50MB of free data and you then have to purchase your own. Other then that I would happily recommend! Great location and spacious rooms made for a great stay after a very long flight.

Came here on a business trip, received quality service! The room itself was equipped with everything I needed. Off street car parking which was a bonus! The room was clean and had a homely effect. Would highly recommend to anybody after accommodation in Whangamata. If travelling through the area again, i would definitely stop here! Thanks for the stay!

We stayed for three nights. Very soft bed. The bathroom was cramped. It was difficult to open the shower door if the door to the bathroom was closed. Bathroom was out dated. The wood frame of the sink was coming apart. Friendly staff and proximity to downtown could not make up for disappointing room. Limited WiFi.

Looked nice but standard queen room appallingly uncomfortable, cheap innerspring bed, both saggy and bouncy with maximum partner disturbance. Would not provide fresh milk when asked, only directed to UHT, fridge wasn't cold, no free wifi offered, no tissues in room and man at reception looked surprised to think this could be assumed- poor value for money.
