We received a helpful reception with the owner showing us the room before we decided to stay The self catering room had everything we needed with the bonus of a hot tub on the balcony. It was clean and well run The owner was happy to recommend places of interest for us to visit and loaned us a spade and beach towels to enable us to visit the hot sands. The motel is within an easy walk of shops, bars and restaurants and if you like walking, the beach. Would definitely stay again
I Love this place ,my 5th stay there , amazing service , would definitely recommend , the best value for money in the coromandel , walking distance to cafes/restaurants , definitely the number 1 pick in whangamata
This is a first-class motel. We received a very welcoming warm reception. The spacious room was very comfortable, well equipped with micro-wave, hob, fridge etc. and was spotlessly clean throughout. Our ground floor unit opened onto a relaxing patio area and a landscaped area with kidney-shaped swimming pool. And, after I accidentally left my cellphone behind, Ross was incredibly generous and considerate in posting it to me, despite having only 48 hours to the nationwide level 4 lockdown. I give this motel my highest recommendation and will return.
We stayed here for three nights last week and the unit was very spacious with excellent lighting. When checking in, we were asked to pay in full which is not uncommon, but when we asked if we could see the unit first, we were told in no uncertain terms that we couldn't as we had booked and had to pay anyway. This was so unnecessary as the unit was fine. The housekeeping left a lot to be desired and we had to wash glasses and cutlery before using them. The service was simply pulling up the bed and changing the towels - no wiping down of hand basin etc and the one tea towel and dish cloth were not changed at all. Toiletries were not replaced although on asking for more this was not a problem. We would stay here again, but would hope for better pr and cleanliness.
We were greeted by Ross in reception who couldn't have been more helpful. He gave us maps & useful advice on where to eat shop & get petrol. We were even given pool/beach towels and a spade to take to Hot Water beach & advice on where to go & what to do when we got there. Our room was ground floor with access to the pool. It was spotless & well equipped & serviced every day if we needed it. We couldn't fault it. The staff were all friendly & helpful & nothing was too much trouble. During the week Whangamata is quiet in the evenings but we managed to keep ourselves well fed & watered. Apart from that there was little to do so we borrowed a couple of DVDs from a large stock in reception & watched those. We left there feeling relaxed & revived. I'd happily recommend it as a good clean & comfortable base for exploring the Coromandel peninsula…
