“Tahi apartment at Mangonui Waterfront Motel”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

A very cosy motel! We stayed in Tahi, a very cosy and neatly desinged apartment! The hosts were very friendly and accommodating! There was a nice view over the Mangonui Bay and close to restaurants. If we ever come back to Mangonui we would difinetly stay here again.

In a lovely setting, the Mangonui Waterfront Motel provides peace and relaxation for its guests. Our self contained unit was spacious and well equipped with everything you need. It wasn't the most modern unit we have stayed in, but it had a sort of retro charm that is essentially kiwi. The bed was clean and comfortable, all the equipment worked, the shower was very good and the towels fluffy. The owners are a great couple who were very helpful in pointing us towards local beaches and other amenities. This is a lovely place to stay at the top of New Zealand. Both Ninety Mile Beach and the Bay of Islands are within easy reach. We would definitely recommend it.

Met the owner, really nice guy, gave me some good tips, was always around and available for check-in/out and just to chat. The room was fine, (needs a mini-fridge and TV), but the service is why i'm writing this review.
Thanks Grant :) Next time i'm in Northland i'll be looking you up.

We stayed for two nights in Tahi - I could so easily have moved in permanently !! The apartment has been beautifully fitted out with exceptional views over the harbour . The location is superb - as were our hosts Delia and Grant who were more than helpful .We will definitely be back .

We stayed a few nights over the New Year period with a group of friends. Grant and Delia were the perfect hosts, never failing to do everything possible to make our stay the best it could be. The room we were in was great; sunny, spacious and recently renovated without any of the sterile feel that you sometimes get with motels. The location was also great with easy access to Mangonui restaurants and bars (try the Thai if you do visit!). We would strongly recommend a stay with Grant and Delia if you want the perfect location from which to explore the beauty of New Zealand's Far North region, or if you just want somewhere to relax and unwind in the sun!

We stayed for one night at the Mangonui Waterfront motel and I wished we had stayed longer. We stayed in `Tahi` which I really recommend. Everything was tastefully done and to a very high standard. The kitchen had everything we needed. The living room was very comfy and had a large flat screen tv which we appreciated as it was terrible weather while we were there. We also appreciated the jigsaws and games in the room. The room has a great balcony but due to the weather we weren`t able to use it. The bathroom only had a shower but was darling. Great accommodation and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The room `Tahi` had a great balcony and was extremely comfortable.

After driving from the Cape we decided to stop at Mangonui and drove round the waterfront passed lots of different accommodations available. We wanted something in walking distance to restaurant etc so we drove up the driveway. We received a friendly greeting and were shown a couple of self contained rooms. Impressed with the first we found a large open plan nicely decorated studio unit with great views and a separate bathroom. Comfy lounge, bed good and wifi available. It was raining but we were able to enjoy the changing tides and views. Very comfy. Good value for money.
