    Stayed 3 nights in Sep 2013 and what a relaxing break we had. Ron & Rhonda were delightful Hosts - full of information and nothing was too much trouble for them. While this property was an older style Motel (as many are in NZ), everything had been done to present our Unit in the best possible light. It was very clean, the bed was comfortable and there was a 2 Seater leather Lounge to relax in. Location must be the best in Whitianga ! Right across from the main beach and walking distance to town, the Ferry and Museum. If you want somewhere comfortable and perfectly positioned - this is the place. Thanks for a great stay !

    Our family have chosen this motel for the past three years for a family get-together. Ron and Rhonda have been marvelous. The motels have always been nice and clean and tidy and serviced daily. Each time we have stayed we have used the BBQ area out the back and found it very user friendly, and this year Ron even gave us some of his home grown vegetable to put on the BBQ, have great is that. The motel is within walking distance of town and with the beach only meters away what more could you ask for. Many thanks Ron and Rhonda for making our stay so pleasant.

    My wife and I picked this hotel for it's location during our tour of New Zealand and we got it right. It is right on the beach and, if you are lucky like us, you may get the 1 bedroom apartment on the end with a window looking out to sea. Ron and Rhonda were perfect hosts, very accomodating and friendly. We were welcomed and immediately given a basket of vegetables by Ron straight out of the garden. They were very informative about the area and the beautiful beaches on the Coramandel; a must is Hahei beach; go there.....it is superb.

    The rooms were clean and spacious and had all equipment in the kitchenettes. I would certainly recommend this motel to anyone. Great value for money.

    Room Tip: Try to get the room facing the sea

    We have stayed a number of times when going on fishing charters, and can vouch for the cleanliness and attention to detail that the owners have given each unit. Old fashion hospitality that makes up for the older look of the complex. Furnishing are up to date and functional. Nice barbecue area. Owners only too happy to give advice on where to fish and what to do in the area. if you are looking for sea views and proximity to beach probably best located of all motels in Whitianga and in our opinion got to be value for money.

    I stayed one night in Whitianga and this motel is in a great location just across the road from the beach and a few minutes walk to the town shops and restaurants. The unit I stayed in was very old and seemed a little expensive.The Manager is very helpful and nice to deal with, as good a reason as any for a motel stop. Would stay again.
