“terrific place to stay”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

Needed a place for one night and this place looked good as we entered Tairua. luckily they had a room for us. spotlessly clean, nicely decorated fully kitted out with everything we needed and although we'd chosen a small-ish room, it was still quite spacious. great position in a very pretty place. very good value and very friendly and helpful owners. thanks Paul and Natasha.

Room Tip: I'm sure they're all good.

WOW...Thank you Paul and Natasha for making our stay in th Tairua so wonderful! Everything in our room sparkled and was so immaculately clean and modern! I would recommend this beautiful little motel to anybody wishing for a relaxing, cheap, clean and homely stay in the Coromandel. You thought of everything right down to loaning us beach towels and spades for our trip to hot water beach.Thank you, thank you, thank you we will see you again hopfully soon!

Intended to stay one night as we could not get to coramandel town due to the road be closed what a stroke of luck this was the highlight of our six week stay in new Zealand and we only had 2 night there before having to return to auckland it's the most gorgeous place to explore and Paul helps you do this nothing is to much trouble. Will stay there in 2013 but make sure we have a full week.

Exceptional service and thoughtfulness from the delightful couple running this Motel. Paul and Natasha were the perfect hosts - efficient yet relaxed, always available yet understated and totally clued in to guests needs. I cannot speak highly enough of them - especially as a solo female traveller.

We stayed at the Blue Water Motel with friends whilst attending a car event 'Brits at the Beach'. The unit, whilst small, was comfortable and had everything that we needed. The unit was quiet and had good off-street parking.
The owner was very helpful and friendly and made us feel like completely at home!
Would definitely stay again.

I can't praise this place enough - from the friendly welcome, the comfortable, well equipped room, the helpful advice, to the convenient location - everything was just great. The Coromandel is a lovely part of New Zealand to visit, and staying here made it even better!

Nice greeting from the very pleasant owner who made us very welcome (nothing was too much trouble). The room had everything you needed, good shower, microwave oven, slow cooker, toaster. Clean and comfortable. Good location. Within walking distance to a number of restaurants. Excellent free fast WiFi (the best we had during our tour of New Zealand). 10/10
