We were doing a tour of the Coromandel Peninsula and stopped into the Blue Water Motel for one night. Ended up staying 3 nights because the area is so beautiful and Paul, the host, is such a great character. He couldn't have been more helpful. "You must go to the Hot Beach" - beach towels and spade provided instantly. He is passionate about the region and has a fabulous knowledge of the area.
The rooms are as clean as can be and have views from the top rooms. Also while we were there his plum tree was fruiting so we had plums for breakfast. YUM. Also they have the most divine linen. Worthy of a 5 star hotel.
Aside from providing spades for the Hot Water Beach trip they have kayaks for guest use as well as a hot spa.
I couldn't recommend this more highly - 2 minutes walk to a couple of good eating houses
