This was our second visit to the beautiful Coromandel and the Blue Water Motel. This is a well well managed Motel with a friendly and helpful owner who is happy to answer any questions about the area. The room we stayed in was cosy and comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location is convenient for restaurants and walks to the bay. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Just enjoyed an excellent two night stopover. Very good location. Cabins appointed tastefully & comprehensively. Immaculately clean. Small spa pool.
Friendly & knowledgeable owner who succeeds on all fronts in running a really excellent motel. Highly recommended.

We received a very friendly and helpful welcome from Paul who let us know all the best things to see and do. He also provided a spade to dig our hole at Hot Water Beach!

Our chalet was lovely - spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Nice hot shower. Plenty of opening windows plus a ceiling fan. Also a proper verandah with a view across to the harbour.

There is a super hot tub for two which you can lock for privacy. Free wifi was great too. The TV was a fairly old model but it worked fine.

It is just a short walk to the local restaurants and shops.

All in all, an excellent place to stay and highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed two evenings with Paul, and the room was perfect, neat as a pin, and the service impeccable. Paul also did a laundry for us for a nominal fee, a much needed service on a one month driving tour of NZ. Paul also recommended a local restaurant called Shells on the main street in town, and what an outstanding experience that was. We sent a review to the Shells web site. Paul also recommended a divine hiking trail by the ocean in the Coromundel Region. Overall, we highly recommend Blue Water Motel, Tairua, New Zealand, and we thank Paul immensely for being such a gracious and helpful host.

Room Tip: Get a room with a lovely sunny exposure so you can have breakfast on the verandah.
