This is one of the most impressive motels you will stay in. Units are very well equipped with a good range of kitchen facilities. The small individual courtyard is especially attractive and the beds are very comfortable. The only slight disappointment are the showers, which are not the most powerful but am aware that the owners are addressing this problem.
Glen and Allison, the owners, are a mine of information on the local area and very helpful e.g. they provide free towels and spades for Hot Water Beach.
Tairua makes a good base for exploring the Coromandel as it is located on the more attractive east coast.

Glen and Allison run a great motel. They make you feel very welcome and are very willing to help with all your questions and are happy to loan beach towels and spades for digging on Hot Beach! They also have free internet in the reception area.

The chalets, with their king size beds, and private patios with table, chairs and recliner, are extremely clean and the linen is good quality. My husband and I went with my sister and brother in law for the second time. We found the motel 2 years ago and really enjoyed our stay there. As we wanted to see more of the area we naturally returned to Shores Motel again. It is very conveniently situated - 2 mins walk to the harbour for boating trips or the ferry across the water, or for a leisurely stroll along the estuary to the shops and restaurants. It had everything we wanted in a friendly environment.

We had one night here and were put into one of the largest rooms which was good for us. You had a nice lounge area with a new flat screen tv plus kitchen area along with a comfortable bed and clean bathroom. The owners have done a great job making this place look the best it can. They let us use there computer for free which was a plus at the time.

The apartment was very clean and comfortable, obviously recently refurbished. Loved the little garden. Kitchen wasn't very well equipped which made it a little difficult to cook a meal but we managed. On site laundry. No internet connection in apartment but could use it in reception for free. Owner was very friendly and helpful suggesting best beaches etc, free loan of beach towels & spades for Hot Water beach. Thought Tairua was a gem of a place, wish we'd have had a week to spend there.

The hosts of this property are wonderful. They made us feel at home, taking care of our needs and answering questions.
The rooms were immaculate and had everything we needed and more.
The location was handy as everything was within walking distance.
We will be back on our return trip to New Zealand!
