Bethshan Seaside Cottages Motel
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Stayed one night on the way up the north island and enjoyed it so much we had to make a point of returning to Bethshan motel on the way home. Very clean well appointed units . Great views right on the beach. Very welcoming host. Oh and the bird life is amazing

Room Tip: we stayed in unit 6 which was a 2bedroom unit. Plenty of room.

If you're looking for a holiday oasis close to Auckland, look no further than Bethshan. We arrived to a lovely little note telling us to get settled in our unit with the key waiting for us. We then headed out onto the bay on kayaks (they have several, plus a couple of sailboats and a dinghy, all free to use) and made our way around the bay, then headed over to the diving platform/trampoline (genius) which was great fun. Headed back to have tea and a little snack on the chairs by the beach. It's very close to Scandrett and Tawharanui regional parks too, for a bit of hiking. A wonderful little place to stay and get away from it all! The units themselves are brilliant too, very cottagey/bachy feeling.

Have now stayed at Bethshan twice, August 2011 (4 nights) and May 2012 (3 nights). What a hidden gem! Love their winter special, where every 3rd night is free, which makes it the best deal in the area! Our teenaged boys spent hours on the trampolines & in the kayaks, while the adults appreciated the proximity to the local wineries & Matakana.

On both stays, our unit was right on the bay, with uninterrupted views. Glorious sunsets! The beds were comfortable, and the electric blankets greatly appreciated. Owners Evan and Shirley Algie are welcoming and friendly hosts.

Would definitely return to Bethshan when next in the area, and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Only stayed here for 1 night but wished it was longer. The landlord was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The setting is idyllic, right by the waters edge. The accom was chalet style and had 2 spacious bedrooms, kitchen/lounge and bathroom. You get your own terrace and you can sit out by the water if you like. Very clean and modern. Gorgeous views. Very good value indeed. You do need a car to drive to local restaurants, no food on site. So peaceful and calming. A real haven. Highly recommended indeed.
