Harbour View Motel
Ranked #5 of 11 Hotels in Coromandel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 16, 2008

We spent 5 days at the end of a tour of New Zealand. The motel was clean, well appointed and easy to find. The locum site personnel were very helpful and the information pack highlighted all that was to see in Coromandel. Don't miss the Gold Stamp Museum! Local restaurants with excellent fish dishes were plentiful and the walks in and near Coromandel ranged from easy to arduous. It provided an ideal finish and rest before the long journey back to the UK.

Stayed: April 2008

Reviewed December 29, 2007

We stayed for 3 nights in December and had a great time. The rooms are spotless, have cooking facilites and have a great view of the harbour.

What is not mentioned much is that right next to the motel is the start of an attractive path to the town of Coromandel. It takes about 35-45 minutes to walk into town and you climb up, so you get good views of the harbour.

We used Coromandel town as a base to travel over the peninsular. The 309 road from Coromandel is a pretty decent gravel road with a good surface, but some sharp narrow bends, that can take you across the peninsular passing a nice short walk to a grove of old Kauri trees en-route.

There are a number of good restaurants in Coromandel town that make the town an enjoyable base.

The motel is highly recommended. Iain and Angela are great. There is also wi-fi, but with a fee.

We stayed at the Harbour View Motel in mid-February 2007. Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. Iain and Angela are the perfect hosts, our accommodation was pristine and the view from the verandah (And from the bed!) was unforgetable. The motel is about 2Kms from Coromandel Town which is itself delightful with sufficient facities in terms of restaurants and shops to provide the base for a stay of of few days or longer. Our unit at the Harbour View was immaculate and to sit on the verandah at sunset with a bottle of wine (New Zealand of course) makes the long trip to New Zealand worthwhile in itself. If you are a golfer you are on to a double winner. A visit to Coromandel Golf Club is a must. As picturesque, challenging and visitor-friendly as you will find anywhere.

Many thanks for your comments. We bought the property in November 2006 ~ so were "new kids on the block" when you came to stay. We've extended the decks, updated spme of the furnishings, and got rid of the pink paint! We're enjoying being here ~ a beautiful place to live and visit, and meeting lovely people from all over the world.
