Reviewed March 10, 2013

We only spend one night at the Barringtons Motor Lodge but we really enjoyed our time. The room was nice, clean and tidy so not even a point for constructive criticism. The hosts are great and happy to give several recomondation where to eat, what to see and to do! Wereally felt looked after. Will definitely stay here again so thanks !

Spacious, clean, quiet and close to the beautiful Whakatane river walkway. Biggest compliment to the owners and staff - friendly, professional, service focused - couldn't have been more helpful and flexible. The owners know the area and were keen to help with reservations or recommendations. And the bed was comfortable too!

Our motel room was nice and very clean and good size for a studio room, a lot larger than some we have stayed in. It is also walking distance to the supermarket & suburban shops. Nice, handy location. Would stay here again.

This place is really nice, it was clean, well furnished and very large. I really enjoyed the stay here and highly recommend it to anyone staying in Whakatane. The price was very affordable and it is also in a great location.

I only booked this motel because it was an easy walking distance to the party we were going to. But, it turned out to be one of the best motels we have ever stayed in, and we've been in LOTS of New Zealand motels. Huge rooms, extremely clean, and a very helpful man running it. He saw that we had plants in the car so he offerred to take them to the back of the motel, out of the direct sunlight, and he watered them. Next morning, he saw us packing up the car, so he brought the plants back again. These small touches make us want to return next time we are in Whakatane.

The super-sized rooms and very friendly service make this motor lodge a stand out from the crowd. Our room was clean and comfortable.
The lodge is a pleasant 20-30 min walk along the river into town (although there are a few take-away meal options closer than that).
