I travel a lot for business. I stay in mainly hotels and some motels. This motel was better than some hotels I've stayed in. Excellent central township location, yet still very quiet. Very well presented property. A lovely welcoming feel. Lovely, friendly owners (and their gorgeous pooches). Great sized room, clean tidy, well lit. All the basic amenities you could want and they provide REAL MILK in a glass bottle, which is always lovely. Clear instructions in the room (air con, lights, tv etc). Parking right at the door. Overall, I had a wonderful night and I would definitely stay again.

Room tip: I had a ground floor room however, I did not hear noise from upstairs.... all rooms seem excellent

Like many I came to Whakatane to visit White Island Its worth booking a place ahead , the boats get cancelled due to bad weather so some flexibility in the timetable is very useful This place is a fine place to stay , couldn't be in a better spot , few minutes from White Island offices and lots of eating and drinking options within 5 mins or less on foot The staff were friendly and helpful , rooms were modern with a comfy bed and aircon - very useful ! No complaints at all , would happily return

Great service from Mel and Pete through our stay over the weekend of the Oxfam Trailwalk event. Both Mel and Pete supported us with whatever requested we had. Near the main stretch of The Strand, walking distance from practically everything you need at Whakatane!

Great host and close to the strand, where all the shops are. About 3mins walk to where the sea is and 5mins walk to a hill where u can have a full view of whakatane. Plenty of parking spaces in the compound
