“Nice hotel, helpful owners!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

This is a clean and spacious hotel & great value for what you get.

I stayed here with my husband in early may and we arrived late one evening when it was raining. The hotel was almost empty and the owner gave us a spa suite without charging us for it, which was great! We spent the cold evening sitting in the hot tub outside, which was just lovely.

The owner of this hotel is so kind and caring, I wouldn't hesitate to go back or to recommend this place to friends!

What can we say about Breakers??? Our Dad had passed away and Marie couldn't do more for us, she was so accommodating and was very understanding. Nothing was a problem!
Our room was awesome, clean and bright - and if it had been summer - the pool would have been so inviting! The service was exceptional, these guys deserve an award!
We'll be back in happier times, Marie and Doug, thank you so much!

We spent one night here and found it comfortable and good value. The kitchen was really good with nice crockery. The bathroom was spacious, and the bed comfortable.

We were only at Breakers for 2 nights but would gladly have stayed longer had our schedule allowed it. First impressions were immediately positive with the lovely welcome from proprietor Marie. She couldn't have been more welcoming. Marie showed us a couple of options and we chose a ground floor unit adjacent to the pool. It was lovely. Very spacious and extremely well appointed. Marie is a wealth of knowledge about local activities and gladly shares it with guests. We briefly saw her husband Doug and he exudes the same friendliness Marie does. This is a wonderful place to stay on the Coromandel Peninsula. When we are next there we will definitely stay at Breakers.

After 2 bad nights around the East this place was heaven! The welcome and service is fantastic. We felt so welcome! Best accommodation on our 9 day trip around central NZ. Cannot say enough - just fabulous!
