“Great place to stay”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We have travelled all over New Zealand recently and this was one of the best places we stayed although not the most expensive. The owner, Marie could not have been more helpful. The room was spacious and immaculately maintained. The kitchen area contained both microwave and hob and was well equipped. The bed was super kingsized. Surprise, surprise on the balcony which overlooked the Marina was a spa bath, luxury indeed. There was also a pool , barbeque area and laundry facilities.

Awesome place to stay, and owners very helpful. Room was lovely and big with a spa pool you fill yourself. Everything was so clean and made a great place to stay for our weekend away.
Wish we could of stayed longer and would definitely book again.

Room Tip: Not sure if all rooms have the pools so maybe check when you book.

We have stayed here at least 5 times over the last few years.Why do we come back? Marie the owner is such a pleasure to deal with. We love the pool,the BBQ area and the spas. New World is within walking distance,we usually go kayaking at the estuary.Fishing trips are available weather permitting and the shopping and cafes are great.This is an excellent place for a reunion as units are spacious, well equipped and set out well.The last trip I took 3 lots of friends and their families and all of them loved the place and felt it was great value for money. The two bedroom units are especially good value for money. We all are planning another trip here agin soon

Room Tip: Room 20 if you want a 2 bedroom or the honeymoon suite ,we all had a laugh about the mirrors on the...

Cheaper options throughout Whangamata & local region. When I was staying here ,there was a sign outside saying 'Winter Rates Available' ..... I booked online & paid the price for not doing a little more area market research as the hotel was nearly empty throughout my stay.
Clean & tidy & the cleaning staff were polite & friendly.
Would stay elsewhere next time due to cost & location 1 kilometre away from the beach.

Thanks Breakers... Another great stay with them. The rooms are always sunny, clean, well heated and spacious.The owners are also welcoming and friendly and go out of their way to be helpful..
The pool and bbq area looks amazing but it seems every time we stay there it in the dead of winter so will have to try to time a visit in the summer next time. The spa bath on the deck are great to slide into to relax and unwind anytime. Thanks again, we will be back!

Breakers Motel is a great place to stay for a few days, perhaps as a central base for exploring the Coromandel and Bay of Plenty areas. Well furnished/decorated with plenty of towels and bathroom amenities, as well as a comfy bed. The basic cooking facilities, a large fridge, ample crockery/cutlery - and a coffee plunger - in our apartment made preparing light breakfasts/snacks and eating some take-away evening meals a breeze: a real holiday, instead of one spent in the kitchen! Perhaps the only addition to the apartment could be a small dishwasher ... something that I know my husband would really appreciate!
Whangamata town (walking distance if you're fit, otherwise less than a 5-minute drive) has a reasonable choice of restaurants and take-aways - including Indian, Italian, Mexican and seafood - and a large supermarket that's handy for re-stocking grocery/liquor supplies.
Sincere thanks, Marie, for your warm welcome and attention to detail that made our recent stay so thoroughtly enjoyable.
We can't fault the accommodation ... just the unpredictable weather that meant we didn't get to see quite as much of the Coromandel as we would have liked - or a chance to use the hot tub on our patio! Never mind ... that just means we have a good excuse to return sometime :-)

The rain was pummeling down when we drove into Whangamata, so we stopped at the first place we saw.... and got lucky! With a little coaxing, we got a room with a private spa.... and spent the afternoon enjoying the rain instead of cursing it! There were even some cookies, a little tea and cocoa.. nice! I had a really indulgent day. Walked into town for some takeaway when the rain stopped, (quite convenient). The room had a little table and chairs to eat. Spread out the maps on the giant bed and planned the next day's travels. It was definitely a great choice for us!
