The couple who built this place were way ahead of their time. Roomy comfortable resort pool and always the best device.
After a tough day you can just open your ranch slider and fall into the pool or hop in the spa if you are upstairs. First class place and people.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled on business

Marie,
We just want to complement your family for the excellent facilities that we enjoyed. The 2nd day of rest whilst the group toured was relaxing beside the pool with a cuppa & the lunch that was presented to us as a surprise. The room was spacious, comfortable mattress, spotlessly clean with fresh linen & towels. Make no mistake IF we ever visit NZ North Island, Breakers will be on the agenda. May God bless your family.

We stayed 2 nights at Breakers Motel and were given the warmest welcome ever! Marie was wonderful and even gave us a choice of apartments. She showed us where everything was and offered suggestions for eating out, plus gave plenty of information on local attractions. Our apartment was on the ground floor with loads of space, fully fitted kitchen/diner, separate lounge, a huge wet room and a lovely patio area overlooking the yacht marina. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this motel, which is also well placed near town/supermarket/ beach etc. There is also a lovely swimming pool, which unfortunately we didn't find time to enjoy - a good reason to return!

Room Tip: The swimming pool is in an enclosed area central to all the accommodation.

My wife and myself stayed here for only two nights before catching a flight back to the UK.
This is a nice motel with an inviting swimming pool to relax by after a long day sight seeing. The room we had was clean and served our needs well.

The most endearing feature of this Motel is it's staff. Marie the owner is fantastic (helpful and cheerful) as were the rest of the staff we met.

We had room 13 on the ground floor with it's own patio area and direct access to the pool.

I have no hesitation in recommending the is Motel.

Terrific large room with spa tub inside and hot tub on private patio. Pool so close we could sit on our patio and dip our feet in the water.
Great location in a lovely seaside town. And extremely helpful management.

Room Tip: Ask for room #15!

We last stayed at the Breakers 4 years ago and loved it. We have just been back and it is still excellent. Lovely rooms and very friendly people. Getting breakfast things delivered the previous night made for flexibility in planning days out.

Spotless, comfortable, and the owner Marie is one of the kindest people I have met. It’s a great value compared to other tired options which aren’t much if at all cheaper. The pool is a huge plus and you can walk to the surf beach. Book in advance a few weeks from January to March as its no secret.
