We came across this motel while touring North Island. We were looking for a nice quiet location in which to relax for a few days - Wrights by the sea was perfect for this.
Lyn was very friendly & helpful. The accomadation excellent & only a few minutes walk from the beach, cafes & shops.
Perfect!

We found this motel by accident, but we found it to be clean, quiet and Lynn was very friendly. Easy walking to restaurants, and very close to the beach. I would stay there again

Each time i have stopped and rested here Lynn has always been welcoming and always happy to see me again. Wrights By The Sea is a must for anyone that wants a very clean, quiet and hospitable home away from from. Lynn always makes you feel like family and remembers who you are and what you like.
I never fail to stop over at Wrights and i do drive past many Hotels to get to Wrights.

Lynn is to be commended for maintaining such wonderful Motel
