Stayed here for a night over Waitangi weekend. No booking but not a problem. Very friendly hostess hooked me and the missus up with a chalet and pointed us in the direction of the golf course and eateries! Bathroom wasn't the biggest I've seen but the pressure made up for it!

We found this room warm and comfortable. Reception staff not overly friendly, weren't sure if we had prepaid (we had) and complained about the commission they were charged by booking agent. He did explain that it wasn't our fault but made me feel unwelcome..... room needed more lighting, and a hairdryer. Apart from that, was a pleasant stay but not...

Incredible gardens, clean, well equipped. We found nothing comparable on the North Island for camping or motel. A 6 star experience! Close to great beaches and wetlands. John was a great host! Had a kitchen that was equipped with dishes, gas stove, microwave, and tv. Was very clean and beautiful.

The motel units are individually located within a very pleasant greenery. The unit we had was clean and well appointed. Car parking was adequate for one car and adjacent parking was available for any additional vehicles. We did not visit the conference facilities but were advise by a guest that they were good.

Stayed two nights in a 1-bedroom motel unit. Very clean, tidy, spacious. Looks like these were recently refurbished. Was very quiet as well. The unit even had a heat pump. But to make this place really great, all they need is Sky TV and better seating in the lounge (like a good sofa instead of the old fashion futon type...

Friendly service, comfortable room, everything clean and tidy. The little wooden cottages are both attractive and functional, with a good sized kitchen. Peaceful location despite being on the main road. Even a motel cat!!!
