Stayed here for 3 nights during our tour. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and welcoming. The room was exactly as described, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Wish I'd been there for longer

Stayed for 5 nights and everything was fantastic. Nice big and spotless units, situated just a couple of minutes walk to centre of town. Phil and Maureen were the prefect hosts, which just made out stay that much better. Recommend to all.

A very comfortable and conveniently located motel. Maureen and Phil were welcoming and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. Good value for money for the Bay of Islands. The covered parking was a bonus and the laundry facilities were good.

There was difficulty in accommodating us for the days we wished to visit so we had the unexpected experience of 3 different units during our stay. 2 were upstairs and 1 ground level. All were well appointed, spotless, airy and spacious. Bed linen was crisp and beds comfortable but we did prefer to be upstairs with a view over the...

Set just yards from the seafront this affords a little more peaceful location but still very close to all the shops, bars and restaurants. Easy strolling distance to the ferries to Russell and the bay trips. The rooms are equipped to a high standard and we thought it very good value for money.
