The bed was comfy, room was warm (it was winter, so that is good), and the kitchen was very well equipped. Very clean. Location was quiet and away from the center of town, but close enough to be convenient. The owner was friendly and helpful. They have a huge DVD collection if you need something to do at night. Easy...

Very friendly, helpful hosts. Nice touch that they turned the heater on in advance but have to say the room was still a bit cold - those little blow heaters really aren't up to it. Big spacious room, loads of space. Nice and quiet (we booked a room away from the main road). Absolutely totally clean and tidy. Comfy bed...

After spending 2 months of work with my wife in Whangarei we could not have come across a better place to stay. Rick & Marissa I have to stay are the best hosts I have ever experienced, this couple could not have done anymore to make us feel at home. In house meals were delicious, rooms are very spacious, free...

Great place to stay. Very friendly owners--went the second mile to help us out with places to see and things to do. The rooms were very clean and everything worked well. I will stay there again when we return.

The Pembrooke is in a great position, not too far from the city centre. The road is quite busy but it did not bother us. We were given a very warm welcome on arrival and were informed that the heater in our room had been turned on for us as it was quite a chilly evening. Much appreciated. Apparently the...

Clean, comfortable bed, nice shower, good location. Great host! Cold room though, could probably do with a better heating system! Tiny fan heater (seriously small) doesn't heat up the room fast enough - glass roof doesn't help much. Will probably be back here on next trip up north.

Stayed in the motel 19th May. Rooms are very nice and spacious. The difference is the hosts. Ricky is an amazing host. Nothing is a bother. He drove us up the road to a restaurant, then arranged for us to get home. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding. A great stay

Comfortable,clean & conveniently located. Close to restaurants & shops. We got the last room so had no choice & some rooms do get road noise so request a room back from the main road if you can. Helpful service & while not luxurious was comfortable.
