Stayed here on Friday and Saturday night and was very pleasantly surprised. We knew the location was what we wanted however the unit exceeded our expectations with its cleanliness and top quality linen, 2 x access chits to the wifi (one each) pleasant experience on arrival. Would definitely stay here again.

We recently had a two night stay at this motel. Excellent location, extremely clean and comfortable room and high quality towels and bed linen. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Bed was very comfortable. Pool and spa available too. We can not recommend this motel highly enough - we definitely will return again.

We stayed for one night during very busy public holiday in February. It was last minute booking without much research and consideration. We were pleasantly surprised by customer service and room's cleaniness. The room was facing main road however there was not much noise and we had very restful night.

We stayed for two nights in December and found the location to be very central to the shops and the motel although older was spotless inside and the bed was very comfortable. The hosts went out of their way to make our stay was very enjoyable.

We stayed here overnight on a motorcycle trip of New Zealand and we ourselves were moteliers in Australia for 10 years. The place is remarkable by the decor which though immaculately kept is straight out of the 1970s, generally it does pay to update occasionally especially in the case of the room we stayed in where the inbuilt luggage rack...

This motel is an older style of motel which is very clean and a comfortable place to stay if you are looking for a place handy to town. It is only a two minute walk to the harbour, marina and to anywhere in town. The hosts are very friendly and are very knowledgeable about Whitianga. We stayed 3 nights and...

We have stayed with Mervyn and Jo once again and although the units are not 'brand new' I cannot fault the cleanliness, lovely linen, comfy beds, and best of all, the courtesy and helpful manner of the hosts is amazing.

We stayed in Unit 11 for one night. It was spotlessly clean and the decor was very pleasing. I'm sure that the personable owner/manager was very keen to keep her unit in tip top condition because upon entering the motel there was a small notice to remove shoes before entering. We felt very comfortable there. Facilities included swimming pool, spa,...

Located on the Main Street - the shops and restraints are a stones throw away. 100 meters from a clean sandy beach. Couldn't be more central. The proprietors couldn't be more helpful and friendly. We only stayed two days as we had to move on but would definitely have stayed longer if we could. The rooms are spacious and immaculately...
