Small pool but great to cool off in, beach just round corner, also a lovely relaxing spa. Pool and beach towels are also supplied on request which is great. The owners Mervin & Joanne and their...

We stayed at Mana-Nui for two nights as we were in Whitianga for a wedding. We weren't able to check in until after midnight and Mervyn very kindly waited up for us. He got us settled with fresh milk and a smile on his face - much appreciated after a long journey! We were travelling with our newborn baby and...

We stayed in a 2bdrm unit whilst in town on business. It's an older motel, but you can tell the owners care for it a lot. Very tidy, well looked after. Great location right in town. Owners prefer you book direct, so much so they'll give you a cheaper rate! Can't complain about that!

Hosts very friendly and helpful. Great location - Very clean basic accommodation, but does have a small pool, a little tired in places but good for a night or two when visiting the area. Plenty of places to eat and drink in nearby location.

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...
