Motel accommodation isn't always what you hope for but Paku Lodge was simply a delight in every respect. Tairua is a quiet friendly and picturesque location, time seems to slow down in the Coromandel. Right from the moment we were greeted by our host we knew we were in for a treat. Check in was easy and the unit had... More

Checked into this Resort late afternoon the evening of the "super moon". It is located on the water with only a small access road separating it from the beach and walkways. Truly gorgeous setting. We were in Suite 1 and it had incredible large windows and beautiful views. A great vantage Point for a sunset. Only a minutes drive from... More

This motel is one of the best we have stayed in so far and the price reflects a far superior room rate, we had the front room upstairs and the view out the windows was fantastic, it is just a short drive to town for breakfast but the quiet road in front of the motel is just that, this is... More

It's a privat and beautiful location. Not far from town and easy to get around . Host is very friendly and the place is clean, nicely furnished and has a kitchen. A bit in the pricey side but hey we are here to enjoy ourselves .

Awesome location, lovely view and so quiet too. Great for a relax no matter the weather. Older kids were able to play down on safe beach while mum & dad watched from balcony. Beautiful place for some nice walks and not far to other wonderful beach spots.

Units were spacious, well furnished & clean. Our family had 2 units, both with lovely views over the bay. We had planned to use the free kayaks, but the tide was very low when we arrived, and we had to leave the next day before the water was deep enough. There is no where for children to play in the...

Nice welcoming place to stay, room had an awesome view of the harbour. Rooms needed a bit of airing and a little rough around the edges but cant fault the friendly service. Would definitely stay again. Very affordable accommodation for a weekend away.

The first impression of any accommodation is important. The location is good but the personal welcome lacked enthusiasm or effort. A friendly smile would have helped after a long day of travel. We booked & had 'confirmed' 2 -one bedroom apartments for family through 'Booking.com' website. On double checking our accommodation before leaving home, we found that even though the... More
