Linda our host was friendly and helpful, the units were clean and tidy, beds were comfy. My friends and I had a great fishing weekend there. The fish filleting facilities were excellent, as they disposed of the carcasses for us. The motel is a quick walk into town. We have booked in again for next year.

This was a very average place to stay with nothing too good or bad about it (apart from the free Wifi only lasting 30min). The beds were comfy and the room was clean but the walls are very thin if you have noisy neighbours and the common space can be right out the front of your room (depending on what...

Nothing to complain about this place. The location it's just perfect, 2 mins walk from the centre and close to all the ameneties, the owners are very nice and our room was just spotless (as well as the kitchen), with new furnitures and really comfortable maitresses. The rooms are cozy too and despite we chose a twin one, there were...

The first place we came to in Coromandel after a misty drive from Whitianga. Very friendly woman at reception who showed us where to park our camper for the night. Clean ablution areas and a short walk to town for fish and chips! Located on the main road into Coromandel but set well back so was very quiet.

We have stayed here many times. Tony an Linda are brilliant hosts. Facilities are always clean an tidy. Great place to spend a weekend or longer stay, lovely park like grounds for camping. Great set up for a fishing trip away with plenty of space to park your boat. Highly recommended

I hadn't been camping for years. So I was pleasantly surprised to discover full toilet and bathroom facilities in impeccable condition. As well as a common room and kitchen area, and internet access to sate my tech appetite as well. If tents aren't your thing, motel style rooms are available. There was plenty of space for tents, caravans, and the...

A simple, tidy, cost-effective place to stay. I think best for short visits. Very close to Coromandel town. The facilities are kept clean, and the communal spaces do the job effectively. I enjoyed my stay, and would happily go there again.

The staff were friendly, the room was clean and modern, the bed was comfortable. The kitchen area was a little on the small side but had everything you need in it, the bathrooms again were not so big but clean and looked after. Good place to stay on a budget if you want to explore the coromandel

Headed with the family for a camping weekend, the campground is well spaced out, which is great, no overcrowding! They only have 2 showers and toilets for both sexes so sometimes there was a wait for a shower! There was a filleting station and freezers to use which was excellent for 2 days fishing we had. Charges were based on...
