We stayed at this motel for the 1st time and have no hesitation in recommending it. As previous reviews have said, the harbour views and the size of the units are quite remarkable. It is a little way out of town but the units have cooking facilities so not a problem to bring food back.

We spent 4 nights here and were pleased we chose this Motel. A good sized Unit with wonderful views of the harbour. A King size bed in the large living room and 2 single beds in a separate bedroom. Good sized bathroom and heating is available as required. The free Wi-Fi worked okay but being a fairly isolated town top... More

My husband and I have just spent three nights at the Harbour View and really cannot add anything to the already excellent reviews posted. It is just lovely. The walks from the back of the motel were excellent. One was easy, the other, Harray's Track, a tad more challenging! But both were worthwhile. We also walked to the Driving Creek... More

Discovered this little bit of Paradise back in 2008.Since then have stayed about twelve times. It is great to get away from the bustle of city life and to just enjoy the peace and quiet and relax. The rooms are spacious and the view is very special.Everything is spotless and nothing too much trouble for the hosts Leanne and Des.(... More

Stayed here for two nights during our recent visit. The view is absolutely stunning across the bay from a lovely large and private decked area and the room very large with parking right outside. Would recommend the walk to town over the hill (ask at reception who were very helpful).

We stayed two nights at the Harbour View where we were incredibly lucky to get a room as we hadn't booked but were able to get a cancellation. This has to be the best motel I have ever stayed in. First, the welcome from Leanne and Des is warm and genuine. They really do want to make your stay a... More

Ticked all the boxes. Great accommodation, great hosts in Leanne and Des, fabulous views, and a couple of walking tracks leading right from the property. We wished we could have had longer at the Harbour View. Oh by the way the fish and chips from town were every bit as good as other reviewers have said...

We stayed here for 2 lovely nights. Upon arrival Leanne couldn't have been more helpful. After checking in we took the trail from behind the motel to town. We had a fabulous dinner at the Pepper Tree and then hiked back by the light of dusk to dark. The rooms all look out at the harbor/bay and it is very... More

This was our fifth stay here. This time, we stayed a fortnight at the start of our annual holiday to New Zealand. I think I'd make the 24-hour flight from London just to stay at the Harbour View.. Says it all really. The motel is great, the little town of Coromandel is a gem and the eastern side of the... More
