We travel a lot around the country for my husband's work. Barrington's was a beautiful place to stay and the Manager (Sue) was fabulous as were the staff who work there. Had to move from one room to another during our stay there and went from fabulous to fantastic. Would recommend anyone to stay there. Everything is absolutely top notch.

Very friendly manager, who went out of her way to help us. Motel is very clean, comfortable and spacious and excellent value for money. Good location, close to whakatane. Easy access on the main road.

This Motel was nicely maintained. The lady on reception was very pleasant and welcoming. The double room we had was very clean and well furnished with everything you would require. We had a very comfortable nights rest. It is a "no frills" type of motel, you could order breakfast if you wished and they would deliver it to your room,...

We have stayed at this motel on several occasions and likewise on this occasion the room was spacious, clean and tidy and located on the main road for convienence. Previously we have visited in autumn or winter but on this occasion, in summer, the rooms were too hot and stuffy with no aircon or ceiling fan. There was a fan...

Stayed recently during the New Year period and would highly recommend to travellers. We were hosting by Sue (motel manager) who couldn't do enough to insure we were accommodated and looked after. Thank you Sue😊 - Your genuine customer service was appreciated.

We were surprised by the size of the room and en suite, they were quite spacious, certainly for the two of us. It was all you could ask, clean and modern. The only problem we had was that outside of our room (5), there was a table and chairs for guests, so you could hear their conversations in our room...

Home when we returned to New Zealand after 5 years in Queensland. Acclimatised quickly and realised we are back home for good. Barrington motor lodge welcomed us to our new home. We liked the quiet yet central location that we rented a house in the same street thereafter

I travel all over the country with work, and Whakatane is one of my regular stops. Wherever I go I look for high quality accommodation at reasonable prices. For the last ten years I have used Barringtons exclusively when in the Whakatane area. The accommodation is clean, modern, spacious and comfortable. I think I've stayed in every room over the...
