The hosts here were fantastic. They smoked some fish for us one night and taught us how to do it. Lovely and clean. Large pool. Good prices. Super friendly and lovely people running the place. One of the best places we've stayed.

This motel was lovely! It was very clean, close to restaurants and the beach. The common areas were well maintained and the rooms were very comfortable. A great getaway from Auckland. We would definitely stay there again.

A very comfortable stay in a handy location, even though the accommodation was full it was still very quiet. Close to shops and not far to the beach. Swimming pool and toddlers pool and spa were a great asset as it was a very hot weekend with a toddler.

“Rooms at the rear of the motel are best, in summer downstairs is better as it is cooler and easier with a toddler not to have stairs”

“It may be wise when busy to be away from the pool area. Patios away from the walkways at the rear car park are much larger.”
