Breakers offers a little more than most motels- warm, cosy rooms,l; spam pool and a large outdoor swimming pool. We enjoyed our short stay. The fishing club and the Thai Restaurant have the best food. The city center is a fifteen minute walk from the motel.

We chanced upon Whangamata and it must be a contender for NZ's best kept secret. It is stunningly beautiful even by NZ standards. This motel is situated at the marina end of town so walk from there along the shore of the river, past the $1m+ houses to the river mouth where the river is impossibly green. Continue along the...

My husband and I stayed for one night with our one year old. Couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. We were given the option of choosing which room we preferred. The spa on the balcony was so lovely. Well appointed room with everything we needed, lovely spacious bathroom. Would definitely come back.

Fantastic place to stay. Hosts were lovely and friendly and location is perfect. View of the Marina from our upstairs apartment and a short walk into town, even less to the supermarket. The room was clean and spacious and the private spa on the balcony was a great way to end the day. Amazing pool and playground and very quiet....

Pleasantly surprised with this motel ... a family business, very friendly, service was excellent, room was comfortable and very clean. Located by the marina, so a fair distance to walk to the main strip, but not a problem if you have a car. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed for one night in February 2015. Lovely clean and comfortable room, welcoming and friendly staf. Can't recommend this motel highly enough. If in Whangamata look no further. Quiet location, own car park.

This motel was superb - staff were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in an upstairs room with a view over the pool area which is a lovely area. The spa pool on the deck was brilliant. The room was a good size, lovely bathroom, very clean & tidy. TV in the bedroom for the kids was great.

We read the reviews and wow this family affair business is just magic. We have 3 children of different ages and everyone had a wonderful time. The location, style and owners are one in a million. I also had the most lovely massage with the owners daughter in law and she was also incredible. We would go back to this...

What a surprise it was to find Breakers along from the marina. Lovely large rooms with really comfortable deep beds and doors opening on to a cute swimming pool at the back. My sons room had a spa bath outside. So clean with crisp white linen, TV, kitchen and cooking equipment and a large bathroom at a most reasonable rate....

We stayed one night at the Breakers Motel, and it was a wonderful experience. Marie was very welcoming, and gave us great tips on good restaurants (Argo for dinner, SixFourSix for breakfast) and grocery stores in town, including detailed walking directions. Our room was on the 2nd floor, with great views of the pool and marina beyond. We also thoroughly...
