Reviewed 8 September 2017 via mobile

We stayed in this motel for just one night during the off season, but we're pleased with what we found. We'd echo much of what others have said about this motel--clean, well-equipped, well-managed and just a short pleasant walk from the beach. Don't hesitate to book this motel. Highly recommended.

We booked a one bedroom here for three days with our two kids and loved it very much.
The Manager upgraded us to a two bedroom which the kids enjoyed having their own beds instead of sleeping on the couch bed. Electric blankets was a hit and the equiped kitchnette came in very handy.
Rooms are clean and tidy which are serviced daily and there is sitting outside so you can enjoy the lovely view of the bay.
It's a 5 minute walk to the beach and playground and there a shops and restaurant right across the road.
Pool and hot spa also onsite and kids enjoyed the trampoline as well.

Definitely require a car for travel to beach or restaurants and wineries. Service was good. The room was clean and quite comfortable. We travelled to nearby town for dinner, off season for beach but did have a look.

Room Tip: Room with a view of bay.

Loved this motel, Jo was super friendly and helpful, rooms clean, bed comfy, had everything we needed and more. Great location, across from shops and up the road from the beach (which also has an awesome playground) with great views. Has a trampoline!! My kids didn't want to get off it or leave. Great location to explore the Matakana region. Would definitely recommend this motel for families - can't wait to come back and explore more of this lovely area.

Nice roomy apartment, nothing flash but very comfortable and suitable for what we needed.
Jo the manager was very friendly and gave us lots of tips for what to do and where to eat.
The only gripe would be that the wifi kept dropping out, not the end of the world and certainly not enough to worry us on our weekend away, just a bit frustrating at times.
On the whole a nice wee place to stay.
