8/10 Very Good

Nice view of the beach having a private balcony was a plus

6/10 Good

Great views and beach front, heated pool. Good proximity to beach, walkway and town. Locks were very tricky to open when entering room. Old furniture and attention to detail needs updating such as, marks on carpets, seals have peeling glue on door frames, patch ups on spa bath, water damage on cupboard. Cleaning and dusting things like conservatory windows and lamp would give a cleaner appearance. All in all a good stay which was convenient to beach and town.

A nice place to stay, great service
This motel is very nice and tidy, the room is clean and the kitchenette area has everything that is needed. only a few minutes from the main township via car. have stayed here before and recommend it. We had a incident, not the motels fault, but they were kind enough to provide 2 x breakfast vouchers for a local cafe. They had no obligation to do this at all but their kind gesture was appreciated and reflects the great service we received. We'd recommend this motel and will stay again if we plan to head back to Whitianga

10/10 Exceptional

The location of this place was great, walking distance to shops and cafes, an easy stroll long the waterfront. The studio room we had was ideal for our needs, compact yet spacious. The sea views were mesmerising. Didn't hear or notice the traffic below. Friendly staff. Bed was a bit soft for me. No info in the room re working out tv, remotes etc, eventually managed to get into our netflix account. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks!
