Very good beach side accommodation
Very good, clean, older style motel, just across the road from the beach and within easy reach of town. On a hot day, the air con. was a blessing.

Across road from Waikanae beach & boardwalk
A pleasant enough & spacious motel. Dated but tidy & a few minutes drive to town centre. Microwave the only cooking other than jug & toaster. Pets by arrangement.

Good overnight stay
Stayed overnight on the way from Napier to Auckland. We had the sea view room (seemed to be the only one unit), but there's sea is a distance away as there were other motels across the road that blocked most of the view. This motel is within a short walking distance to the beach. There's a room with double bed for us and our daughter slept at the sofa (blankets and pillows are available for that) in the living room. There's a convection stove, a microwave, electric kettle, fridge, dining ware, enough stuff to prepare breakfast. The lady at the reception is friendly and helpful with directions and recommendations.
