Loved our holiday here. Very handy to the beach, lovely cafe across the road. Lots of places to explore near by.
Motel room was very clean and spacious and we felt it was good value for our money. We would definitely stay there again.
My partner and I stayed in the (very clean!) one-bedroom downstairs unit last weekend for my nephew's first birthday party and it was wonderful! Our family members all had different units but we were able to congregate together in the shared outdoor facilities (BBQ Area, reserve out the front) to spend time together, and wander back to our rooms for a break if we needed. The beach was less than a 1-minute walk from our room which made for a lovely morning swim. The whole entire vibe of the motel was relaxing, comfortable, and 'beachy' but the rooms felt like we were in a hotel, not a motel. It reminded me of our classic Kiwi bach we used to reunite together as a family on Waiheke growing up. 100% recommend coming here for a holiday and staying at the Ruakaka Beach Front Motel!
We did a roundtrip at the North Island . We saw quite a few hotels and so far this is the best equipped, functional apartment we have stayed. It has a nice big living room with new modern furniture. The bedroom has a nice size and enough storage. The bathroom is newly done. The hotel has direct beach access ( white sandy long streched beach) . A nice apartment even for a longer stay. We stayed 3 nights there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in one of the two bedroom apartments downstairs.
The rooms have been modernised and are very lovely and clean.
The location is perfect for the beach and it is great being able to have parking directly outside our room.
We look forward to our next stay!
Great Host and Staff. We stayed for nearly a week (due to Family gathering) in one of the renovated Suits, upstairs in the block facing the beach. Double Bed in One room - Three Singles in the other - open Lounge/Dining - New Kitchen and bathroom - WOW what a difference from those still to be done (another two more were finished while we were there) - We were away just about every day by 9 and back late so we wern't disturbed by the work/ers going on around use.
