We drove from Auckland to Tairua on the second day of our holiday in NZ. We didn’t know what to expect of motels but we were nicely surprised when we found a room that was just the ticket for a short stay. It was very clean and comfortable and had a good range of equipment, plus a table and chairs outside on a balcony. There is a guest laundry which is reasonably priced and well equipped plus a spa pool.
The motel is within a short walk of the town which has a number of places to eat (including a great chippy) an ice-cream shop, bars, general shops, a supermarket and a bakery. There are also some lovely walks to the estuary and the beaches.
The Coromandel is a beautiful part of NZ with lots of interesting places to visit. Wish we could have stayed longer.
The owners of the motel were great hosts and provided lots of helpful information about our onward journey and local attractions.

Thank you Barry for accomodating my last minute phone request for a room. Wasn't too sure what to expect once we arrived but it was perfect and situated so close to everything. You were the perfect host by showing us the tourist spots and advice on where to go. We will definitely be back. Cheers, Ferlin

At first glance I wasn’t so sure - The room is a chalet - so close to the road but it wasn’t a problem!
It was very comfortable, lovely bed & very, very clean. The owners obviously take pride in their accommodation.

Warm welcome as well.

Easy access to all the local sites.
Clean well equipped room with comfortable bed.
Very friendly owner with lots of good local advice. Including for hot water beach.
Good value, would be perfect with a/c. Room fan was noisy.
The town is quite low key but has all you need, including fuel, a small supermarket and restaraunts.
A great base from which to explore.

This is our second stay here and we weren’t disappointed. Owners Sue and Barry are so friendly and helpful and are doing a great job making sure everything is just right.

Our detached King Chalet was very spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped.

The bed was very comfortable; wonderful shower with frequent change of big fluffy towels; gorgeous hot tub with more fresh towels; plenty of windows and a room fan to keep you cool.

Separate towels and a spade are even provided for a visit to Hot Water Beach which is a must.

The motel is very well placed for all the restaurants and other amenities in Tairua. There’s a lovely beach just across the footbridge and it’s a very pleasant walk to the main Ocean Beach and marina.

It’s next to the main road so expect some road noise during the day but it all quietens down at night so it’s not a problem.

We had a great stay here and would love to return.

Hi Paulina Sorry can't manage that one for you. If you look on our website you can see all our rooms that are available. The family unit that is available for the first two of those dates is priced for minimum of four people, after that we have a studio available. Kind regards Barry and Sue
