Loved our stay here in a two bedroom unit. Plenty of space and everything you need. So close to the centre of town (1min walk). The pool is heated too so could easily of gone swimming even at this time of year. All staff were friendly and helpful. Can't wait to come back.

We love this place, always clean, staff helpful and friendly, good parking and convenient location. We don’t however love the new units, will request old ones in future. They are fresh and well appointed, great bathrooms, beds and pillows but we found the black decor oppressive. Also we heard very clearly EVERYTHING that was said in the unit next door and the guests walked past our only windows to go to and from their units. We will continue to go here but be careful not to get the new units.

Just a hundred or so metres from the main road mean that this Motel is very popular. We stayed in one of the three recently completed executive suites, the room was very nice and ticked all the boxes. AC, Fridge freezer, Microwave, Jug & Toaster. The bed was large with great linen the bathroom & shower were great. Outside we had table & chairs and shared BBQ. Finishing touch Robes & Slippers

We stayed at the motel for one night during our family Matakana weekend. We had the 2 bedroom unit and found it to be extremely tidy , well looked after and with a good bathroom. It was also very sunny and warm. It was in a great location to walk to the weekend markets and the small shopping area that makes up the Matakana village. Hubby and son were happy as it had sky sports for the transtasman rugby! Very happy with our stay.
