It’s a strange mix of some freshly painted areas and some carpet/lino from 1970s. It is an old place that needs some TLC, but still ok for resting your head for the night. Ants did attack a food scrap at lightening speed. Don’t expect too much and you will be just fine.

We had travelled around the East Cape and had no cellphone reception all day. The very friendly and gracious lady at Ranui Motel saved us from spending the night in the car, after everything was closed just after 9pm! She came down from her home, opened reception, checked us into a splendid 2-bedroom apartment, all for a very reasonable price. The bed was the most comfortable ever and the place spotlessly clean and tidy. Will only stay here when I come to Opotiki again!

The reception staff were friendly and helpful and this does go a long way to making anyone's stay pleasant, however the room is small and basic with no wardrobe and a TV that did not work properly. The outdoor wicker chairs had worn through so bits of wood had been screwed over them - very uncomfortable to sit on. Even replacing the thin towels would be a start, but this motel, although of an older style, does need updating.

One night for three people found this establishment to be clean and tidy, staff very good. Our unit was close to the main road which is quite busy even in the evening, so if possible avoid the first unit.
