Stayed with the family at Manganui Motel. Such a beautiful little spot, the room was big, clean and well equipped- especially for the reasonable price. The view is fantastic and being a close walk to the shops below made for a nice way to get the kids walking about. We all wished we had stayed on longer.

My husband & I have just spent 4 nights at the Mangonui Motel. What a fantastic place to stay. The views from our motel are amazing, the best views we have ever experienced. The hosts Chester and Debbie are so hospitable and the unit was spacious and very suitable for our needs. We hope to visit again in the future. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

What a fantastic choice to base ourselves here for 10 days while we explored Northland. Mangonui is a special place. It has a village feel with everything you need. Great eating spots and it took us until the last night to finally make it to The Thai restaurant (which was delicious) as we kept getting drawn to the Hotel (the best fish and chips and burgers). Little Kitchen was great for breakfast and The Waterfront Cafe does brilliant pizzas and muffins. And the 4 Square has everything you could want. All of this is just a short walk down the hill. We used the local track. Hosts Deb and Chester are wonderful. They work incredibly hard, but never seem hurried or rushed and share their knowledge of the area generously. We went to several of their suggestions and were very pleased we did. The Whaling Museum over at Hihi is well worth the visit. As is the Gumstore Bar and Grill in Totara North if you like a bit of history. The room had stunning views and was immaculately clean. We stayed in unit 6 and had 180 degree views. We looked down on the wharf, so there was always something going on. If you can drag yourself away from the windows, the internet and Sky are there as well. The room has everything you need, including a kitchen (which we didn't need with so many great eating places available) It was nice to have a seperate bedroom, with a comfy bed and those spectacular views. We will be back as there is still plenty left to do, and it is the perfect place to stay.

Winter - get out of big city - Mangonui Motel was our base to explore this beautiful part of the country. We could just have easily stayed at the motel. Views are spectacular, and access to the township very handy (although a walk up the hill at night requires a few stops). Chester and Deb (owners) are full of local knowledge and can offer suggestions to assist in your enjoyment of the stay. We borrowed some rods and headed of North for a fish (not going to brag). There is so much to see and do you will need/want more time. Cannot recommend highly enough. Will not be eating fish and chips for a while.
