Mangonui Motel is a gem. The views from every room in our upstairs room were simply stunning, the comfort and decor were great, but the crowning glory is the attention to detail, care and kindness of the owners, Chester and Debbie. Our two night stay was a highlight of our far north holiday. The hints and advice offered by Debbie helped us find local spots to pause at on our way up to Cape Reinga. Our unit was spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable and well appointed. To emphasise just how great our experience here was, after we left an electrical appliance behind, Chester posted it across the country to our home, and would not accept reimbursement of his costs. Fantastic .

I booked 6 rooms and we arrived for 3 nights in march. The rooms were fantastic and every room had amazing views of the harbour. The hosts were lovely and made us very welcome. We were on Harleys so the only negative we had is that the drive in is quite steep and the surface was loose gravel which made handling pretty exciting. Would not be an issue for vehicles though. Highly recommend this place and we will definitely stay again

A last minute overnight stop in Mangonui, we were delighted that our motel find was such a great one and just perfect for what we needed after a day's driving. The owners were lovely and very helpful. Great value too! Cosy unit that had everything we needed. The TV/SKY instructions were super helpful, as was the excellent quality frypan and cooking utensils. Wow-factor water & hill views, beautiful sunrise, quiet spot, warm and comfortable beds. Attention to detail is great. We'll be back :)

Sweet place to stay with everything you need, and that view! Both sides, relaxing long stretches of ocean with soft foot hills rolling out of the ocean. Cindy beds and isolated from any highway road noise, so a good chance of nice restful sleep.

My husband and I stayed there on our way up to the Cape Reinga. Stunning views and a two minute walk into town. Spacious clean unit with a large comfy bed. Debbie and Chester were really welcoming and had local advice to enrich our stay. Would definitely recommend.

Very welcoming hosts to this gem of a motel. The views are just amazing. We could sit here for hours just taking it all in. The provided facilities are excellent with comfortable beds, clean and tidy rooms. All freshly painted and an atmosphere that shows that our hosts really care. Very good value for money. We will be back.

We spent 3 days based at Manganui as we toured Northland. Fantastic views from our unit not only out to Doubtless Bay but also of the working wharf below. Accommodation was excellent and the host very helpful and talkative. Great options for dinning nearby either via walk down well lit path or short car ride. The meal at Waterfront Cafe & Bar was exceptional. We did most of the Heritage trail which passes right by the Motel which is very interesting. If you are into walking, its an easy walk to the nearby pa site and Coopers beach.

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.
