Only good thing about the place was the Local ex manager of the facility who helps out the owner with bookings. The water pressure for the shower doesn't exsist, you would have a better shower under the kitchen sink tap. Also no hot water. Would never stay there again.
The motel room was very clean and a great position with sea views. Unfortunately the wifi did not work and the room was super cold. There is a heat pump however it did not heat all the unit. Luckily we were travelling with woolen blankets!
Pleasant stay. Stayed in unit 3. It consisted of a double and single bed, shower, kitchen area with microwave and fridge, tv with digibox and had free wifi. It had lots of parking spaces and had multiple tables and chairs outside the rooms. They offer free use of their kayaks and spades to use to dig hot pools at Ocean Beach.
Not having been to NZ before or flown that far we booked this place to stay in for the first night It is off the beaten track so far in fact people although polite and welcoming did say “what are you doing here” It is lovely and a run down the coast set us up for a sense of the beautiful scenery we would continue to see The motel though is a bit 60’s we would recommend taking insect repellant as the big screens are a bit past their sell by date I would go back but it is quite Funky” in an unstylish sort of way The boat club does great food and is a great place to go
It looks as if nothing has been done to the motel since it was built in the 1950’s (except new sheets). To say that the place is tired only gives a glimpse of the problems. It needs gutting and new furniture, electrics and drapes. Basically it’s backpacker standard but charging motel prices. On the plus side the lady who met us was friendly and helpful. Kawhia has great charm but there are not many options for accommodation. Give this one a miss unless you are desperate.
