this motel is right by the beach, and as such was the perfect place to chill and go down to the beach as often as we wanted during the day. Nice comfortable rooms, tastefully decorated units, updated bathrooms, and all the basics you need to cook and eat. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and resolved any small issues quickly and with a smile. Recommended!!!!!!!

Amazing location with a great view. Loved walking across the grass straight on to the beach. Stayed in an upstairs apartment which was clean, comfortable and modernised. Super comfy bed. Friendly service too! Definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful holiday with friends and family for 50th birthday and they accommodated us wonderfully. Nothing was an issue. Would highly recommend. We had the house as well as a few units and they were all clean and tidy, just a hop and skip to the beach and a great reserve in front for the family cricket match.

Nice motel set on the beach front. Absolutely incredible beach and bay with the Ruakaka wildlife refuge 500 m away. We loved watching the NZ dotterels nesting in fenced off areas. Lucky enough also to see a pod of dolphins swim by 75m off the beach itself. Northlands best kept secret! We enjoyed the friendly staff and nothing was too much bother. We were comfortable in the facility. We were glad of a car to get to the local supermarket and restaurants nearby.
