A great clean, spacious, quiet motel that is really good value for money. Highly recommended. It's an older motel but with that you get a solidly built structure (and therefore helps it to be nice and quiet) that is warm and has really good sized rooms, kitchen and bathroom. The rooms are provisioned with everything you need. Super friendly and helpful hosts.

We (three Whakatane senior trampers) stayed at the Ariki for the nights before and after a few nights in the Tararua bush country. We appreciated the friendly reception and always prompt service by Ray, and loved the well appointed unit including fresh coffee, the washing and drying facilities on site, as well as the ample parking space. Ray let us park our car on site while we were away tramping. The motel is very close to the centre of town with a brewery / pub just across the road. The room was spotlessly clean.

Love this motel - warm welcome and easy access parking which isn’t something we have found on our jaunt around NZ in the Chev. Beautifully clean, older style unit but immaculate - unlike our tired, shabby rooms at the Brentwood in Kilbirnie last night which were similar vintage but no comparison. A guest Laundry, pegs and clothesline in the sunshine. We were tempted by the inviting pool but this is still Wellington and not quite Summertime yet. The grounds and gardens are very nice and the tuis are flitting about. It has been interesting to stay at many smaller places this trip and experience such great hospitality and apart from our Brentwood experience we have discovered some true kiwi gems well worth coming back to.

Ariki Lodge is close to the train and bus routes and less than a 2 minute walk to restaurants and supermarkets. My room was clean and tidy,water pressure was good, and the surroundings were really pretty. Thanks for the hospitality, team!

Nice friendly people running this motel. We had a unit with a queen bed and a single for our daughter. Lovely comfy room with good kitchen facilities and tv for rugby :). Very close proximity to food and supermarkets for dinner and breakfast. Had a good quiet nights sleep before heading back on the road. Would have been happy if it was longer but not this time. Would definately come again. Thanks guys.
