Excellent for a budget stay close to the waterfront area. Plenty of shops and restaurants very close. Some parts of the motel are older. Everything you need is there. As a group of two couples we took two studio rooms overlooking the road. There was a deck area with a large table and umbrella which was perfect for meals. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

A basic but clean and tidy motel with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Supermarkets, shops and activities are all very close. There was a few issues with the WiFi dropping out, and there is only a few SKY channels, but all in all I would stay again.

We had a very quiet unit at the back of the site which was clean and comfortable. However we were a bit disturbed by a noisy celebration one night from a party which we believe was connected to the owner which didn't go on till late, but the owner went out of her way to apologise the next day which was really appreciated. Whilst we were provided with helpful information at check in, there was a communication difficulty when we asked where the nearest pharmacy was, to be told it was in Keri-Keri, despite it being only a few hundred yards down the road! Overall, however, we would recommend this accommodation as it is good value for money.

We stayed here three years ago and chose to stay there again because of its excellent location but the motel is now looking "tired" and we would look elsewhere next time. The ownership had also changed from a very friendly New Zealand family to an efficient but absolutely no sense of humour Asian family, which is a second reason that we would look elsewhere next time.
