Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife was admitted to hospital for major emergency surgery. I needed a base close to the hospital and having stayed at Stonehaven it was high on my list of places to stay to avoid having to travel an hour each way to visit the hospital Dave was extremely accommodating and the room rate was great value. The ground floor studio had everything I needed for an extended stay. Room was super clean great linens and very comfy queen bed. Within walking distance to two large supermarkets and a couple of restaurants close by. Highly recommend Stonehaven

Easy place to stay, book on the website because it's cheaper. Very friendly owners and great value for money. Clean and tidy with very good service. Close to the city and supermarkets. Decor is straight out of the 70s but that's not a bad thing. Highly recommended.

Roomy, comfortable, plenty of facilities, well located on a main street, this is worth checking out. A bit of road noise overnight. Price probably at the high end for the quality provided. Could do with some modernisation soon. Helpful staff.

In my opinion New Zealand doesn't have great motels or hotels, because of lack of interest and service. This place is different. Its the first place we stayed in that was decent and the owner/manager was really genuinely nice and helpful. Keep up the good work and we hope to see you in the near future again. The motel itself is very central or at least central enough to either walk to where you want to be or take a short drive.

Stayed here for one night to break the journey back from Ahipara to Auckland. The motel is situated about a five minute drive from the centre of Whangarei and is easy to find. The rooms are on ground and first floor and there is parking for one car per room. We had a two bedroom upstairs room which had a large lounge with flat screen TV with plenty of Channels to choose from, a separate kitchen with all you would need to cater for yourself, although we didn’t use this, apart from boiling a kettle to make coffee (provided). The queen bed we used was very comfortable and the bathroom had a strong shower over a small tub. There are one or two restaurants within walking distance should you not want to cook. The lack of air conditioning did not seem to be a problem with plenty of ventilation from open windows if required, and the location, even though on quite a busy road, was not at all noisy.

We had two rooms. Both were very clean and we were given new towels each day. Only complaint is that there is no air conditioning conditioning but there was a nice fan in each room. I’d stay here again without hesitation

Thank you, we have looked at air conditioning but the cost of staying here would increase. We find the fans are adequate. We are currently very well priced for what we have to offer. Regards Dave

Comfortable and very clean rooms; beds are excellent. Satff very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Different room options available: fully fitted kitchens or kitchenette. Two supermarkets are across the road; drive to CBD only a few minutes. Forest, mountain and river walks are nearby and a real treasure trove of singing birds and native trees. A real pleasure to stay here. Laundrette about 300 metres away. Numerous restaurants nearby. Great choice!

I have stayed in a number of hotels in Whangarei. This is by far the best venue I have stayed in. We were In Whangarei for a Hikoi to the far north with our father whom is terminally ill. The owner greeted us with a warm welcome. Went out of his way to set up and clean the BBQ for our family. Facilities were very clean and good access for my father whom was in a wheelchair. *****Would highly recommend ********

Had not booked ahead and most hotels were booked out. Had driven past it and didn’t look flash...but found out they are renovating the roof and outside...hence why the scaffolding around it. Very basic rooms BUT very clean, comfortable and friendly people. Walking distance to pub in Kensington.

We stayed here over New Years for 2 nights and we were hoping for a quiet couple of nights - despite it being NYE we got the restful nights we were looking for. Dave was pleasant and helpful at check in and check out. The room was very clean and the room was serviced as we were there more than 1 night. There was also the added bonus of sky tv which worked with no issues. You can walk into Whangarei in about 20 mins and the nearest food and supermarkets are about 5 mins walk. Highly recommend!
