Your hosts, Monica and Tim, welcome you to the Continental Motel and look forward to bringing you great value and service. We are conveniently nestled halfway between Regent and Kensington, giving easy access to the city centre, our popular Town Basin, sports grounds, restaurants and supermarkets. We are easy to find – just look for the flags! The Continental has recently been refurbished and the units are spacious, clean, fresh and modern, each with full kitchen facilities. The heated salt-water pool (in summer) and spa and garden allow you to relax and have fun, and the FREE WiFi will keep you connected. We also have a purpose-built accessibility unit with easy wheelchair access and other appropriate facilities for a comfortable stay. Whangerei has hundreds of beautiful beaches, some of the best diving in the world, tranquil native bush walks and caves to discover. We are only an hour's drive from the beautiful Bay of Islands. Make Whangarei your base to see the North.

Still has the same lovely owners with David the new manager who is friendly and helpful. Premises are very clean and tidy. Good size rooms. The pool and spa area are inviting. Great wifi signal strength. Being off the main state Highway means you do not get heavy night traffic
