Travelled for seven hours with my two young children and stayed here for the night before we carried on north to BOI. The king studio is on the ground level and it was very clean and comfortable after a long time on the road. Kids and I had a lovely rest and refreshed before heading out to visit family for dinner. It was a bit too cold and wet for a swim, however we had a lovely nights’ sleep and beautiful hot showers in the morning. We also stayed here in Dec 2018 in the two bedroom unit upstairs which we loved, and have booked an overnight stay again for the four of us this Christmas. The convenience of the washing machine and dryer is fantastic too. The staff are friendly and very helpful, and checking in and out is seamless. If you’re looking for a spotless, comfortable and reasonably priced place to stay in Whangarei, then I highly recommend booking here.

Family of 3 (1 13 yr old) stayed here two nights, after having this place recommended to me by two different people. It was great to pull up and meet the wonderful Monica, who was very friendly and helpful. Our room - a one bedroom with beds for up to 5 people - was really clean, and the beds were all comfortable. We found it pretty quiet too. The location was handy to everything, but the best bit is that it is walking distance to the best Thai food you will ever have in your life - Suk Jai! Wifi was effective for our needs. Our crazy child used the pool, even though it was cold (we were there right before the weather turned warmer), and we all enjoyed the spa pool, especially after downhill riding the monster scooters at Heads Up. We would happily stay here again!

My family (with 12 & 10 year olds) stayed in one room for 2 nights. It wasn't cramped, it was comfy and the caretakers were lovely. Pricing, while high, seemed right for the season and how full the hotels were. The road noise was a bit more than we would have liked, but it was quiet overnight. The pool wasn't heated when we were there, but the kids had fun and the jacuzzi was a plus. Good food & grovery stores in walking distance (2-3 blocks).

We stayed in the house next to the complex. Very tidy & clean . Was definitely big enough for a family of five. Used the pool but unfortunately we were out of season for it to be heated . Friendly host.

Response from timoti_h2002, Manager at Continental Motel
Responded 6 Oct 2019
thanks and glad you enjoyed. We have lots of sports teams who use the house as the managers quarters as the lounge is big, so there is plenty of room for team meetings. Apologies about the pool, as we recently had to have the heat pump replaced and the spa retiled. If you come again, you'll be able to use it anytime!!
