Looked ok from the photos but when we arrived it had odd smell, ants on the wall, unsafe electrical cords (could see the copper wire), cockroachin the kitchen, paint flaking, furniture worn and just looking very tired and overpriced for what it was.

Run down and not maintained. Half eaten sweets in bedside table draw. Main roads front and back noise was unpleasant. Railway line at rear approximately 30 metres away, noise and motel shakes when train passes.

This motel is very dated. Room was comfortable enough if all you need is a bed to sleep in. The furniture was very tired, and the carpet was, unfortunately, disgusting (not possible to sugar coat that comment) - threadbare, full of stains, musty and in dire need of a shampoo. Good points: the bathroom and kitchen seemed clean enough, good shower pressure. Had to pick this motel due to other places being full, will not stay here again.

It's seen better days, run down, barest of cooking facilities left over from the 70's, light smell OF the 70s still lingering in the room, carpets stained & threadbare, and a thick sticky green lugee outside the front step that some kind soul had gifted us, but that can all be ignored if you just need a bed for the night. Unfortunately we were supposed to be there for 3 & we ran into a number of other issues. Lady at desk spoke poor english, didn't quite understand we needed a cot for the infant in our party or many of the issues we raised. Finally she clicked & tried to charge us for its use, even though we'd booked & paid for the infant prior. After a bit of back & forth & her checking the reservation several times, she graciously agreed not to charge us a $45 fee for the cot. The next issue - No high chairs at this place ... ok, we can deal with that if we have to, now I understand the stained carpets Next on the list - damp wet spots in the room & bed. This was a big one for us. She tried telling us the cleaners cleaned the room & it was OK, but we weren't keen on damp beds or carpets so were done, not suitable for children so we wanted to leave. Once she understood we wanted a refund she became quite annoyed, dismissive & kurt. After 20 minutes of her stalking up to the 2 rooms we had while we were packing up, presumably to ensure we didn't steal the mismatched towels or perhaps the hand wash that had a busted lid circa 1979, we finally got refunded. She then left the office without a word lol We're now in an entire 2 bedroom air bnb cottage with full facilities including cot & highchair, kayaks, toys & many other extras, with a killer view too .... for $150 cheaper. Sooo not sorry we left after spending a half hour at that 'Motel'

Called to ask for some information (nothing more), was hung up on twice and had no idea what the person on the other side of the phone was saying. Born and raised in Whangarei I know that I speak clearly and effectively but it seemed as though I wasn't being heard. Everything about the conversation was terrible, there was noise in the background and I was spoken over top of, after 5mins on the phone I didn't even get past saying my name and the date I wanted to check-in. Obviously, the conversation went no further and I will never be calling again.

I have stayed here before. Accomodating hosts that were helpful to us. Rooms are good. All the things one would need when moving about the country. Great shower pressure. Took a walk to find the seat above the motel. Last time I was here, that garden area has really been developed and in a beautiful way. Shot this photo from there.

Stayed here for a night whilst in a trip up North. The room was very basic but had everything you need for a short stay. It didn’t feel super clean, and it had a very unpleasant musty/sweaty odour to the room. The motel is in a good location, and offered plenty of parking spaces. The receptionist on duty was very friendly and helpful, and the resident cat is super cute (and welcoming!)

Worst customer service experience we have ever had in over 20 years of domestic and international travel. Booked, and had confirmed, two rooms. Arrived after a busy working day to be told “…you booked only one and we only have one available”. Showed them the Expedia booking confirmation for 2 rooms…………….. no apology, no remorse, no attempt to help to find an additional room somewhere in Whangarei for our second staff member. Next day was offered a “free room” to use in the future. Reluctantly accepted as after yesterdays debacle was not keen to return. Later that date noticed that the “free room” had actually been charged to our credit card. It seems wasn’t “free” at all but just the second room we had originally booked and which they now automatically charged to us. Asked for a refund of the second room to be told ‘OK, but we will withhold the $35 Expedia commission…”. In short THEIR serious mistake caused us massive grief and cost us $35. Even though the room was clean the whole facility is urgently in need of an update, described by our staff as “depressing and uncomfortable”, and with the most appalling customer service we have ever had. Don’t stay here………. Sleep in your car, on the beach or under a tree……….or drive to the next town, but don’t stay here. You have been warned!!!!!!!

Stayed here for one night on my way up north. Rooms are clean although basic. Well maintained my room had new aircon. Staff are friendly and helpful. Would stay here again for a night stop. There isn’t much around the location worthwhile mentioning but, it’s quiet though you get some noise from the rooms above.
