We stayed over at a few places in New Zealand, but Lynn was the only one who emailed us prior to find out the specific bedding arrangements. I was really impressed. The rooms were very clean and well decorated. It was definitely our favourite accomodation this holiday.

I booked our 3 couples each in Standard Spa Studio Suites. At check-in, Lyn was such a warm, friendly and helpful host. It was Valentine's Day, and when she learned we didn't have a dinner reservation, she called all over Whangarei to find us a table for 6. What service! Our rooms were perfect - quiet, spacious, clean, comfortable, and...

Both Lyn and Jay were friendly and helpful. The place was impossibly clean and tidy. And they have a free laundry! What a pleasant surprise. Haven't stayed anywhere else in Whangarei, but have no idea why you would want to!

Bathroom is beautifully presented and so many lovely touches. Holder for candles, spa bath and modern shower with plenty of water pressure. There was an out door...

Our stay was just overnight and we were greeted by Lynn who provided us with a lovely appointed room. The bathroom was gorgeous and the shower as great. Would have liked to have stayed another night to try out the huge spa bath. Will be back definitely.

We just happened to stumble onto this gem on our trip in northern New Zealand. The attention to detail was amazing. We could not have felt more welcome. There were plenty of large towels, internet and AC. The owner even helped us plan our travels in the area. I have stayed at a lot of motels in my life in...

We stayed one night here on our way through to Paihai and arrived after a long day of delayed travel. Not sure of the lady's name who checked us in and out but she was great. Room was lovely. Extra little touches in the room made it feel very comfortable, homely and more than just a standard hotel room. Bed...

Good location, nice sized rooms with kitchen, dining table and lounge area. Lovely bathroom (bath and shower are awesome). Pool is smallish but absolutely fine to get wet and stay cool (the weather was very warm and humid). Small area for BBQ and seating under shade. Complimentary internet which worked well.

Beautifully presented motel at a very reasonable price. Little touches such as red roses finished the almost Grecian furnishings of the rooms. Very comfortable beds with air con and ceiling fans over the beds. Fully functioning kitchen with all you need. A heated pool and warm friendly welcome topped off an excellent venue.
