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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very happy with my stay here. A good strong shower and a great location, very close to the car ferry to Okiato. Much quieter than Paihia. Lovely to have real fresh milk instead of long life. Very nice couple. Thanks.

The motel is a short walk up Franklin Street from the marina. Rooms are large and comfortable. The kitchenette is convenient. The grounds are attractive with picnic benches. Shopping and food options are available at the marina.

Firstly, the owner is very helpful and secondly, what a great position. We used this as our night before the two day Twin Coast cycle ride where the start is just down the road. Also close to the Cruising Club for dinner and the ferry to Russell. Clean and comfortable, what else do you need.

This small motel is very comfortable and conveniently located just above the marina and car ferry to Russell. Leah was incredibly helpful and very flexible, as we were on a sailing trip and had to come back and forth at short notice due to the weather conditions. Thank you Leah!
