Barry and Sue are fantastic hosts. a wee out of the ordinary chore completed for us made the trip more special. Very tidy unit, quiet and all the mod cons on hand. Will definitely be back! More than satisfied with the service and location. Top marks

We drove from Auckland to Tairua on the second day of our holiday in NZ. We didn’t know what to expect of motels but we were nicely surprised when we found a room that was just the ticket for a short stay. It was very clean and comfortable and had a good range of equipment, plus a table and chairs outside on a balcony. There is a guest laundry which is reasonably priced and well equipped plus a spa pool. The motel is within a short walk of the town which has a number of places to eat (including a great chippy) an ice-cream shop, bars, general shops, a supermarket and a bakery. There are also some lovely walks to the estuary and the beaches. The Coromandel is a beautiful part of NZ with lots of interesting places to visit. Wish we could have stayed longer. The owners of the motel were great hosts and provided lots of helpful information about our onward journey and local attractions.

Thank you Barry for accomodating my last minute phone request for a room. Wasn't too sure what to expect once we arrived but it was perfect and situated so close to everything. You were the perfect host by showing us the tourist spots and advice on where to go. We will definitely be back. Cheers, Ferlin

At first glance I wasn’t so sure - The room is a chalet - so close to the road but it wasn’t a problem! It was very comfortable, lovely bed & very, very clean. The owners obviously take pride in their accommodation. Warm welcome as well.
