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.

One of the main things we look for when motelling is a comfortable bed and Barringtons Motor Lodge Whakatane provides this - we slept well both nights of our stay.
As provided a microwave, hobs and electric frypan were all we needed in the kitchen. The unit is clean and tidy. Even though the motel is situated on the main road into Whakatane our room was quiet. It is only a short drive to the shopping centre so is in a handy position. Sue the receptionist is lovely and it was a pleasure to meet her.

This is one of the top motels we have stayed in. Beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, excellent shower pressure. Lovely big rooms and Kaye and John are so friendly and welcoming. Very highly recommend this motel to anyone staying in the Whakatane area. Thanks again foe the incredible hospitality.

Spent 1 night here on a recent weekend trip to Whakatane. Was allocated a King studio (rm 12) which was comfortable & spacious and relatively quiet.
Comfortable bed & more than adequate kitchenette with m/wave & hot plates plus fridge.

We needed to stop in Whakatane to break a long trip. Pleasant enough, with a well-appointed room and a helpful person on reception. Unfortunately the room was right on the busy road with no sound insulation at all. In addition there was a connecting door to the next room which meant we had to endure someone else's TV noise until very late. The rooms at the rear of the complex may be better.

Most motels in NZ are clean and have good facilities. Wi-Fi was super quick for work. The locations here is great.

What sets them apart is the level of friendly, welcoming service. We were a touring couple on motorcycles and she understood motorcyclist are anxious about the security of the bikes. She offered options park out of view including her garage.

The lady was lovely with us and we are looking to rebook on the return journey.

Barringtons Motor Lodge was our best value stay during our trip to the North Island. The motel is clean and tidy, the beds are comfortable, the lady at the desk was very helpful and friendly. The kitchenette had everything we needed to cook and eat an easy dinner. There even was a spa bath and a shower. We booked direct with them via phone and it couldn't have been easier. No Airbnb charge, our own space, it was just functional and we had a great stay. Many thanks!

We stayed here for one night, had a king room and enjoyed our stay. Sue is a very friendly host, the room was well priced and everything was spotlessly clean. Aircon was on so it was a cosy feeling to arrive here after a long drive. Very quiet as well, we can only recommend the place.

Room Tip: if a non smoker it would be best to ask for a room away from the allocated area.
