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.

We arrived late but the staff were super friendly. This is a very tidy and roomy motel. The bathroom is fitted with a large spa pool which was a bonus. The beds were comfy and offered 2 thickness of pillows which is also great. We will recommend this motel to others.

Room Tip: I couldn’t turn the heat pump fan down..so turned it off and used the small heater in the wardrobe.

We stayed here one night on our way east. We felt very welcomed and looked after on arrival. The room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Our host gave us lots of information on what to do and where to eat. We hadn’t been to Whakatāne before but really liked it. The beach at Ohope beach was great. We really recommend this motel.

High attention to detail, ensuring guests have all they need & more. Great customer service and amenities. Carpets have just been redone, and SKY Movies - need I say more? If we are in town again we will definitely stop by...

A very basic studio room with no cooking, had a microwave but no microwave dishes. Cleaners need more training, dirty tissues in cupboard, kitchen floor dirty. Very thin walls, can hear doors slamming, babies crying .

Stopped here last night. Clean so a good point. Bed OMG felt like all the springs had failed. NOISE I think beneficiaries are living here. Woken by room 4 an old lady at 5 am honestly can't believe the loudness.
I wish I could record how loud it is laid in my bed!

She sat outside her room on the phone I could here the person she was speaking to.

Not happy!

BEST MOTEL ever! Honestly cannot fault anything. Always stay here when there’s vacancy. I’m very fussy about where we stay as we want comfort, clean and helpful staff. Spacious apt with hot tub. 5 stars from us.

Eddie is a great host.
Units are clean and fresh AND completely serviced everyday. Stayed 3 nights and really enjoyed it. Was completely full over long weekend, but quiet and plenty of parking. Will definitely return!
