This was a few days break from touring both islands in New Zealand. The motel was clean and well keep. Our room had a jacuzzi on our patio and the bathroom also had a jacuzzi bath. Good location as it is on the marina, shops and beach.

Stayed two nights in this spacious well equipped motel. Very clean and tidy bedroom, bathroom and well equipped kitchen facilities. Wife didn't like the wet-room type bathroom but that's just a preference, I found it fine for me. Nice patio area, if on ground floor, right next to the loverly pool. Plenty of sun loungers and seating around the pool....

Michael we thank you and Gillian for taking the time to review your stay at Breakers Motel in Whangamata.

Thanks for your kind words. We are thrilled that you enjoyed you stay at Breakers. The swimming pool is certainly an enticing feature in this beautiful weather; as is Whangamata; a little piece of paradise. It was a pleasure to host you; safe travels.

Really enjoyed our brief stay here, arrived to a very friendly and warming welcome by the lady on reception. I think we ended up with a bigger room than we had booked, a large ground floor apartment (no.14) that was clean, well equipped and had large patio doors that opened out onto a small personal deck space and the swimming...
