Lovely people, great pool, excellent wifi, big comfy bed, handy to everything in town. Supermarket only a couple of streets away. Happy to stay again and will do. Better value than going to the Gold Coast.

Don't ever book here : Breakers Motel, 318 Hetherington Road, 3620 Whangamata - they say 'fully refundable' deposit but even if you have genuine reasons for cancellation, they keep your full deposit and won't refund !

Hi 'Savvy Traveller'.... if you were to put a name to your review we could give you a response, however to make a remark such as you have and no name is a little cowardice.

Great location, walked around the marina and along the beach then back through town with a great coffee. Sat in the sun on the balcony and enjoyed the outlook. Beautifully clean rooms with comfy beds and friendly, helpful owners.

I stayed here for a night on a business trip. The proprietor was friendly and the bed was confortable but cleanliness seemed average (cupboard handles were sticky and the bathroom seemed to have only been superficially cleaned.

We received a helpful reception with the owner showing us the room before we decided to stay The self catering room had everything we needed with the bonus of a hot tub on the balcony. It was clean and well run The owner was happy to recommend places of interest for us to visit and loaned us a spade and beach towels to enable us to visit the hot sands. The motel is within an easy walk of shops, bars and restaurants and if you like walking, the beach. Would definitely stay again

This is a first-class motel. We received a very welcoming warm reception. The spacious room was very comfortable, well equipped with micro-wave, hob, fridge etc. and was spotlessly clean throughout. Our ground floor unit opened onto a relaxing patio area and a landscaped area with kidney-shaped swimming pool. And, after I accidentally left my cellphone behind, Ross was incredibly generous and considerate in posting it to me, despite having only 48 hours to the nationwide level 4 lockdown. I give this motel my highest recommendation and will return.
