We stayed two nights here and loved it. If you like older style NZ motels then this is the place for you. Spacious unit with a big fridge and a full stove, sunny, airy and perfectly located for walks and the Mount.

Room tip: Our room at the rear was quiet on Friday and saturday night

Carnt say enough about this beautiful homely motel. Set in the most beautiful spot. Lots to watch and enjoy with it being centred at the mount. The hosts are warm and very helpful, treat you like one of the family. The rooms are like flats with everything there that you need . The cleanliness is second to none, you could almost eat your meal of the floor, spotless. Very sad to leave. But we will be back. What a place, heaven. The hotel rating part at the bottom of this page doesn’t seem to want to work so I’ll say it here , 100% in everything.

Room tip: All rooms are good. We stayed in the front unit and it was great.

We were not sure if we were going to like the location after seeing cruise ships and freighters. Once we drove into the parking lot and were warmly greeted, we breathed a sigh of relief. This motel is across the street from the bay. Just a 10-15 minute walk takes you to the open water. Plenty of restaurants and shops within an easy walk as well. The unit itself is clean and well stocked. I think it is time to toss the worn and torn bedspreads and kitchen towels. The window coverings with holes should also be replaced. Even with that said, we would return in a nano second.

Have stayed here twice now in the last month. Such a great place to stay as it has everything you need. Great swimming straight across the road. Also really neat to watch cruise ships come in and out, quite a lot of people come down to watch and eat there dinner.
Hosts are very lovely, we have booked to go back in March.

I don’t really want to write this review because I would like to keep this place to ourselves! This is a wonderful little gem in the heart of the Mount. Across the road from Pilot bay (which is prefect for little ones to swim in) and walking distance to the shops and restaurants it’s a prefect spot for families. The fact that we can take our dog is a big plus and all the staff are very friendly. The motel itself is a bit older but it has everything you need and it was lovely and clean. We loved our stay so much that we booked again for the end of the year. You won’t be disappointed.
