Fabulous start to the holiday season at a great location. Checked in to my room and loved my view of the bay, instantly pleased. All restaurants within walking distance and other nightlife. In all the fun that was being had, taking of photos was far from my mind. Thank you to the staff at Breakwater for a wonderful stay.

Such a gorgeous place to stay! Really nice rooms very tidy and a good use of space. Great location - the motel was an easy walk to everything we needed. The staff were smiley and friendly, and the view was incredible - loved waking up with the ocean right there. Would happily go back & recommend

Right from arrival we were greeted with warm smilies...

Loved waking up and looking out to the ocean. The gardens were beautiful and in full bloom.

Rooms were well appointed and immaculately clean. And just a quick walk to the restaurants and bars

Would absolutely stay again.

Located at the edge of the town center. Eateries are nearby and a supermarket is just 5 minutes walk. Comfortable bed, fully equipped and functioning kitchenette. Clean room and spotless bathroom. Strong water pressure for a relaxing shower. Excellent sea view once stepping out of the room. Signal from the free wifi was working very well. RECOMMENDED

Room Tip: Options for different views from different rooms.

We had a lovely 2 night stay in a room at the front of the hotel with a view of the water. Great location, close to everything. Staff were very friendly and helpful dduring our stay. Unbeknown to me when we booked out I had lost a very special gold & diamond earring while there. Thank you to Lyn for contacting me and arranging to have it sent to me by courier before we left the country. Will definitely stay with Breakwater again when in NZ.
