Myself and 2 children ( 18&9) stayed here for a night . The man at reception was very friendly and helpful . We had a stand alone unit near the pool . Upon arrival they had out the heat pump on for us to take the chill off which was a lovely thought . It was extremely tidy and clean . The bed was amazing and we all had an sound sleep.
Close to everything with Countdown and New World a mere 500m away. Would definitely stay here again .

This is a great motel.
After Easter camping washed out this was my bolt hole. I needed dry and wifi for a couple of days of work.
The management are friendly, efficient and considerate.
The room was fab- fresh, clean and spacious. With big comfy bed, FULL and well equipped kitchen (speedy convection hob and oven), the bathroom is new with a powerful hot shower. The little detail of a provincial style table [rather than ugly built in desk unit] is cute.
Double extra points for clear signed in room recycling, no single use bathroom products and they don’t take the towels when you don’t need them too!
There’s a small pool, but it was seasonally closed in mid April :(
The negatives… there’s no cafetière and the shower door leaks!
Would recommend and would happily return.

We visit Whangarei about once or twice a year and we often found it hard to find somewhere nice. This motel was great. The room was a bit dated but very clean. We were in a 2 bedroom unit and it was very spacious. The kitchen was well stocked. No sky tv but the wifi was great so we managed to stream with it. The pool and spa was great too on a hot day. Overall a great place to stay and we will definitely return.

When we go to Whangarei for a getaway or business, we choose to stay at the Continental Motel as it is excellent value, super clean, modern and tidy, has a pool and a spa, super close to the main shopping area as well as restaurants, supermarkets, bars ... and the owners remember us and are very friendly and welcoming. All of these things make for a great place to return to after a long day and we appreciate having this motel as a consistently great place to stay.

Nice quite friendly motel. Probably not one you would look at if you were choosing from many, which only goes to show what you don't know.
Anton was exactly the person you wanted to meet at reception after a long day on the road. So after a swim in the pool, it was of the dine out. What a great location this is, near the famous 'Jimmy Jack's Rib & Craft Bar'
