On arrival we received a very warm welcome. The manager showed us to our apartment and gave us details of the local area. Everything was spotlessly clean, comfortable and very well equipped. On departure for Rotorua we were given a list of suggested activities which we very much appreciated. It proved very useful.

I am traveling around the North Island of New Zealand with 3 mates. We stumbled across the Blue Water Motel after a day of driving and sight seeing.

The owners are super friendly and very hospitable. The location is perfect being walking distance from the high street. There are a number of walks and beaches in close proximity also.

The rooms are modern, clean and very well appointed. There is a proper shower for those of you like me who don’t like bath showers. Good selection of channels on TV so you can unwind before going to bed.

Thanks for a great stay.

We are in Auckland with 1 day to go after 3 weeks self driving around NZ and I can let all readers know that Blue Water motel in Tairua was our favourite place we stayed in. Terrific hosts and just such a nice atmosphere. Stop there and you won’t be disappointed and try Flock restaurant for a good meal.

Easy access to all the local sites.
Clean well equipped room with comfortable bed.
Very friendly owner with lots of good local advice. Including for hot water beach.
Good value, would be perfect with a/c. Room fan was noisy.
The town is quite low key but has all you need, including fuel, a small supermarket and restaraunts.
A great base from which to explore.

This is our second stay here and we weren’t disappointed. Owners Sue and Barry are so friendly and helpful and are doing a great job making sure everything is just right.

Our detached King Chalet was very spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped.

The bed was very comfortable; wonderful shower with frequent change of big fluffy towels; gorgeous hot tub with more fresh towels; plenty of windows and a room fan to keep you cool.

Separate towels and a spade are even provided for a visit to Hot Water Beach which is a must.

The motel is very well placed for all the restaurants and other amenities in Tairua. There’s a lovely beach just across the footbridge and it’s a very pleasant walk to the main Ocean Beach and marina.

It’s next to the main road so expect some road noise during the day but it all quietens down at night so it’s not a problem.

We had a great stay here and would love to return.
