Lovely Harbour Views - As Promised

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Oct 2022
We only stayed one night on our way further north. It is an older style motel, with quite a steep driveway leading up to it, and limited parking and turning. But the views are great, and our unit was spacious, with a separate bedroom with 2 single beds and a queen bed in the lounge overlooking the view. There's a deck off each unit, all with great views. There is a lovely walk starting from right outside the motel, and leading up and over the hill to the township. We walked over it and had dinner in town, then walked back along the (quiet) main road. While the bed seemed very firm (not my preference), I had a good night's sleep. Overall, a pleasant stay.

We stayed 3 nights at The Harbour View Motel and enjoyed the peace and quiet away from busy Coromandel Town. Ross and Jocelyn were very informative and we especially enjoyed the tip about Thursday night Roast Night at the Coromandel Hotel as is was great to get vegetables. The motel is older but very clean and it was convenient to be able to do a load of washing and borrow a drying rack. The walking trail up the hill to town was lovely.

What a fantastic place to stay. Very friendly owners. The ideal retreat to unwind and relax. The outside deck views were spectacular and rooms very clean and comfortable with a very obliging owner. Wish could have stayed longer but will definitely be back in future

The property is older, but clean and spacious. The best part is the amazing view. One wall of our room was windows, which looked out on the bay. We really enjoyed sitting out on the lanai and soaking it in.

Unfortunately, it was rainy the one night we stayed there. I'd like to go back in good weather and stay longer as they have bikes and kayaks for the guests to use, plus there is a walking trail through the forest right near the motel. It is located away from the main town, so was wonderfully quiet. It was wonderful to hear the rain on the roof and the sound of birds.

Our room had twin beds in the bedroom, a queen and single in the very large main room, with table, chairs and kitchen with stovetop. Beds were slightly on the firm side but comfortable and we had a perfect night's sleep.

There's also a self-serve laundry, plus games in the office to take back to your room.

Room tip: I think all the rooms have a view. Best to ask.

Lovely, quiet and peaceful motel with stunning views over the harbour. A little dated but spotless and had everything we needed. Friendly management. Highly recommend taking a walk up the hill behind the motel for more stunning views and get the heart rate up!!!

Each unit has a large deck which is conducive to enjoying a cold wine while watching the sun set. Looking across the harbour and the mussel beds is always enjoyable.
Totally recommend this as a place to stay.
Perhaps a little to far from the shops to walk to, but the situation makes up for this.
