It is set in the countryside on the edge of town so is very quiet. The owner was very helpful. We would stay there again when in Whitianga.

Nice motel with friendly staff, they have a common lounge area for cooking. The motel is a 5 minute drive from the township. Nice room, but the bathrooms need updating.

Located outside town by about one and a half km, advantage there being secluded and quiet. Room very clean and tidy looking out onto well looked after lawn/garden, all usual facilities with a continental breakfast included , staff very welcoming and friendly, only addition could be Sky tv channels.

Ok for 1 night”

Very small room, but did look onto garden. General kitchen area is pretty grotty and hall to eat it in as bad. Rather like Butlins in the 60's.

Comfortable and cozy but somewhat small”

Unit was clean and cozy but compact. This place is in the middle of nowhere although it is within 5 mins driving distance to the town center. Closet and tea making facilities were cramped into one space. Overall, a good stay if you're just passing through and need a place for the night.
