    Stayed 1 night in December 2019

    Enjoyed our 1-night stay very much”

    It is a motel with single-storey chalet-syle accommodation. Our stay was very relaxing and comfortable. We had a 3-bedder with a queen bed in a separate bedroom and a single bed in the living room. The chalet came with a spacious bathroom and a well-equipped kitchen. There is even a small backyard with BBQ equipment. Check-in and check-out were quick and fuss-free and the proprietor was most friendly. Location-wise, it is a few minutes' walk to the Tairua Wharf with a good view of Mt Paku. Shops and eateries were only a few minutes' drive away.

    Beautiful area, good motel.”

    Nice location, spacious modern motel, beautiful area.

    Tairua is one of our favourites and Glen and Alison run a modern motel with all the creature comforts. We were given a free upgrade and had a sea view. We had wi-fi problems on two computers and were glad we took Vodaphone sticks on our five week holiday. We had problems in New Zealand with all our free wi-fi services bar one and NZ has to address this problem, especially if you have to work on internet during the day.

    Free fast wifi, clean and beautiful, right next to Mary reserve a perfect place for fishing

    So good I was relaxed and happy. We booked it because we wanted to do epic adventure fishing for kingfish. Then the fishing trip was canceled due to bad weather. But we then found this perfect dock right next to it. There are tons of yellow tail, cowwhite, kingfish, we saw shark! The location of the motel was convenient, close to everything. Glen was helpful. Love your motel and recommend to everyone. The price is so good. During my entire New Zealand trip, I'm the happiest with the value of this motel.

    I feel it is little difficult to writing this. The location is good. From back site of the motel, just few steps, it is harbour. Walking along the harbour, it is a town centre. Motel itself is new, but I don't feel very comfortable. Water pressure for the shower is very good.

    Fantastic place to stay”

    We had a really great stay here. The room was modern and comfortable and we loved the private courtyard. The host Sabeena was lovely and accomodating. Some building works were going on at the property at the front but it didn't bother us at all. My only negative was the shower being too low on pressure. Other than that our stay was fantastic and we will definitely stay again. Thank you!

    Spacious Apartment, friendly hosts, quiet location.

    The hosts were very helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable and had everything needed for self accommodating. It has a nice sitting area outside the room which is a private space. The only thing is the bathroom does not have an enclosed shower so water goes all over the floor.

    First impressions were a worry as front reception and house being renovated so rubbish and mess in driveway and front of property. Temporary but could deter passing traffic needing accom. Front garden plants looked a bit like weeds - replant with nice plants and will help street appeal. The apartments inside were lovely.
