Friendly relaxed hosts. Rooms clean and tidy, with a fantastic morning view. Bedroom is to the rear away from any road noise - not that there was much. Shower pressure was a bit lacking but I would stay again - the position and hosts well...More

Thanks for your great review. We'll certainly get that shower looked at and hope to see you here again. Cheers, Steve.

Old school small complex in a top spot immediately adjacent to the harbour. Also just a gentle stroll to the local shops, restaurants etc. Roomy and well maintained, very relaxing vibe due to the close proximity of the water. Steve is a great host and...More

Right on the waterfront to observe all the action. Very well presented older style motel unit with everything provided - even ice in the deep freeze. This seems to be a failing with most New Zealand accomodation units that ice is not available on hand...More

Thanks Mervyn, just glad to be of service. We aim to be comfortable, not corporate. Cheers, Steve.

Under new management since mid-2016, this motel is now firmly classified as being in the Four Star Plus market. Come and enjoy your stay with us at the Esquire Motel. Situated the heart of the Mangonui More waterfront and village, we offer two spacious, comfortable, clean and self-contained suites sitting just above the sparkling waters of the Mangonui Harbour. Enjoy a quiet evening viewing the delights of this historic town or popping into one of the various eateries or bars. Or just relax and take in the exquisite views from your unit. Wake up to a glorious sunrise and enjoy a short stroll to have breakfast in one of the local cafes. Walk the Heritage Trails, go for a swim or take advantage of the many activities our area has to offer. Cape Reinga is within easy reach, as is a fishing trip. We can arrange the Tours and have the contacts. Come and experience the fish splashing, the sting-rays hunting, the dolphins cruising, just metres away from your front window. Absolute magic. Less
