We...

We went up over Easter for diving and stayed in Tutukaka Coast Motor Lodge, the location is just perfect..not too far away from Tutukaka dive shop and restaurant. The downstairs studio is spacious and clean and its reasonable priced. Would definitely come back and stay here for next diving trip.

This is a good basic kiwi motel that is very clean and is well sited directly over the road from the Nunguru estuary. The 2 brm unit was spacious and well equipped and we would certainly stay here again.

We stayed here one night to do our tour out to the Poor Knights and it was great, right across the road from the inlet, and a 5min drive to Tutukaka, fish and chips and a lil cafe 2mins down the rd and a little boat ramp across the rd! Such a great spot, would totally stay here again!

Older style motel but well appointed and very very clean. Room included kitchen with stove, fridge and microwave plus crockery and cutlery, washing up detergent, tea towels etc. Located opposite bay and boat ramp. Small supermarket, takeaway and sports club nearby. Free wifi was excellent with very efficient connection. No dropouts. Great base to view many natural attractions.
