Beautifully presented motel at a very reasonable price. Little touches such as red roses finished the almost Grecian furnishings of the rooms. Very comfortable beds with air con and ceiling fans over the beds. Fully functioning kitchen with all you need. A heated pool and warm friendly welcome topped off an excellent venue. Price far less than expected for such...

Unexpectanly had to stay in Whangeri due to family falling and needing a place to stay. Choose here because it was close to hospitial and had vacancy. Stayed in a 1 bedroom studio but they happily added in an extra bed. The room was spacious and very nice and modern. The place had free WiFi and a smart tv with...

Our room was wonderful and felt really upscale compared to the lodges we had previously stayed in. The kitchenette was very well-stocked. The bathroom was perfectly clean. There's reliable wifi, a pool and a selection of DVDs to choose from (great for just taking it easy after our long day of hiking). Most importantly, the service was warm and friendly....

This is like a super fancy motel, about a 20 minute walk to the main basin area. We had room 6 - nice and roomy since we had a lot of luggage. It happened to also be handicap accessible. The kitchen, minibar and bath were like brand new and had everything one might need. Not sure I have stayed in...

Booked in for a weekend stay. Very impressed. Beautiful 1 bedroom suite. Friendly and informative personal service. Didn't just hand over the key but walked us to our room and pointed out relevant information. Will book again next time in Whangarei.

A good place to stay: has all the amenities the business traveler needs (incl A/C, WiFi, desk/table)), and comes with a well-equipped kitchenette. Perhaps an oven (or a space-saving convection micro-wave) would be a nice complement.

We had a studio room, but benefitted from great amenities. Quality toiletries and a well-appointed wet-room which was disabled-friendly. Good kitchenette facilities. Bedroom was comfortable. All spotlessly clean. The staff were knowledgeable about the general area, and made great recommendations for places to visit in the Bay of Islands region. Whangarei is a really pleasant town and worth a visit...

Very nice place to stay. I enjoyed the comfortable bed, friendly greeting and the little extras that made it a very pleasurable stay. Spotlessly clean and attention to details made it enjoyable. I am a rep on the road and will definitely stay here on my next trip.
