Stayed here for two nights, primarily to visit the Hot Springs Beach. Room had all you would need to self cater although the town and restaurants were only a ten minute walk away. Owners provided us with spades and towels to use on the beach. Would highly recommend this to anyone thinking of visiting this area.

For some reason the Coromandel was almost full to capacity despite it being mid Feb, so we weren't having much luck finding somewhere to stay. When I phoned they were so polite and helpful, when we arrived nothing was too much trouble, and the units were beautiful. Modern, spotlessly clean and stylish without the usual "motel" feel. The private courtyard...

Couldn't give this place less than 5 stars even if I wanted to! Had the best stay here and would book again in a heartbeat. Great location to must do's, hot water beach and cathedral cove etc. The owners were so so nice and the room was just perfect. Breakfast was great and they have great wifi and a washing...

We srayed in Room 3 and it was a nice room, everything was clean and tidy, nice outdoor area, handy to shops/beach etc. Friendly staff, fold out sofa not fantastic but sleepable. Carpark right outside the room.

The room itself was great for me and my wife. We are from the US and it did not have an American motel feel. It was a great, small property in a small coastal town. The bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was nice and amenities were just fine. Everything worked and there wasn't anything else what we needed. The...

Stayed three nights at the Tairua Shores Motel in a family room which was spacious and clean, although a little dated. There was a small private outdoor area at the rear of the room with a BBQ which we used each evening. On one of the nights the motel was full yet the area and room was still very quiet....

Nice place, don't be put of by the proximity of the main road. Once inside it's all peace and quite. Big rooms (superior) very clean. Nice terrace comfy bed. Nice walk by the seaside to town ( 10min )

We visited Tairua as it is close to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach. The motel is absolutely gorgeous with lovely furnishings and the kitchen has everything you need. The private outdoor area with BBQ was a bonus. Shebeena helped us plan our visit to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach to make the most of tides and lent us...

Easy access and spacious well designed rooms. Fresh decor and friendly owners. Walking distance to the ferry. Good spot for Taurua beaches and easy drive to Hot water beach, Hahei & Cathedral Cove. Best suit a couple or family of three.

Spent one night here and we're very impressed so will definately return again. Lovely hosts made you feel welcomed and were very helpful. The room was way better than expected and had a lovely private out door setting Perfect location for taking a waterfront stroll to the township. Quiet and well setup so each room was offset to the other...
