Stopped here for 3 nights - everything was great starting with our welcome from Aisne who couldn't have been more helpful. Lovely suite on the upper floor, everything you could need including a balcony with views across the river and the marina. All topped off by the pool and sun deck - a great place to relax after a long...

Really enjoyed our brief stay here, arrived to a very friendly and warming welcome by the lady on reception. I think we ended up with a bigger room than we had booked, a large ground floor apartment (no.14) that was clean, well equipped and had large patio doors that opened out onto a small personal deck space and the swimming...

You both were a joy to host. So pleased you enjoyed our complimentary upgrade and that you enjoyed the scenic walk around our beautiful marina down to the beach. Safe travels to you both and we look forward to seeing you in the future. Ross and Megan Levy

On arrival at the motel we received a warm welcome from the proprietor, who showed us to a bright and spacious unit on the ground floor that proved to be very comfortable, functional and quiet during our stay. Not only did the unit have all of the features and facilities that help make one's holiday an enjoyable one, but also...

We booked this motel to be near our family who were holidaying in Whangamata. It was great for them to visit us and share pool time. The rooms were clean with fresh smelling towels changed daily if required. Easy straight walk to shops and cafes. Very easy walk to New World supermarket for supplies. You can stroll round to town...

Stayed here for 3 nights in December as part of a group of 6. We had a two bedroom unit with a sofa bed. The motel is comfortable and my kids liked having amenities like the trampoline, hot tub and playground. It's next to the marina, the boardwalk and the grocery store but a bit further from the main town...

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that your four children 5-12 years old enjoyed our child friendly facilities. Though we were disappointed to see they didn't use our amazing pool a definite favourite with most families. We seem very puzzled by your comments particularly about decor as this has all been professionally updated within 12 months obviously it...

Plenty of room. Good kitchen. Nice pool but the hot tub was a winner! Short walk to the main restaurant street. Thoroughly recommended. Ross is an excellent host. Could have stayed a week and would have if our schedule permitted.

Our private hot tubs are definitely a winner with all our guests though we think our fabulous swimming pool is perhaps an equal winner. Next visit we hope you can arrange your schedule to fit in a week long stay as Whangamata and the Coromandel certainly deserve it, so much to do, not forgetting lazing around the pool building your...

Stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon. We were given an upgrade to the honeymoon suite (room 22) which was fantastic!

We stayed here for 4 nights. The room was spacious, very clean and serviced every day. The location is good for exploring the Coromandel Peninsula. Ross is a great and friendly host. The pool looks terrific but it was a bit early to be warm.

Stayed here earlier in the week. Very comfortable, staff helpful and friendly. Convenient location, close to supermarket and pathway around Marina. There is no free wifi that we were offered which makes it difficult when on business. Don't expect to pay for wifi these days.
