Good location of motel. Nice comfortable bed and good to area outside to sit. Road noise can be heard as it’s a main road and squeaky floor boards can be heard from rooms next door. Nice pool and spa

I enjoyed my stay, location was good for my morning work appointment, staff were lovely on check in, clean and tidy room, reasonably quiet considering it was on a main road. The only thing I had issues with being in a studio was that the t.v. being mounted on a side wall and not at the foot of the bed.

Staff were all very friendly & helpful. Property has a great outlook on the Pandora Estuary, is close to the beach, & the hub of Ahuriri. Very easy to find & access, with a pretty good amount of parking. We will certainly being staying again. Hopefully the same fun other guests will be there too 😜😊

Pleasant outlook. A nice budget style motel room. On the upper level there is an extended seating area in front of room 30 for the use of guests.The housekeeping could do with a little more care. The fridge still had half used milk from the previous guest. The tissue dispenser in the bathroom was empty. The Guest Information guide was on the floor and behind a chair and was only found because check in had mentioned there was one.
