Nice tidy, clean and private room. Unfortunate that the staff weren't about most of the time, the toilet leaks a little which is bit annoying in the middle of the night and the fridge is more like a freezer.

Friendly staff who accommodated all our extras

The units were basic but really suitable for a family stay. The back yard with BBQ and view of the sea was a real bonus. The motelier was lovely and accommodated a string of extra requests from us, and especially we appreciated the early check in we were allowed. We had to ring back 3 times but eventually he was able to make it happen in a full motel when someone checked out early in the morning. The pull out sofa was very uncomfortable but otherwise we loved this place and would be keen to come back many times over.

Hi there, thank you for your review and we are glad that you have enjoyed staying with us. Guest experience is our first priority and we are constantly striving to be the best quality motel in Tairua. Water pressure can sometimes be low due to the connection to the council's mains pressure, which we hope to upgrade this winter. Thank you and we hope to see you again!
