We found the owner really friendly and welcoming and the room we had was perfect. It was clean and tidy and the linen towels etc were of a very good quality and the bed was comfortable.

Great views of the bay. A frame villa was well appointed and cosy with throw rugs etc. No AC but evening breeze through room was sufficient, no need to use the fan. Highly recommend.

Love it, we stopped at at the lodge after a 32 hour flight as an alternative to staying in Auckland and were rewarded with great accommodation, beautiful views, and a magnificent sunset. Our hosts were both friendly and helpful as we started our tour around the Coromandel.

I was really pleased with my choice of the Coastal Motor Lodge for a holiday. The two bedroom cottage was perfect for a couple and their children. The room was very clean and in very good condition. A lovely view out to sea. A short drive to the many restaurants and cafes on the main street. The cottage was quiet and has everything we needed and wanted.
