      Everything was a pleasure, from the booking to the departure (and beyond, it turned out!). We left an item of clothing in our room and reception phoned us asap, meaning we hadn't left Whakatane yet and could go back. We loved that we could park our car and trailer in the next door lot which was locked overnight. The staff were so very friendly and the breakfast was top notch. My husband loved that the cafe served protein drinks for breakfast! We had dinner across the road and watch rugby not far from the hotel which meant we could walk back after having a few drinks. Loved the option of b/fast in our room or in the cafe and also the outdoor tables & chairs upstairs on the patio. Overall, just an absolute pleasure. We'll definitely be back.

      If there were just one thing I would do to add a touch more class to the rooms, it would be to replace the dining suites with something more contemporary. It would change the whole feel of the room and lift it out of the "beach" theme into more of a "luxury" theme.

      we stayed in a standard room and it was just perfect for the time we spent. our room was clean and tidy and we particularly like the eco friendly tips and actions we could do during our stay. this is a beautifully presented motel and staff were friendly.

    • Single

      It was handy to the centre of town, clean and modern

      The bed was not that comfortable. A mattress topper pad and flannelette sheets would have made it more cosier and comfy as it was mid winter and freezing temperatures.

      Location - proximity to harbour and Ohope beach. My husband wanted to fish but in the end the weather was against us. The room was huge with enough space to sit and a table to eat at. It was the only hotel on our trip which provided a unit large enough to take both our suitcases so we could unpack comfortably.

      It had a bit of a back packer feel about it and not a lot of character.

      It's easy to find,beside the main road.and the parking is free,wifi is free for four hours.

      It 's nosiy,very easy to listening the other room's sound, so if you intend to wake lately, it didn't comfort you.

    • Older travelers
      6.2

      The room was large and clean.

      I hated the bathroom. It had one of those showers with a drain in the floor but no enclosure except a curtain. No matter what one does, the entire bathroom floor gets wet. Also, the bathroom had no fan. This was not a budget room and for the price I paid I expected a modern bathroom.

    • Older travelers
      6.6

      friendly staff, proximaty to main shopping area and a nice area of town . kitchen and bathroom very clean .

      the unit was noisy from the upstairs . the top blue bed cover had a stain on it and the spare pillows looked dirty.

    • Couple
      10.0

      I thought the staff were very helpful and friendly, the breakfast at the cafe onsite was lovely and the site was close enough to town for a lovely evening stroll and dinner at one of the local pubs, then a stroll back to relax.

      Terrific base for visiting White Island.

      Room was rather bleak & cold. WiFi hopeless once away from the reception area.

    • Couple
      10.0

      The room was spacious. The wifi was free! The location was really peaceful. It took only a minute to walk to the sea shore.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      Friendly. Clean. Excellent coffee. Right on the front of the river and sea. We left some luggage and this was promptly couriered to us. Would we go again. YES.

      $50 charge for a broken lamp shade. Yes it was my fault, and the staff waived this on our assertion that the charge was high.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      Clean, comfortable well designed room. Great cafe at the motel. We went to White Island which was an amazing experience.
