Booked to stay one night on our trip from Wellington to Coromandel. Thoroughly recommend this motel!! Beautiful spacious and clean room. Wonderfully comfortable large bed. Friendly welcome. Close to shopping area and waterfront.

My husband and I were thoroughly surprised by how comfortable, clean, accommodating, and well-equipped this place was. The bed was excellent, and so was the bathroom and kitchen area. The kitchen is amazingly stocked with whatever supplies you'd need/want to make meals whilst traveling - my husband and I made steaks multiple nights in a row! The staff is also...

新的装修 大按摩浴缸 全家四口都可以一起享用 很舒服 年费的小件都很好质量 出门就是餐馆和美丽的湖 真的很不错 一家人来比较好! This is really good choice for family stay newly renovated with good spa facility! Easy excess to all facility we love it! Only suggestion would be to upgrade the kitchen to be the same high level of the rest of the room! Very good stay will use it next time!

We were greeted with a very friendly and welcoming staff member who had already turned out heater on which was exactly what we needed after a cold wet day on the water. The shower was also superb, with the location being close to restaurants and the beautiful waterfront. Highly reccomended

This hotel is exactly what it says it is - comfortable, homely, and relaxing. The spa unit was fantastic, however hot water did eventually run out. The bed was large and very comfortable. The wifi is free, unlimited and fast. The aircon unit worked well and was quiet. Everything was superb!

Great big rooms and bathrooms . Bathrooms offered a spa bath . Great size bathrooms and bedroom space . The kitchen has a microwave , fridge , kettle and other appliances . Would stay again . The beds could have used more pillows and a mattress upgrade - the bed was a little too soft and squishy for our liking...

Mouldy damp smelling apartment with very obvious mould in bathroom around spa bath windows, and shower. Cat urine spray was very easily detectable above the vanity and a big hole in the tile in bathroom were mice would easily get in. I would not recommend to anyone

Check-in and check-out was a breeze. Owners were friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the large rooms, and we appreciated the cleanliness of the place. It was so comfortable to sleep there as well! Usually my wife and I struggle a bit when travelling, because we're particular about mattresses and so forth, but we loved our night at this inn.

Four guys on a trip to Taupo for the weekend. 2 bedrooms and a pull out sofa bed. Ideal place for us and we were very surprised how clean and tidy this place was for the great price we booked it for. Very friendly place with a warm welcome and helpful throughout our two night stay. Not far to the...

Booked two twin studios and were placed in the building next door to the main motel. Not sure if all the rooms are of a similar standard but these were very dated. No bath just showers one of which was accessible ( not requested ) both of which could do with a serious update, the shower itself was the worst...
