This is by far the best place I have stayed in a long time. The staff are so helpful and they also have equiptment free to hire (fishing rod, mountain bikes, boogie boards, paddle boards, spade to dig at hot water beach, dvds and lots of others). The photos from other visitors or from the place don't do justice. The... More

The bedroom got a bit of noise from cars going through the motel carpark as we left the window open, but nothing major. The unit has a bedroom with... More

An excellently equipped room with spa and great view over Mercury Bay. Rooms have all facilities and are very spacious. A closed in Balcony provides a similar effect to double glazing and was great for a couple of cold days while we were there. Cooking facilities are provided but cooking which would leave room odours is strongly discouraged. Breakfast is... More

We had 2 nights here in August in an upstairs unit. Lots of space and great to have double glazing as the main road could be noisy in summer. Very quiet and comfortable although we were short of blankets the first night and the heat pump was too noisy to leave on. This was rectified on night 2 after we... More
