This is a great location, beautiful views over the bay. Very comfortable accommodation. Lovely operators that service the motel complex. It was a great place to meet up with family and share a lovely 70th birthday for Judy.

This motel suites us fine. It's nothing fancy, basic little suite. But the location was excellent. Could take the ferry right into downtown Auckland! And also the ferry to Waihiki Island, well worth some visits with beaches and wineries and shopping. The motel could use some updating but it was a nice, quiet and handy spot to live for a...

There was a full size fridge, small cooking facilities, microwave and sink etc. Bathroom was small but more than adequate. I only had a glimpse of the water, but each morning went on a...

Had a great stay, exremly helpful & freindly host partnership go out of their way to ensure your comfort. Recent aircon fitment makes rooms extra cosy, which given the recent cold-snap was a real bonus. Looking forward to returning to enjoy all the further site developments. Thanks again to hosts for being so friendly and professional. Cheers

Lovely location, we enjoyed how close we were to the beach. Nice resturants were close by. But on the Friday night the owner started yelling and swearing at kids walking by and cars pulling up. Threatening to assult them. Ruined our stay. Would not return.
