We stayed at the Motel for 3 nights and were very satisfied. Except for the weather. The room is actually a very spacious cabin with a kitchen and desk, plus a private deck in the backyard. Laundry facility is super. perfect place to enjoy the Coromandel area. Good Restaurant in nearby town. Great beaches.

We went down and stayed for a friends wedding, it was a busy time as all the rooms were booked on the night we stayed. Still we found friendly staff, a gorgeous, very clean and relaxing room and quiet spot in a beautiful town.

Arrived in Tairua late in the afternoon and used the services of the town visitor I-Site to find our 1 night stay. Hosts made us most welcome and very knowledgeable on local attractions. Excellent choice where we could relax after a full days driving. Loved the private terrace area to unwind before walking the short distance into town along the...

We stayed 5 nights in a Superior Chalet. We found it very clean, fully furnished with a good bathroom, kitchenette, beds and private deck. Towels & linen all fairly new, freshly washed and in sufficient quantity. Location is excellent. It lies out of town for peace & quiet, but only by a few minutes gentle stroll. Very helpful proprietor &...

Very friendly staff who were most helpful when we arrived. The room was very clean and well appointed with everything we needed. We loved the outside courtyard with palms, ferns and furniture. Great location with a pleasant 10 minute walk along the waters edge to the town centre with a range of excellent restaurants and cafes. Good value.

This motel has very comfortable, well appointed and good sized rooms. They are arranged so everyone has some private deck space too. It is an easy walk to a number of different places to eat, including a fish restaurant and a pizzeria. We received a warm welcome on arrival and consider that Tairua Shores is justifiably up there with the...

We stayed here after visiting the hot water beach. It is in a lovely small town with supermarket in. The walk along the sea to supermarket was lovely and pleased the owners showed us this instead of walking the main road. It was quiet even though it is on the main road. Room was lovely with a secluded sitting area....

Tairua Shores is well located just a 5 minute walk from the Tairua central shops. Only 1 minute to the estuary beach and a really short drive to the main Tairua beaches. Very spacious, clean, and well-appointed units. We had 8 people in 4 units and all were in excellent condition. We called ahead and they allowed us to check...
