Stayed 2 nights while visiting for a wedding. 4 min walk to the town centre. Lots of space, clean and a friendly host. The restaurant food is wicked. Try the snapper! Divine. Hubby had the angus beef and loved it. Totally recommend this motel. Less than 15 min drive to the beach.

Although nice people to deal with, the room was a sorry disappointment. The smell of mold struck us as soon as we walked in, despite the open windows. The room wasn't particularly clean, with dust in the corners and a (fortunately) dead cockroach on the bedside table. The website advertised that breakfast was included, but we were told, sorry that...

We stayed at the Waipu Clansman Motel for five nights and loved it! Maria who runs the place made us feel very welcome and nothing was to much trouble for her. If you need anything you just let her know. My partner and I sat on our patio having coffee or cold drinks looking at the stars. Wonderful peace and...
