We stayed here for a week with our small dog. The motel is clean and comfortable and very close to some good restaurants. You can walk anywhere from here. John and Maureen were excellent and such lovely people. They upgraded us to a bigger room which we really appreciated. They were also very helpful re local knowledge of the best places to go for food etc. Being able to take our dog made the holiday so much more fun and she had a ball exploring the Bay of Islands with us. We are already thinking of our next holiday - and will be staying at Marlin Court Motel again!

This is a really fine establishment, and we are glad we stumbled across it. We have visited twice in down season, and found it to be perfect. The owners are really nice.... they always welcome you with a smile, have the milk for your coffee in the fridge already, and go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. One stay they mentioned they could keep an eye on our dog; the next time John had come out and washed my husband's car (which was admittedly filthy!). The rooms are clean, spacious and well-kept. We like the fact that we can stay on the ground floor and have a small semi-private patio and yard to ourselves - perfect for morning coffee or afternoon wine. Parking is easy and plentiful, and in front of the hotel. Lastly, the best thing is the location - walkable to everything, but on a quieter section of the beach.
