Spent 2 nights here with the family. It was a nice peaceful place to be. Well equiped kitchen, comfortable beds, generous Wi-Fi and sky TV.
The staff were really polite and helpful even going so far as to bring in and fold a load of our washing and hang a fresh load out for us! This was such a treat.

Stayed: January 2017, travelled with family

Driftwood was a fantastic location for a team to stay at. The hosts were sensational with their helpfulness (thanks, Lucy) & the courtyard was a perfect place to relax in the sun with a beer or two in hand. Our apologies to other residents. Thank you Driftwood - I would recommend you in a heartbeat!

Very welcoming and accommodating hosts, nothing was too much trouble, even delivering our laundry to our door and an extra treat of fresh lemons! The units were very clean and well serviced. The motel is within walking distance to the beach and a number or restaurants, we look forward to staying again!

Location was great. 5mins walk from Tahunanui beach, restaurants within 5mins (Smugglers, Thai Tahuna, Mc Dees etc), bottle store and pub across the road. Hosts were very friendly, very accommodating, lollies, chocolates yum :). Rooms clean and tidy. Simple, not flash, but had everything. Will definitely come back again. Had a BBQ (not that we used it but saw other families using it).

Room Tip: All rooms are away from the road so little noise. We had 1 bdrom and it was spacious.

We received top class service from the owners with a genuine and welcoming smile. In fact, nothing was too much of a problem. We woke Maida up at 6.45am to drop off our bags before heading off to the Heaphy and she happily sorted our bags with no problems at all. When we returned from our tramp, Maida had our bags ready in our room. We stayed in unit 2, it was well appointed, clean and very comfortable. The motel is well located within Tahunanui, close to a safe swimming beach, good restaurants, liquor stores. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks Maida.
