Positive Reviews

Great location near the beach

The location of this motel earns a great deal of praise from reviewers. Although some distance from the town centre, the proximity of the beach is what guests really like. They note that Tahunanui Beach is within easy walking distance, and enjoy strolling on its unspoiled shores.

Fantastic owners and staff

Guests are clearly impressed with the owners of this motel. The couple, who also manage the property, are praised for their welcoming nature and willingness to go the extra mile to make each stay a memorable one. Guests feel well taken care of, and note that the owners offer a wealth of local knowledge and freely provides tips and recommendations to those in need.

Very clean accommodation

Reviewers are in agreement that the rooms and apartments here are all kept very neat and clean. As a result, they feel comfortable relaxing and find they don't need to worry about room hygiene issues.

Negative Reviews

Some issues due to the road

Those allocated rooms closest to the road remark that it is possible to hear the sound of cars passing by while in the rooms. In addition, the curtains are said to be on the thin side, so the light from car headlights are sometimes an added disturbance to those trying to sleep.

Bathrooms need an update

The bathrooms come in for a bit of criticism, with guests saying they are looking tired and out of date. Together with the odd fixture that is loose or otherwise problematic, guests conclude the bathrooms are ripe for a refresh.
