Very good 8.0
weekend away
Great place to stay, lovely view from room and short walk to shops. Very quiet.

Great views
My husband and I stayed two nights on our way home from the far north. Our one bedroom Waterfront suite ocean view was very well appointed and we had great views. The location was great for walking into the shops or to Waitangi but our unit was right on the road so there was a lot of noise from the traffic. We would return but maybe look at a unit away from the road.

Great view from our ground floor unit. Comfortable and warm. Hosts were great when we broke a wine glass on the tiles in the kitchen. Wifi dropped off in the bedroom but good in lounge area and free. ample parking and a close walk to town

Very pleased to have chosen to stay at Breakwater
Very easy review to do - could not fault any aspect of Breakwater Motel. Very happy to recommend highly. Great position, great views, right next to a prime beach, walking distance to shops, ferry service, restaurants etc, immaculately clean, very helpful and accommodating staff.

We will be back.
Perfectly placed Motel for shops, bars and beaches. The view from the room was amazing (room 12), living room and bedroom, from the beach below and over to Russell with the comings and goings of the various ferries. Cannot fault the room and facilities (though there was no complimentary shampoo or shower gel so make sure to bring your own). Small kitchen with everything you need for stay long or short. Fresh milk on checking in (always a bonus) and plenty of allocated parking. No need to use the car, can stroll in to town or walk to the Treaty Grounds.

In spite of rainy weather an excellent and relaxing stay. Only issue was that the WiFi was a bit clunky at times.
