Perfect location opposite the beach. Walking distance to the wharf, restaurants and shops. Friendly owner, spacious room, clean room, free wifi. Serviced daily.
Fleur, nz3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Our choice of sea view unit (# 7) provided us with a great view to the esplanade and we lacked nothing else. We would do the same again.
Peter, au3 night trip
Very good 8.0
Great location
Booked this motel because of location. Direct sea views over well maintained gardens, own parking space. 200 yards from town centre & ferry. Room was spacious (not overly modern hence 4 not 5 stars), small kitchen area, great outdoor seating (room 7 & 8 especially). John and good lady great hosts. Will book again.

Just an over night stay but enjoyed it very close to everything
Sue, us1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Comfortable stay.
Motel was a it tricky to find and could do with more signage from the town centre and main road. Not everyone uses SatNav. Room was very comfortable and of good size. Well equiped kitchenette. Bathroom was adequate and a little dated. Room overall was clean. Plenty of parking. Hosts were welcoming. Bar and restaurant were well stocked, very comfortable and with good views over the beach. Restaurant food was very good.

Loved the room, loved the location. If I’d had more time I would have liked to stay longer. Will definitely be back
Debra, au1 night romance trip
Exceptional 10.0
Nice motel
The motel is well located and the managers are helpful. The bed was a little soft for us and we missed having airconditioning. We had to leave sliding door open , and felt a little vulnerable.

Great location
We had a great stay at Ala Moana. The location is sensational, really close to town. The sea view units are worth the extra charge. The rooms are clean and well laid out. The free wifi is a nice bonus. We are happy to recommend this motel.
