Very clean motel and well located to the main highway.

Exceptional 10.0
A great place to return to.
Welcome and checkin were great. Room immaculately clean with comfortable bed, fluffy new towels and a great shower. Also had a very efficient air conditioner which was a plus. Walking distance to some excellent restaurants and easy to find. Would have liked an extra light but that was a minor issue.

We will definitely be back!
Fantastic place to stay for a large family. Friendly service with a smile and they even had the heat pump on for us at arrival so it was toasty warm inside. Will definitely stay here again when we are back in Whangarei.

Clean and comfortable
Very accommodating people. Had trouble with my card (my problem) and it was no big deal for them. Room was freshly decorated and super clean. Great location for supermarkets and places to eat an easy walk. Only down for us was a soft bed - not use to it.
