We chose this motel as it was close to the markets and a short drive to Ascension. Excellent choice. Lovely owners. Rooms are new and immaculately presented. We arrived at 7.30pm and it was cold and wet and the room had been heated ready for us. Will definately be back. Thank you.

The location is superb - a stones throw from the impressive Matakana Gastropub and markets etc. The motel is newly renovated to a high standard and the manager is lovely. We booked a double room unit which was very comfortable for 4 adults sharing.

A gorgeous motel, modern, sparkling clean, spacious and really comfortable. It is incredibly handy to all the amenities being right in town but still very quiet. The hosts are just lovely and very helpful. Recommend this to anyone!

Great for Matakana Country farm, Brick Bay winery & hour walk sculpture trail. Lots of beaches not to mention the Sunday market & great restaurants in Matakana itself. The staff were very friendly. We had a great stay, thank you!

Quiet, nice pub nearby. Good shower, bed, kitchen (not used see first sentence) I'm sure there were probably things to see there but we were there for work. Dark when you leave and dark when one gets back.

We were hit by cyclonic rain on our way south & had been told of this gorgeous little town ... we arrived exhausted with no booking & were greeted warmly by our host so booked into this motel for 2 nights as we couldn't drive in that weather. The room was very clean, spacious, bed was very large & comfortable...

Needed a nights stop traveling with there family from Northland to Auckland, this was perfect. Modern, clean well equipped, large rooms. To top it off, walking distance to an incredible array of foodie gems in Matakana.

A large, very clean room with king bed, two bunks and a lovely spa bath. Lovely and clean, ample cooking facilities and a great decked veranda to the rear where you can enjoy a nice glass of Ransome Estate wine. Central Matakana right behind the pub and so close to the Saturday market which is a must visit. Everything closes...

Awesome location just behind the main street and pub. Beautiful and clean, great set up. Downside was our bed. King size (two singles pushed together), lumpy and hard so we slept in the two singles in the 2nd bedroom which were a little less lumpy but still hard. Would be great spot for a family, well equipped with awesome playground.
