We booked last minute as we were just off an international flight and didn't fancy driving straight through to the Coromandel. The manager was wonderfully friendly on the phone and even though we arrived after the office closed he told us just to knock when we got there. The room was modern with plenty of space, spotless, very comfortable and...

We booked this Motel last minute as we did not want to make the drive from Northland NZ to Rotorua in one day and wanted to get through Auckland on the first day. It is a basic Motel at the end of the Main Street which consists of about 10 shops. It was very clean and well organized with large...

We had a concert in Auckland and the only motel that suited our budget was this place. Great beds, great spa and great staff for something that is well under half the price of anything in Auckland itself. We arrived earlier than expected but the lovely lady at the office told us to try the amazing Pokeno ice creams whilst...

After staying in our camper van, it was a pure delight and luxury to stay here. A friendly welcome from the lady on reception and a spotless room. Couldn't recommend it more highly. Kitchen facilities in the room were spot on, no need to empty our van out with our own stuff. Thanks Guys for the great stay.

We were travelling from Paihia to Tauranga and stayed at the Pokeno Motel on the way through. Pokeno is a very quiet place with not much there, but this motel was one of the best for the price we stayed at on the North Island. The hosts were lovely and the room was very spacious and well set out, with...

I've always wondered why this motel is where it is - on a road now rarely used by through traffic unless you are buying an ice-cream at the best ice-cream shop in Auckland - but I digress. We decided to stay here on the way back south and what a great choice. A warm welcome from Greg who managed to...

We stopped off here after a long journey from Tokyo via Sydney. One of our pieces of luggage did not make it however. We were delighted to find a great welcome and excellent service at the Pokeno Motel? The room was large, comfortable and very clean and Greg and Cheryl could not have been more helpful? When our bag did...

We stayed at the Pokeno Motel for two nights. The first was to stay near our dog while he settled into quarantine nearby, then we liked it so much we stayed there again when we picked him up from quarantine. The rooms are immaculately clean. Nice and bright during the day and super quiet at night. The hosts are awesome...
