I was wanting to stay here with family coming from other parts of the country but did not get the chance as the gentleman on the phone was so rude when enquiring about the rooms. Sorry but i'd rather spend my money else where thanks.

We were in a tight spot and needed a room for the night. These units are clean and large and the service is excellent. Nice outlook into the golf course and close to the beach and local eateries. Will stay again if in the area.

We had 5 nights here over Christmas and used it as a base to visit family. An older and pretty basic motel but very clean, tidy and well maintained. A good honest motel with very enthusiastic, helpful and pleasant managers - nothing was too much for them. We've found our new base when visiting family in the area. Great location...

Great Little Hotel. Only spoiled by the Wi-Fi system which requires going to the office to get another ticket. It became very weary! Nice little swimming pool and views over the Golf Course! Restaurants at the beach are about a 10 minute walk.

We were just passing through, looking for a bed for the night, and came across this delightful motel. The owner was friendly and showed us the room. It was a bit more at $120, than our budget set point, but the room was fresh, spacious and had lovely new carpets. The linen was clean and the bed gave us a...

Nice and clean, very comfortable beds and good location. Had all the facilities you would need. Was quiet as it was away from the road and handy having two rooms in the same unit to have family together. Would recommend to people wanting to stay in the area.

It's been many years since I slept with my head against a concrete block wall spit was a big step back in time to stay at this motel close to Waikanae Beach. To be fair the bed was comfortable but the room faced the road and there is a surprising amount of traffic noise in this neck of the woods....
