This motel has very comfortable, well appointed and good sized rooms. They are arranged so everyone has some private deck space too. It is an easy walk to a number of different places to eat, including a fish restaurant and a pizzeria. We received a warm welcome on arrival and consider that Tairua Shores is justifiably up there with the...

We stayed here after visiting the hot water beach. It is in a lovely small town with supermarket in. The walk along the sea to supermarket was lovely and pleased the owners showed us this instead of walking the main road. It was quiet even though it is on the main road. Room was lovely with a secluded sitting area....

Tairua Shores is well located just a 5 minute walk from the Tairua central shops. Only 1 minute to the estuary beach and a really short drive to the main Tairua beaches. Very spacious, clean, and well-appointed units. We had 8 people in 4 units and all were in excellent condition. We called ahead and they allowed us to check...

I Nice place to stay. Nice and comfortable room. Very clean and great service minded owners. We loved it! The beach was beautiful and Tairua is a great little town. Its only a 20-30 min to Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove. There is a lot to see and do in the area.

We had a great time in Coromandel and it was thanks to Glenn and Allison for their fantastic hospitality. We had never been to the Coromandel and they planned each day for us and made really good recommendations on sights to see during our stay. It also helped that Tairua is a cool little town with loads of character. The...

Great location, lovely clean and spacious units with everything we needed for a great stay. Even accommodated an early check in despite being peak holiday season. Great having the private deck areas and wonderful kitchen facilities. Lovely quiet units and only a few minutes walk to the jetty and township.
