We booked and stayed for one night in a one bedroom with spa pool outside in private courtyard. Place was clean and spacious, had everything we needed and more (including a complimentary snack platter). Hosts Peter and Debbie were most welcoming to my family and I, friendly and professional. Thank you for an enjoyable, pleasant stay. Definitely recommend!

We had a very clean, bright, spacious room which had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean an modern. The kitchenette had a hob which was a real bonus for us. The location was quiet and although we were only passing through I would recommend it.

A long weekend in Whakatane to watch the Pohutukawas come out. The Livingston is clean and straight forward with friendly staff and helpful hosts. We like it quiet, and a few rowdy neighbours nearly ruined it. The motel was not to blame.

I stayed here for three nights on a work visit. I travel NZ quite often for work and this motel was the best I have stayed in for quite a while. The room was large, modern and comfortable. Carpet was soft and new. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was huge with a spa bath. The whole place was clean...

Thank you for posting a review, and for your kind comments. We are very lucky that the motel was built to minimize road noise, and with spacious rooms. Not long ago we replaced all the beds, and the carpet because our guest's comfort is important to us. We'd love to welcome you back to stay with us again.

The hosts are super lovely, and happy to help however they can. Have great recommendations for food in the area. Affordable and comfortable rooms with plenty of space. Can't go wrong with comfy beds, sky tv and unlimited wifi!! Would definitely stay there again!

We stayed here last weekend with friends. It was nice although the shower could have done with a good clean. Beds were nice and firm and it had a large spa outside (some units have them in the bathroom). Good kitchenette, although we were only given 150mls of milk on arrival. When we asked for more we were told you...

Thank you for posting a review on our motel and for sharing your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your unit, and I'm sorry the milk had such an impact on your stay. Unfortunately we only get a milk delivery 3 times a week, so we calculate how many new arrivals we have coming in, and then add extra on. When...
