Not the first time I have stayed at this place and wont be the last. Great spacious rooms not your typical NZ box but more like the Australian rooms. Great pool and spar and believe it of not a good old kiwi playground for the kids complete with climbing rope's and mini structures etc

Whangamata used to be home for us so when we planned a visit in March which coincided with a family wedding and family accommodation was full, we decided to treat ourselves to a few nights at Breakers Motel. What a great idea that was. Our pool side room was fantastic. Big, spacious and very clean. We had a spa bath...

Very comfortable apartments - clean and spacious. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Excellent place to stop. The hot tub was a godsend. Backs on to the marina and is only a short walk to the 'town' centre. It's a very spread out place but the pubs shops and restaurants are only a short walk.

Breakers was under new management (3 months in) and to be honest I could not fault them. Great motel, clean, welcoming, allocated parking, daily service.... nothing was "too much trouble" and all requests were met exceeding our expectations. Can fully recommend staying here.
