I stayed at this Motel with a walking group for 4 night this week - unit very comfortable, has a lovely pool. Also large grass space, with tables and chairs and BBQ where we could gather in the evening, for shared dinner and chat, and lots of laughs. Easy drive to beach and village, we also went on trip to pest free island, Russell, and Waitangi, all within easy reach. Lovely village, and lots of eating places, if that is what you need. We had lovely balmy sunny weather, after our raining winter at home, and all came home revitalised. Thanks, great hosts.
