Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 September 2017

The room was clean and tidy. The surroundings of the motel was neat and tidy too with a swimming pool and BBQ set just outside our rooms. It is also convenient to a supermarket where food is easily available.

Peter the owner is an accommodating person and we had a wonderful time there.

The motel & campground has great view of the Haruru Falls! It is not too far a distance, from Paihia town, so easily accessible. The room that we were in, was clean & quiet. The owner, Peter, is an awesome guy! Very helpful & informative

Our group of 8 spent 2 nights at the motel on the ground floor. Peter was simply fantastic and helpful - gave us tips and ideas of what to do. Helped us organize transport for dinners in the town centre. We had a great time. The motel units are clean, airy and well designed. Kitchen was well equipped and we could cook without any leaving smell in the sitting hall and sleeping area!!! There is a swimming pool just right at your door step. Unobstructed view from the pool overlooking the river!! Great place to have a break!!! Thank you Peter for being a wonderful and amazing host.

Perched on a hill just overlooking Haruru Falls and the Waitangi River, the motel was just wonderful. The view of the falls and the river from the motel was great. Rooms are clean and comfortable bedding. A kitchen that is decently stocked with a stovetop and microwave. The grounds are very well kept and a barbecue and small pool is available to keep things informal and easy. Theres a campground for those wishing to camp out, although we didnt. Bestlt is Peter the owner, who arranged our golf game at Kerikeri for the men and directed the women in a walk around the Falls into Waitangi Treaty grounds. Peter also recommended us to Alfresco Restaurant for some of the best steaks and lamb for dinner as well as the local RSA (surprise, surprise) for great meals. An A-plis for location, great accommodation and a great host.

We camped here for 2 nights in a tent and had a great view of the falls. The swimming pool was a great bonus and all the facilities were very clean. There was a BBQ and a small indoor kitchen for cooking but no indoor dining area. We enjoyed our stay and the view from our tent was great.
