Fabulous stay in this boutique motel. Location, location, location with views to die for. Lovely large unit spotlessly clean and although older style Steve and Valerie have added new touches to make the motel look lovely, fresh and updated. Uninterrupted views over Mangonui harbour directly in front of picture window and sliding doors with lovely outdoor sitting area. Enjoyed walking...

Dropped in here on spec after my original destination was booked out. The owners were very friendly owners and the views were great, so I booked up for another night. A great place just to chill out and relax.

We decided to stay in Mangonui, drove into town, and found this motel opposite the harbour and within walking distance from restaurants, cafes and other shops. Very comfortable and the managers very friendly. We look forward to our next visit.

Very comfortable bed and a full kitchen. Centrally located with an easy walk to nearby bars and restaurants. Room was very quiet even though it is close to the road. Safe off-street parking is available.

This motel has really to be seen to be believed. The rooms are very clean, well thought out and the view from the window was out of this world. To have a morning cup of tea watching the sun rise over Mangonui harbour is an experience that cannot be missed. For value for money apart from anything else, this place...

We stopped in Mangonui to eat dinner on a rainy night during a road trip and decided to look for a place to stay to get out of the heavy rain. It was around 8pm and the owner attended to us right away and took us inside from the rain. She was interested in knowing about us and was pleasant...

Our lively hosts couldn't do enough for us on our quest for a motel with Sky TV. When we returned Skyless, the lovely apartment they had showed us was still available so we settled in happily for the rest of the day. These older NZ motels are often great value, as the rooms are usually very spacious, with full kitchens...

Great location and price. Hosts made you feel very welcome. Would stay there again as it was very quite and the road was the only thing that separated you from the sea. Lovely little shops in the area. Teresa and Peter. Taranaki
