Reviewed 1 week ago

Old school small complex in a top spot immediately adjacent to the harbour. Also just a gentle stroll to the local shops, restaurants etc. Roomy and well maintained, very relaxing vibe due to the close proximity of the water. Steve is a great host and a genuine character.

Right on the waterfront to observe all the action. Very well presented older style motel unit with everything provided - even ice in the deep freeze. This seems to be a failing with most New Zealand accomodation units that ice is not available on hand when you arrive. Full marks to the Esquire. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay being handy to...

We drove into Mangonui on Guy Fawkes night and luckily stopped at the first motel we came across. The managers Steven and Valerie were very welcoming even though it was late and we were delighted with the size and comfort of the unit. The views across the water are something else again, but it was the managers that made this...

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...
