Very clean and neat motel. Comfortable bed. Good laundry facility. Great hosts. Lots of eating places nearby. Enjoyed our stay. We didn't use the pool and spa, but water sparkling and area neat and clean.

glad that you've had a great stay. Being in business now for 1 year means we've had time and taken on board suggestions to improve the motel and our service.

If you want clean and comfortable accommodation with friendly service this is the place. Excellent spa and pool. Good location as it is near town but not smack in the middle. A few restaurants are nearby. Best of all not on the main road in and out of Whangarei which is noisy.

It was a last minute decision to stay overnight at whangarei. I booked it online and we were greeted by a lovely helpful lady. The room was great. Perfect size. Bathroom looked brand new. The whole place was very clean and perfect for our needs. The bed was huge. The place was quiet and we had a good night sleep...

Great value for money. Modern and clean kitchen and bathroom. Friendly and helpful owners. They helped us out great when we accidentally locked the bathroom door from the outside late in the evening. Location is also good, supermarket and town basin are in walking distance. Overall a good place to stay.

For those of you who value modern amenities, modern bathrooms/kitchen at competitive price, look no further. Continental Motel's exterior may make you think this is not a good place to visit. Once you step in to the room, you realise that you have made the right decision to stay here and that your money wouldn't buy anything better. Prices are...

Great central location that's close to main roads and easy walking distance to restaurants, tavern and bottle shop. Close to supermarkets and service station. Great pool and spa the kids really enjoyed. Very friendly and welcoming. A very clean and well serviced motel. Will definitely stay there again.

Our family of 4 stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom unit upstairs. The unit was lovely and modern and very clean. The kids loved the pool and spa, and we found the proprietors to be super friendly and helpful. We had an upstairs unit, and the only thing we could fault was the shower pressure. The tap pressure...
