We booked this motel to be near our family who were holidaying in Whangamata. It was great for them to visit us and share pool time. The rooms were clean with fresh smelling towels changed daily if required. Easy straight walk to shops and cafes. Very easy walk to New World supermarket for supplies. You can stroll round to town...

Stayed here for 3 nights in December as part of a group of 6. We had a two bedroom unit with a sofa bed. The motel is comfortable and my kids liked having amenities like the trampoline, hot tub and playground. It's next to the marina, the boardwalk and the grocery store but a bit further from the main town...

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that your four children 5-12 years old enjoyed our child friendly facilities. Though we were disappointed to see they didn't use our amazing pool a definite favourite with most families. We seem very puzzled by your comments particularly about decor as this has all been professionally updated within 12 months obviously it...

Plenty of room. Good kitchen. Nice pool but the hot tub was a winner! Short walk to the main restaurant street. Thoroughly recommended. Ross is an excellent host. Could have stayed a week and would have if our schedule permitted.

Our private hot tubs are definitely a winner with all our guests though we think our fabulous swimming pool is perhaps an equal winner. Next visit we hope you can arrange your schedule to fit in a week long stay as Whangamata and the Coromandel certainly deserve it, so much to do, not forgetting lazing around the pool building your...

Stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon. We were given an upgrade to the honeymoon suite (room 22) which was fantastic! The location of this place is great, just a short stroll to beach, restaurants and supermarket and it made a great base for exploring the Coromandel. The owners were away when we were there but the lady who...

We stayed here for 4 nights. The room was spacious, very clean and serviced every day. The location is good for exploring the Coromandel Peninsula. Ross is a great and friendly host. The pool looks terrific but it was a bit early to be warm.

Stayed here earlier in the week. Very comfortable, staff helpful and friendly. Convenient location, close to supermarket and pathway around Marina. There is no free wifi that we were offered which makes it difficult when on business. Don't expect to pay for wifi these days.

Thanks for your review. The upstairs rooms do have a wonderful outlook and are very popular with the private spa's on each balcony. We are not sure what happened re the wifi as we do offer a range of options including complimentary connection; our apologies for any confusion.

Stayed over the long weekend. The room was perfect, clean and spotless just how the wife likes it. Location great, right on the Marina, with a short stroll to town and the main supermarket. Couldn't ask for more. Host's were extremely friendly will definitely stay again next time in town.

My husband and I have stayed at Breakers on 3 different occasions. The rooms are always very clean, the swimming pool is beautiful, and staff are very friendly. The rooms with the outdoor spa are also a bonus. Great kitchen facilities. Highly recommend Breakers Motel!

We just stayed for one night off season and found the room very clean and the owners exceptionally helpful. A good kitchen area is provided so it was easy to eat in the room and we were provided with an excellent breakfast. It was chilly in the evening but the heater warmed the room very quickly.
