Stayed at breakers for two nights in an upstairs spa room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms very nice, spacious and warm. Well kitted out. Lovely views from the balcony and close to the marina and town. Would highly recommend.

Stayed for one night with my wife at Breakers. The host was most welcoming and informative on our arrival. Our unit was extremely spacious and meticulously clean. A private spa pool was on the deck outside our room. Our bed was most comfortable with crisp clean sheets. The shower had excellent water pressure and a great hot water supply. The...

We stayed 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The room is large and the spa was delightful and overlooked the marina. Quiet rooms with large bathroom. Hosts were lovely and the premises were very well kept. Daily servicing was included so was lovely after a big day to come back to a tidy room. Will definitely be back!

It is reassuring to know that, should you stay at a particular location, you know exactly where the best accommodation is. Whangamata has some very good motels and apartments but for me the best is clearly Breakers. The rooms are clean, bright and comfortable - try and get one upstairs with a refillable spa on the balcony.It is a pleasure...

Not the first time I have stayed at this place and wont be the last. Great spacious rooms not your typical NZ box but more like the Australian rooms. Great pool and spar and believe it of not a good old kiwi playground for the kids complete with climbing rope's and mini structures etc

Whangamata used to be home for us so when we planned a visit in March which coincided with a family wedding and family accommodation was full, we decided to treat ourselves to a few nights at Breakers Motel. What a great idea that was. Our pool side room was fantastic. Big, spacious and very clean. We had a spa bath...
