Very well laid out units with good facilities although there were a few maintenance issues in our unit but didn't detract at all from our stay. Very helpful staff and an excellent Cafe Restaurant 100 metres up the road

Nothing positive worth mentioning at this place. Manager very unhelpful. Grounds scruffy. Short on parking. Bed hard and very low. Would stay in cabins next door in camping ground if we ever visit again. Looked far better value.

Hi Effin/2016 Thank you for your review, and am disappointed to hear you have nothing positive to say as we pride ourselves in a great location and great customer service. I suppose we can not please all and what is great to one person is not necessary the same for another. Beds are a personal preference, and are purchased as...

It is actually rare that I write a poor review but this really did not do the trick. The most depressing thing was the bed which was small,lumpy and soft. We did not sleep well. The parking is tricky and we could live with that. The rooms are tiny with no view at all which is a shame in such...

Hi Neil, thank you for your review be it good or bad and am sorry the Motel was not for you. Beds are very hard to get right for everyone and is a personal preference. Have checked with other guests that have had the same room and bed and felt it comfortable for them, but will look into it further....

We had a pleasant room (which turned out to be for sale) with adjacent parking. For 2 people the accommodation was well kitted out with a particularly nice bathroom (shower only). Quiet with small patio area outside. 2 minute walk to the beach and restaurant. 1 minute walk to shop.

We stayed 2 nights at the Resort. This place is equipped with everything you need. Clean and very comfortable. We had a courtyard of a reasonable size with a BBQ - very handy. The Lady at the reception was also very accommodating. All in all I can strongly recommend this place.

This is a lovely hotel with a pool and spa. Owner is lovely. The car parking is difficult. The rooms are tidy, clean, a little on the small side. You are around 200metres walk from the beach through the campground. No view, and no community feel to it, it def feels like a hotel. Great for a night or two....

Thank you for your review. Yes with the cars getting bigger and only 1 park per unit it is a little tight, but we do seem to manage with every ones cooperation. The problem arises only for 4 weeks of the year in peak season. It is in the plan to re-brand the motel, as yes it is no longer...

This basic motel was everything we needed. A three minute walk to a gorgeous beach (in high season we were one of a handful of families on it. Joggers---it's long and perfect for a morning run), next door to a small grocer, and across the street from a cafe with Monteiths on tap. Our one bedroom unit was very clean...

Friendly staff, the lady at the front desk wait for my late arrival (late for NZ standards...) and book a restaurant for me. I was on a business trip but Waipu it's a typical holiday destination, then consider that the location is fine, just close to a beautiful beach with mini-market and nice restaurant at walking distance.

Don't let the name of this place fool you; it isn't a resort, just a small, cramped motel with limited parking and an unheated swimming pool that is wedged between two holiday parks. The studios are very small and not particularly well equipped and the mattress on our bed was extremely soft and uncomfortable. You also have to let the...

Thank you for you review and apologise it was just not the place for you to stay. We do agree it is no longer a resort without the Restaurant attached, but would have been in its heyday, and will be re-branded in the next couple of years.
