Stayed 2 nights in the motel but also hired a powered campsite for my parents campervan who were travelling with us. Facilities very good both in the Motel and Campgrounds with nothing lacking. Nice friendly staff who were always around and ready to help in every way. Lovely views and very close to Paihia and Kerikeri.
