This is a delightful place to stay. We had spent a couple of nights in Auckland and then arrived in Mangonui for 3 nights... we were in the downstairs suite with an outside verandah, facing the garden. No trouble with traffic noise despite facing the road. The owners are very welcoming and made this a special place to stay.
Mangonui is such a relaxed and lovely little town. Morning run/walks along the waterfront were stunning - just step outside and go. The room was a good size, well equipped and very comfortable. Sadly the Acorn restaurant, which has rave reviews, was closed for the moment. However, we ate at The Waterfront Cafe, a two minute walk away and it was so good that we returned there for each evening.
