Our party of three adults booked this motel at the Information Centre at Whangamata at the end of a long drive from Auckland via the Coromandel Peninsula, so it was a "this place has a vacancy, we are tired, let's go for it".
Great place. Two bedrooms. Good size kitchen and living/dining room. A pleasant two minute walk to the beach. We drove into the town to go to the supermarket, but you could walk it in around 15 minutes.
The owners are friendly and helpful. The Wifi, while free, was very dodgy and we had to stand close to the office with our iPads to get reception. The owners apologised for this and said the reception is usually very good
