Reviewed 5 December 2011

We have just had the most fabulous week here. We had a birthday celebration with family and friends and the hosts Barry and Fiona made our time truly memorable with their friendly and helpful service. The units were VERY clean and we had a beachfront unit with the uninterrupted views of the Golden Bay. The units are very well equipped with full kitchen and good bathrooms. The lawn area with 2 large gas barbeques were great - well used by our crowd. The sandy beach is lovely and very safe for young children - we all loved every moment there and plan on making this an annual event! We could not fault Pohara Beachfront Motels - just paradise! Thank you Barry and Fiona.

An amazing place to stay and relax - we had a beachfront unit with direct access to the beach and waking up each morning to wonderful views was a highlight. The unit was immaculately clean and very well presented. We found the hosts Barry and Fiona to be very welcoming, they could not have done enough for us.
Would fully recomend Pohara Beachfront as an affordable, relaxing place to stay.

A really charming motel, with great detached units with a full sized kitchen. Our unit was spotless and well kept, if a little old fashioned in comparison with similarly priced places- but that was part of the charm. It was more like renting a bach than staying at a motel. Our unit had a big deck and there is free access to gas barbecues in the garden. It's in a great location- a literal stone's throw from the beach! The beach, by the way, has to be the safest in NZ, at low tide you can walk out 200m and still only be knee deep. Frustrating if you want to swim, but great for kids! Lots to do in the local area, and friendly hosts. Will be back.

This motel is located just next to a lovely beach in the Golden Bay. From our unit and our own patio we had a superb view of the beach an the sea. This was without question the best motel I stayed in New Zealand.

The unit was spacious and equipped with a kitchen including a oven. Finally, the hosts were very friendly and helpful.

If you visit the Golden Bay do not miss to go to the Wharariki Beach (close to the Farewell Spit), one of the most beautiful spots in New Zealand.
