The surroundings play a huge part in this review of course - Pohara Beachfront Motel is right on the beach, and oh what a beach. The owners were lovely and friendly and even though we had booked their cheapest room, they gave us a better one because they had one available and they had decided to no longer let their cheap room because they felt it wasn't nice enough!
So anyone with that kind of integrity gets my vote. We stayed for three nights, but could have stayed for three weeks. All amenities were available - loved that there was also a compost where we could put our food scraps. The room was clean, linen was clean, views were fab, hosts lovely. We don't have kids, but it would be an ideal spot if you did - you can sit on your deck and watch them play on the huge lawn.
