We stayed 3 nights here in May in 2 upstairs rooms overlooking the bay. Rooms were large, clean and comfortable. It was cold weather so we were glad of the electric blankets on the beds. There was an oil filled heater in one room and we should have asked for another for the other room. The kitchens were spotless and well appointed. The manager was very informative and guided us to many wonderful locations. He booked a Bay of Islands cruise for us at 10% discount and took us in his 4 wheel drive to the ferry terminal. Even offered to collect us after the cruise! There is a supermarket (Countdown) around the corner, best to drive to it. 10 minutes walk into town centre and 7 minutes walk to Shippeys fish and chip restaurant. Close to Waitangi Treaty Centre but best to drive here too. Great location opposite the bay and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend this 10 room small motel.
