Reviewed 9 November 2009

I have stayed at the Harbourside Lodge for over a month and it was a very pleasent stay for me.
The motel is located very privatly in the port area, with a great view over the marina with all its little sailing boats, the restaurant next door offers good food and they also offer a charge back option to the motel rooms.
Altough you could sometimes hear some noise from the port, it was not disturbing or problematic at all.
The room I was in was very clean, tidy and comfortable to live in for such a long time.
The staff was always very friendly and helpful with information and extra services such as my washing.
I have no complaints about this motel and would recommend it to others.

A middle-of-the-road two-storey motel located in the port area, about a 10-15 minute walk from the city centre. The neighbourhood is a bit bleak, but not problematic. The motel is a couple of blocks from the port, and a brochure does warn that there will be accompanying noise, although we didn’t hear any – that may have been due to the fact that we were there over the New Year’s Day holiday weekend. Clean rooms with basic but adequate furnishings, including a small refrigerator and an in-room safe. Pay a small premium for a harbourside view of many sailboats, although if you have a ground floor room that view is somewhat obstructed by one row of parked cars, so consider asking for a second floor room. A mediocre continental breakfast is included for free; an even less appealing hot breakfast costs NZ$8 extra. Owner Reinhardt went to extra lengths to pick up our group of six and our luggage from the airport on a Friday evening, which was much appreciated; the manager in his absence (Reinhardt’s son?) was very helpful with driving directions and onsite laundry facilities. Not a fancy place (I seriously question its Qualmark 4-star rating), but decent value for the money.
