“Convenient, comfortable, congenial and courteous hosts”
Reviewed 17 September 2010

We have stayed many times at the Beachcomber Motel and have found the accommodation convenient to the beautiful beach and a short walk to all shopping. Adequate, clean, kitchen facilities. Owner/managers Phil and Margaret have invariably been helpful and hospitable - couldn't be nicer. We have no hesitation in recommending the Beachcomber to others, including those whom we know will be traveling to New Zealand from Vancouver.

Just the right distance from the airport to make any Northland destination easily reachable .We were greeted by Phil a very friendly host who soon made us feel at home.The welcoming treatment of Phil and Margaret was what made the Beachcomber stand out for us.
The Beachcomber is in a great situation with a lovely beach just over the road and a few minutes walk to the shops.So dont stay on the motorway,get off at Silverdale and you cant miss it.
Highly recommended as a place for the night or a few days relaxation.

This place is one of those old motels built in the late 70's early 80's which have only had a minimal amount done to them since opening so is now starting to show its age.
The window catches were starting to corrode away in places and the shower water temperature ranged between hot and burning but just right was very elusive.
Also some of the cleaning was a bit lacking with mould and mildew on the roof around the shower area.
However on the positive side the location is good being about 2 minutes walk to the beach and town and at NZ$110 a night for 3 people it was okay value.
So if you are looking for economical but not flash then maybe this place will suit you.
