Reviewed 24 January 2014

We stayed one night only and really wished we had stayed more. This is the place to stay , spacious very clean , well equipped unit with the most amazing sea views. The rooms just had the little added extras, which just it feel like home. The peace and quiet was just so relaxing. Leanne was an amazing host, made you feel at home, nothing was too much trouble and a really nice person. I want to be back there now!

The township of Coromandel was just around the corner and that is a a great place to look around. The meat from the butcher was fantastic, especially the smoked bacon.

Room Tip: Stay longer than one night

We pre-booked this place for 2 nights in November and feel we were misled by the advertising which said that all units had harbour views. We were put in the 'garden unit' which had no view, no window to open for ventilation, seems it had been a garage storeroom renovated. We thought that we were giving ourselves a treat but at the price it was an absolute rip-off. Even the units with views are very highly priced for what you get.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kayaks and bikes to hire when it was fine and books to read when it rained. Very comfy and spacious, great views and excellent hosts. We woke to the sound of birdsong and scent of jasmine.

Just round from Coromandel town we by chance discovered this hidden gem. Fabulous water views, surrounded by native bush and birds it was a place we were sorry to only stay one night. Leanne and Des were fantastic hosts, giving loads of local information, nothing was too much trouble. Unit was very spacious, well equipped and spotless. Will definitely return sooner than later for a longer time. Totally recommended for the peace and quiet alone.

Room Tip: All units are great as all have the views and private balconies.

The one bed rooms are spacious, well equipped, comfy and clean, and best of all they have a great view over the harbour from a very private balcony. Sitting out on the balcony with a riot of NZ vegetation below us, squabbling tuis and amazing views was bliss.

If you like a walk, following the track over the hill into town brings even more great views.

Leanne couldn't have been more helpful and overall the motel is great value.

I would definitely recommend this place as it has a lot going for it:
1. Fabulous location overlooking the harbour
2. Spacious well equipped and clean rooms, comfy beds, great cooking facilities, well positioned & private balconies, quiet location etc etc
3. Very helpful hosts (Leanne & Des) who gave us lots of local advice, lent us a spade to dig at the hot water beach, gave us towels for the spa and would have even lent us their kayak if we had of had the energy!

Room Tip: All the rooms have harbour views

We stayed just for one night at the Harbour View, but the sunset was stunning and the rooms spacious.
Make sure to order breakfast and you will discover that Des is grateful since he gets one made for him too.
We will definitely be back on our next trip through the area
