“Wish I could have stayed longer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

One of the most memorable of our stays. The rooms are really spacious with comfortable sofas, and the deck outside is superb. Comfortable chairs slightly under cover and table and chairs on the very spacious decking area. The views and sunsets were spectacular. The owner who we saw (we never did see Des) was funny(amusing funny) , helpful and friendly. I could have made my base here if there hadn't been so many other places to see.

Room Tip: From what I saw they all seemed to be good rooms.

My husband and I stayed here in February. The room was delightful - clean, welcoming, spacious (it had a second bedroom so loads of room for the two of us to put stuff) but the view from the deck was just amazing. Sitting there with a glass of wine at the end of the day was so memorable. Leanne was very friendly and helpful. Incidentally the pics show it before the plants had grown round - now all the decks are very private. The only small snag was that the opening time of reception suddenly changed from 8am to 9 on the Saturday we were leaving so we had to slightly change our travelling plans. On the whole this was a wonderful place to stay

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra for the harbour view rooms - well worth it

We originally booked in for one night but as luck would have it we were able to stay three nights at this fabulous place. Leeane could not do enough for us and many thanks for drying the washing!The information pack is humourous and informative. The rooms are of generous proportions and beautifully clean with fantastic views over the harbour. The kitchens are well equipped. Each room has it's own private balcony and parking space. The foliage dividing each room provided lovley fragrances and a home to a myriad of birds and wildlife. This is a greta place to relax.

On our first night the sun-set was amazing; such a display of fabulous colours. It was a twenty minute walk into Coromandel town. The town has a selection of shops, bars and restaurants to suit all budgets.

Would not hesitate to recommend Harbour View; can't wait to return.

This lovely motel is just north of the city, facing the harbour.
The balconies are ingeniously designed with foliage for privacy, but great views of the harbour straight ahead.
The kitchens were extremely well equipped. It was easy to prepare meals when everything you need is there!
The towels were extra thick and luxurious.
Leanne was very helpful and a wealth of information.

My wife and I spent two nights at this wonderful, tranquil spot overlooking the harbour. Excellent facilities and only a few minutes drive to the main Coromandel shops. Peaceful and pleasant, a great place to unwind for a real break. Great hosts. The in room guest information guide is in my opinion one of the most humorous that I have come across in over 40 years of staying in motels and hotels. Very very funny and shows a personal touch that is often missing in such information packs. I loved the comments about advising the motel if you are going to head way up the top end - priceless, but see it for yourself

Room Tip: If you have the option to upgrade to a room with a deck area, it is well worth it. Sitting outside...

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.
