I have stayed here three times on business so far, and each stay has been great. The location is excellent and there is plenty of car parking. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and very attractively decorated.
There is a wonderful cafe at the motel which has a delicious range of breakfast options, including a range of cooked breakfasts (mushroom dishes, etc), which aren't meat-based. Staff are friendly and helpful.
I'd go so far as to say that this is my all-time favourite motel - and I do a lot of travelling!

We stayed two nights as we visited to do the White Island Tour. We were surprised by the size of the spacious room we had on the second floor. Not too much of a problem getting the bags up there either.

Great little on site cafe provides breakfasts and lunches. They make great coffee too.

The staff we dealt with were very friendly and helpful, making the stay more pleasant. A short walk to the wharf for the tour and a short walk to town also, so very handy to shops, restaurants etc.

Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the adjacent white front villa for our trip to White Island. As the tour was cancelled for the first two days of our stay, we extended another night, and ended up with a lovely four nights. The fully serviced accommodation is very spacious with a sunny verandah and front garden, a huge reception hall with french doors and authentic decorative log burner fire, a generous sized lounge with leather 3 piece suite and telly, kauri kitchen/diner and very nice bedroom/en-suite. Fabulous! The icing on the cake was to have a huge cooked breakfast and drink of your choice delivered to the villa each morning at a time to suit. The villa has its own parking space, and is in a convenient location to walk to town and right opposite the boarding point for the tour. Was very pleasant to sit on the verandah in the late afternoon to watch the setting sun across the river. And of course the highlight of our stay was the tour to White Island in beautiful weather, such an unusual experience to see and climb among the geothermal activity, saw dolphins en-route, enjoy the company of the friendly guides, and eat a nice packed lunch on the way back.

Room Tip: Stay in the villa!

Originally, we wanted to stay only one night. Finally, we slept there three times. The rooms have everything you might need, it s exceptionally clean, well maintained, good beds, very friendly staff, especially receptionists. They even called us after we left to tell us that we forgot something in our room.

We first slept in a motel room and then changed (for the same price) to the nearby bungalow which was wonderful. It s in fact an very nicely renovated family house with a full equipped kitchen and a garden. Our boy and his friend loved to play football there and we had our tea and cake in the garden, too.

Also the location is perfect - just some steps away from the waterfront and the lovely strip of shops if you wish. Parking is - as normally in NZ - available at the hotel.

We also highly recommend the volcano tours they offer.

Room Tip: the bungalow are wonderful if you travel as a family.

A perfect retreat for a month long business trip.
Attentive, friendly service. Great cafe. Decent rooms, and easy access to the only boat access to White Island if that's your thing.(It should be your thing)
Stay here.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be quiet, though the two bedroom cottage is great value if you want a little more...

This was a superbly equipped motel in Whakatane.
The room was spacious with an extra bed. Large bathroom, free laundry. Fully equipped kitchen.
Very helpful staff. Good location.
Great to be located on site for our White Island tour the following day.
