Southpacific Motel & Conferance Centre

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We had a two night stay and we're pleasantly surprised with the size of the rooms,huge bed exceptionally comfortable, excellent shower and helpful hosts.
The breakfast was well priced and divine another point worth noting is it is across the road from the local RSA who serve very good meals and are very friendly.

Room Tip: We had room 18

A favorite place of mine to stay out of town! Friendly staff, great rooms. Always willing to give me a room when I need one. Always clean and tidy and always smiles when you arrive. Would recommend to all!

We had booked for 4 and expected 2 rooms but in fact one couple had to sleep in the couch...
The rooms were small but clean. The beds were good. Unfortunately the toilets were in the bathroom. The surroundings were OK.

Hi Annie,

Thanks for your review, you chose a studio unit which has a king bed and a foldout settee, this is clear on your booking form. You could have easily upgraded to a larger room but chose not to, I appreciate you staying with us and I certainly hope you enjoyed your time in Whangamata. Should you ever return I am sure we can provide the room that most suits your needs as we do have a large selection of them.

My partner and I stayed at the Southpacific Motel for its proximity to a nearby wedding venue in Opoutere. Our host was very friendly and helpful, providing not only a wonderful and clean room, but also local knowledge of the surrounding area. I recommend this motel for anyone staying within the the Coromandel area, or who is looking to experience the area's pristine beaches and trails.

The host was very friendly despite having a big conference the next day. My room was lovely and comfortable with a modern interior finish.
The shower has no equal. It was awesome! I didnt really take advantage of the location due to sleeping early with such a comfortable bed!

Room Tip: upstairs rooms are very private

The room was lovely, and the service made our stay perfect.

Very helpful staff made us feel at home - friendly and welcoming, gave us detailed information on the full range of dining establishments available, and other advice about the town.

The motel isn't really within walking distance of the beach, which is not a problem unless you have walked to whangamata
