Reviewed 14 February 2013

From my first enquiry with this operator, I was impressed. Their friendly co-operative attitude was evident.
On arrival, we had a very friendly greeting before being shown to our studio unit. You could not help but be impressed. The unit seemed to sparkle, & the care & cleanliness was evident. Both the main room & bathroom were of a very good size, & tiled throughout. We were impressed by the marble walls in the bathroom. There is a small but very adequate kitchen area. & a small dining table & chairs. The bed is HUGE at least a super king size. Two small lounge chairs, T.V. & a couple of small cabinets basically complete the furnishings.
There is a balcony with outdoor table & chairs plus a private spa pool.
Our outlook was very pleasant being over both the resorts pool & the nearby Marina & small reserve.
The main shopping area plus the main beach are about a 10 minute flat walk away, & there is a large Supermarket about 5 minutes away.
Overall, we were very impressed.

Marie and Doug made us very welcome, with personal attention and were the only ones to show us around our room in 6 weeks of touring NZ. We had a delightful, spacious room, which was well equipped, and included a hot tub on our balcony.
The Motel was well located behind the Marina within easy reach/ walk of all the amenities of Whangamata.
We highly recommend this Motel and would love to return ourselves another time.

We were very fortunate to have been told about this lovely motel.We were touring North Island and were booked in by our travel agent.We were upgraded to a spacious room with a Hot Tub.My wife does not do Hot Tubs except in very secluded and private locations but we enjoyed the evening and looked out to the river,the tide of which which seemed to be more out than in, from our balcony. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly and the accommodation was very comfortable.We have no hesitation in recommending "Breakers" to all visitors to the area.Note that the pronunciation of this town in "Maori" is " Fongamatar" !! Happy Days!

Room Tip: If one is available-ask for a room with a Hot Tub!

The room was very spacious and well equipped with good kitchenette (hob and microwave) and table for eating in the room. Wifi was a good speed but a little flaky. Our room has a secluded patio with hot tub and table & chairs for eating outside, and the owners were very helpful. DVD players were available to borrow free of charge and there is a communal gas BBQ. Very close to beach and 5 mins walk to supermarket. Bed was large but very firm which was the only negative.

Room Tip: Go for the room with a hot tub!

We have travelled all over New Zealand recently and this was one of the best places we stayed although not the most expensive. The owner, Marie could not have been more helpful. The room was spacious and immaculately maintained. The kitchen area contained both microwave and hob and was well equipped. The bed was super kingsized. Surprise, surprise on the balcony which overlooked the Marina was a spa bath, luxury indeed. There was also a pool , barbeque area and laundry facilities.
