    About this area

    Snells Beach

    Salty Dog Inn is located near the beach and in an area with good shopping. Matakana Village and Matakana Weekend Market are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Omaha Beach and Goat Island. Our guests appreciate the inn's quiet location.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    Stayed in 2 bedroom spa suite. Spa button didn't work for bubbles, toilet cistern was noisy and kept jamming and washers needed replacing on vanity. Half melted wall heater looked terrible and should be just removed. This unit could be very nice with a little maintenance. Very quiet location.

      • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

      Very run down ,No reception to check in or out have to walk around loking for staff. Units on second floor up very steep dirty staircàse.All windows were dirty and verandah. Stained toilet bowl and seat ,shower flooded over bathroom floor and cold tap would not turn off in sink. No WIFI in rooms. RESTAURANT 3 meals were good but one meal was burnt. Breakfast was okay. This was very disapointing stay needs big refurbishment to bring up to standard of othe hotels we stayed in . Would not recommend.

      Very quiet in which my partner and I could really enjoy our trip. It's also close to the beach and a few shops that were quiet handy. Would definitely come back!
