Awesome Motel , exceptional cleanliness

Pros: The cleanliness, comfort , location to everything and the pool and spa also the owners were just lovely and so helpful . Very cheap too!
Cons: maybe air conditioning but did provide a fan which was a great touch for the muggy weather we had when we stayed .
Location: Close to town , you can walk if you want , nice bakery across the main road and service station if you need supplies.
This Motel was awesome , I have stayed in a lot of Hotels and Motels around New Zealand and the world for my employment and I would rate this as one of the best that I have ever stayed in . The bed was so comfortable , the room was so clean I could see my reflection in the kitchen sink ...I honestly will be recommending this Motel to everyone I meet that might be going to Whangarei for what ever reason !
