Staff were welcoming from the start and assured us we would have a great stay. They were right. We stayed four days in a top floor unit with deck, table and chairs that was just a stone's throw from the beach. It is handy to local eateries and Whakatane if you need to 'shop'. Hubby's only gripe - nowhere to place suitcases except the bed. Otherwise, we could happily have stayed another week or two. Will definitely be back.

We had a lovely relaxing stay. Just a couple of minutes walk down a quiet side street to the beach. The rooms were a good size the beds comfortable and the whole place was clean and tidy. Well equipped kitchen and full size bathroom. Staff were friendly and helpful. We are already looking forward to our next stay.

This establishment is not at an acceptable standard in our opinion. Shabby, beds not good at all - the place needs a total refurbishment. It could be argued that you get what you pay for - our suggestion would be to go elsewhere if at all possible. The firm alarm waking us in the night because of a fault was the last straw.

Great position, easy walk to the beach - oh, and it's a beautiful beach. Comfortable queen bed but the single is hmm not so great, good shower, cable tv but its kind of a 80's unit and it needs updating. Reasonable price and great proximity to the beach - second day they did change towels but didn't make the beds.

We turned up on the doorstep and we able to get a one bedroom apartment, which was spacious and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked, with views including glimpses of the sea. There was a small balcony off the living area, surrounded by trees filled with tuis and other birdlife. Very comfortable bed and everything we needed for a lovely stay. Beach is a five minute walk away, down one block and across one road. On our list of places to revisit.
