Looking for peace, privacy, comfort and space in your home away from home? Welcome to Top Motel Whangarei, your ideal holiday accommodation choice in scenic, sub-tropical Whangarei, just perfect for a great getaway or as a base from which to explore our wonderful part of the country. You’ll find our Studio, 2 Bedroom or 4 Bedroom Motels less than 2 kms from the city centre, tucked away down a quiet, no-exit side street, where each is a stand-alone, separate unit, all set on 2 acres of park-like grounds. With spacious, natural timber interiors and outdoor decks or patios that capture the sun, you’re guaranteed a relaxing break. The kids will love the space and outdoor environment too.

An internationally awarded park and large scenic reserve is right on our boundary, and creates a stunning backdrop and cosy ambiance. Enjoy superb bush and riverside walks, directly accessible from our property, in Parihaka Scenic Reserve, awarded the prestigious international Green Flag Award in 2013 – one of just 14 awarded in the southern hemisphere. Tracks will take you to the renowned, photogenic Whangarei Falls, or to Quayside, Town Basin where great restaurants and cafes overlook the picturesque yacht harbour, and where you’ll find vibrant galleries, boutique stores, artisan wares and market, fantastic museums as well as an extensive children’s playground recommended by Lonely Planet, and the outstanding harbour-side Sculpture Trail. If you’d rather drive, it’s less than 2 kms or 3 minutes drive to the Town Basin, Quayside, and just 6 kms to Whangarei Falls by road.

For a truly incredible dining experience, book in to ‘A Deco’, consistent winner of Cuisine Restaurant and Chef of the Year awards, which is just an easy, flat, 1 km stroll away. A range of supermarkets, shops and other dining options are also an easy 1 km walk away.

Whangarei is quite literally the city of 100 beaches – and we know all the ‘secret spots’, so definitely not to be missed is some time exploring our stunning, top rated coastline (2 = in the world; National Geographic) with its pristine beaches, from long, sandy shorelines to small, secluded, pohutukawa-fringed bays, truly perfect for some real rest and relaxation.

There are so many more nearby attractions as well; take a day tour out to see the largest sea cave in the world, enjoy spectacular snorkelling and diving at the world-renowned sub-tropical waters of the Poor Knights Islands (best sub-tropical diving in the world), hire kayaks, try surfing, sky-diving, or zip-lining the aerial circuits through our fabulous 100% safe Adventure Forest. Or you could browse art galleries and museums, visit the large cats at Kingdom of Zion, try some of the superb bush or coastal walks and hikes, or tour an award-winning local winery. Our friendly Reception team can advise you and make all the arrangements for you.
