Perched on the hill just a short walk from the marina and waterfront in the historic village port of Opua we enjoy views of our stunning NZ scenery, from the Waikare Inlet and the Veronica Channel to the surrounding bush-clad hills and a clear night sky. Opua Motel is small, friendly and welcoming, a place to relax and call home, offering affordable boutique accommodation and facilities. Our self contained units are modern and stylish, with various options available to accommodate small family groups, friends, couples and single travellers – including those with accessibility needs – all welcome.
We are also walking distance to bike hire for the Pou Herenga Tai Twin Coast Cycle Trail or you can easily bike a couple of km to the start of the Trail.
Come join Marnie, our happy little chappy Arthur and myself Rich in our charming wee motel on the hill. Situated an easy walk or ride down to the start of the trail with a restaurant and general store en route, its the ideal place to start or end your adventure.
We offer a guest laundry and you can help yourself to our veges and herbs if you like! Lemon for a G&T?
There’s tui’s in the trees, great sea views, bbqs and Bush walks here, and friendly family atmosphere.
Book with us and if you’re thirsty we’ll throw in a ice cold beer! Stay on for a few days to enjoy the nearby walks and attractions that we’d love to show you.
It’s the castle that cares, a place to rejuvenate before or after a ride.
We also run Tango Jetski Tours, the most fun way to see the Bay of Islands – like bikes of the sea you get to appreciate the wildlife beautiful surrounds first hand. Nothing compares, everyone from young to old loves the experience.
