Westhaven Logo

Westhaven Motel is back under Matthews family management. We are the only harbourside motel at Mount Maunganui and are situated directly across the road from a safe swimming beach. The motel was built in 1969 and retains all the hallmarks of an old-fashioned family motel with spacious units, full kitchen facilities and separate bathrooms and toilets. We have nine units, with four having harbour views, and five facing an internal courtyard. Seven units have one bedroom, and we have two large two bedroom units which are particularly suitable for families.

You will enjoy watching the constant activity on the harbour, with shipping, sailing, kayaking, wake-boarding and many other water based activities; or stroll along the beach to the wonderful Mauao (Mount Maunganui) which has an easy walking track around it, with stunning views.  If you are feeling more energetic climb the Mount and enjoy the expansive views from the top then finish by relaxing at the lovely hot salt water pools at the base.

It is an easy walk round to the main surf beach, or to the Mount Maunganui shops and cafes. Or take your car and explore the wider Bay of Plenty area.  We are also an easy day trip to Rotorua.

All our units have at least one bedroom, a full kitchen and separate shower and toilet, off street parking, SKY Guest Select (50+ channels), iron & ironing board, free Wifi, tea & coffee and daily newspaper provided. Guest laundry on site. Pets welcome by arrangement.

Come and enjoy a holiday at the Mount the way holidays used to be.  Please contact us by phone 07 575 4753, email info@westhavenmotel.co.nz or use the booking engine link below.  Please note that when booking through the booking engine  your credit card details are held for security only.  You will need to pay for your accommodation when you check in to the motel.
