Vista Motor Lodge Wairoa Reviews
Settle in beside the river Nov 22, 2008
The Vista is the most popular of the motels in Wairoa and this is most likely because of the great restaurant within the complex.
There are 27 motel rooms and most are used by professionals working in the Wairoa area. The decor leaves much to be desired though it may have been first class back in the 70s.
All units have Sky TV available and with a tariff of $90 (+$12 for extra guests) the cost is good for what you get.
Most of the rooms have a kitchenette equipped with all the things you'll need to look after yourself or you could wander across the driveway, past the swimming pool, and into the restaurant. If that is too much for you after your day on the beach or the river then meals can be delivered to your door.
Some of the suites have spa baths but I usually stay in a room with a King sized bed and a shower. My one complaint about the place is that the hot water is always delivered out of the tap at a dangerously scalding temperature. Every time I stay here I wonder how many families with children have had trouble with the water.
There is plenty of room to park around the motel so you can easily leave the car there and walk across the bridge into the small town center.
Wairoa is a lovely spot for sitting on the bank, under the historic lighthouse, and watching the world go by.
If you like to fish this is the place as you have the choice of fresh or salt water adventures.
