Boutique Motel

The Boutique Motel is the “Duck” of Ducks & Drakes. Comforting, functional, flowing.  Ducks and Drakes Boutique Motel brings accommodation space alive with comfort, colour and flare.   Each of the  2 studio rooms and 3 one bedroom suites have a unique layout and colour scheme – these are not your average beige and brown rooms that look like the inside of a box!  Flowing seamlessly onto the sunny, grassed courtyard and gorgeous garden you will immediately feel at home.  Free Ultrafast Fibre Wi-Fi, 50 Sky TV channels in every room and a fully appointed kitchen, ensure that you want for nothing.

The perfect base to explore Mt Taranaki, the many surfing spots along Surf Highway 45, the myriad of parks and gardens but especially the world renowned Pukekura Park which is within walking distance. Not to mention the Len Lye Centre, Coastal Walkway, Puke Ariki Museum, TSB Stadium, The Racecourse and the many cafes, bars and restaurants all within walking distance.

Friendly staff. Fantastic coffee. Great service. International and local travellers with stories to share and tales to tell.
