Welcome to Ngatea Motel
Our warmest welcome to you. Ngatea Motel (previously known as Thames Valley Motel) is situated in Ngatea which is the first town on State Highway 2 on the Auckland to Tauranga route. The town is in the middle of one of New Zealand's main farming area; the Hauraki Plains.
Ngatea Motel is your ideal location if you are looking to explore the internationally recognised attractions of the Coromandel Peninsula and yet be within 100km of Auckland and Hamilton. Rotorua and Tauranga are within a 90-minute drive, so is Hobbiton. Within 20 minutes of us lies the Firth of Thames with the Miranda shorebird sanctuary, hot pools and the historic gold-mining town of Thames. The Hauraki Rail walking and cycling trail from Miranda to Paeroa is also within this distance.
Ngatea Motel lies in the town centre. All cafés in town are within a 5-minute walk from the motel. So are the supermarkets, medical centre, community pool and playgrounds.
Owned and operated by the same owners over the last 15 years, your hosts have excellent knowledge of the local areas. We provide a personal touch to ensure your stay is comfortable and stress free.
