Welcome to the Goldmine Motel
We are a friendly, family-owned motel situated in a lovely quiet location in historical Waihi.
With 10 spacious, warm and comfortable units we can accommodate most types of guests including corporate stays, weekend getaways for couples and families or longer stays for those who want to explore the diverse local area. There is so much to see and do!
Our motel is a short walk to Waihi’s town centre which has many lovely cafés and restaurants to choose from as well as a great range of locally owned stores and boutiques where you can browse and shop. Martha Mine is a must-see attraction while you’re in town with daily tours available to book, or the free rim walk (a 5km loop) is a great alternative.
The start (or end, depending on which way you choose to explore it) of the Hauraki Rail Trail is only a quick two minute bike ride from our door, making us the perfect spot to base yourself for this adventure.
The gorgeous Karangahake Gorge walkways are easily accessible by bike or walking via the trail, or you can choose to ride the heritage Goldfields Railway into the Waikino Station and start your adventures from there. We can assist with bike hire and transportation arrangements too, making your experience as seamless and easy as possible.
Because of our location right at the base of the glorious Coromandel Peninsula, day trips from here are easily possible and Waihi Beach is only a 15 minute car ride away.
We offer free unlimited fibre WIFI, with connected Smart TVs allowing you to sign in to your favourite streaming platforms such as Netflix or Lightbox.
Dog friendly by appointment only, please contact directly to discuss.
