37 The Landing Motel is a 5-minute walk from Whakatane's Kopeopeo shopping centre. There you can find a supermarket, post office, stationers, hairdressers, ATM machines, butcher, liquor store, takeaway food outlets, and an Indian restaurant. The hospital is nearby as are the Aquatic Centre with hydro slide, sports field and the War Memorial Hall.

Whakatane Town Centre is a short drive away. Here there are great opportunities for 'retail therapy' and many superb cafes and restaurants will deliver evening meals and many provide charge-back facilities.
