Awesome location. I found the room a little dated eg blinds were old so hard to open and close, bedspread may have been 10 years old but appeared a new bath had been installed and the room included a washing machine and dryer which would be great for families staying a few nights. The room was clean and tidy.

The room we had for three adults was really nice. There were two twin beds in one room and a double in the second room. There was a small balcony overlooking the street and Mount Mauganui. There was a small kitchenette and separate bathroom. The room was very clean and tidy when we arrived. There was also a washing machine... More

The rooms were not ready in time and when they were there was no toilet paper in the bathroom, the sheets were stained and they hadn't left us a cord for the electric blanket. Very dirty bed sheets and carpet floors. Overall not a pleasant hotel to stay at. Also NO WIFI in the rooms - big let down. Location... More

Lovely, spacious apartment close to main beach, hot pools and eateries and 5-10 minute walk from 'main street' eateries and shopping. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Right at the base of The Mount, our apartment didn't have an ocean view but front ones may have. Unfortunately the big new hotels block out some of the views of these existing accommodation... More

We always book Calais while we are at the Mount Maunganui. White the place is simple and a bit old. The cleanliness and their nice staff made this place excellent. For the location and the price, this place is very good value for money.

Very nice and clean place. Prime location right in the middle of the action and right by the Mount. Plenty of eateries around. However, if you are driving them everything is just minutes away. We were lucky enough to get the room which was overlooking right at Mount. It was a fantastic view in the morning

Best value for money in this location, literally opposite the mount. No sea views. I booked on wotif so bit disappointed I didn't get house keeping but did have fresh towels. Tidy enough but was a very tired motel in general. No wifi available in rooms?? That was weird. Bed felt about 100 years old. Good for a quick stop... More

Situated overlooking the bay and adjacent to Mount Maunganui, Calais was one of the most enjoyable places on our new Zealand trip. The room was upstairs, well appointed (including a laundry), spotless and had a private balcony, ideal for late afternoon drinks looking over the water. The hot baths are located immediately over the road and interesting walks up the... More
