Stayed here for 2 nights, very good. Would stay here again and very happy to advise anybody heading to Tauranga to stay here when in town. The service was good and very warm welcoming. Hot cooked breakfast is very yummy.

We had 48hrs to get to tauranga hospital from Perth, Western Australia. Family crisis. We booked the first family room we could get in our budget. We arrived late and were pleasantly greeted. Polite and professional and the typical friendly kiwi. The rooms(although a little dated) always clean and spotless. Loved being there and being home. Thank you for no...

The motel room was shabby and quite dirty. The toilet bowl was very cracked, with the cracks stained a nasty brown colour... tried not to think about this! There were cobwebs above the windows and the curtain rail was filthy - easily seen by guests, I wasn't looking for things to complain about. The "Free WiFi" was only for an...

Very nice and attractive on arrival but on closer inspection, a whole lot different. There was heaps of mould on the bathroom ceiling and spider webs every where, on the outside was spider webs all over the lights and windows. The bed was terrible as you could feel all the springs jabbing you. It feels like the owners have just...

Located very conveniently for our needs close to medical clinic. Unit used has sunny aspect. Pleasant walking routes in 3 directions, with good views of harbour only a minute away. Watch for traffic on exiting at motel entrance, but alternative route is available.

We were very impressed with the space in the studio we had booked. Everything we needed in the kitchen and room to sit comfortably at a table to eat. Good location on main road but still quiet and very comfortable. We will come back.

We shared a one bed roomed unit with lounge bed on the upper level for one night. I booked online and the motel is easy to find. The cost was reasonable for three people. The room was clean and had a spa bath and separate shower box.The manager was really helpful. The disturbing thing (and the Manger did warn us...
