Very clean motel with good service

The motel is really clean. All the facilities needed are provided and everything is clean and tidy. It is a very spacious room. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful. The view from the motel is very good which is facing the sea. I would like to come back for another stay if I am in Tauranga again.

Location

Large well appointed rooms. The bed was not overly comfortable, possibly due to the electric blanket (not needed early January) being on the bed without an additional layer for comfort. The location was great and room was clean and functional.

Good location for town centre.”

This is a well cared for motel near the town centre, however it is about a 15/20 minute drive away from the Mount. The room with a water view was great and spacious.

Well Located in Tauranga”

This motel is well located on a quiet street that dead ends at the water. The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small and the shower leaked water, but other than that no complaints.
