This motel is set on the main road 15 minutes walk from the town centre. The rooms were spacious, clean and functional. There was no noise from the traffic. The managers looking after the motel during our stay could not have been more helpful. They recommended the Osteria restaurant for our evening meal. We got very energetic during our stay... More

Would thoroughly recommend this motor inn. My husband and I stayed while touring this region of New Zealand. Very clean and comfortable, excellent value for money. The people could not have been more friendly or helpful, made our stay really enjoyable. A little way out about ten minutes walk into main area but well worth it.

A lovely spot for a short trip. Friendly and sincere service. Has everything we needed. A short walk from the beach. Even though its facing the main road - it was quiet at night. Parking is included as well as laundry service and WiFi.

We are from the USA and stayed 2 nights while on Holiday. The owner was most helpful and really knows the area and most restaurants and was able to provide GREAT advice and even drove us to the bus stop! Great location, close enough to walk everywhere but just far enough away to be quiet. It was very clean and... More

This was a very good allround experience and will stay here again as we visit family in the area. Location is very good, rooms are really nice [recently refurbished], clean and well equipped. Staff were very helpful. It was full both nights we stayed and that is no surprise.

Only a few blocks from the main shops and restaurants in Mt Maunganui which is very handy. The motel is nicely furnished and has a good feeling. There is a small plunge pool with lots of chairs around it in a sunny corner. The hosts when we were there, Joy and Bernie were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.... More

This motel has everything. Its clean, has off street car parking, has spacious and quiet rooms, very helpful and friendly staff, and the location is so close to the shops and restaurants of the Mount, you really can't ask for anything more. I can not fault this place, and would recommend to anyone. That said, it doesn't cater that well... More
