As a single female traveller I felt so safe and cared for here. The lady on reception was so welcoming and friendly, it really made my stay. My apartment was not one of the absolute beachfront ones, but I still had a lovely little balcony and views of the sea from there. The kitchen facilities were all lovely and new,... More

Good morning Megan_362. Raewyn and I thank you for your kind words. Especially knowing that you felt secure and relaxed while you stayed with us at the Pavilion. Even for partial seaviews, you manage to be able to enjoy them and feel the ambiance of being at Mount Maunganui along with mount "Mauao" and of course the famous Mount Ocean... More

Stayed one night, should have been more. Very friendly and helpful reception (owner). Excellent features and layout and a top quality bed. A really well thought out floor layout. Couldn't ask for more.

What a neat place to stay and getting a full sea views apartment is bliss. Right for the time of arrival we knew we were in for a great stay with the friendly accommodating reception we received. Picture this - sea views, pleasure boats and ships on the sea, a clean open beach, the sun shimmering on the sea -... More

Thank you Brian, It is always great to know that our clients such as yourself went away from your stay at the Pavilions and found the many items associated with the area were also worthy of your valuable contribution.

What a great week we had at the Pavilion's. We were made to feel extremely welcome by Tony and Raewyn (the Managers). Our room was set up perfectly for us as we arrived after hours. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from right at the front door. We loved going for walks around "The Mount". The beach right across... More

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment,( 2a ) for ourselves and our son and his wife. They live overseas, and were really pleased with the views and location. The apartment was a bit dated, and 2nd bedroom a bit small. Also found the smell of cooking from the cafes a bit much and also the bottles being put in the... More

Last minute search for accommodation and got a good deal on hotel.com for a 2 bed room apartment. High end with luxurious décor and amenities. Was well worth the price for 4 adults to stay. Full Kitchen meant we could cook and enjoy the fabulous view out to the pacific ocean. Highly recommend and would stay there again.

Great view, close to the Mount, cafes, restaurants and hot pools. Comfortable bed. High seats at the high outside table give an excellent view of the Mount and the bay. However: This was NOT 5-star luxury accommodation, more like two or three stars at a 5-star cost. Wifi cost $5 for 2 hours. When that ran out, we couldn't get... More

As much as I appreciate reviews and build from them, sometimes I wonder how you can further help people to make sure that they have had a magic experience.

We arrived, tired, in Mount Maunganui after driving from Paihia. We parked, saw this place and decided to see if there was a room. The door was locked but the door phone was answered. We stated our needs and were offered a one bed ground floor apartment. Thankfully it was just perfect. Spacious, clean, full kitchen, comfortable bed, outside seating... More

Thank you Cabojim for your well thought out constructed views of the Pavilions. Yes our office hours may be limited compared to overseas complexes, but as we are not a large 24 hour complex, we believ that our hours of open work (7am - 7pm) along with being contactable by phone 24 hours, works well in most all cases.
