The rooms are comfortable with under tile heating so warm in winter. There is a outdoor heated swimming pool and a indoor heated thermal pool that was not in operation which was a pity as our visit was in winter. Mobile phone reception is almost non existing in the rooms. We use 2 degrees and Telecom but for some reason... More

We booked two units. One for us and one for my parents, the hosts were both absolutely lovely and kind as well as helpful. The rooms were spotlessly clean from top to bottom, not a long drive to town but quiet and peaceful. We all highly recommend this warm comfy motel

We were warmly welcomed by Grant & Judy and directed to our very clean unit. We had our old dog with us so it was great to have somewhere where she was also welcome. Our young grandson visited and prefered the swimming pool to the beach and sea. The water was warm, clean and tasted and smelt great. It was... More

We needed a place to stay where we could take our dog. She is part of our family and we like to take her with us but there are not many places who will allow dogs in the room. However we struck gold with Cottage Park. The apartment was lovely and we had a little court yard which was ideal... More

Thank you cottage park thermal motel: we could bring our dog with us because of your pet friendly option. The apartment was very spacious, verandas, ranch doors to enclosed court yard which was handy with the dog. We will definitely come back.

This is a extremely clean and tidy motel with great facilities and perfect position to get around Tauranga and Mt Maunganui . The hosts Grant and Judy are very helpful. Extra good as we could bring our little Jack Russell who travels everywhere with us. Mike & Olga

I think staying at this motel in Tauranga was really terrible especially bathrooms because the floor does not have carpet so I would not recommend this motel to family, friends and relatives coming to stay in Tauranga. The floor at Cottage Park Thermal Motel was really cold and more likely to make people sick

We love staying here during winter when we come down for our Agility dog events. They have lovely floor heating to keep us toasty, the dogs are allowed inside. Judy & Grant are always helpful and accommodate where ever possible. I have stayed her when down for business also as I've needed to bring my dogs. They have always given... More

We came to Tauranga for a sports tournament with 16 ladies and we were thrilled by the accomodation and the hospitality. The first thing that strikes you is how lovely warm the units are. The owners tell us the entire property is heated by a Geothermal bore which heats the rooms, Spa Baths and Swimming Pool. The rooms were modern,... More

Relocating to the Bay of Plenty from Auckland I stayed at this motel for about 6 weeks on my own. Travelling with a pet there was not much to choose from. Rooms were shabby but clean. They charge for Wi-Fi and there was no SKY. 2 weeks into my stay I had continual noise on the roof as if someone... More
