We stopped by Tauranga for one night on our roadtrip back to Auckland and chose to stay in Bethlehem after viewing the positive reviews. We were immediately warmly welcomed by the Japanese host whom were very helpful. We requested for a room further away from the main road as advised by some of the tripadvisor commentors. The unit was spacious... More

We stayed here for 4 extremely comfortable nights in what was a well appointed, well equipped and very clean 1 bedroom unit. Our accommodation was away from the busy road so, all in all, quite quiet as far as road noise was concerned. The hosts gave us a friendly welcome, even to the extent of having the heating on in...

Our stay at the motor inn was excellent. A great place to spend some quiet time after a busy day. We were warmly welcomed by Matt & Saho who were very helpful and knowledgeable. The daily sprucing of our room was greatly appreciated. Awesome location.

Good location, you can easily walk to local shopping area with cafes and supermarket. Rooms are clean. It is by a very busy road and can be quite noisy. Fridge needed replacing it wasn't very cold but otherwise a nice place to stay especially if going to weddings at millbrook winery its a couple minute walk

Thank you for your review on our Motel, although it is a very interesting one at that considering the follow aspects that have been left out. I personally spoke with your family and the person who booked the rooms the next morning when I was back, and apolozised several times for any confusion and clearly stated that if there are... More

The location of this motel is very convenient for the area and within easy walking distance to a good shopping complex. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and the young man in reception very helpful.

We felt like we were at home; could have stayed weeks comfortably. Reasonably up-to-date decor and a decent quality unit. The little courtyard was perfect for breakfast and relaxing after dinner. Our hosts gave excellent service - came to the front desk in seconds, regardless of the time. There are not a lot of amenities or attractions nearby, but a... More

Very capable and helpful management, excellent quiet location while still handy for access to Mt Maunganui and Taurangi city centre. Our room was very clean and well equipped. Would recommend without hesitation.
