Our flight got cancelled and we didn't get into Tauranga until 7.30pm, a bit challenging when travelling with a 18 month old. Thankfully the motel owner was very kind and let my sister prepare a portacot prior to our arrival, so we could transfer our sleeping toddler from the rental car to the bedroom easily. A huge help :) The... More

The staff are super friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and immaculately clean. There was everything we needed. The shower was super relaxing with high pressure and the beds were by far the comfiest we experienced on our 2 week Nz trip. It was a great stay and I'd definately be back again.

Only stayed one night. Very comfortable unit. Clean, and had everything we needed. Arrived back late evening and found curtains pulled and lights on, making for a warm welcome. Cooked breakfast was delicious. Hosts very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to others as well. Thanks for everything. Anne, Kevin and Geoff.

Stayed here the other night whilst visiting family in Tauranga. The room was spotless, the bed comfy and the hosts, Gladys and Kelvin, were most helpful with nothing being a problem.Ordered the full cooked breakfast, and was a good size feed for big eaters and cooked beautifully.
