My wife and I stayed for two nights during a recent trip to Tauranga. We found our room to be very clean, comfortable and well appointed with everything we required for our short stay.

Stayed here for 4 nights recently. Room was immaculate, bed very comfortable with crisp linen,. Whole site spotless. Owners just so helpful and friendly. Excellent free wifi connection. Good rates. Could not ask for anything more. Sited on a main road but units must be well insulated as you didn't hear the road at all. Only 5 minutes to CBD.... More

everything we needed, plus a few nice extra touches,and very capable, friendly customer focused service. Great conference room too! Will certainly be back. Breakfast good value, ground coffee and a very comfortable bed. Particularly enjoyed the option of a bath in my room or use of the spar / small pool. Many thanks
