Booked last minute coming from Matamata for a night. Lovely host blocked an extra night for us as we weren't sure of our plans. Tariff was so reasonable, we were a little dubious. Arrived to friendly host and wonderful accommodation. Studio was spacious, spotless, had everything we needed and a back door leading out to a grassed garden area and... More

We have just returned from our second stay at the Comfort Inn. This is a lovely place to stay for families. Our one bedroom unit was perfect for our needs and extremely clean. The kitchenette was well equiped with a decent sized fridge. The beds were comfortable with good quality linen and firm mattresses which we like. The bathroom included... More

We stayed for one night only after Christmas. We had a one bedroom unit which was huge. Loved the bathroom, very nicely laid out. The pool after a long hot day was a fabulous way to relax. The motel is only a short drive away from The Strand, which was great.

This place is a little gem! From the pictures the decor looks a tad dated, and it is, but they more than make up for it with how clean and well keep it is! Our room was immaculate and had everything a couple or family would need (kitchenette, bathtub, lots of room, BBQ and garden area). We stayed two nights... More

Thank you for your lovely review of your stay with us. We have been here less than two years and are gradually making improvements to all of the units. We would love to be able to install air-conditioning units into all of our units to enable guests to be able to keep cool on these hot Tauranga nights. At the... More

Came off the road without a booking. Nice place, no fuss, easy to talk with and helpful owners and staff. parking was tight so they gave another. Problem with internet connection (the providers fault really) so they fixed it.

Stayed there for about 3 days. It was my first time in Tauranga coming from the Pacific Islands for work, good service and clean facilities...room etc. The management and staff on site were very helpful. Safe and pretty quiet at all times. I recommend this location for anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Tauranga.

We only stayed one night and booked at the last minute but I thought it deserved a good review. The staff were lovely, and we got the room stress free. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds. Thank you Academy on Cameron :) We will definitely come back if we're ever in Tauranga again. From Rachel & John - Sydney,... More

Thank you for your lovely review of your stay with us recently. Be sure to book early to ensure a unit is available - we would not want you to be disappointed by not being able to get in here when next you are over from Australia. Gladys & Kelvin More

Great stay for two nights over new year. Very well equipped apartments with cute bbq's and sun spots out the back. Great little heated pool with a hot tub for added satisfaction. Kids had a great time and only ten mins away from main centres and beach!

A clean and tidy motel but the unit we had was very small and narrow. We had a studio with a mezzanine floor and was very hot at night in the upstairs bedroom. We opened the window but then had a lot of road noise as the motel is on a busy corner. Staff were friendly. We have stayed here... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We are sorry you didn't enjoy the mezannine unit which had a couch and two televisions. When you next book, please state that you do not want one of these units if we have an executive studio available. We look forward to your next stay... More
