A friendly welcome by the owner. The motel was clean, comfortable and had everything we required for the night's stay.We had a spa bath in the bathroom.We appreciated the plunger coffee. Good value for the quality of the motel.

We were very warmly greeted, and shown to our clean, fresh, comfortable room. Breakfast was well worth the $15, and perfect in every way. The ground coffee and plunger were a welcome touch. Attention to detail gets me their loyalty, and we will be back again, and hope more people find this precious gem.

Wasn't expecting too much, just a standard motel, but this was definitely better then I had hoped. It was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the reception was very welcoming and helpful. There was good space and a nice kitchen. Would stay again.

My daughter in law and I stayed at the Comfort Inn for one night in June. Reception was friendly and and efficient. The rooms were spacious and very clean. We had two rooms one with a super king bed and the other with a queen. A good place to stay. Conveniently located well worth a visit.

Our company put us into this charming motel whilst we were working for a plant shutdown away from home, the rooms were immaculate spacious and well equiped.

The Staff were lovely. The Room was lovely. The only drawback was the bed was a little hard for our liking and the proximity to a main rd and hospital was a bit noisy during the night. There was a lot of traffic noise including emergency vehicles. I can't fault the actual room itself, good quality surrounds.

Stayed here one night as just somewhere to rest my head for a business meeting in Tauranga. My room was fantastic, plenty of room downstairs to relax and work on my laptop (both couch and study desk), and the bedroom was upstairs, very comfortable.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are pleased you enjoyed the mezzanine unit. Guests either love them or hate them. Having a couch in the studio is definately an advantage so is having a tv upstairs and downstairs. We look forward to having you stay again when you are back in Tauranga for work or pleasure.
