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

Very clean and quiet. Good comfortable bed. we only stayed one night but would recommend a longer stay here . Very convenient location close to town and the hospital. The pool is a bonus especially with kids. Friendly and helpful hosts.

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

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.
