We found our unit very comfortable. It had everything we needed. The bed was very comfy. Comfortable chairs to sit in to relax or watch TV. There was a laundry room if we needed to use one. A nice swimming pool and spa. The owners were very friendly.

With constant travel for business (almost 4 nights a week), where I stay needs to be clean and comfortable. I value a good nights sleep, the ability to cook my own meals, and shower with great water pressure! Comfort Inn Academy provides all this and more. Gladis and Kelvin are friendly and helpful, and go the extra mile to ensure... More

Great beds, fantastic shower and water pressure. Clean and Spacious room .Location close to Tauranga boys collage and close to Tauranga hospital area. Owner was friendly on arrival. At check in asked if we would like free news paper and wifi. Wifi works well. Little road noise but you are on the main road.

We were out road-tripping arriving up from Taupo and came upon this little gem of a place. We enjoyed our overnight stay very much. A wee way out from the main shopping centre, but the bus stop is handy if you have no car. The room was spic and span and very welcoming! The walk-in shower suited my arthritic knees... More

Enjoyed my stay very much. The room we got was perfect for my disability. I couldn't fault it. It's very hard to find somewhere that suits my needs but this was it. I would jump at the chance to stay there again.

We stayed at the Academy Inn for just one night. There were two couples so it was good economically to have us all staying in a two bedroom apartment. The room looked like it needed to be refurbished as I believe that most of the rest of the Inn had been. It was still fine and comfortable for what we... More

I spent two nights here at the Comfort Inn Academy, and it was perfect. It's a bit far from the city centre, but the bus stop is just across the street. The place was extremely clean, the owners Kelvin and Gladys are very helpful, and it had everything I needed. There's no air conditioning, which I thought would be a... More

We needed a room that accommodated two couples. The one bedroom apartment had two separate rooms with excellent King/queen beds in each with very good facilities to be self contained. The rooms were well set up and spotless. Gladys was also very accomodating and we will definitely return. Thank you for a lovely stay.
