I travel New Zealand for work and have stayed in Tauranga many times. The Colonial Court motel has, by far, the best service of any of the New Zealand hotels or motels I've stayed at. Excellent value for money. Reliably high standards.

We found the motel on TripAdvisor and the reviews were excellent and we were not disappointed. Our room was spacious and very clean. The hosts were great are very obliging. Will definitely be back and we fully recommend to fellow travellers.

After our last Motel with no air con or ceiling fans this was a huge improvement. A lovely spacious studio unit with a large bathroom & a bath was another big hit. Clean, comfortable and good location. Chris was a great host, will recommend to others!

After a long drive in rain we decided to stop the night in Tauraunga, cold called to see if there was a vacancy and were greeted and treated like family. Thank you for the hospitality and the fantastic beds and shower. #1 on our list of places to stay. Hopefully we can return one day.

Our school Year 8 netball team stayed here for the Aims tournament last week. All I can say is that it was brilliant. Chris, the host couldn't do more for us. He certainly bent over backwards with the service. He even washed the girls' netball uniforms every night!! Also provided a fresh set of towels for them daily for the... More

After I returned from the... More

Two of us stayed for work and we're just blown away by the hosts and service. Really impressed, with the above and beyond attitude and can see why this place has such great reviews. Will be back for sure.

friendly helpful staff, from my first inquiry. They came to my aid when the TV malfunctioned- just the aerial wire but they were obliging and attentive to my little problem. the rooms were roomy and clean. I would stay here again
