Stayed there twice now and I have not been disappointed. I always try to give a place a second visit just in case I have a off day but no problems what so ever. My second stay was in a different room and everything was what I expected from my first visit, good high standards set at all times. The... More

This motel was very spacious, clean and well equipped. The swimming pool was a welcome relief to the heat and was enjoyed by a few members of our team. Chris went above and... More

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.
