Sadly, only a one night stay - passing through on the way from Rotorua and wanted to break the journey. I say sadly because this has to be one of the best motels I have ever stayed in. The welcome from the owner could not be better and the room was immaculate - beautifully furnished, decorated and absolutely spotless. And... More

clean and tidy room and good price. we stayed for two nights and the host Wayne let me feel as at home. When we left in the morning he even wash the car for us because it was covered by dust in my ten days trip.

I enjoyed my one-night stay. The apartment was very spacious, clean and modern. Facilities were good. Staff were accommodating of my late arrival time. The owner was friendly and helpful with where to visit - recommending a great viewing spot that would otherwise have been missed and helped with my schedule.

Basic motel, huge rooms, super clean and tidy, full kitchen even in the cheap rooms, excellent and super friendly service. We were offered bikes and biked along the river into the city, that was great fun. minus: It is located on a main street and you can hear the traffic. It got quiet at night, though.

We stayed at Tourist Court Motel prior to Christmas with 2A + 2C as a midway stopover to our destination. The hosts were very welcoming and showed a genuine interest in their guests. The motel is on a busy road heading into the township and is your traditional style motel. The accommodation has been refurbished in recent times and has... More

Your comments are well worded as the road is a distraction for our guests. We hope the other aspects of your stay countered that noise. All of the motels on this road have similar problems. It is always a pleasure to have overseas visitors stay with us. More

We enjoyed our stay at this establishment.It is an older style motel from the outside but the inside is very nicely updated.The owner was very helpful and spent time giving us a map of great places to visit on our only afternoon in Whakatane. A good size room & kitchenette A little traffic noise only.

We had the pleasure to stay in this Motel for 3 nights in Oct 2013. It was a memorable stay. Place was neat and tidy, and the location is good. To top it all, Wayne & Karenne are friendly and accommodating. You can't ask for more !

Thanks for your positive review. It was a pleasure to meet the three of you and spend time comparing places we have travelled to. You certainly make the most of your time in countries you visit. Hope the golf was up to your expectations as the views make up for poor shots. We really enjoyed you meals and great company. More
