“Our Local Motel Every Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Every year me and my partner go to Tauranga from Auckland for a break to escape work, uni, troubles and to just relax and forget everything!

We've been everywhere, but nowhere could quite compare to this, not only do we receive genuine service, the room is clean (always), and I have not ever encountered a single problem.

We are about to go back and stay there again soon, it's our local, we must admit.

I recommend the spa room, has kitchen, bathroom and toilet, and large bed and desk, just amazing.

I highly highly highly recommend this place.

Hi Rachael,
Thanks for your positive comments - we will try to live up to your expectations again this year.
We look forward to hosting you and your partner. We have been truly spoilt with many of our guests coming back again and again to stay with us, so to host you again will be a privilege. That's the biggest compliment we can have - to have a repeat guest. We have also "discovered" two new dining experiences we can recommend when you arrive. We look forward to hosting you soon,
kind regards
Athol & Lorraine

We spent 3 nights here over Easter and found the hosts to be extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing was an issue. They even drove us into the city centre on our first night to show us the best restaurants etc. The room was spacious, clean and the bonus being able to watch tv from the spa! We would certainly recommend Macy's and not hesitate to return.

Hi there, So glad you enjoyed your stay here and enjoyed our Queen Studio spa unit. they are very popular amongst our regular corporate and leisure travellers. We do appreciate your positive comments about being hosted at Macy's. We are passionate about the Bay of Plenty and Tauranga and so we do try to show and tell people about all the good and positive places of interest and of course where some of the best "food experiences" are as well. We hope we have the privilege of hosting you again in Tauranga when you next visit us. regards Athol & Lorraine

We booked on the internet for Easter weekend in Tauranga. Never been to the city before, so we did not know beforehand if we would be in a good area or not. We were delighted, lovely clean room, great big spa bath and we were made to feel most welcome.We were only a few minutes from town and all the amenities, We will definitely be staying here again when we go to Tauranga. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. Jo Johnston

Room Tip: Loved the room with the spa bath

Hi Jo,
Thanks for staying with us on Easter weekend. Tauranga is always busy as for two reasons, the long weekend and because it hosts the Annual National Jazz Festival. There is such a lovely carnival atmosphere in town. Glad your experience with us was comfortable and seeing it was your first time in Tauranga we hope to see you back again to enjoy the beaches, walks and restaurants. kind regards, Athol & Lorraine

Our room was up a small flight of stairs - we were given 2 nights when we had to stay unexpectedly and are very grateful to the hosts. The room was sunny, quiet and very clean.The spa bath was excellent value - good pressure and quickly run - priced customer friendly too.
The 2 nights were great when we had only booked for one - at Easter time which is very busy.
Thankyou Macy's!

Room Tip: The corner suite was perfect for two - close to shops and eating.

We are glad you enjoyed your Easter weekend stay with us. The Natn'l Jazz Festival is on every Easter and is a real drawcard with local and Intnl musicians - Tauranga is the place to be with some free streetside music stages and all auditoriums usually booked out for the more ardent music lovers. All our units have single or double spa baths which make us very popular with visiting guests. Thanks for your positive comments on the cleanliness of the room and the friendliness of the staff. We have developed a team culture here to look after guests and so happy to know that is working and that it's evident to guests. I will pass on your thanks to the staff. We hope to host you again next Jazz Festival. regards Athol & Lorraine

We enjoyed our stay. The rooms were spacious and beautifully clean and the staff friendly and helpful. I left some earrings behind and they went the extra mile in discovering and returning these to me. So many thanks.

This motel has very good facilities including free WiFi and kitchenette. Towels to use at the beach are also provided - all you have to do is ask. Speaking of which, the best beach is at Mt Manganui, only about a 10 minute trip. The staff were extremely helpful. The only hint is that 11th Avenue can get noisy (we were there on a Friday and Saturday night (the latter noisier than the former), although I slept through it - my wife who is a light sleeper didn't. This motel is highly recommended and we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room off 11th Avenue

Hi mjb, Thank you for staying at Macy's and that you found the staff helpful. I will pass on your comments to the team. We provide the swimming towels for our pool and they are available for use to the beach and yes you are right the best beaches are just across the harbour in Mou8nt Maungaui but it does stretch all the way to Papamoa Beach with numerous swimming spots in between. For light sleepers we do recommend rooms away from the road and the roadside rooms do have double glazing as a noise buffer. While sometimes there can be traffic noise there will however some nights it will be as peaceful as anything. If you are are ever back in Tauranga we look forward to hosting you again, kind regards Athol & Lorraine

Our host Athol was very welcoming, helpful, and courteous. We arrived in Tauranga rather late, so we were anxious to get to our accommodations, stay out of our vehicle, and enjoy a relaxing evening. Although Athol suggested a tempting tapas bar across town, we chose to walk to a fast-food joint for a quick meal, then relax in our quite adequate room to check emails and the news of the day with the free wi-fi. Our accommodations were clean, beds were very comfortable and the space perfectly adequate for our one-night stay. We Americans (at least these 2 Americans from Boise, Idaho) love free wi-fi and are especially thankful for the coffee fixins' and milk and the beautiful hydrangeas outside our back door!
