“Brillant find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

A great experience from time of reservation to checking out. A great family motel, modern, full free SKY TV, shampoos etc, brillant shower, free WIFI, 15 minutes walk to supermarket, quiet even though on main street, nice swimming pool area AND boxed tissues in every room.

We have stayed at the Colonial Court Motel a few of times and each time we return they have upgraded/updated/improved the rooms. The quality of the rooms is more than you might expect - we had a large flat screen TV and our own Sky decoder with tons of channels as well as wired and wireless broadband internet connection, at no extra cost.

But even more important that this is the service. Kris and Tracy were always attentive and knowledgeable and happy to help with whatever request we had. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable and we stayed in a unit with living room/kitchen plus 2 bedrooms, which was perfect for our family with 2 children.

Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable stay. This will always be my first choice of places to stay when I visit Tauranga.

We arrived very late in the evening after nearly 24 hours of traveliing. Kris met us and got us straight into our rooms with minimal hastle or fuss. He then kindly arranged some food to be delivered which by now was close to midnight and kindly threw in a few beers -priceless !

The kind of hospitality offered is very very rare and it is what sets this motel apart from all the others I have stayed in. We stayed 1 night and then came back for an further 3 nights later in the week after the positive experice we had.

Kris was a wealth of information on things to do and very helpful. The rooms are spacious , comfortable and very clean with all the amenities one needs should you wish to dine in. The wiffi is fast and free so an added bonus.

I highly recommend this motel and will be coming back.

I have stayed at other hotels in Tauranga and have to say that this is by far the best with excellent hospitality, a really good atmosphere and very clean, well presented and maintained rooms. I would definately recommend a stay here and would not hesitate to come back should I return to Tauranga.

This was a very comfortable and well-run motel. The cancellation policy is a bit stiff (you have to give 2 weeks' notice for a refund) but otherwise we couldn't fault it. Everything was extremely clean and well maintained and the overall impression was smart and businesslike. Would thoroughly recommend if staying in Tauranga though you do need to drive rather than walk into town.
