We had a fabulous weekend at Mission Belle. Right near the hub of the Mount everything was 'walkable' Unit was spacious, VERY clean and the beds were comfy. The units have a modern feel as they have just all been done up. Kitchen just the right size and parking was convenient. Rod and Judy, Nathan and Emma obviously Enjoy what... More

The unit was clean and modern but very small - small bathroom with shower only. Kitchen facilities included an electric kettle, microwave and a toaster on a small desk with no water/sink (use the bathroom). Budget facilities would be forgivable but price at $150 per night was not budget price and does not compare favourably. Centrally located

We stayed here over night when my mum and I were doing the Tri Chicks triathlon. Our first impression was great as we were greeted by an incredibly friendly fellow at the front desk. The room itself had everything we needed and was comfortable. On one side we looked out to the back of the Mount's strip of cafés and... More

Nat gave us a great welcome. Great room with views of the mount. Perfect location for walks round the mount, soaking at the hot salt water springs, and boogie boarding in the waves. Really near great restaurants. Definitely love to come back again.

We stayed for a night and found this to be a good spot. Very centrally located. The accommodation was clean and furnished to a high standard. Very friendly welcome on arrival. Also free wi-fi. We asked for a late check out and were able to stay until 11, which was much appreciated.

This motel is very handy to beaches, shopping and restaurants. The rooms come complete with everything needed to prepare food, if so desired. Someof the other guests were quite noisy but then left for dinner and it was quiet thereafter.

It's at the end of the dining strip and close to the beach. It's well located. Inside it's more tired that the outside suggests. Owners were friendly. We had been on trail bikes all day from Auckland so we were not fussy. It has a certain charm, and I guess it is a bit Hotel California...

We were nearing the end of a great visit to New Zealand. The trip included stops in Auckland, Rotorua, Taupo, Napier, Gisborne, Mt. Manuganui (Tauranga) and of course Hobbiton near Matamata. Our accommodations varied from 5 star hotel in Auckland to small roadside motels and boutique hotel. All were great except for the Mission Belle Motel. The one bedroom suite... More

We stayed at the Mission Belle for only one night about a year ago and will definitely be returning. The managers were amazing and very welcoming, the apartment clean and had a nice little view from our apartment of the cruise ship going out. I would most definitely recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mission Belle is a family run motel in Mount Maunganui (Mauao). The Belle's hosts are Cathy and Ray who came over from England in 2008 and fell in love with the place as soon as they saw it. One of their favourite countries in the world is Spain and because it reminded them so much of the spanish buildings they were used on the coast it seemed to be the perfect scenario - a little piece of Spain in New Zealand - what more could they want??!! Unfortunately it wasn't available for them to own at that time but as soon as it came on the market, they snapped it up! They've been in the motel since December 2011 and have so far loved every minute of it. There is a sizable barbeque area and various seating areas dotted around the property, with or without shade and they have improved on the landscaping. The rooms were originally decorated with a "spanish' feel about them (hence the name) and now Cathy and Ray feel that updating the rooms is high on the agenda of plans that they have for the place. It is ideally located, close to all amenities that the Mount has to offer - fantastic cafes, amazing restaurants, and the beautiful stores that are all very appealing. With only a couple of minutes walk to the quiet Pilot Bay beach and a five minute walk to the main beach, there really is no need of a pool! Having said that, the Hot Pools are at the base of Mauao and are easily accessible with a ten to fifteen minute walk from the Belle. A beautiful walk around Mauao where you can take in some fantastic sights, or a more energetic or if preferred, a slow climb up to the summit will be an effort well rewarded with the magnificent views over the town and the sights of Tauranga. ... more   less
