I had one night at the Blue Haven Motel, turning up on spec as it was a spur of the moment trip. The owners were friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean with a comfy bed, free wi-fi and good cooking facilities. The location is handy to the beach and there is a supermarket just across the road. The price is pretty reasonable for The Mount. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Pauline and Craig for putting me up at the last minute.

We had a 3 night stay here ( my wife, myself and my daughter). Great location and pretty affordable for the mount. The one thing I noticed is that the owners are most proud of their motel and it’s reflected in the service and the cleanliness of the motel which is second to none. My only criticism would be the showers are pretty weak so I would hope this is on the list of improvements at some stage. I guess the question is would I go back again and stay... most definitely.

We booked Blue Haven Motel on line. My daughter and I travelled to Mount Maunganui for a 5th burthday celebration. We booked into the motel latee than intended but no problems. Great free WiFi - milk etc. The room and facilities were spotless. Our beds were warm and comfortable the bathroom and kitchen shining. My daughter loved the stove - an older Atlas and took a photo. It was quiet overnight and was all in all a very pleasant stay and reasonably priced. Thanks BLUE HAVEN.
