Stayed for 3 nights, while the motel is a bit old it is still not a bad place to stay, the manager & staff keep the rooms nice and clean and the units have all you need for a short stay. The Eli greeted us warmly and were happy to assist in anyway possible. Our room was cleaned every day.... More

I agree totally with the review from SallishSea 101. Whereas she stayed at the Garden Court with me for 3 weeks, I continued on and was there for 2 months. I stayed in one of their studio suites, which was more than adequate for one person. I felt well cared for and very safe. Grace and Eli did everything they... More

My wife recently stayed in Tauranga, New Zealand and asked that I submit this review on her behalf. "I ended up, due to a friend's emergency, staying at the Garden Court Motel this past February. The motel offered a quiet oasis during a very difficult time. The small city of Tauranga may not be a travel destination, unless you are... More

This is an older motel which has been refurbished but we found the beds to be quite hard. The pool and spa needed a good clean as lots of bugs in them when we used them. Don't think we would stay here again as a bit far out of town.

The most friendlist motel that we ever visited. We booked 4 rooms, 17 people and we could not fault a thing with this motel. The owners are very helpful and arranged a free of charge gazebo for us to enjoy an outdoor seating area. The hotel was nice and clean. The rooms were equipped with heat pumps so accommodated for...

This is an older motel that has been refurbished recently. The room we had was 2 bedroom and we found it to be good value and close to the centre of the city. The host cleans the rooms personally and that ensures cleanliness. There is a great lawn area with a trampoline (if you have children) to run round on.... More

I went down to Tauranga for tournament week. I must admit it is a pretty old/rundown motel, however the rooms are more spacious than I have expected and it is stay-able. Yes there is a swimming pool, spa and trampoline also very close to the city centre. Sky is available, so as free wifi (even though it was not the... More

We had pre-arranged to a Arrive late at the motel. When we turned up the outside light had been left on and the room heater and electric blankets put on too. The rooms were nice and clean, with a fully equipped kitchen, sky TV and hot shower. Close to town. Very comfortable stay.

We needed a place to stay that was handy to the city as my father had just passed away. Although this is not an easy time for anyone, or any family, the manager went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. We had other family members travel up from Wellington as well.
