Needed to book this motel at short notice to deal with a matter in Tauranga. What made this stay easier was the understanding and kindness of the owners. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went out of their way to assist us. The owners live onsite and have an interest in the motel and their customers. The... More

The GOOD Excellent cleanliness, which goes a long way. Very good sized room. Lovely thermal spa. Closeness to shops, RSA and a liquor outlet. The disappointing, A soft bed akin to a water bed (remember them), bed linen akin to a cross between rustling leaves and sandpaper. The "eco soap" that took thirty five presses to get enough on the... More

This was a last minute booking as we had family in Tauranga Hospital and wanted something close by. It was on the same road and only 3-5 minutes away so was perfect. The owners were lovely and very accommodating. The pool is divine and very deep so great if you like a decent swim. Our only gripe was the sheets,... More

Located on a busy road, but never noticed the noise at all. Comfy bed, loads of space, great if on business and want to spread out a bit. Spotlessly clean which is always appreciated. Great water pressure in the shower. Supermarket pretty handy, as only a short drive away. The only negative was ants, and wish someone had told us... More

excellent motel spotlessly clean with a pool and spa. Just a couple of doors from the RSL club for good food and beer with a bottle shop next door and loads of take away restaurants a short walk away if you don't want to eat out

This motel is a great place to base yourself while you enjoy what the Bay of Plenty has to offer. It's a short walk to a number of good bars and restaurants in Greerton, and the swimming pool is the perfect way to cool down.
