Could not fault the Colonial Lodge Motor Inn. Being a group of 6, we really struggled to find somewhere to stay. Kris really looked after us and went above and beyond! We had a 3 bedroom unit which was immaculate and so comfortable! The local restaurant/cafe recommendations were very appreciated and honestly some of the best food we've ever eaten! When we come back to Tauranga, we will definitely look to book here. Thank you so much for your great hospitality!

Booked here based on previous reviews and was not disappointed, it was excellent. From the warm welcome on arrival by Kris, then being shown to our room and things like the remotes explained, to having the offer to store our bikes -our stay began perfect. The room was spacious, immaculately clean, all products were eco friendly including the complimentary can of water, Air conditioning in room was very efficient which was good, and large bathroom with shower that had good pressure. A bonus extra were two drying racks which were great for washing. Grounds are immaculate and we had a lovely swim in the pool which was a good temperature, clean and in a nice fenced area with a BBQ and plenty of outdoor furniture. We were really pleased with this motel and highly recommend it.

Great room with all the facilities I needed for my stay and more, even a well stocked little kitchen area. There was a comfortable bed, the owner Chris was fantastic and went above and beyond ensuring I was comfortable and had all the information I needed, even giving me fresh avacados from the tree which was in fruit. Close to the centre of tauranga and an easy drive to the beach.

This must be our third or fourth stay at Colonial Court Motel 😘. Excellent location and handy for visiting all sites in Tauranga and around. Owner Kris is helpful and always communicates promptly. We managed to book the One-bedroom premium unit in our recent two stays. The unit is spacious, homely, and cosy. Also, this unit’s corner location adds extra privacy to our stay. As long as Kris stays in charge, we will keep Colonial Court Motel as our Tauranga home 🏡.

This place is amazing! Chris and the team are super friendly and go the extra mile to look after their guests. The room was very clean and spacious and came with little extras like cotton tips which was a nice surprise and many other. Great location and facilities. The moment we arrived we knew we picked the right place. The vibes were great and I could feel that Chris took pride in delivering a service and experience to remember. The AC worked very well and the room was spotless and setup nicely. The spa worked perfectly. The TV and Sky box had no issues. They also have DVD collection to choose from. Everything you would need was there. There were so many things that could go wrong when you try out a new place but this was not the case at Colonial Court Motor Inn... I have absolutely no complaints and wished I stayed longer. I will definitely be coming back here and can’t wait! Keep up the amazing work team.
