The place was a single bedroom unit with a spacious bathroom, lounge and bedroom. It was very clean and was the little details that made it very thoughtful, and an extremely enjoyable stay. The whole place was very soundproof, I felt right at home. My partner and I were impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I recently used the Colonial Court Motor Inn as a venue for conducting business meetings with clients. The 2 bedroom house with meeting room facilities was perfect for our needs as my colleague and I also used it for our overnight accommodation. The owner was very accommodating and the facilities were spotless

My partner was appointed this hotel to stay in while in Tauranga for work and we found it to be very pleasant. While it doesn't boast a view or near by attractions, it certainly makes up for these with great customer service and contemporary rooms. Our room was spacious and the bed was comfortable, totally free WiFi, daily housekeeping service,... More
