We spent 2 days here in a double room with kitchenette and private bathroom. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. The owner was very helpful. Our room was the furthest from the road. There was no road noise even though it was the main thoroughfare. There was also a laundry, clothesline, outdoor facilities and spa. Not far from the city...

Motel was clean and well appointed with plenty of room to move. Staff were friendly and helpful for travellers. We had a good nights sleep and enjoyed dinner at a nearby Fishing club. Having car parked at door was very handy due to rain.

Great location - handy to city centre. Spacious, clean, comfortable units. Great if travelling with others as has a lovely outdoor area for getting together. Excellent, accomodating owner. Have stayed multiple times and recommend as value for money.

Spent two nights and would have liked to have stayed longer. Our Studio Unit was quiet, spacious and spotless. Laundry facilities first class. Plenty of off street parking and close to amenities. Would recommend this Motel to anyone who likes high standards. Friendly and helpful owner/manager.

Needed a place to stay for the night after an unexpected delay in whakatane. This place was easy to find, very nice owner/manager. Excellent quality linen and very clean. Everything was clean and tidy - for a last minute cheap find this was ideal!

Clean and tidy. Being light sleepers we found the road noise difficult. Good rates. Close to town. Supermarket only 5 minute drive. Nice too some of the dated features have been updated. We would stay again but only if we could get a room further back from the road.

We had a 2 bedroom unit. Facilities were clean and tidy. We didn't really use the kitchen but it was roomy. Friendly and helpful host. Nice outdoor seating area, clothes lines available. Possible negatives: no air conditioning, and it was very hot when we were there- although there was a pedestal fan (only 1 though), and the road was quite...

We were on a quick overnight trip along the East coast but we had our dog with us. No problem with Tourist Court. Being just down the road from the river walk meant there was nearby exercise for us and the dog. The unit was comfortable with TV and a super heater. We ate at nearby Kopeo where there were...

Stayed one night in a two bedroom room. Rooms very clean, good kitchen layout that had everything that you would need even salt & pepper. We were upstairs and had a small table & chairs outside our room. It is not close to the town centre, the owners here are very helpful and friendly. Would stay again
