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 stayed in the 1bdroom apartment. Came to whakatane for a concert at war memorial which is just a walk away from the motel (15min) as is macdonalds & KFC 👍🏼. Friendly host, affordable rates, fast wifi, nice BBQ area, clean rooms, comfortable beds, kitchenette, spacious rooms, great shower and cool little outside table for your room. Would definitely stay...

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

We only stayed for one night but it was wonderful. Our Labrador was travelling with us so we needed a pet friendly motel. Tourist Court was very obliging. Such a clean and tidy room. We also had a BIG trailer we were towing. Wayne was very helpful in giving us the best and safest spot to park it.

the owners went out of their way to provide extra bedding for an unexpected 4 year old. The place was clean and service was very good. We got good access to the internet at a good rate. We checked in latish but they were there to met us.

I ended up staying for 2.5 weeks. The motel managers did all they could to make my stay in the town as enjoyable as possible eg I did not know how long my stay would be & they shuffled bookings so I did not have to shift rooms. The managers repeatedly went beyond the point of duty in helpful ways....

Stayed 1 night with my mum and brother. The owners were really friendly and helpful and when we needed the room re configured, it wasn't a problem. The unit was really, really clean and had everything you needed. It was good value for money 😀 .
