Stayed here for 2 nights and the facilities were fantastic. Jan made us feel most welcome the instant we got here. This is the place to stay with Hobbiton only 30 minutes drive away, a drive with lots of interest. Morrinsville is interesting in itself with its colourful cows on each corner and the friendliest of people. So glad we...

Stayed here for one night after attending a wedding. We had a studio unit. The room was modern, comfortable and cosy. Tidy and clean. Lots of amenities in our room; couch, dining table, kitchen with elements, single arm chair. Spacious and clean bathroom! Staff were very friendly and approachable. Would stay here again. $130 for the night - very reasonable...

Took two rooms early in the New Year. Presentation of the rooms was outstanding, and the layout of the space well organised. Everything worked. Very clean, very comfortable. In retrospect we would have used this as a base for our trips to Hobbiton and the Glow Worm caves.

My wife and I were astonished to find out that this motel was not brand new. It is immaculate. In our opinion it rivals the best hotels in Tauranga and surpases the majority. We were only sorry that we could stay for only one night. The hosts, including Brie are welcoming and attentive. They have really set the bar as...

Booked a number of rooms for a wedding group. Numerous types of options from disability friendly to family suites. Rooms looked brand new and were spotlessly clean. Owners friendly and accommodating. Suggest you deal directly with the hotel rather than a third party as this allows greater flexibility if plans change. Easy walking distance to great cafes and restaurants in...

Stayed here for 1 night recently for business. Located on the main street, with most amenities within walking distance. Staff are friendly and very helpful, even taking you personally to your room after checking in. The room was one of the cleanest rooms I have stayed in for a long time and included a small kitchen area (microwave, hot plate...

The owners welcomed us and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The rooms were beautifully furnished and we had everything we needed.
