We arrived and stayed for one week. We were looking for jobs and a spot to rent. While we were here the owners couldn't have been more helpful. They even let us print our resumes off in the office. We appreciated everything they did for us. Very kind people and clean, spacious rooms. We will for sure stay here when we return someday.

We had stayed at two other places in the Mount and were not the happy with our stay, So we decided to try the Westhaven motel in Pilot Bay. So happy that we did! The motel has older features, but it is very clean and tidy. We stayed in room 6 on the beach side. The room has lots of room, full kitchen, separate bedroom (very comfortable bed), lounge room etc .Sky TV and Free internet are a bonus also. Wonderful views out the window,The sunsets are really beautiful to watch from your lounge. Also it is really close to shops and food outlets. Very friendly and helpful hosts. WE will be returning to this motel.

Excellent location, right on Pilot Bay, and 5 mins walk to the hot pools, surf beach, and shops/restaurants. Friendly and helpful staff at this family-run motel. The facilities in the room were really good, plenty of brand new and clean crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, jug, toaster, stove, oven and microwave. The sheets and bedding were crisp and clean, great mattresses and pillows (no saggy beds!). And, got a newspaper at my door every morning, that was a nice unexpected bonus. Looks like the motel has been recently renovated, and it shows. It is not high-tech and ultra-modern, but it is comfortable, everything works and it is super clean. Highly recommend this motel.

Room Tip: I had the ground-level front room that faces Pilot Bay. It was actually quite quiet. The walls are c...

Stayed here in November 2012, a beautiful spot over looking Pilot Bay where the cruise ships come and go. So beautiful to see the ships at night. We found the unit to be spacious and clean. A lot of work still to be done to refurbish - which was being undertaken on our visit. The cost per night for our upstairs unit was reasonable, but the views were priceless. A flat walk to the Mount and main shopping strip. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Don't expect latest decor - they are working on it, views priceless

Not the most up to date style or luxurious, but very resonably priced, clean and quiet which are the main things.

service was great, the reception was very friendly and welcoming.

Arrived in Mt.Maunganui needing somewhere to stay for one night.Tourist info(Site) gave us this address. It is definitely "no frills" but suited us. Needs a facelift BUT was clean, plenty of room, super shower and self catering facilities. In a superb location with lovely views and convenient for everything in the centre. Mt.Maunganui is a beautiful place and very popular with the Kiwis, we loved it! Should they decide to refurbish this Motel, then obviously there would be a huge rise in their charges. We had a good price and were more than satisfied!
