“Comfortable, Clean and Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

I have been patronizing this motel exclusively when I travel to Mount Maunganui from my home overseas for around 30 years. I do this solely because I know that I am going to get reasonably priced accommodation in spotlessly clean units and be well treated by the management. This motel is very well located being close to beaches and shops- there is a New World supermarket across the road for self-caterers yet there are restaurants/ cafes just a short walk up the road. Whilst ever the Blue Haven continues to provide this level of service, cleanliness and comfort, I would look nowhere else. Do yourselves a favor! Paul B

I recently stayed here and feel this is a great 3 star motel that is very hard to beat. It was very clean and I found the new bed linen to be very comfortable. The owners are absolutely fantastic and I fell in love with the dog "Moxy".

I suggest anyone who is looking for a cost effective stay at the Mount, don't bother looking anywhere else.

This motel is great value. It is also spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The buildings are very old but the owners have done a good job of brightening it up with white paint and nice linen. The new owners have said they will continue the modernisation started by the previous owners.
