We had a lovely warm welcome when we arrived at Harbour City and were given lots of information about the area. The room we had was on the ground floor and it was excellent, very clean and well equipped - even a jacuzzi bath. It is only a couple of minutes walk to the shops, bars and restaurants and not far from the highway for those wishing to venture further afield. We were told that Mount Manganui was a must place to visit and it did not disappoint, it is beautiful.

We were very impressed with the standard and quality at this motel. The hosts were very friendly and really went that extra mile. The room was very clean and well furnished and the central location meant that it was easy to walk to the restaurants and the shops. Very good value too.

Have just arrived home after a stay at this motel, we were there for 12 nights and cannot find any faults with it. In a great location just a few minutes walk away from all the cafes restaurants and shops. All the management are so helpful and friendly. Clean towels evey day, with maid service. My husband myself and adult son stayed in a one bed apartment, it had everything that we needed, including lots of space.
Would certainly recommend a stay here.Thankyou. The Daniels Family

I stayed here with my partner for a couple of days. The rooms are quite spacious tidy and and comfortable. The motel is also very convenient close to the shops and cafe's. It can be a bit noisy at night though which you can expect in the middle of the city.
