Thank you for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure to have you again. Look out also for our Winter Special - a studio and a meal at Amphora Restaurant combined - Great savings and a relaxing weekend too to fight the winter blues...

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Harbour City Motor Inn. Pascale was very welcoming and friendly. The location, in the central city, while being close to good restaurants etc, is still quiet. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We would definitely stay here again.

This little Hotel is right in centre of town but not noisy and a short stroll to all the eateries in town and the local shops. It was a pleasure to stay, everything near new and we travelled with our 2 grandchildren who had their own room. Very friendly helpful Managers who gave us a great deal and we will be back next time we are in NZ.

Room Tip: i think all the rooms are good. Ground level and 1 level up.

Stayed at Harbour City Motor Inn for the first time on the weekend of 25April 2014. Wow !!! We were greeted by Pascale, she is just fabulous, warm and welcoming greeting, actually took us to our room,and explained what was what with everything. The rooms are very very clean and most inviting For me having nice china crockery, nice glass wear and knives that actually cut,was lovely Their attention to detail shows . A nice short stroll to some of Tauranga's lovely restaurants etc. Great central location.We really loved our stay there,Pascale really goes the Extra MILE to ensure her guest 's stay is "Simply The Best." Definitely our choice of motel when we visit Tauranga next.Most definitely recommended. !!!! Ann D.

I have stayed at the Harbour City Motor Inn many times. Pascale is a fabulous host and certainly goes the extra mile to ensure my stay is comforable and enjoyable. The rooms are very clean and inviting. It is only a short distance to a variety of beautiful restaurants and if you wish to stay in, there is a delivery service with charge back - fantastic if you've had a long day!

Room Tip: If you are travelling with others - let Pascale know as she will provide a "family" room w...

Good location to walk to restaurants on the harbour. We even found an Indian restaurant that surprised my husband with birthday candles in his naan bread. The owner is on-site. The pride of ownership shows in the cleanliness and attention to detail.
