Stayed here over New Years and it was perfect! City Suites in my opinion is situated in the perfect location! Only a 2 minute WALK to restaurants (also the clubs haha) and a 5 minute drive to The Mount! The room was great, had a comfy KING bed and everything was clean, tidy and modern. Loved that the car was secure underground and there was FREE Wi-fi. The shower/bathroom facilities were awesome and the POOL was great! The staff were super friendly and helpful and the room rate was very reasonable.

I've stayed in ALOT of hotels and this was by far my favourite stay :)

I have stayed here previously when its name was Piri Lodge or similar. Removations have been going on for sometime therefore had not returned. To save a long early morning drive to catch a charter boat to fish I decided to arrive in Tauranga the night before and put my head down, then up early to catch the boat which was just a few minutes away over the bridge from here. I decided to see what has been done to the establisment. The exterior seems to be the only real change. The room I was given seemed no different. Still its comfortable with one of those long baths that bubble. Flat screen tv would be the new addition. Small kitchenet with warning of to much cooking may set off smoke alarm. I understand the smoking policy, go out on your balcony, but Im affraid the thought of waking up other guests at 6am because I made some toast hummm. Fridge with some drinks and TWO milks. Fan and aircon. An excellent lock up garage for security. Short walk to waterfront and restaurants. Got good rate and if offered again would stay. Have always like this establishment.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you returned after our change from Puriri Park, and we are glad that you enjoyed our facilities. The cooking sign is to bring to your attention what could happen should the fire alarm go off, but we find that the majority of our guests do not have any problems. We hope to welcome you back again for your next fishing trip.

Accommodation was first class and staff/management very pleasant. Free underground secure parking was a bonus as was free wifi in the room. Was within walking distance of good choice of restaurants/coffee shops and easily accessible to the beaches at mount maunganui. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 22 was great. Had lovely balcony which got the sun from first thing in the morning until last t...

We stayed here, unfortunately just for one night. Shirley and Peter the Managers of the Hotel went out of their way for us. They hadn't been informed that when the booking was done through my husband's work, that we would be bringing two children with us. Shirley rearranged bookings and put us into a suite, and then phoned us later to arrange to make up the bed settee.
Apart from the lovely managers, the hotel was spotlessly clean. We had a lovely big balcony and cooking facilities so it suited us perfectly with children.
The Hotel is within walking distance to Tauranga waterfront where there was an ice rink, and plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. It was also so much quieter than Mount Maunganui.
We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and would definitely recommend them to anyone!

Stayed 2 nights late Nov 2012.

Situated on a main road in Tauranga opposite the park - but very quiet none the less. Good secure underground car parking, giving easy access to all the rooms.

Great location for accessing downtown Tauanga.

Rooms very well appointed and spotlessly maintained.

Highly recommended

Nice location in Tauranga. Absolutely spotlessly clean. The lady at reception (owner??/manager??) was just lovely. I would most definitely stay here again. My room didnt have a balcony but that was irrelevant to me on this occasion

Not my 1st choice in Tauranga as i would stay at the Hotel on Devonport, however from the TA reviews, i thought i would give it a go.

Studio was HUGE and lead out to a lovely courtyard. Comfy bed, Sky TV (with a movie channel), parking. Everything was perfect.
I really rate this hotel as couple who ran it were lovely and very helpful.

If you stay in Tauranga the two places mentioned provide the best service and great accommodation.

Room Tip: Studio is a great room and the other rooms are probably twice as big!
