Hotel on Devonport
Ranked #3 of 57 Hotels in Tauranga
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Have stayed at this hotel a couple of times when in Tauranga. We are in our 30s and find this a much better location to base ourselves rather than Mount Muanganui (The Mount) as there is more to do in Tauranga, and the restaurants are better. The service is great, we got a room with a balcony this time that looked over the main street but could see the sea from the corner of the balcony. Wonderfully quiet, well apointed rooms, large showers and great location. Love love love it. Will continue to be our first choice when staying in Tauranga.

We stayed in a 8 floor executive king room with spa. Excellent decor, comfy bed, good secure parking undercover, great staff and top location. Its right in the heart of Tauranga with shops at the door and top resaurants just a gentle stroll down to the strand. The rooms do have a partial water view from small balcony. Bathroom is big and spa a welcome, yes they had robes! a travellers retreat. I would highly recommend this hotel that will not break the bank. The only criticism is that we were awoken by the nearby train line a couple of times. Overall 9/10

Room Tip: Executive rooms on level 8 had spas and balcony

This hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of town - easy walking access to everything. A secure carpark too.
On arrival you receive a glass of bubbles and a bag of chippies - nice touch.
There is a large bowl of apples in hotel foyer for you to help yourself - nice after walking around on way back to your room.
Room large and spacious, clean and tidy.
Staff always friendly and helpful.
Possibly could do with having another lift.
Will be back.

We were blown away by this lovely spot. Reasonable rates (compared to some of the dubious local motel offerings where we have stayed before), beautifully presented rooms, super comfy beds with choice of pillow, lovely little extras, friendly staff and yummy breakfast! Location is perfect right amongst the shops and a 2 minute walk from a variety of restaurants, bars and cafes. We only wish we were staying longer than one night! Highly recommended.

Room Tip: we had city view but could still see the harbour - didnt find train noise a problem and I am a light...

Check in was simple, friendly and we were even able to check in an hour early. We were also treated to welcome drinks, which was a lovely surprise and a nice touch! Room was gorgeous, very clean, spacious and felt very homely. The bed was very comfortable & huge! Loved the fact that the room not only had a heat pump/air conditioner but also had a HRV system installed! Gorgeous bath built for two, perfect for a romantic retreat, especially with the added spa function. Nothing was too much trouble for the the staff, from the maids to the hotel receptionists all did a great job. The hotel is also very handy for all facilities.

This is an excellent boutique hotel, in an excellent location. The room was clean, comfortable and had the wow factor. Staff very friendly and efficient and many bars and restaurants are close to hand. We had the full breakfast delivered promptly to our room in the morning. Overall a great experience.

Just back from a trip to NZ. We stayed in alot of places over the past few weeks (business) and this is was right up there great location to all the restraunts etc and having a secure underground free car park was fantastic. The rooms were well appointed clean and quiet. Little touch's like the bowl of apples for the guests....
