Great place in the heart of Tauranga

The staff are friendly and welcoming and it's like a second home

Close walking distance to town and the have secure offst parking

There is cheaper accomodation nearby however you pay for what you get and this place is pretty neat

Staying here was the perfect hotel experience. We paid a three star price by booking online a few days before our stay, but we got 5 star quality. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was immaculate and spacious. The welcome drink on arrival was a very nice touch and we got a great breakfast bought to our room (included in the room rate). While there is no restaurant, there is a club associated with the hotel that you have direct access to. The views are stunning and its a lovely space. Close proximity to everything in Tauranga means you can walk everywhere in the central city. I totally recommend the sushi across the road from the hotel too, you wont find anything better anywhere-even in Japan!

We know this hotel very well and stay here often on weekend or night getaways. My husband was leaving the next day from Tauranga Airport until late December. I wanted a room with a bathtub and was excited to get to the hotel after a long drive. When we got to our room there wasn't a bathtub so I went to the front desk. The young woman who checked in my husband was very inexperienced and wasn't going to give us a room with a tub, however a more experienced person stepped up and said she could move us at a cost of $30 extra dollars. I declined to pay $30 for a bath....she stepped up and made me a happy guest and changed us for no extra cost. 'THAT HOTELIERS IS CUSTOMER SERVICE' Once again our favorite hotel has succeeded in giving us a wonderful stay. We are loyal customers and we will come back again. Thank you Hotel on Devonport!

Room Tip: If you want to have a bath then remember to ask if the room has a tub because I assumed all of the s...

The hotel is modern and located right in the middle of the high street, a short walk from the many restaurants in the area.

The room was spacious and clean, the bed very comfy.

The service was quick, efficient and with a big smile.

Although we didn't have breakfast here the option is offered (the hotel has no restaurant).

Room Tip: There is a railtrack in the side of the hotel facing the sea, I don't know how inconveneint this...

The Hotel on Devonport is very well located for a short stay right in the main town centre . The staff are excellent from the front desk right through to the maids. We stayed in a suite which had a separate bedroom and lounge area. We also viewed the Executive rooms which were also spacious. Breakfast is by room service but is quite adequate with range available. Security car parking right beside the entrance to the lift which makes access simple.The welcome glass of wine is a nice touch.The only down sides are that none of the rooms have great views of the water and there is no WiFi only cable internet and this is on a charge for use basis.Overall a good place to base yourself for a visit to Tauranga.

Room Tip: The executive rooms are spacious with a King size bed but if you want a seperate bedroom then choose...

We came upon this hotel while we were looking for another one. On a hunch we stopped in and inquired about availability. Once we saw the room and the price we decided to stay. The receptionists were wonderful. Pauline and her co-worker helped us tremendously with our travel plans etc. The hotel is spotless. The location is great. The room was extremely conformtable with all high-end details. I highly recommend this hotel if you are traveling in New Zealand.

Room Tip: We upgraded to a partial water view and it was worth it.

Great location, and the rooms are nicely appointed, clean, and comfortable. Free, secure parking in the garage is a nice bonus. 10am check out is a bit harsh, but seems to be the NZ norm these days. We were only able to stay for one night but would have loved to stay longer.
