I was recommended this hotel in Tauranga for its fantastic position close to town centre, and it could not have been more perfectly positioned - great restaurants within walking distance, room wth a view of the water and Mount, spacious spa bath, flat screen TV, and excellent staff. The decor is understated and elegant. Perfect attention to detail.Lovely shopping in the vicinity. Would recommend it highly.

Hotel is right in the main street of Tauranga but is very quiet. I was there for business and could walk everywhere. Very secure hotel with small lobby at the front entrance and swipe card car garage at the rear. Staff were welcoming and friendly and their service throughout my 2 day staff was excellent. Room was very modern with lovely bathroom, consisting of wash basin, toilet and shower. Plenty of fresh thick towels, soaps, shampoos etc were provided and bathroom was immaculately clean. Main room had a couch, kingsize bed (with lovely linen), built in desk area with internet access, chairs and a tv. TV was about 21inch old style television which I think let down the rest of the rooms modern feel but it worked well and had all the major TV channels and Sky. There were built in wardrobes, minibar, toaster, microwave, jug etc behind mirrored doors. There was a very small deck through a door/window but this is why I rated this hotel above average rather than excellent as my room overlooked a grotty back alley. Curtains shut that view out nicely but as the hotel was no where near full I felt they could have given me an ocean view - my advice ask for ocean view. I had room service for each breakfast/dinner and this was all fine.

Very nice hotel. Great location you are right in the centre making it easy to walk everywhere. Good value for $150.00 NZ per night including a cooked breakfast for two. Room nicely decorated with modern amenities and was a good sized room. Bathroom spotless. Would stay here again for sure. Reception staff very friendly and helpfull.

We had a suite at this hotel and found it to be comfortable, clean and the hotel is ideally located for travelling around the Bay of Plenty. We had hired a car from Auckland and there is plenty of free parking on the 3rd floor of the car park behind the hotel which was good. When we arrived we received a complimentary glass of drink in the evening.

As others have mentioned that there is no restaurant at this hotel, which given the cost they find surprising. However I would say that given its location, The Strand is 2 minutes walk away, they do not need a restaurant as it would just be a loss maker as there are many fine cafes etc nearby. But if you want they can order breakfast for you from a local cafe though we never bothered with that.

If you have a car it is only 5 minutes to the beach at Mt Manganui where there is mile upon mile of golden sand. It is easy to park there and more surprising its free!

The only minor criticism I have is that for the price we paid, in a similar hotel you would expect a queen or king size bed, here all you got was a standard double bed. But that said it didnt spoil our stay.

We stayed as a family at this hotel and found it to be new, clean and friendly. I would say its aimed at business travelers or more upmarket clients and with this in mind its strange it did not have a restaurant.

It is on right in the center of town and there are plenty of places to eat with a few minutes walk. However we nearly ended up with no food when all the restaurants started closing quite early. It was a Sunday so that might have been the reason.

Car parking was at the rear of the hotel and seemed secure.

The room, well more a small suite, had a lounge with a pull out bed, good size bathroom with jacuzzi and separate shower. The bedroom was of a good size.

We arrived at the hotel a couple of days after christmas and were very surprised at how centerally located the hotel was. It is right in the middle of all the shops, cafes, and night life. The only thing you have to drive to is the beach. The service was great. When we arrived we were treated to beer, wine, or soda plus snacks. We then went to head to the beach and they had beach towels for us. The rooms were very large by any standards and the bathrooms had great extras like heated towel racks and great soaps and shampoos. All in all I loved the place and wish I could have stayed longer. We were a party of 9 and were all very happy with our rooms.
