Trinity Wharf Tauranga
Ranked #4 of 57 Hotels in Tauranga
Reviewed May 7, 2011

What a nice 2 nights I had at the Sebel Trinity Wharf!

I stayed at the superior king room. Unfortunately my room had no view of the wharf or harbour. The room however is very spacious, modern, clean and tastefully furnished. The bathroom was a delight too.

Breakfast buffet cost $20 for either cooked / continental and $30 for both. There were a good range of food offered. To top it off, you have front seat views of the bridge and the harbour while you dine!

Check in / out was a breeze. Reception was very friendly and efficient.

I will definitely return to stay here should I make another trip to Tauranga!

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was fabulous. Our room was really nice with that little bit of luxury, heated floor tiles in the bathroom plus we were lucky enough to have a room with harbour views which was outstanding. We had a "High-Tea" which was great value for $20pp plus the most amazing cooked buffet breakfast the next morning. The location is awesome, being just down the road from The Strand which has all types of cafes and restuarants if you feel like a change of scene. The staff were friendly and helpful and we would definately go back again.

Room Tip: Mentioned it was a special occassion

Can highly recommend this hotel - stayed 2 nights for wedding anniversary. Had a lovely room with gorgeous views. Room extremely clean, with lovely bathroom with bath and shower with good pressure. Viewed "spa" unit, and the spa bath was not much larger than standard bath supplied in our room, so decided not to pay upgrate $. Breakfast was sensational, and sitting on the deck on a beautiful morning was a great way to start the day. Staff all extremely friendly and helpful. No problem with parking. Will definitely stay again when in Tauranga. Our stay exceeded our expectations.

Room Tip: sea view definitely worth paying for.

A typo on the Sebel Tauranga's web page - located in the PAY of Plenty. Obviously they take this typo seriously because you do have to pay, and pay, and then pay again. Pay for Wifi access (which you can only use in the lobby), pay for a newspaper, pay for the coffee for the plunger, pay a lot for an average meal.

The day we were in Tauranga was a beautiful 27 degree day, so we thought an early afternoon swim would be nice. Only problem is, the pool only faces east - and is surrounded by the hotel on all other sides, which means we froze, and left after 5 minutes. So unless you want to use the pool in the morning, forget it.

As it is quite at walk to other restaurants, and not wanting to lose our precious parking space, we decided to dine in at the restaurant, even after seeing the exorbitant prices. My husband's steak was overcooked, which even the waitress could see and she would "tell chef about it", but that was all we got! Then it was time for bed - and no sleep. The walls must be paper thin, and you could hear oher guests coming back at night, showering, toileting (not nice), and whatever else they were doing.

We were very disappointed, but I guess we should have know better - it is a Mirvac hotel!

The view thing is a bit over rated..tiny balcony very close to others..not private, tiny peak of the sea. Also felt that they had not listened to what I had been very specific in asking for when booking...however did give us a nicer room when I rejected first room...lucky we checked in early. Bathroom was nice and roomy. Yucky tea sachets....where's my Earl Grey?? If travelling with kids, no kids channel at all. Parking is an issue...came back from dinner and no park...altho when asked they mentioned below ground parking (might have been good to warn us on the wedding happening there and parking issues when we checked in). Bit of a walk to get to restaurants and shops, wear comfy shoes. Had the breakfast buffet .....adequate food, but stunning location and restaurant staff were lovely.

I was in Tauranga during my vacation and decided to stay in Sebel, we stayed here for 4 days,our main reason for choosing this hotel was that it was very much convieniently located in the main city of Tauranga ,resturants,bars,hopping,saloon is just walking distance...... I must say from the moment you walk into this hotel you will be greeted by the friendliest team of staff from frontline to the breakfast bar even the housekeeper and the porter.... I am very particular about customer service I don't mind spending more $$$$$ as long as I get superb service that matters. This hotel was worth spending time...... just great. !!!!!!!

The hotel itself is very nice, the room we were given was lovely inside, very large and hughe bathroom, it's just that the hotel gave the impression it was more for buisiness than pleasure. The pool is tiny and not in a good location. The gym is tiny and the equipment poor and worn out. The restaurant was too expensive and we did not eat in it. The service from reception was impersonal.
Our room overlooked the car park, and unfortunately the hotel is directly in front of the goods train line that runs to the port so we were disturbed by the sound of trains rumbling by in the night.
The location of the hotel is handy for the 'city' but the views are industrial, I suppose it is on a 'wharf' though.
We felt let down by our stay here, but that was not just the hotel, it was Tauranga, theres nothing much there at all, but of course this just our opinion.
