“What we needed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

We were a bit disappointed with the car park view we got, but once you closed the curtains it was a great room - especially enjoyed the new, classy bathroom. Great location, close to The Strand's bars/pubs/restaurants. Only areas of improvement would be, better (free) WIFI access and would have been great if the pool was open later and had drinks service. Overall...a great hotel for what we needed over Christmas!

Easy walking distance to the Strand, where amazing restaurants such as Macau are well placed its a must for your stay in Tauranga. Great facilities, rooms over the water and gorgeous setting for evening drinks looking out over the bay. Staff are friendly and helpful and the whole ambience is perfect, its a rare find and a stay you will be inspired by.

Room Tip: Grab a waters view room.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

We were welcomed with a complimentary bottle of bubbles for our wedding anniversary/birthday celebrations. The rooms and bathrooms are huge, comfortable, clean and the views amazing! The staff were awesome and very attentive. The pool was also a highlight and heated which is lovely. We walked to the strand every evening which was a great walk and so many restaurants to choose from. Halo lounge was a great spot to chill and have a cocktail and the buffet breakfast was of course made even better with eating right over the water. We loved our three nights and really didn't want to leave. Will most definitely be back again.

Room Tip: Definitely go for a room over the water.

Stayed here for 3 nights, after doing a roadtrip fand it was really wonderful, didn't payed for the most expensive room but mine felt like a spa anyways, the view from the restaurant and from the pool is just awesome, I just wish the pool closed later and would be wonderful if you could order some drinks there!
Its a perfect place in a beautiful location just too relax!

Room Tip: Go for the Superior King Room with Balcony

Very disappointed in this hotel. I had been past it many times on way to other destinations and always thought it looked lovely. Well it disappointed on many levels. Our room was very disappointing, especially since we paid top dollar to stay in a nice room. The room looked out over the roof of building below when it was stated that our room had beautiful views. The room was very basic and for $300+ a night i expected it to be upmarket. The restaurant wait was hideous. There was only 2 of us and waited for an hour for our table then waited over an hour for our meals. Decided to order room service for dessert but this seemed to be a hassle for front desk and we were told would be an hours wait. Slack. Next day we left early morning for day and didnt return till 6pm to find our room exactly how we had left it. Our room had not been cleaned or tidied during the day. After phoning reception cleaners turned up to just throw us clean towels and say oh sorry we forgot. Really disappointed with this hotel, wont be going back.

Excellent hotel with great service. I was a first time customer in December 2013 and based on my experience I will be stay at Trinity Wharf when my business next takes me to Tauranga.

The views from my room across the harbour, particularly in the morning were stunning. I found the room rates and meals reasonably priced.
