Stayed for one night while holidaying in Tauranga. On the plus side, lovely unit - clean, modern, good facilities. Great TV, lovely bed (quite firm though and mightn't suit everyone's taste), spacious unit, lovely bathroom and nice deep bath. The service was particularly good - the manager was lovely and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. On the slight downside, the shower was set too low and as a tall person it made washing my hair rather difficult. And too much light filtered in through the curtains at night (there were lights on outside all night) and through the back door, which had no curtaining. The hotel is also set on a very busy intersection and there was quite a bit of noise in the early evening, but that settled down over night. All in all though, a very pleasant experience and I would probably stay again.

Room Tip: If I were to stay again I'd take ear plugs to block out the noise and an sleep mask to block out...

Stayed here while attending the Tonic conference and was blown away. Beautiful unit with everything you need provided...wonderful plunger coffee a bonus :)
Bathroom is great..both of us tried the spa bath and loved and the shower is best ive ever had..yum! ..and the towels!! ...whoever does the folding and set up needs a medal..felt totally pampered
Furniture and fittings are top rate and the linen devine..we were on intersection side but both slept like babies, Staff were brilliant..efficient but non intrusive
Can fully recommend Academy to anyone looking for accommodation close to Historic Village conference centre (5 min walk if that) and I wouldnt hesitate to stay there with a family also

Not where I usually stay in Tauranga on business as my favourite motel was fully booked. I wouldnt agree with the self rated 4.5 stars, in my opinion more like just scraping through on 4 stars. Happy with the room which was clean and neat with good furnishings and a comfortable bed. Didnt like the shower which was in the spa bath with a curtain, but if you are a bath person you would probably be very happy. The staff were great and always smiling. Its on a busy intersection however I found the traffic noise wasnt a problem. The poached egg breakfast was very good and better value than most motels in the area. Overall a good value motel

We booked on Wotif and was upgraded on arrival - lovely surprise. The room was nice and quiet despite being on a major intersection (easy to find). Very comfortable king sized bed, great little kitchenette and good bathroom. The owner was lovely and very welcoming.

We have stayed here several times and had booked at New Year for three days. Unfortunatly my Mother got ill and we had to cancel. They did so at no penalty even though they could have probably sold the room numerous times before we canceled, which is why we will continue to stay there when we go to Tauranga. Great people. Motels very clean and comfortable. There two day winter specials that include breakfast are such good value.

We made a last minute booking so didn't no what to expect but were pleasntly surprised. The place was immaculately clean, staff were friendly and helpful. Plunger coffee and REAL milk (not those silly little punets that hold about 1 teaspoon of milk) and decent sized coffee mugs. The linen on the bed was quality and we slept like babies. We will definatly use them again.
