“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Stayed in a studio for one night in December 2013. Wonderful welcoming staff and the room was just immaculately tidy and very clean. Very spacious and had everything we needed including our own washing machine in the room! The water pressure in the shower was perfect. This was my first time staying at a motel and i had an awesome experience!! Thanks Quest for the wonderful stay.

Up to Tauranga for a weekend away from Christchurch this well located clean spacious hotel was perfect and was just what we were looking for. We got a good rate for our spacious well equipped room with balcony. Very quiet.

Walking distance to main attractions, restaurants and the waterfront.

We had room with a spa bath and when we turned the jets on dirty water billowed out into the bath (I guess it's hard to clean in the jets?) but reception were most apologetic and intended to resolve the issue so all good :)

Friendly happy staff

After staying at Quest in Tauranga for three months, I feel very happy to give a glowing report.
The location of Quest is very good, very central, near the bus station, shops, cafes & resteraunts, but away from any noise, A very safe environment to stay.
The apartment was furnished very comfortably, lovely comfortable king sized bed, electric blanket if needed. Beautiful sheets & pillows. Table & chairs, desk, lots of wardrobe space, sky tv, radio, cd player.
Washer/dryer within your own apartment, ironing board/iron. Cooker, dish washer, fridge freezer, microwave, A very nice compact spa area. I was fortunate to have an apartment with a balcony & a sea view, which was the icing on the cake.
My grateful thanks, go to the Managers Duncan & Sally & their wonderful Reception staff Kelsey & Sam, a first class special Team, the welcome & service I received from them all was just amazing. I was made to feel part of a very happy Family, which I appreciated very much. Even though they were all busy, they always made time to have a chat with me, it was always service with a smile.. If anything needed to be a attended to within my Apartment it was done immediatelyl Thank you also to, Mercy & her team of lady cleaners who kept Quest immaculate.
Can't wait to make a return visit in February 2014.
Thank you for a memorable stay.

Good points: large room, clean & modern, good air con, secure car parking, friendly staff, balcony
Could improve: bed too soft (personal preference for harder bed), poor internet but a separate provider and issue was late addressed via e-mail, slightly weird shower configuration & had to remove bath stopper for proper drainage
Overall a good experience & would stay again

Stayed October 2013, traveled on business

We were pleasantly surprised all round by our stay here. Apartment size was generous and it was clean and well appointed. Reception staff were very helpful. We even had a water view. A short walk to shops and restaurants. A nice alternative to Mt Maunganui, at a much more competitive price.

Was a bit wary of what we would find as we got such an amazing rate, however the Quest Tauranga was excellent. Was so impressed. Spotlessly clean. Reception (Sam) was so friendly and really helpful. We had a studio room for us and our 7 year old son and the room was spacious. Washing machine, dryer, iron, cooking facilities, table. Excellent. Would recommend and will be back. Many thanks Quest Tauranga 5 stars

Room Tip: we were on the 1st floor. Very quiet, heard nothing. Very central. Would recommend.
