“Great place to stay”
Reviewed July 3, 2010

I had a great night sleep, the true test of how comfortable you are when staying away. The rooms were clean, warm and tidy. Tracy and Kris were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed at Colonial Court Motor Inn after reading the wonderful reviews about it. But even after expecting a great place to stay we were pleasantly surprised. The accommodations are outstanding! Large room with high ceilings, huge bed, variety of dishes in the room, milk in the fridge and very fast internet accessibility. The room was also exceptionally clean. It felt more like staying in somebody's guest house than in a motel. We would most definitely recommend staying here during your next trip to Tauranga.

I stayed with Tracy and Kris for 3 nights and you couldn't ask for a more comfortable stay or more friendly, helpful hosts. I knew nothing of the area, so they suggested great day trips to Rotorua and Mt Manganui (excellent beach) as well as easy directions to walk to shopping and great eating places. The room was extremely comfortable with lovely amenities including coffee, tea, delicious chocolates and the best motel soap I've ever used!!! I would highly recommend Colonial Court to anyone visiting Tauranga!

This motel is a little gem. Kris is a very genial host. Ask him for an avacado if they're in season. We asked for a quiet area and were given the choice of 2 units, they both had 1 bedroom and were clean and comfortable. There was complimentary internet and printing and dvd hire. We got all our washing done, unfortunately, it has to done even when on holiday. It's on a busy road, but no noise problems.Tauranga is a buzzing little metropolis, plenty of choice of restaurants, wether fine dining or a pub meal. It is so central. Whakatane and Rotorua are a short drive away, perfect for day trips. Be sure to visit the Kiwi encounter, just outside Rotarua.

I would recommend Colonial Court Motor Inn to anyone wanting a fresh, clean, and friendly place to stay. The rooms are modern and clean. To top all this off Kris and Tracy were great hosts with a welcoming hello each time I bumped into them and would ask if I needed anything.
