Tuscany Villas Whakatane
Ranked #6 of 12 Hotels in Whakatane
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 10, 2014

We had the pleasure of staying at Tuscany Villa's this weekend and were really impressed with the warm and friendly welcome from management along with the high standard of the Villa's. Only a moments walk from the stunning waterfront, Tuscany Villa's are perfectly situated to take advantage of all Whakatane has to offer. Thank you - will be back to stay again soon.

The Tuscany Villas is located quite practically in easy walking distance to shopping and eating.
(Try the Fish & Chips a little up the river....)
Good rooms, comfortable beds.
But wifi access shoud be included these days....

This motel does not look anything like the website/AA accommodation book photos-they have been very creatively taken! We expected to have a small balcony outside our room to sit and eat breakfast but it is actually a shared walkway. This motel is described as a place for executive/business travellers but it was really very ordinary and we considered that it was poor value for money. There was only one comfortable chair in the room that wasn't actually that great to sit in. There were 2 tables in the room where another chair would have suited us better as a couple wanting to relax. However the bed was very comfortable and having a fan to circulate the air was a nice touch. The welcome was not overly friendly and without a compendium in room we relied on the local I-site for much of our information during our stay. Similar motels of this standard would normally provide a morning newspaper on request but this was not offered and without a compendium we did not know if one was likely. The internet connection would not connect-the only time this was an issue over several places we stayed on this holiday.
This motel does have a liquor licence so alcohol could be purchased at reception-a much better idea than a minibar in room. The unexpected step down from the room onto the shared walkway balcony is something that tripped both of us up on leaving and entering the room. The motel is near the river and close to the town centre and several restaurants.

Room Tip: Upstairs units do have a balcony/shared walkway.

Very high standard of Motel accommodation and in particular good value for money
Good local access within walking distance to all amenities
Pity they levied 30 $ NZ Wi-fi surcharge which was off putting

Thanks Michael, glad you enjoyed your stay, you will see from your receipt that you were not charged for WiFi as its free. On the vouchers we give you to log on it has a monetary amount but this is not charged. I have removed that amount form the dockets so as not to confuse anyone else.

The young couple who are now running this accommodation couldn't be more helpful and keen to please. They have moved over from Sydney and have great ideas to improve the rooms and service even more. They deserve to do well.

Not up to the rating standard advertised. Will seek other accommodation next time we pass through Whakatane. Only thing going for this place is that it is handy to the down town area. Good if you do not have a vehicle. Reception was average. Room was clean but over perfumed and needed aired.
