The motel room was average in size, but was comfortable, neat and very clean. It is located on a busy road, but there was no traffic noise at night, so we slept very well. The staff were friendly and helpful and suggested a short drive to the restaurant area. Overall, we had a pleasant stay at this motel.

Great location, good facilities, I only stayed for a weekend but it was perfect for what I needed. I would stay here again. Comfy Bed big enough room. Clean and tidy, nice and relaxed staff. Petrol station across the road from accommodation if you need anything.

Despite being on a fairly busy road there was very little noise and was very quiet at night. Everything was very clean. This motel was very well situated for everything we wanted to do and the small pool was very welcome

The hotel receptionist was friendly and helpful. I stayed in 2 different rooms and both were of good standards. The pool looked cool but never got to use(raining). I recommend without a doubt! There is a good vibe about the place and is also family orientated.

This visit did not start well when the proprietor pointed out that " your the one in the budget accommodation". The option of even a Continental Breakfast was not offered even at an additional charge. I was directed to a Bakery. Not the most helpful sort of host.

Friendly and very helpful receptionist who was only too happy to give us directions to places we wanted to visit whilst in Tauranga. Room was very clean and had everything we needed, including two comfy chairs (in the past we've often had only one chair, meaning one of us had to perch on the kitchen chair or the bed!). Plenty...

Nice greeting.....but that's where it started to go downhill. Our unit was in the corner. When we arrived, we found that the doors were left open to air presumably. Workmen with cigarettes and a van parked 2 feet in front of our door meant we were greeted with the smell of cigarettes in the bedroom. The place is the dirtiest...
