This motor inn has been refurbished in modern colours and decor. It was very clean and comfortable with some extra little touches which made it stand out and give it that extra edge. Good sized rooms and bathroom. Very comfortable bed. The cooked breakfast was great and on time. Excellent, friendly service. The location was great with it being close...

We stayed here for a couple of nights. Immaculately clean and yes a great comfortable bed. Good sized bathroom and Sky TV This motel ticks all the boxes and more, the owner goes that extra mile. Wish other motels were like this. Will be back again and recommend

Had to stay 1 night in Tauranga so stayed at Colonial Court after reading wonderful reviews in Trip Advisor. What we found was a renovated and perfectly adequate motel. Some of the features dated from the original building (most noticeably the varnished, hollow-core doors), but it was clean, comfortable and quiet. We would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We were urgently requiring accommodation for a family group over Labohr weekend in Tauranga and someone rang and found us Colonial Court. I cannot reccommend this place highly enough. Not only was the owner more than accommodating but also gave us options for our large group. The option that we ended up taking allowed for our family group of 12...

Great rooms and staff couldn't be more helpful and accomodating. Ideal location close to ammenities and in a central part of Tauranga so easy to reach all parts of the city quickly.Rooms were modern, spacious and comfortable. Servicing each day was excellent.

A lovely place to stay. Clean tidy rooms which have every convenience including free wifi, iPod dock and over 50 tv channels. The owners worked tirelessly during my stay of two weeks to ensure my needs were met. It's a bit of a trek to town but does have public transport right at the gate.

A very pleasant stay. This is an older motel, but you would not know it. Units are impeccably clean, quiet, with all modern facilities, including free wireless internet, and individual SKY decoders in each room - great for us Formula One fans! TV is individual in lounge and bedroom, so if one of you likes Coronation Street and the other...

Warm welcome from Kris and shown to our studio unit which was very comfortable. Kris gave us quick rundown on useing tv and left. He came back five minutes later and asked were we interested in looking at a bigger unit as we were staying two nights. He had had an early departure so this unit became available. It was...
