Warm, friendly and helpful hosts made the stay in a lovely clean and comfortable unit most enjoyable and a long day's trip around the cape on motorcycle. Thank you for the special too. Apologies for the delay in the making comment - no reflection on your great motel, just circumstances.

Thank you for your review of your stay with us. It was so funny to see the jandals in the carpark beside where the back door of the car was. Your mum must have got used to taking them off before she entered the unit because of our new carpet so thought she should do the same in your car....

We stayed here on our rest day in the Great Escapade bike ride around the North Island. Our suite was recently refurbished, well equipped, very clean and comfortable, a most welcome refuge from the bad weather! The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and our continental breakfast was simple but fine.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your cycle ride in NZ. The bad weather didn't last for long and of course now we have plenty of sunshine. It's a shame you missed the good weather in Whakatane.

My partner and I very much enjoyed our stay at this motel. It was spacious, comfortable, convenient, reasonably priced with a very well-equipped kitchen and we wished we had been able to stay longer. The hosts were friendly and very helpful.

My partner and I ended up stopping in Whakatane due to the gorge being closed, so stayed at the Tourist Court Motel. We found them both friendly and they were so helpful when it came to information on the road conditions. We enjoyed our stay and would most definitely recommend their motel to fellow travellers. They are very comfortable beds...
