      We liked that is was really quite and the separate shower and toilet was a bonus. Breakfast is good value as long as they improve on the poaching off the eggs. Complementary new paper is a nice touch. Great parking. We would stay again that is for sure.

      Breakfast poached eggs, hard, not really poached, more in those tin things that you can poach in and they are always hard. Like to have had real poached eggs. Under the tap in the bathroom sink was the only dirt in the whole place other wise spotless. Fan in bathroom goes on too long after the shower, fire alarm set off as steam set it off since it was only on top of the kitchen unit thingy.

      The view from the waterfront apartment. Clean tasteful new refurbishment

    • Couple

      Really Nice apartment with lovely shower, bed and view across the bay. Great helpful staff and good location for exploring the bay of plenty, nowhere is too far. You can also do the coromandel but it is a long days drive from Tauranga. Can walk into central tauranga, literally a 10 min walk to all the bars and restaurants.

      Not really a negative but just be aware that the kitchenette comes with a toaster, kettle and microwave (no hob). This was fine but we didnt realise until we got there.

      I was charged the wrong rate when leaving which was embarrassing for me as I had to correct the mistake.

      Location, cleanliness, room comfort

      For price and on viewing photos on website I had anticipated a reasonable view over sea, not out the side if you sat in a corner of the room. I also expected to be able to sit outside of the room on balcony etc.

      High quality, great value motel. Spotless in external & internal appearance & cleanliness.Very hospitable host on arrival. Large, comfortable room with view of bay. Parking outside room. Easy 15 minute walk to town & restaurant strip by the water. Short drive to neighbouring town of Mt Maunganui & its sights. A really delightful area.

      Location convenient for our purpose reasonably quiet location and magnificent view of upper harbour

      Very expensively fitted out room with poor and impractical result eg shower and toilet with glass part door and glass wall to bed area, glass shelf in shower at eye height 1 reading light at double bed, 2 over single, main light over table so low as to obstruct view of TV
