    Thank you Rachel. Baycourt do have some great shows, and you can check on our website about what's coming up. A dinner to any restaurant downtown, a short stroll away, before a great show, adds to a very pleasant night. See you again.

    Reviewed 15 November 2016

    This is one of the better places I have stayed at in recent years. The closeness to central tauranga, cleanliness, great fittings, lovely hosts, sky TV, comfy. What more could you want. I will be back
