We only had one night here in a one bedroom apartment. It was a very large room with the bedroom separated from the living area by sets of sliding doors. The apartment was on the ground floor so not much of a view. It was very well fitted out with a full size oven and fridge in the kitchen area....

We were off to see Pink Floyd experience at the baycourt thetre in Tauranga. As my husband is not allowed to drive at the moment we had to find something close to the venue. The Quest was a very short walking distance from the theatre and very close to the Strand for eating. The rooms were very spacious with everything...

Relatively spacious apartment for our family of four. There were 2 separate bedrooms, a large bathroom, an adequately stocked kitchen but surprisingly a very small living/dining area. There was also an outdoor patio area but we didn't use it. The apartment was on the ground floor so there weren't any views but really, we weren't there for the views, just...

Hi Chia SInSin Thank you for the feedback we do appreciate it. Unfortunately we cannot do much about the proportions of the rooms but hope perhaps you come back and try another room. We do have some with harbour views. Cheers

Quest Tauranga is a nice place to stay, rooms are above average size and having a kitchen in the unit is great to do your own thing for meals even if it is only for breakfast. The hotel room are located on the lower levels of the tower so no views but at the same time are nice and quiet...

Okay I'll be honest. When I booked this I expected run down and old ... and had based the price on thinking it would be just a bed to sleep in and then leave the next morning. But I walked in the door and was pleasantly surprised! It looks like brand new carpeting, in room 020. Immaculate condition room, the...
