Mission Belle Motel
Ranked #3 of 13 Hotels in Mount Maunganui
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 August 2017

A real treat. Couldn't rate this fantastic motel and its lovely owners more highly. A friendly welcome, and the motel immaculately clean with modern, stylish decor. Easy, short walk to the beach, Maoao mountain seaside circuit walk (we saw two seals on the rocks), endless restaurants and cafes, and shops if you should need them.

Room Tip: Number 3 had a view of the Mount from the bedroom!

Possibly the cleanest, neatest and best presented accommodation I have stated in. Inside and outside are immaculate.

The unit was on the small side but had everything we needed and self catering was certainly possible but we used the local cafés literally a stone's throw away.

I see some reviews have mentioned external noise and I could understand that given the close proximity to night life. We experienced no such problems on a Saturday night.

Friendly reception helped to tick all the boxes.

Really friendly owner and great welcome. Room was spotlessly clean and had some nice thoughtful little extras. Sky tv channel selection was abundant compared to other hotels and the wifi was really good too. The location was unbeatable, so close to both Pilot Bay and Main Beach, the Main Street with an abundance of restaurants and a short walk up to the Hot pools at the base of the mount. We had a pretty hot weekend, whilst there were fans provided in the room, during the day it was a bit too warm - night time was more manageable. A small gripe, but air con would make this place absolutely perfect

Awesome branding, very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location close to all the bars and restaurants. You'll find allocated carparking outside your suite which makes it extremely convenient on rainy days! Highly recommended if you're staying in the Mount.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Mission Belle is a family run motel in Mount Maunganui (Mauao). The Belle's hosts are Cathy and Ray who came over from England in 2008 and fell in love with the place as soon as they saw it. One of their favourite countries in the world is Spain and because it reminded them so much of the spanish buildings they were used on the coast it seemed to be the perfect scenario - a little piece of Spain in New Zealand - what more could they want??!! Unfortunately it wasn't available for them to own at that time but as soon as it came on the market, they snapped it up! They've been in the motel since December 2011 and have so far loved every minute of it. There is a sizable barbeque area and various seating areas dotted around the property, with or without shade and they have improved on the landscaping. The rooms were originally decorated with a "spanish' feel about them (hence the name) and now Cathy and Ray feel that updating the rooms is high on the agenda of plans that they have for the place. It is ideally located, close to all amenities that the Mount has to offer - fantastic cafes, amazing restaurants, and the beautiful stores that are all very appealing. With only a couple of minutes walk to the quiet Pilot Bay beach and a five minute walk to the main beach, there really is no need of a pool! Having said that, the Hot Pools are at the base of Mauao and are easily accessible with a ten to fifteen minute walk from the Belle. A beautiful walk around Mauao where you can take in some fantastic sights, or a more energetic or if preferred, a slow climb up to the summit will be an effort well rewarded with the magnificent views over the town and the sights of Tauranga. ... more   less
