Nice and clean motel with friendly staff. Very beautiful and peaceful scenery from the hotel balcony and outside near the waterfront. The rooms were just nice and cosy with all the necessary amenities available. Wi-Fi here was not great though. Free parking was available. Would recommend for a short stay in Tauranga 8/10

Dear Zairin, thank you for the review. We are sorry to hear that you had issues with the wifi, as the motel is fully occupied the wifi does slow down with all the download traffic. We look forward to seeing you again.

I highly recommend this motel. Well priced, quiet, roomy and so clean and free unlimited wifi. Everything you need and very close to town. Only a short walk onto the waterfront for bars, restaurants and shopping.

Peaceful motel right on the water.Friendly,welcoming staff and spotlessly clean rooms with modern facilities and plenty of space.Close to shops and restaurants.Bathroom although very trendy is not for the modest as the door has intentional gaps at the top and bottom and there are glass bricks near the shower. Outside balconies downstairs are very close to each other too so prepare to make friends with your neighbors!

Thanks for the great review.
You summed up our lovely place perfectly. A perfect, peaceful waterfront setting with friendly and welcoming staff. Offering spotlessly clean rooms with modern facilities, yet within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants.
We look forward to hosting you again some time soon.
Regards.

Had a great two day stay here. The location is great and if you can get a unit with a balcony with a water view you’ll be pleased you did. Modern fitting, very smart decor. The small kitchen is very well equipped and cleverly situated behind sliding doors. One of the best layouts we’ve seen. Servicing of the room was excellent. Staff helpful and friendly

Far enough away from busy strip, but close enough to walk. The perfect location with water views. Rooms are generous in size, great little kitchenette, love the separate toilet to bathroom and the bed was super comfortable. Top marks to the cleaners as the place was spotless.
