    'going the extra mile' responses from the owner courtesy and friendliness clean towels every day breakfast brought the night before - so no early rising!

    noise from the traffic couldn't get an outside line

    central, clean, very friendly

    The old wall paper in our room was peeling and spoilt the overall look however it was still a lovely clean room

    The helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. Clean, spacious room, with cool details like the way the towels were folded. Cute!

    Ummm... Every time a truck went by, I thought it was an earthquake. Gave me a bit of a fright the first time- till I realised what it was. It was only my room; I asked a friend in one of the downstairs rooms, and she didn't even notice trucks going by.

    A good size comfortable unit. We were given an upgrade by the friendly, helpful manager. Took a while to find motel at first and it is a little bit out of town but with a car wasn"t a huge inconvenience

    It was just right for our needs which was somewhere to stay that was near the TECT Arena. We liked the decor & forgot to ask about the colour the room was painted as we were thinking about it for some redecorating we are doing ourselves. Not every day someone is interested in the colour of a motel. Liked the soaps etc too.

    It was a convenient motel stop - basic but value for money and clean

    It's on a main road but the traffic didn't last all night.

    The room had a good size lounge and bathroom

    Roger, the owner---really friendly and helpful. Gave me a carton of milk on arrival, and was great in helping me sort out directions to the places I had to go in Tauranga. The spa bath---wonderful after a day's fishing! The unit was spacious, but also felt cosy

    Location not great if you plan to go into Tauranga for an evening out and don't want to risk a drinking and driving violation. You couldn't walk into the city, it's too far out, and the last bus in was 7.55pm. That means a taxi back. But if you're planning to drive everywhere, no problem

    Friendly host. Comfortable & quiet. Clean & excellent service. Breakfast was lovely & the whole experience was value for money

    The appartement were we stood was really good. The owner was very welcoming and at our services. You can have a free bottle of milk every day.

    Because the room was located near by bushes, we had lots of flying insects in our appartment.

    The host was very friendly. The motel was very clean and tidy.

    The water heater ?kept clicking on and off during the night which woke us up several times, apart from that it was a nice little place to stay.

    Price and cleanliness

    Difficulty in getting in and out of the motel in cars..... especially at peak times of traffic flow. Noisy road due to high levels of heavy trucks travelling along this road . These problems would cause us to consider staying in another motel that did not have these particular problems.

  • Older travelers

    It was close to the ten pin bowling alley which our son was at a tournament which was great. Hoteliers were v helpful and friendly. Unit was v clean on arrival. Clean towels and condiments each day. It had everything we needed for cooking. Would definitely recommend to anyone and use again ourselves too.

    We tidied up ourselves each day and made our bed. We were disappointed therefore to find crumbs we had left on the kitchen table and cup stains on the bedside table after our room had been serviced and the towels were not changed also on this occasion.
