The new owners show that they really care about service. The room was exceptionally clean and tidy - and the sheets were magnificent. Lovely crisp cotton! Didn't use the pool - but it looked very clean. It's a nice walk from the shops and the beach - but in a really convenient location for getting to Tauranga. Would definitely come...

Lovely unit, very neat and clean, very private courtyard with great seating, the only setbacks are there are no power points in the second bedroom and the lack of power points in the living area also had difficulty getting wifi connection, apart from that great motel close to what we needed yet far enough away.

Check in was easy and the room was really clean, modern and comfortable with everything we needed. We didn't use the kitchenette much as we decided to check out the local restaurants and cafes. Would recommend...
