We received a warm welcome when we arrived and the unit was clean and roomy with all the facilities as advertised. The setting beside the lake was lovely and it was quiet, although not too far from the shops bars and restaurants in the town.

Cosy, comfortable, super clean and quite large unit with a well equipped kitchen; good location (only a few kilometers away from the city center). Accent was perfect for us and we truly enjoyed our short stay further enhanced by the wonderful welcome of our hosts. Highly recommended!

We had the garden room, which was separate to the other rooms. It had a view of the large field behind and was a very homey type room, with an extremely comfortable bed. We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts, who were very helpful with any questions we had. Very clean and well maintained. My only negative...

Dennis the host greeted me warmly as soon as I got out of my car when I arrived, as if he knew when I was arriving. He immediately checked me in and gave me very good recommendations on where to visit on my trip to Tauranga the next day. He also gave me the map to town. The biggest gesture...

We had booked the lake view cottage and it was a stunning place to stay in. The highlight was the central hall and the kitchen which had amazing views into the lake outside. Well appointed kitchen and other facilities too. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Stayed with my 9 year old granddaughter. Staff were very helpful with local information. It is a small motel but clean and comfortable. Across the road from the lake. It was perfect for us and not expensive.

I paid extra for a room with a view of the lake. Actually, I needed to sit on the deck to see the lake, which was quite enjoyable. There is a walking path along the lake, which went for quite a ways. The bed was very comfortable. I slept like a baby. I also used the hot tub, which has...

We had a king studio room which was spacious with 2 different outside seating areas one which looked across the road to the lake and the other in its own small garden space. It is out of the town in 2 mile bay so not suitable if you want to walk to all the bars and restaurants. There is however...
