Stayed only one night on a weekend but found this motel to be very clean and quiet. The bed was comfy and the mineral pool off the bedroom was great. it was very good value for money and well located. I would happily recommend this hotel to friends and family.

We stayed as a family of 6 and there were enough beds for us all, but it was so cramped with barely room for suitcases. The layout for all 6 beds made sense but I don't think they realised 6 people means 6 suitcases and there was just not enough space for everybody to be comfortable. The beds were also...

Hi there Thank you for your feedback I totally agree in regards the lack of space for luggage, I think more beds have been put in over the years (well before we took the reins) Our 'large family units' are much more spacious but they only sleep 5 and the have a maxi spa bath but unfortunately no 'thermal' hot...

We only stayed for one night as we were driving to Auckland to catch a flight the next day. Although our unit was a little dated it was comfortable and very clean. The thermal pools are great and very private. The swimming pool was however cooler than the thermal pool which was a welcome relief on a hot Tauranga day....
