We were urgently requiring accommodation for a family group over Labohr weekend in Tauranga and someone rang and found us Colonial Court. I cannot reccommend this place highly enough. Not only was the owner more than accommodating but also gave us options for our large group. The option that we ended up taking allowed for our family group of 12...

Sky Decoder ( 50 channels ) full range of toiletries ( shampoo etc. ) I- Pod dock, free wifi, and comfortable furniture, if all you want to do is relax...

Great rooms and staff couldn't be more helpful and accomodating. Ideal location close to ammenities and in a central part of Tauranga so easy to reach all parts of the city quickly.Rooms were modern, spacious and comfortable. Servicing each day was excellent.

A lovely place to stay. Clean tidy rooms which have every convenience including free wifi, iPod dock and over 50 tv channels. The owners worked tirelessly during my stay of two weeks to ensure my needs were met. It's a bit of a trek to town but does have public transport right at the gate.

A very pleasant stay. This is an older motel, but you would not know it. Units are impeccably clean, quiet, with all modern facilities, including free wireless internet, and individual SKY decoders in each room - great for us Formula One fans! TV is individual in lounge and bedroom, so if one of you likes Coronation Street and the other...

Warm welcome from Kris and shown to our studio unit which was very comfortable. Kris gave us quick rundown on useing tv and left. He came back five minutes later and asked were we interested in looking at a bigger unit as we were staying two nights. He had had an early departure so this unit became available. It was...

As we were staying for a week we booked a separate bedroom unit, No 4, which was nicely decorated, not overly spacious, but had table and chairs to enjoy the sun outside at the front in the morning and at the back in the afternoon. Staying again, for a shorter period, we would book a studio - No 6 looked...

I've stayed at Colonial court many times over the last 10 years for work and with the family. The place is always outstanding, with every amenity you could want, especially the free fast internet which is very useful when working away from home. Easy to get to and Kris&Tracy are always welcoming. They keep coming up with new and innovative...

I stayed for 5 nights when I first arrived in New Zealand. I was very impressed with the standard of accommodation and Kris and Tracy's attention to detail. They went to great lengths to ensure I had all i needed throughout my stay and offered useful advice on establishing myself here in Tauranga. I can't thank them enough for their...
