Easy to find this motel, very short walk to the beach, and we can borrow surfboards.
We booked via booking.com so check in was really ray. The staff friendly and helpful, lots of local knowledge of the area.
Rooms adequate, I assume they are renovating as our families room looked brand new. Ours, clean and tidy, well equiped kitchen with everything you need including a cooker.
We talked last night and "we will be back"

Stayed: October 2017, travelled as a couple

Similar to other feedback on this site we took notice of positive reviews. The unit was indeed clean and in a nice, quiet location. We stayed in Unit 5. Unfornately, the shaving hotpoint did not work, the cold tap handle came off in my hand, the bathroom windows could not be closed due to no handles (not good in cold conditions and a safety issue) and extremely low pressure in shower. When these issues were pointed out to the owner a refund of some kind was indicated however 2 weeks on and nothing as yet. Basic maintenance issues such as these would need to be addressed before we would ever consider staying there again.

We wanted something reasonably priced and just for a night (wished it was longer) as had a couple of appts to attend. We brought my 15yr old grandosn also who just arrived to stay with us from Sunshine Coast. We have Villa 1. We are impressed, so clean, cosy, everything we wanted and needed. Beds made up really nicely. Spacious and the young lady in the office was so nice and obliging. Handy to everything. Some of the reviews say outdated, well I guess if you want new or modern then you pay a heck of alot more money. For us this is perfect. We stay in lots of places as we own a travel business, and I know alot of our clients would think this was great. Lovely and quiet also. Thanks so very much.

We took notice of the positive reviews of this motel and a few negative ones. We booked for 2 nights but regretted it.
We stayed in unit 7 so can only review that unit. It was dirty, mouldy and overdue for a complete refurbishment. There is a general lack of attention to detail... the heater does not work, the single smoke alarm is in place but minus battery, lights bulbs are blown and not replaced. The cleaning is superficial at best.
However.... the shower was clean and worked well, the location is very good and is quiet.

Room Tip: Give this motel a complete miss until it has been completely overhauled

Always a great place to come and stay when visiting Mount Maunganui. About 8 min drive into the main center and 8 min drive to get to Tauranga from here. Walk to the beach takes less than 5 min. Surf boards, body boards on offer to use. Friendly staff easy check in and out. Affordable price with free internet.

Room Tip: The unit at the end has an outdoor area at the rear
