Without a doubt the best situated motel in Mt Maunganui, exceptionally clean comfortable. Hosts were really lovely people. This motel is such a short walk to all the best of Mt.Maunganui, food, bars, walking the Mount, beach and harbour shoreline. We were sorry we only had an o/night stay as this place is best we saw in a short 1 week stay in N Z, cannot wait to make a return trip.

Surpisingly a great place. I usually avoid motels or motor inns but our options were limited at this time of year. It doesnt look like much from the outside but the room and service were impecible. The room itself was huge, maybe 3-4x bigger than a standard hotel, and super clean. Well equipped too, with the usual lage bed, TV and wifi, but also a wee kitchen with some basic supplies. Overall fantastic, comfortable, everything you need. On the downside, we paid over $200 NZD for just the 1 night which is not the cheapest, the pool is tiny as well but the beach is a 5min walk away anyway.
