At first was not quite once I booked this place but when arrived these doubts quickly went away. Great location, friendly staff and the rooms were a good size. Being based at the door of the mount is a real drawcard too.

Stayed here for 2 nights while exploring Tauranga and the mount. Staff member on check in was great. Friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our bed was terrible, had no support at all and was just too soft. We also had some kind of unit/generator outside our bedroom window in the outside area that stared up every now and then and was...

We stayed for a night on January 10th in the resort. The room was a good size but very dated, it could do with an overhaul. Location is very good. Only limited wireless per day and you have to pay if you exceed this. That will have to change in this day and age. Most resorts offshore now offer unlimited...

Let's get the positives out of the way. Location perfect and the size of the room was good. Areas for improvement (keep in mind a room is about $250NZ per night). No Aircon, the smallest car parks ever, our room was noisy (basically on the road), gym equipment poor, you only get 100mb of free wifi and long life milk...

Fantastic location, great price for the size of the room as well as the location. Beach is right across the road, staff at the front desk are friendly yet seem to be judging everyone.

Disappointment! We booked the twin towers with ocean view. The full cost for a 6 day stay was immediately zipped up on our credit card when the booking via booking.com was concluded.
