We only spent one night here. Good value for money, the beds were good, having a private spar a bonus after a long day. Very clean and tidy and a comfortable ground floor unit, which we had asked for. Getting to the place when you dont know Tauranga was a mission the last roundabout with traffic lights just before the road was confusing but that's not the fought of the motel. It did say coffee machine on advertising, no plunger or machine but plunger coffee provided...... so it may have been taken. If we were staying longer I would have asked them about it. Over all comfortable.

This establishment allows pets, but quite frankly I wouldn't let my dog anywhere near it. Spent a week here on work (clearly upset someone in bookings) and found it thoroughly unpleasant. On entry to the room I was greeted with carpet stains and an aroma akin to an ailing widowers home. Single beds serve as lounge seating and wooden decor and panelling throughout gives a distinctly 80s vibe. Shower is lined with black mould. The thermal pool may well be very pleasant but given its condition (refer to photographs) was not something I wanted to immerse my body in. Location is undesirable and driveway is on a corner of a busy road which is treacherous. All in all a dreadful time. Fortunately a corkscrew is supplied, as if you stay here you'll certainly want to drink.

We stayed here for two nights. Yes it is a bit weary and tired but being done up. Main thing is that it’s kept clean, the staff are lovely and friendly and having the private thermal pool (cleaned out daily) was fantastic. Great place to relax and unwind

Room had a strong smell of dog: “pet friendly” is a disadvantage to the next guest. Floor showed signs of use of dirty mop. Dark and in urgent need of refurbishment. Not appealing at all so looked to spend time out. Main busy road on blind corner and felt it a little bit of a lottery getting in and out.

This motor inn is quite lovely. I stayed here while having medical treatment nearby. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. There is a neat kitchenette with everything you might need. They have recently upgraded to have sky tv in each room which is a plus. The staff are friendly and helpful. I’ll happily stay there again.

The manager could not have been nicer. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a group of 10 teenagers on a sports trip and they were flexible and helpful. Rooms were clean, roomy and well set up. The pool was amazing!

I’ve stayed here a few times, it’s dated and I’m not fussy, I don’t expect perfection for $155 in fact I’m chill as..... However the cockroaches, the huge amount of goo/skin particles in the spa, the worker walking in while butt naked in the room, the sticky floor and I could go on....... I won’t be back, sorry Bennett’s but please lift your game .........

everything from the outside pool with peeling paint and road dust in the bottom, hideous bathroom, drapes hanging off broken tracks and a tv with terrible pic and sound and only 2 sky channels, whole place could do with a revamp, looks dark and dreary and dirty, could be made very nice with a bit of effort, get different cleaners!!

Jason was extremely helpful advising on local landmarks and places to eat. The self catering room sported its own thermal pool outdoors and the geothermally heated swimming pool was a joy. We bought a steak and trimmings from the local Countdown and made an excellent supper for ourselves. I wish these motels would provide a dish to microwave in though. Unfortunately there was a power outage in the morning so we moved. Otherwise would have stayed 3 nights.

We had read some of the reviews so were a bit apprehensive but we had a blast! The check in was quick and easy and a super friendly lady took care of us. Our room was clean and plenty of room for the four of us. Yes it’s old etc and yes the furniture and decor is 80s but that added to the charm :-) The family pool was clean and the pool toys were extra fun! We loved our little personal thermal pool .. nice and relaxing! It’s what u make of it and we genuinely had a really fun time there - Thankyou!!
