Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a double room with a lovely rural view with flowering magnolia and citrus trees. The room was spacious & clean. The swimming pool was was empty but we were given a voucher for the Fernland heated pools which were most enjoyable. The included breakfast was delicious.

Initial impressions: From road a long drive through well-manicured grounds to the hotel complex, which had a definite Mediterranean feel to it. The small pool that hugged the building between the parking area and the entrance looked rather unkempt and let the place down. Met by Gunther, the proprietor, who couldn’t have been more helpful, who checked us in and showed us to our room.
The room was large, light and airy and had a nice view over the grounds. Cooking facilities were a little limited but adequate for a one night stay with eating out in the evening. Bed was comfortable and the en suite facilities were good.
Weren’t sure what to expect for breakfast, which was included in the price. However we needn’t have worried as the breakfast was superb. We particularly liked the little extras provided by Gunther.
Altogether a very pleasant stay. Shame it up for sale. Some developer is going to make a killing.

Is definately out of town and have to drive anywhere for dinner and beach.
Rooms are not infant friendly. No cots supplied. Rooms are terribly warm and not ventilated well.
Breakfast included in price which was nice.
Pool not very clean and definately property needs a good makeover for the prices charged. Managers friendly enough. Free wifi is available.
Probably wouldn't stay again.

My partner and I booked a three night 'get away'- the only thing we now want to 'get away' from is this horrific Faulty Towers style 'hotel'.
The host has been rude, argumentative, confrontational and has no customer service skills.
There are no nice things about the room, no finishing touches that you would expect from a hotel, only 2 tea bags, 2 coffee bags, no water provided- you have to use the tap water from the bathroom.
The decor is confused, a Greek style bedside table- stone not secured and neither was a thick piece of glass just balancing on the top, a death trap for children. Plastic, cheap gold finishings, light bulbs in the room not working.
When we arrived no wifi as they keep it turned off.
The roof top terrace is just an old disheveled roof that creaks underfoot.
The phone in the room did not work and so I attempted to walk to reception, however no lights functioning on the corridor and so I had to fetch a torch to get to reception. On finding reception the manager Gunter he shouted at me and told me that the lights and phone were working. Reluctantly he walked upstairs only to find that indeed they were not. When I asked what would have happened in the event of fire he turned his back and left.
I have never stayed in such poor accommodation and I hope I never have to encounter such rudeness and poor service again.

Although we never rented the place, the experience we had with the owner was terrible. Be careful when booking and make sure you go and view the place before you book as the photos do not reflect the actual condition of the place, which we found out when we went and looked at it. We had to cancel our booking due to unforeseen circumstances and even though it was almost 6 months out from the booking date the owner kept 20% of the total cost. Almost $1000 which is ridiculous considering he still has almost 6 months to make another booking. Tauranga is a beautiful place filled with amazing people but unfortunately this place and owner is not one of them - just looking to make money without any thought to others.

This hotel was a total nightmare,worse place we have ever stayed,it was advertised as luxury hotel, when we arrived it was hard to find,with no signs, far away from anything, The Asian lady owner looked at us like we were going to steal something and asked for our car reg straight away,she asked us what time we wanted to go for breakfast,she offered 8.30am or 9 am, we said 9 am, she was very fake and took us to our room up a huge flight of stairs, no lifts,the room was crammed with tacky gold furniture,cheap bed covers,cheap jug that didn't turn off and the smallest tv,towels were old and cheap,I was so disappointed, I had paid $280 for 2 nights to stay in this 1 room with not even any milk, there was half a toilet roll and 3 tea bags,sleeping there the night was terrible, the bed was hard as rock, the pillows hard and flat,and the room was SO hot we could hardly breath, getting up in the morning (with a sore back) we went into breakfast at 8,50 am to be yelled at by the German owner that we were late,and to come earlier next time, we were shocked and should have mentioned his wife asked the time and we came early! but we were taken back, I said the bed was hard and room was hot and did he have another room we could have or could we have our money back for the following night and leave today? he said NO you cant have your money for the next night and it was the first time in 9 years they had ever had anyone complain, he went on and on with his wife backing him up,which is total rubbish because I should have said 2 words,TRIP ADVISER. we just stood and felt awkward and said nothing, clearly he was a crazy bad tempered lunatic,what was supposed to be a break away was turning into a horrible experience,the breakfast was greasy and cheap, they went on about all the imported cakes and breakfast items, they stayed and watched us eat, it was extremely uncomfortable, I wanted to leave then and just lose that days money and get out of there, but my husband said lets stay the night we have paid for it and we are not in the room much being out looking out at Tauranga when we left to go out i said to the wife I didn't want the room coming into as we had our personal items out but when we came back she had been in the room and touched everything! but not left another toilet roll or tea bags, I could not be bothered argueing with her also scared of her crazy husband.. but that night was awful, it was 7 degrees outside but we were baking hot with all the windows open and no blankets on, we called them and asked to turn down the heating to be told it was off !!!!! I was scared to sleep that night, every noise outside I thought the crazy owner was going to charge in with a chainsaw and chop us up,when we awoke ( with even sorer backs) I refused to go to breakfast,they can keep their rotten greasy rubbish for some other poor victims and I got out of there as quickly as possible.its a awful terrible place,stay away.

We booked this hotel as part of our driving holiday around NZ. We arrived at 6:30 in the evening, so it was dark. The light to the entrance was off, so the place was difficult to find. When I mentioned this to the operator, he argued with me that it was on. This place is positively terrifying at night! No lights to light up the drive way. The only light from the whole hotel was coming from inside the lobby. Our room was decked out in tacky '90's faux Greek decor with bunk beds set up right beside the main bed (we booked a double). Lots of noise, particularly from other guests rooms and the road. Breakfast was full of oil and sugar, so not for the health conscious. We arrived for breakfast five minutes early, only told be told off for arriving so late because of NZ daylight savings coming into effect over night, which the operator failed to mention the night before when telling us breakfast time. He argued with me that we should have known that it was daylight savings because we are from Australia (What???). We packed our things and fled as fast as we could. So if you wan't to revisit the '90's and like rude people, this place is for you!

We were really looking forward to our "chalet". We arrived a couple of hours early only to be told to go away and come back after 2. (We were only going to ask to drop our bags there as we were heading to mt manganui and couldn't see out of our back window due to the luggage). We returned after 2 and omg.....the 2 bedroom chalet was one bedroom and a pull out sofa in the only living area. You definitely could not swing a cat in here. The bathroom was clean as was the rest of the chalet. A "resort" is not the word I would chose. The bbq area is very run down. There was no restaurant. The games/gym room was pretty good.

Oh dear. Tonight we are in a genuine 2 bedroom apartment, ie two bedrooms plus living. The two bedroom chalet that we were so looking forward to (and paid almost $400 for) was a bedroom plus a small living dining kitchen that had a single bed squished in next to the table. What is called a chalet we call a dongs, a demountable hut. Expensive for what you get, very expensive. A dream gone awry. Miles from town, a good 10 minute drive so if you imagine yourself taking nice beach or lake walks without getting the car out forget it. If you're trying to find it in the dark there are no street lights and light over the sign at the front. Not even milk was provided. The host a little scary but I felt sorry for him too so we didn't bother asking for anything. Hot and stuffy, no fan, no screens on doors or windows. We opened our windows because it became so stuffy and soon the room was filled with flies and other insects. The poor people have probably run short of money as things are very run down and the pool in which we'd hoped to swim is not a goer. The cups and plates are chipped. There are no top sheets on the beds. No reading lamps. I'm trying to remember what sucked us in to actually book it in the first place! The wifi is patchy. There are it says on the website wonderful views of Tauranga Harbour, but that must be from the roof. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere actually in Tauranga, The office is locked up and it's dark so you can't ask a question or get any assistance. Appalling really!

I would come back in a flash. My mother, sister and I stayed here last week and it was wonderful. Everything was clean, the hosts showed perfect hospitality very friendly and helpful. Amazing value for money. Fantastic breakfast fully cooked, and with a surprise each day as well. Would recommend for anyone going to this area. It was set in peaceful, idyllic grounds with a lovely garden. This is not a normal motel, it felt much more homely and welcoming. Both Claudette and Gunter were lovely. Claudette was very funny and gave us a few shopping tips as well. Thanks for helping to make our trip so wonderful.
