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.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel comfortable and "at home". Gina and Pete are the perfect hosts and made sure we had everything we could possibly need - but at no time did they intrude.
Our rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious and we enjoyed time together as a group in the games room and in the lovely heated spa pool.
The facilities were well maintained and the grounds kept tidy. The neighbours had a fairly large party on the Saturday night, but once we shut the door to our units you could barely hear the festivities next door.
As an older group of women we like our creature comforts and we have absolutely no complaints about the Beach House Motel.
We highly recommend this place as a little piece of paradisel!!

This is an amazing motel where the hosts Gina and Pete are the neatest people who bend over backwards for their guests. We have never felt so welcome in a motel or hotel in this country like we did here. Amazing spot with great amenities ie. the nice pool, spa and games room and just a short walk to the beautiful Papamoa Beach. Ww would stay here again in a heartbeat and that will definately be happening as my parents have now settled in Papamoa, so see you next time Gina & Pete, thanks for being the most awesome hosts!

My partner and I loved our 9-night stay at the Beach House Motel. The room was very spacious, modern and clean with a comfortable bed and lovely couch. Cooking facilities were perfect for cooking dinner most nights. The location is great - two minute walk from the beach, close to the Papamoa shops, and a short drive to Mount Maunganui. We loved the pool and spa area

Stayed in the 2 bedroom unit (downstairs). Great location for the beach, 2-3 minutes walk. Rooms are very spacious and clean, and reasonably quiet. The road this is on is quite busy, so be aware if you have young children. About 20 minutes from Mt Maunganui by car. Didn't use the pool, but it did look good. Carparking is quite tight and involved a fair bit of shuffling around if you get in late. Servicing of units quite basic (ie beds not made, dishes not done) but hosts happy to supply fresh towels etc every morning.

I have been travelling around the north island and on my last night I wanted something different from holiday parks.
Location wise this motel was close to the beach, approx 3 minute walk. Massive plus.
When I arrived I was greeted by the hostess who really couldn’t have shown any less interest in me if she tried. Maybe I expected too much but some interest in me would be better than none.
My room was close to the pool. Baffles me as families were further away which meant I listened to kids having a great time where maybe I would have been better suited further away.
The street is really noisey so I’d suggest booking a room further from the road. The dog next door barked all night.
The guest next to me smoked so I couldn’t keep the bedroom window open. It was great weather so really hot inside and no air con. The ceiling fan in the lounged blew dust everywhere. It was a dusty unit - maybe from the road front?
The room was huge with three beds. Mine still had the electric blanket on it which caused some discomfort when rolling on it through the night.
The curtains had stains. The chain was missing from front door. I did not feel secure. One of the cupboard doors didn’t fit properly.
A little bit of care and attention could really have made a difference to this room.
At $195 for the night I’d have expected a little more.

What a wonderful place. The rooms are spotless and clean. Kitchen well stocked with all you need to cook a small meal. Toilet and shower had all you need and the towel where very soft. Staff went above what I would have expected and had me feel a home.
