Reviewed 23 October 2017

Only stayed one night , and found the place relatively easily.
Its off the main zone of the Mount, so its not a noisy area to stay.
Room is good size, nice bed, all amenities provided.
Nice to have windows that opened.
Air con not needed as still not tropical weather, but it did have a aircon unit.
Good shower pressure.

Stayed here Saturday night.

At first glance we were sold. What an awesome room we got. Beds were comfy, the room came with a spa bath! Which we didn't have time to enjoy, but deffs next time.

It had outdoor furniture. One thing I was a bit puzzled on was the closure on the spa pool facility. It is winter and cold, thought maybe this service might have been available for guest?

However! Everything was awesome. Loved the fact it was close to the concert venue we were going to.

Cheers!

Thanks for your positive comments and we're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We've been working hard to upgrade our rooms and it's good to know that our guests appreciate the changes. Sorry that the spa was unavailable during your stay but sometimes we have to close it temporarily to clean and re-balance the water after heavy use. We'll make sure that it's in pristine condition for you when you return:)
Regards Kim & Paula.

The Peace Run team stayed here for one night, running from Auckland to Wellington via Tauranga. Beautiful place to stay. Friendly, warm hearted managers, comfortable, quiet, clean, and high quality. The best shower! Good kitchenette, lounge and dining in our 2- bedroom place.
Thank you kindly for your generous support of our cause. Sincerely, The Peace Run Team.

A lovely motel .The rooms are clean modern and well equipped. Staff are helpful with places to visit .There is a small pool and hot tub also plenty of parking. The location is great as you can walk to the beach or the shops from here.

We cancled 4 days prior to arrival due to my wife's illness. We were charged $540 on our credit card. I checked the occupancy of the units we were booked for and found them to get occupied for the duration of our intended stay. So the motel did not lose out from our cancellation, but made $540. We had a similar issue in Australia last year being unable to take up occupancy, yet we received a full refund of our deposit. NZ holiday accommodation is over priced and poor value.
