This is a really lovely location next to a park with lots of trees and lawns for children to play in yet really handy to the city. The unit had well appointed facilities and the owner/manager was more than helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending this motel.

Room tip: We had the end room next to the park and it was very quiet.

We left tauranga after a days work leaving at 3.30pm to stay at awatea the night before a photo shoot the next morning and heading back home again.Not knowing where to stay we looked up booking.com and booked two rooms the day before.on our trip down once we reached taihape at 7.40 pm we realized we would be about 15min to 30 min after checkin so we phoned ahead politely to notify thinking they would leave a key under Matt or in room. Told extremely rudely that we can find somewhere else to stay and we should not be so lazy he has been up since 6am. Called bloody lazy for using booking.com Explaining the situation made no difference.Four years on the road and I have never met anyone like this. Stay away from awatea. Cost us for another 2 rooms at another hotel who were much more considerate.

A basic motel unit somewhat dated, but clean and comfortable. The gardens were overgrown and untidy and the whole place could do with a bit of a tidy up.
Neighbour sat outside his unit smoking and we would suggest a smoking area away from the units.
Also suggest security stays on the windows as we were rather hot inside overnight and did not want to leave windows open.
That aside, it suited our needs and we were not in it much. The adjacent park area has lovely trees with birds singing in the morning.

We were In Palmerston North for a Senior Women’s Cricket competition weekend, stayed here-fantastic. Very clean, well stocked with appliances, soaps, towels etc, relatively close to town, and perfectly situated for Fitzherbert Park.
Wayne was welcoming, friendly and chatty.
Highly recommended to anyone needing accommodation.

Our one bedroom apartment was very comfy for a couple of nights. We did hear the people in the next room a little bit one morning, but overall quite peaceful. It did smell a bit musty though, which wasn't good for my asthma. Plus was a bit old and could do with a refurbishment. Good off street parking. Petrol station across the road with great coffee too!
