This place is a modest walk from the centre of Mount Maunganui but also within reach of a range of useful amenities on Maunganui Road. For example, the local New World Supermarket is also within walking distance. This is my third stay here over the Mount Festival weekend and I have always found it a pleasure to be here. The...

I'd give it a five-star review if it were reasonable walking distance to the beach, but given how much it costs, we are not complaining in the slightest. Staff was most pleasant, our en suite room had everything we needed, and it takes five minutes to the beach, or to the center of town for restaurants, cafes and bars.

We recently stayed at Seagulls Guesthouse with our kids. It was a lovely place to stay - and a nice change from regular hotels and loud, busy hostels. Our room was big and clean - and the common areas were very much like staying in someone's house. We could easily walk to the beach and the main shopping/restaurant area. We...

Dear guest. Thanks for the time to reply and comments. Our rooms are compact, and our shared areas large, which allows us to offer comfortable low cost accommodation. All rooms have a fan during summer. Windows are all large for light but the windows have safety stays which doesn't allow them to be opened too wide. Thanks again for your...
