Hi there Slonce 13, Thanks for your great review and kind words. Being an older motel we have apartment style rooms which are a little more roomy than usual. Glad we had great summer weather and our location which is in a quiet cul-de-sac just off the water's edge of Tauranga's inner harbour, most guests comment on that. The Cape Cod style renovations that have been completed now have proved very popular with all our new guests. We hope to host you again if you are ever back in Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty. Tauranga can be a great base with it's beaches, walks and restaurants to use as a launch to visit Mount Maunganui, Whakatane, White Island, Rotorua, Lake Rotoiti, Okere Falls, Katikati, Waihi, most of these highlights ( all within 20 mins to an hours drive) and within the and Bay of Plenty region. Trust you enjoy the rest of your trip exploring New Zealand. Kind Regards, Athol & Lorraine

Hi Jill, Thanks for staying with us and for your kind words. We will pass your feedback on to our housekeeping staff who are also part of your hosting team and who take pride in preparing the rooms for guests each day. So glad you enjoyed the new "Cape Cod" style makeover & renovations. If you come back to Tauranga we would love the privilege of hosting you on your next stay in the Bay of Plenty. We love our location on the edge of Tauranga's inner harbour which gives the feeling of being away from it all but is only a few minutes walk up the restaurants and waterfront. kind regards, Athol & Lorraine

Hi Natassja & Rayden, Thank you for staying with us at Harbour View Motel. Thank you so much for your kind words about your stay and your input on the newly renovated rooms. We will pass on your feedback to our housekeeping staff as well who try to ensure that your room was properly prepared each day of your stay. We so love our location on the waters edge of the harbour so it's great to know that you enjoyed that as much as we do. Next time hopefully you can get to use our free kayaks, stand-up paddle board and mountain bikes. However, you will just need a few more days to fit everything in, we won't mind, :-) . We look forward to hosting you again when you return. Kind Regards, Athol & Lorraine

Hi Kellie, Thank you for choosing to stay with us. You highlighted one of the features most of our guests have loved, being the location which is in a quiet harbour side cul-de-sac and yet close to shops and restaurants within an easy reach to Tauranga city centre, shops and restaurants. Will pass on your feedback and compliments to our housekeeping staff about the clean rooms, they take pride in their work and in preparing the rooms for each new guest. We trust you had a comfortable trip home and should you be back "across the ditch" sometime we would love to host you again in our beautiful Bay of Plenty. kind regards. Athol & Lorraine

"We stayed in room 2 which was ideal for our little family of 4."
"Pick a room facing the water"
"All are good but if you are after a view pick an upstair one a few dollars dearer. We paid 160 NZ per night and fully worth it."
"Second story will give you beautiful view of the beautifull harbor Rooms downstairs very well appointed plenty of room,"
"Room 2 is the pick of the place, Superking Bed and Water Views."
