Only stayed one night. But very impressed with clean and tidy unit. Although interior a bit dated all very presentable. Good location being close to mount shops and restaurants. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here rather than with family and we are so pleased we chose Westhaven Motel. The room was so 'huge' we rang other family members to come and stay but unfortunately they couldn't make it. The service was great, prompt, friendly and easy to approach. The room was clean and fresh smelling and looked like to had just been re-decorated, very tastefully I might add. We will definitely stay again and will highly recommend to anyone wanting somewhere to stay.

My friend and I stayed for one night here during a road trip, and we were very pleased to have come across this motel.

The outer facade and entrance way gives the impression of a dated motel nestled amongst the lavish hotels and apartments in the wealthy Mt Maunganui area. However we soon discovered that this motel is definitely a hidden gem, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to fellow travellers who are looking for an option that is affordable, comfortable and reliable.

The proprietor was friendly and welcoming. The room was very spacious, freshly painted, new carpet and a new full sized refrigerator. The size of the room would also accommodate a larger family group. The beds in the living room doubled as couches, although not ideal to sit and watch TV on, they would serve the purpose if a family was using the room.

The bathroom was big, and the shower pressure was adequate. The complementary Wifi was excellent with a good strong signal.

Just outside, and across the road, is Tauranga harbour. It's the perfect vantage point to view cruise ships coming and going if you're lucky enough to have timed your visit right.

We enjoyed our stay, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

My husband and I have just spent two nights in an upstairs unit overlooking the sea. What a fantastic spot. We cannot fault the accomodation, it was spotless and very comfortable and will most certainly be returning for a longer stay.

Friendly welcoming owners, spotless unit, great location. In easy walking distance to swimming pool and walking around the mount. Easy to find, noticed that they have painted and carpeted, the beds where comfortable. Loved the shower, toilet and wash basin easy to share the unit. Easy parking.

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, nice hotel to stay in the Mount, this is it. We stayed here last year and were so impressed with the changes the owners have made. New paint carpet and beds. It is fantastic value for money. It is a great option for families with kitchen and multiple bed options in the rooms.

Westhaven is in a fantastic location just a short walk from the Mount. Just cross the road to the Bay. We were in unit 6. This unit is downstairs at the front with views of Pilot Bay. The decoration is dated and the room was a bit crowded with the queen bed and single bed together in there. However, a good option for families with young children. The bed was average. There were many beds available although we were travelling as a couple, we were upgraded and moved to that room. The shower is a bit small but good enough. very spacious kitchen although we did not use it. It seemed to have everything one would need to prepare a good meal. We only stayed one night and had to leave early the next morning so we did not get to enjoy the best of Pilot Bay. Room was exactly as portrayed on the website.

Good option if you prefer views and location. Very clean and tidy.
