“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Really enjoyed our stay. Very welcoming, helpful staff. Spotlessly clean, newly decorated, spacious unit, well equipped. Excellent value. Fantastic location on ocean side water front, will definitely come back. Highly recommend.

An Excellent place to stay, spotlessly clean. Friendly service. The room was huge, could easily sleep 7, so for 3 of us it was roomy and good value for money too. We were able to walk to town as it's close to everything. Highly recommended.

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.
