Reviewed 13 August 2012

Rocked up into town for one night only on a driving trip around NZ. Had a suite which was more than comfortable with two kids sharing the fold out sofa bed. Very central and walking distance to all shops and restaurants. The managers are very lovely and help full and made our short stay enjoyable. Would highly recommend for a cheapish short stay.

I have just returned from a business trip to Mt Maunganui and spent the night at the above motor inn. I found the room very clean,neat and tidy. Their Sky t.v. offered a good selection of channels and reception was perfect. The room had a stocked fridge and bar. The bath had the added feature of a jakusie as well as a shower.I would recommend them to anyone passing through.At $125 for the night ,excluding items from the fridge this was a reasonable room.

Clean, tidy and quiet! Friendly and helpful staff and your own reserved carpark! Just a short walk to pilot bay, the shops, restaurants and right next door to the cinema!! We only had a short stay but would definately have used the pool if we were there longer. I recommend staying here for all groups - family, couples, friends etc.

We stayed here in January 2012 and this place was fantastic. My young son, husband and sister in law and I all stayed in a suite of which my concern was it could be tight for space. But in fact we never felt like we were under each others feet, the room was of a very decent size. There were full cooking facilities available, but being in the middle of the main street we were spoilt for choice in options for eating. The beach is about a five minute walk away, and the park even closer. The owners were very accommodating, left us to our own devices but were always there if you had a question or wanted a recommendation. The pool was also nice and warm which was a welcome break from the cold sea! Stay here - it won't disappoint

This is a NZ motel not a hotel. I have done a lot of travelling in my time both nationally and internationally an rarely do I find a place that meets my needs so well. My job is to review cutomer service for a large group of corporate companies.The service is friendly and efficient. The rooms are of a good size with modern decor and spotless. They have every travellers needs covered. The complex has many extras from a wide range of TV channels, DVD player, pool to several local restaurants metres away where you can have the meal cost added to your room bill. They provide full breakfast on request from their kitchen and a daily newspaper. The local picture theatre and a diary are also just metres away. It's location in the middle of the town centre makes many attractions like a wonderful beach and a good range of shops within walking distance. The proprietors have great local knowledge and provide free maps with welcome assistance to those who find map reading a challenge.
However, what really makes this place stand out is the attention to detail. There are helpful hints/notes everywhere like a full list of TV channels on the TV so you don't have to look it up in the information book. I have stayed here biannually for several years and the consistency of excellent service means I continue to return. Although I travel for business it would be up there as a destination point for any tourists, honeymooners etc.
