Friendly, comfortable and cheaper than other motels. Petrie, the manager, went out of her way to help us look for accommodation at our next destination, she even called up for us to make the booking. We also got great tips on where to eat and what to do in and around the place. You get free wifi too. Thumbs up for this motel.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

We stayed for five nights over two visits, and would definitely revisit on future trips to Tauranga.
The unit was spacious, and well equipped, beds very comfortable and with dining table, chairs and lounge providing plenty of seating options.
The rear door (yes) opens onto a private lawned area with a swimming pool, and children's play area with trampoline.
Many free SkyTV channels are provided and wi-fi internet is completely free and unrestricted, which we really appreciated.
Being over 60yo we were offered a tariff discount, a nice surprise.
Mr Yoo and his staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, so we highly recommend this motel.

My stay in the Garden Court Motel in Tauranga was simply great. The ratio between price and quality of the accomodation was excellent.

But the most important thing was something really valuable: the human touch. I felt really at home there: my every request was fulfilled with a smile.

I'd rather to stay at that Motel than a 5 star hyperluxury resort anywhere....

Nothing special about this motel, very basic and is ok for a night stay while passing through. The rooms are quite old fashioned but we didn't pay very much for a two room apartment and so didn't expect much anyway.

didnt know much about tauranga so found this on the net. we went for a wedding and tried to find one as close to the venue as possible with two bdrm. was $180. per night for 4 people(2 adults 2 kids) but as we stayed 2 nights we got it for $150. very over priced it was old, small furnishings old and we came back to find the front door wide open and no one around with all our stuff in it! things like playground and spa virtually non existant(was addvertised as having these) for $180. i expect alot more.
