We fell in love with this charming little place the minute we stepped into it. The rooms were spotlessly clean and each room has a different theme.
There is a common kitchen and living room for all share. Kitchen is huge enough for more than 6 people to use at the same time.
Location wise, it is perfect. Within walking distance to the shops and restaurants.
Ample free parking in front of the place.
Charming and helpful host, Memphis who made us feel at home.
Price wise, it is not as cheap as other motels / b & b at NZD100 for a twin sharing room but it is well worth the price.
Beds are soft and comfy with a quiet neighbourhood. We slept really well here.
Overall, it was a good stay. Shame we had to leave by 6 am to Auckland.
Would be good if the bathrooms have a shelf to put our toiletries for the shower instead of placing them on the floor. Also, a shower cap would help.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Taiparoro House is a boutique-style private guesthouse located in the heart of Tauranga city, an easy ten minute walk from the city centre. Overlooking Tauranga harbour, in a quiet residential street, it is one of the few remaining heritage properties in the Tauranga area. Taiparoro was built in 1882 in a traditional Victorian villa style and is a Category II heritage listed building with the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. Over the years Taiparoro has been lovingly maintained, and restored. It has been specifically designed as guest accommodation with five bedrooms including a harbour view suite, all with ensuite bathrooms, and although it still maintains many of its beautiful period features, it has been updated to a high standard with a more modern contemporary theme and furnishings. ... more less
