Memphis makes you feel at home right away. My daughter and I had a twin room with a shared bathroom on the first floor. Everything was always very clean. Our room had an an ocean view, and right outside our door was a porch area that faced the ocean with a table and two chairs. The shared living area has a beautiful glass view of the garden in the back yard. The back yard also has outdoor seating and a table. There are so many places to sit and enjoy this house. Kitchen is well equipped and every room is assigned an area to store things in the refrigerator along with a separate area for other groceries. Memphis is very welcoming and is wonderful to talk with. We loved having conversations with other guests in the kitchen area, meet so many great people. There are two grocery stores within a few blocks and a laundromat as well. There are two house cats that enjoy the guests but they are out of the house most of the time We used this as our base to tour the area and took day trips to Rotorua and other areas. Truly felt like we were coming home every night. If you are looking for a four star hotel this is not meant for that, this is meant to be a very clean and affordable place to stay and I would definitely recommend staying here.
- 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
