Many motels are reluctant for school sports teams to stay, however Martin and Jacqui recently welcomed the school hockey team I manage. They sorted suitable rooms to accommodate the team and management. I was delighted when Jacqui saw me about to use the guest laundry for the team's playing gear and offered to put it through their commercial machine for a small charge. It was folded and ready for me to collect shortly afterward.

Whilst not the cheapest accommodation for a team, I highly recommend Bethlehem Motor Inn for any team looking to stay in the area. Martin and Jacqui welcome and look after their guests.

I would certainly return with the team.

Thanks Alastair for taking time out to post this review - we really appreciate it and can only repeat that it was a pleasure hosting you and the hockey teams. The students all behaved brilliantly and Jacqui was only too pleased to help out with the laundry - we hope you enjoyed the tournament as well as your stay with us. Look forward to hosting you again next year.Kindest regards.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Perfectly located for Mills Reef Winery, Bethlehem shopping centre, and for Waipuna Hospice (reason for our stay). We had an executive studio with spa bath. Room superbly clean and spacious, spa bath great to relax in and shower was excellent pressure. Quite a step up to get into the bath, tho this didn't bother us. Room was quiet, although on last night wedding guests did party-on into the wee hours of the morning. Certainly had no road noise. Wifi free but need to get code daily. The hosts were absolutley brillant, accommodating our every need. Highly recommend this Motor Inn, and would certainly stay again.

we booked two rooms for our family (2 adults + 13 yr old in a one-bedroom) and studio unit for 2 adults attending a family event. Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. Lovely quiet units with little or no traffic noise. Rooms were very clean. Would have liked a TV in the bedroom of the 1-bedroom unit but otherwise could not fault. Owners very friendly and changed our room when they saw my father was in a wheelchair so he could have a room with wet area shower. Nice touch. Quick trip in car to nearby petrol station, supermarket and takeaways.

Nice location, handy to small collection of shops. Not too far from the city. Executive Studio unit did not meet expectations. It was clean, but rather tired. Shower over a particularly high spa bath was not the easiest to use and not to our liking. Parking at door was very convenient. Free Wifi was an added bonus.

Thank you for your comments and next time you stay we would recommend reserving a studio with a walk-in shower as this is easier to negotiate for some of our guests who may not want to have a spa bath. We are pleased that the location and cleanliness of our motel ticked the right boxes for you and look forward to being of service to you again.

Spent 2 nights at the Bethlehem Motor Inn recently while visiting Tauranga to celebrate our Uncle's 90th birthday. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The room was a nice size and very clean. The bed wasn't to my liking but it was a minor issue. Also not keen on shower over bath but again a minor issue.
Overall lovely property run by lovely people. Would certainly recommend this property if you are visiting Tauranga.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed our stay with us and next time you visit we recommend that you reserve a studio unit which differs from the executive studio only by reason of the fact that instead of the latter's spa bath with shower combo there is simply a wet room so you walk straight into the bathroom with a wc. vanity and shower curtain across a large shower area. This is much easier to negotiate but having said that some guests prefer to relax in a hot spa bath so we are happy to be able to offer both options. Thank you for your review and we look forward to having you visit us again soon.

Stayed for 3 nights with my Mum & 6 month old in a 2 bedroom suite. The facilities are wonderful and clean, and the suites very spacious - more than enough room to cater for a family of 4. The separate lounge and dining area contains a pull out sofa, single arm chair, coffee table and dining table. The kitchenette is well equipped with double hob, bar fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and utensils. The main bedroom has a queen size bed, with two singles in the second. We booked a port a cot for my little one which was setup with linen included, in the main bedroom. The bathroom is enormous with separate shower, huge 2 person spa bath and good size vanity.

The laundry facilities are lovely and new, with powder available to purchase if required. Very reasonable at $2 per wash or dry/load.

The ground are very tidy and there is a huge grassy area out the back for the kids to run around, and a beautiful citrus tree, which unfortunately we didn't get to try. There is also a swimming pool for use.

Wireless broadband is available for use - just need to get the username and password from reception. There is a 100mB limit. Ours expired before the end of or stay, but Martin happily have us new login credentials.

The motor inn is within walking distance to a major supermarket, takeaway outlets and shopping centre with chemist etc. so you are well catered for with these facilities. The cafe in the garden centre across the road does great coffee and lovely food.

Martin and Jacqui are wonderful hosts who are only too happy to help when asked. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you both for your wonderful hospitality.

Wow! What a lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay here and have taken time out to describe in such a detailed way what you liked about our Motel. It was particulalrly pleasing to know that your baby slept all through the night which gave you both time to chill after your trip. We really enjoyed having you here and we hope you come back and stay with us again for another break. Kindest regards Martin & Jacqui.

Arrived late morning and inquired about 4 nights accommodation. Were shown a studio with Spa bath nut the owner saw my wife with a walking stick and suggested that another unit may be better for us so showed us one with a wet floor bathroom (no stepping into the shower) ideal for us. very clean and serviced each day and warm & cosy. A fresh user name & password every day for free WiFi all made for a first rate stay. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Somerset Cottage meals very expensive, Mills Reef much better if open. Botanix cafe & Eden cafe...

Thank you so much for this review. We're pleased you popped in and stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed the fact that the unit was "warm and cosy" as we believe a warm friendly welcome should be matched with a very comfortable stay. It makes our day to know that you felt looked after and we hope to see you again soon.
