When looking for a place to stay in Tauranga I was drawn to Quest due to the photos. The rooms looked huge, with a spa bath and a balcony. I booked and was very excited for a weekend away. On arrival, reception was very pleasant, she gave me instructions to the car park and then I set off. We didn't even attempt to park as we had bikes on the back of the ute and the entrance was tiny. When we got to our room I was very confused, my one bedroom apartment, with a separate lounge area was in fact one big room. WE had to draw pull across panels to separate the room from the lounge (not at all what I wanted or what I saw in the photos advertised online). We then stepped out to see the balcony, it was legitimately a foot in width and about a meter and a half in legnth. After concluding that our balcony wasn'rt really a fun place to hang out we set off to find the spa. When we got there we discovered a note on the door saying the spa was out of order due to lack of use and it advised us to use our own spa baths in our room - only problem was our plug didn't work and when I wen to reception at 6:50pm it was already closed though it is said to be manned from 7am - 7pm. I would not at all stay again at a rate of $175.00 a night, it was an absolute rip off.
