    Don’t stay here!

    This was a huge disappointment. The place is old, smelly, dirty carpets, grungy and on a major roadway that is noisy all night long. The bathroom smelled like body odour. Signage said to put your head in the thermal pools and then the compendium said not to. It was the worst place I stayed in our whole 3 week New Zealand holiday!

    Nice, family friendly motel on the outskirts of Tauranga. Great pool and the private spa for our room was great after the fun run we completed. Good value for money. A little tired but perfectly fine. Main bed was hard but shower pressure was amazing.
