Disappointment in Tauranga
This motel is in definite need of an upgrade. The furniture is "tired" and very dated. The air freshener used was overpowering all our stay. One good point was the shower - good water pressure. Not value for money.

We won't be going back there!
Staff inefficient and incompetent. Gave us wrong room when we arrived. Had to repack and change room on second day. Took ages to check out due to problems with Eftpos machine which the manager blamed on my credit card.

Pet friendly
The room was comfortable and clean. Most importantly they welcomed our little furry one Benji. Even Benji was very comfortable in the place. The location was also good.
