Positive Reviews

Great pool area

Visitors often rave about the motel's outdoor pool area in their reviews. It is, impressed guests report, lovely and warm with a pleasant area to sit and relax, and a separate place where one can enjoy a cookout on the barbecue. Having towels provided is deemed a nice little bonus too.

Top-notch hospitality

Reviews are packed with comments highlighting how friendly and accommodating the owners and staff here are. Travellers say those working at this motel typically go out of their way to ensure visitors enjoy a stress-free stay.

Handy location ticks plenty of boxes

As well as being close to the shops and beach, guests like the fact this property is within such easy striking distance of Baypark Stadium and Arena. Having Mount Maunganui volcano a short drive away is, visitors note, a big plus too.

Negative Reviews

Ventilation could be better

Reviewers identify the lack of any air conditioning facilities in the rooms as something that needs to be addressed. Guests complain that it can get hot in the accommodations at times (especially during summer) and one can't leave the windows open because of bugs.

Some noise

It has been noted that noise from both within and outside of the hotel premises can be an issue at times. Travellers say traffic from the nearby road, and the sound of kids playing in the pool, can be heard a little too easily in some units.
