I wish this was my home! Beautifully decorated, superbly comfortable bed, a water view, fully equipped kitchen, newly renovated throughout. Just lovely. Athol and Lorraine are so welcoming and helpful. It is convenient for central Tauranga and such a quiet comfortable place to relax and unwind. We will definitely, definitely be back and highly recommend it.

Hi Pat, Wow, thanks for the huge compliments. It was great meeting and hosting you. We do love our quiet cul-de-sac on the waters edge of Tauranga's inner harbour. You highlighted all the reasons we chose to buy and renovate this old grand lady. Waters edge, quiet, easy walk to town. The renovations started 3 years ago with new carpets,...

This is the best motel in the area given our budget although we did not get to book the upper level rooms. The host is very friendly to introduce what you can do in Tauranga. Certainly made you feel home. Stayed one night and the room was newly renovated so everything is good. Especially impressed by the eletric bed warmer...

We stayed in a recently renovated unit and it was extremely comfortable with extra touches such as an angora throw ver the master bed. Very quiet yet very close to central Tauranga. Close to waterfront. Would definitely return!!

Hi there, Thanks for the lovely review - we so appreciate that some some guests recognize the little touches that make a stay more memorable.

We stumbled on this place while looking for another. And such a pleasant surprise as it is even nicer than the place we stayed in last year. Beautiful newly renovated place with lovely outlook.
