What a great place to stay spoiled by cheap beds. Rooms are very large. Bedroom separated by sliding doors. When you are on business you want to stay in a place where sleep is easy to come by and the lack of quality mattresses really let's this place down. The fridge is loud and next to the bed - tip...

The staff HAD VERY poor customer service. I was also discriminated against for getting a good deal on the cost of the room, for being young, having tattoos and for having a bottle of champagne with me.

We booked Quest Tauranga at short notice on our trip around NZ as we passed down through the North Island. We were travelling as a family and were very pleasantly surprise with the quality of accommodation. We booked a family suite, which was massive in size. Had all the amenities you need in a self-service apartment, including a washing machine/dryer,... More

We had a little studio style room with kitchen area and two rooms. Perfect for me and the family. I would have preferred to have a bath as well as a shower for the little ones. The hotel is very nicely located within walking distance to the main street and we enjoyed our time there.

Hotel in a central position, within walking distance to restaurants & waterfront.

I recently stayed at Quest Tauranga in a 3 bedroom apartment (room 149). I note I needed accommodation at short notice, and options were limited.
