Super great location. Cleanest hotel in Mt Maunganui and i have stayed at them all. Off street parking and quiet large rooms. Only issue i have is the pillows are clean but rock hard. A hotel wide pillow upgrade is recommended. Ill stay back there but ill take my pillow untill they upgrade . Super safe and amazing hosts. Great price too.
