We had an overnight here; the rooms aren't big however are comfortable enough. Just try and avoid room 4 - as there is plenty of street noise and pedestrian noise as restaurant and bar goers find their way home. Not sure $170 is fair value however life is a choice and I knew the price before I booked

We stayed a night in a 2 bedroom family suite. They are all ground floor. Motel is extremely well located and we didn't use the car the whole time we were there - pools, food and beach all within an easy walk. The room was funkily decorated and in pristine condition with all amenities you would expect and more -...

Great location, great apartment- we'll be back. Loved the beach at Mt Maunganui & the cafes/restaurants. Mission Belle is 5 mins to the beach & less to the shopping/cafe strip. Lovely & clean, comfortable beds.

Absolutely beautiful, mordern and cosy motel. The room was like a little home. Well equipped and nicely furnished. Very polite and helpful staff. They even gave us a little bottle of milk for coffee/tea. We hoped we stayed there longer. Beautiful surroundings, good place to stay at least couple of days. Lovely beach nearby, many places to eat. If staying...

Great central Mt Maunganui location. This is our second stay and we have found it to be a good base for the Tri Chicks triathlon that my wife and daughter take part in. We had unit 10 this time for five of us (me and my wife, adult daughter, adult son and his fiancé) and it was a good size....

I must have been coming here for over 20 years. I remember my brother's company did the wiring when they originally built the place. There may be better places to stay in The Mount, but this place is always very good, the staff are great, and it is as close to the main drag and restaurants as it is possible...

I travel a lot for work and I've got 3 accomodations I always look forward to staying at and this is one of them. Beautiful modern and tastefully furnished rooms, great bathrooms, spotlessly clean, fantastic location with ample free parking and Nate at reception is simply sensational.

Travelling with the family we stayed overnight at the mission belle. Lovely recently modernised motel in the heart of mount mauganui. Room had all you need with brand new appliances and furniture. Very comfortable stay and the host was really friendly and helpful. I certainly would recommend this lovely motel as its well appointed and well priced.

Lets start with the positives. The Motel is in a good part of the Mount. It is easily accessible and walking distance to pretty much everything that one would need. The room was exceptionally clean and well cared for. The staff were friendly and polite. The negatives are that there are a lot of pubs/restaurants behind the motel. This meant...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mission Belle is a family run motel in Mount Maunganui (Mauao). The Belle's hosts are Cathy and Ray who came over from England in 2008 and fell in love with the place as soon as they saw it. One of their favourite countries in the world is Spain and because it reminded them so much of the spanish buildings they were used on the coast it seemed to be the perfect scenario - a little piece of Spain in New Zealand - what more could they want??!! Unfortunately it wasn't available for them to own at that time but as soon as it came on the market, they snapped it up! They've been in the motel since December 2011 and have so far loved every minute of it. There is a sizable barbeque area and various seating areas dotted around the property, with or without shade and they have improved on the landscaping. The rooms were originally decorated with a "spanish' feel about them (hence the name) and now Cathy and Ray feel that updating the rooms is high on the agenda of plans that they have for the place. It is ideally located, close to all amenities that the Mount has to offer - fantastic cafes, amazing restaurants, and the beautiful stores that are all very appealing. With only a couple of minutes walk to the quiet Pilot Bay beach and a five minute walk to the main beach, there really is no need of a pool! Having said that, the Hot Pools are at the base of Mauao and are easily accessible with a ten to fifteen minute walk from the Belle. A beautiful walk around Mauao where you can take in some fantastic sights, or a more energetic or if preferred, a slow climb up to the summit will be an effort well rewarded with the magnificent views over the town and the sights of Tauranga. ... more   less
