A friend and myself stayed at this facility and we were happy with our choice, later in the afternoon the gentleman in the unit beside us commented that the assistance behind the desk had made the comment that she was sorry that she had to put him beside the two guys on motorcycles, and hoped that they did not coarse...

I stayed at the Pacific Motor Inn for my last few days in New Zealand, en route to my flight out of Auckland in late Jan 2017. I really do have to mention the owners, Kelvin & Lorraine, who are 2 fabulous people. Firstly, my bus into Mount Maunganui was running late on my arrival....then the bus broke down, which...

When traveling to New Zealand and having to change plans quite quickly over Christmas, Lorraine and Kelvin couldn't have been more helpful. The accommodation in room 4 was nothing short of superb! The beds so comfortable, the rooms spacious and very clean. The kitchenette was brilliantly equipped and the bathroom and spa bath lovely. The facilities were excellent but what...

We had a really good room nice and spacious with a bath plus shower, parking just outside. The owners were really nice. The price also included Continental breakfast. We where very close to the town center and also not far from the beach and Mount Mangonui. It was a really nice place to stay also handy for restaurants.

Unfortunately we can only rate this place 5 out of 5 - it should be 6 out of 5. Due to a fire in our home we found ourselves staying at Pacific Motor Inn for 9 weeks. The hosts, Kelvin and Lorraine made us feel truly at home, they asked frequently if there was anything they could do for us....

Stayed last night - Owners were really friendly with heaps of helpful local knowledge. Room was quite basic but clean and warm. TV wasn't working too well with only a few channels, was nice and peaceful at night. Great location to walk to bars/restaurants/the beach.

Room was very clean and tidy. The new owners were very friendly and nice to chat to. They had only taken over running the place 3 weeks ago when we visited. We found the room to be comfortable and fairly quiet. Given its location you have to expect a little noise. Breakfast was basic and nice. There were a couple...

I booked via an internet site that claimed this property was 4.5 stars, and this claim was subsequently repeated in the Guest Compendium, but the NZ rating people, Qualmark, only list it as 4 stars, and I quite frankly wouldn't rate it more than 3 stars for reasons that follow. When Qualmark took over the rating system from AA in...

We are new owners of the Pacific Motor Inn, but have taken many of your comments on board. We have made many changes since the ownership change and whilst outside noise is not something we can control as the Mount is a very busy place, we are able to add to a guest stay in many other ways. We have...
