At the most central hotel in Tauranga, each earth-toned room has a balcony looking over the city, the harbor, or the port. It's a groovy little place with a big-city character, especially in terms of design and attitude. In winter, you'll be greeted with a cosy fire in the foyer (along with a complimentary drink). Fresh cooked breakfasts can be delivered to your room, for other meals guests are welcome to dine in the adjacent Tauranga Club. They can also use the gym facilities in the Club. Guest rooms and suites range from NZ$160 to NZ$300, with frequent online specials.
