Home away from home

Welcome to Colonial Court. Centrally located on 15th Ave, we are a five-minute drive into downtown Tauranga, a stones throw from QEII Centre, Squash Courts, Indoor Bowls, also Tauranga Hospital & Citizens Club. Plus we are just across the harbour from the world class beaches of Mount Maunganui.

We know what’s important when you’re travelling, which is why we offer a variety of modern accommodation options including free wifi, comfy beds, excellent showers and outdoor seating for each unit. Suited to solo travelers, couples and groups alike, our guests enjoy ground floor entry and plenty of parking with easy access to the road.

Because we know that you miss those little touches of comfort when you’re on the road, we make Colonial Court as home-like as possible. With a friendly welcome, local art adorning the walls, outdoor BBQ areas and a swimming pool, you’ll feel relaxed and at ease staying at our motel.

My Home away from Home

“One of the best Motor Inn's in Tauranga, I always stay there whilst in Tauranga which is quite often. (I have stayed in others but always come back to this one). Kris the owner is exceptional and couldn't be more helpful. The Motor Inn is clean and linen always changed (not like someother establishments). I can thoroughly recommend a visit.” - Alison R, Nov 2019

Excellent Owners

“The best thing about Colonial Court are the owners. The place is everything that others have already talked about. But the customer service from Kris is the X-factor. He goes way above the call of duty. Nothing is a hassle for this guy. He was able to accommodate 3 adults and an 8 girls basketball team attending the annual Hoop Nations Tournament at ASB Trust Arena, especially as it was last minute! Value for money. Highly recommended. We want to come here next year. Thanks for everything Kris. The team & management have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.” - Voldi, Nov 2019

Fantastic accommodation in Tauranga - spacious, modern and beautifully appointed

“What a wonderful four day stay in Tauranga for our school group of 3 adults and 6 children.The rooms at Colonial Court are spacious, immaculately clean and beautifully appointed. Everything that we needed was here - and more. Super comfy beds, great showers, lots of little extra touches.... Kris is a fantastic host and a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was a bother and Kris made our stay just perfect!” - Sandra, Oct 2019

Business Trip

“I have stayed here multiple times and have found this Motel is consistently excellent on so many levels. Well designed rooms & studios. Immaculately clean. Modern. Great value for money. Friendly attentive hosts. Easy to find. Close to the city. Quiet and private. Powerful showers. Spa baths. A home away from home!” - June 2019

Well-equipped, welcoming, nothing too much trouble

“We booked a single room, but shortly before we started our travels, had an email from Kris offering us a premium room at no extra cost - he'd had a cancellation. Of course, we accepted. The moment we walked into the office, Kris made us welcome, showed us the room, and offered suggestions for where we might eat. I had some problems using the motel's secure wi-fi connection, and Kris made sure I was able to connect securely (after getting expert advice from outside). Nothing was a problem, and it was obvious that Kris' concern for his guests' comfort and convenience outweighs most other considerations. Thank you, Kris - and to other travellers ,I strongly recommend the Colonial Court.” - February 2019
