Tauranga's most affordable, quality, central accommodation option is the ASURE Harbour View Motel. Location is one of the most important aspects to consider when travelling for business or pleasure to Tauranga. ASURE Harbour View Motel is one of the few central Tauranga Motel accommodation options within a short walk to the city centre. Should you wish to launch our “free” kayaks, we are located 40 meters off the water’s edge of Tauranga’s inner harbour. The popular Memorial Park & Queen Elizabeth Youth & Sports Centre is just 400 meters away, also home to a heated swimming pool (summer), children’s playground and miniature railway.

Central to Tauranga Restaurants, Supermarket and the popular Waterfront restaurant precinct of Strand Street are just a 5-10 minute walk from the Motel. ASURE Harbour View Motel is known for the efficient and friendly service of your hosts Bronwyn and Kathie at their newly renovated and charming establishment.

We are proud members of ASURE Accommodation Group.

In true Kiwi spirit, the ASURE Accommodation Group was set up with solid values by passionate people to ensure all guests fully experience its fantastic hospitality.
