You will find Bell Lodge located in a quiet, relaxing, and secure central Tauranga suburb. Our budget motels offer off street parking for peace of mind, and our cheap and comfy units are family friendly. With a grassed area in front of the motel rooms, Mum and Dad can sit on the deck and watch over the young ones playing happily in a safe environment. You can also enjoy our courtyard and barbecue area. Quality and price makes it easier to say yes, and stay perhaps one or two nights longer, so why not book your Tauranga Motels with us.

Family Units Bell Lodge Motel Each of our four motel units will sleep a total of 6 people with the ability to split the Super King bed so 6 individual people can be accommodated, or a family situation with Mum, Dad and four children. The main area has the Super King size bed and kitchen dining area, the smaller room has two bunk beds sleeping up to four people.

In line with keeping our motel units affordable, we keep things as simple as possible to keep the costs down. Our Units are self-catering, self-service, ensuring, though that we offer quality, clean, budget accommodation. So, for those on a budget looking to have money to spend on activities (either in Tauranga or at the Mount) rather than paying for expensive accommodation, you cannot go past Bell Lodge Motels in Tauranga.
