quality accommodation centrally located in Tauranga, you need look no further than Academy Motor Inn, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. The coastal Bay of Plenty region offers a fantastic base for those exploring the central North Island, with easy road access to the Coromandel Peninsula (just over an hour), Rotorua (just 45 minutes inland) and further on to the snowy peaks and deep lakes of the Taupo region. Hamilton is also a short drive (just one hour and thirty minutes).

We are situated in an easy to find location on the corner of 15th Avenue and Cameron Road where State Highway 2 becomes 2A. It is only a 5 minute drive to the centre of Tauranga City - with a large shopping area with its restaurants and cafe culture alongside the beautiful harbour.
A 15 minute drive takes you to the world famous surf beach at Mt Maunganui where there is a range of water-based activities and marine adventures, plus an enjoyable easy walk around the Mount (Mauao) or for the fitter person, up to the top for 360 degree views of the Tauranga area.

We offer an elevated and spacious conference room with an adjacent kitchen and two toilets for your group’s convenience. Conference equipment including a 50" Smart tv and full catering is also available.


Situated just minutes from a variety of shopping, restaurants and cafes, and walking distance from Tauranga’s hospital, schools, Historic Village and Citizens Club, Academy Motor Inn is the perfect accommodation choice. Just a few minutes down the road is the Waikarearoa Estuary walkway, this is a unique 9.5km walkway that meanders through tidal mangroves. All ages and abilities can enjoy the winding and flat boardwalks.
