For more options, try the Hamurana Lodge and the Ramada Resort Rotorua Marama. They are 30 kilometres and 30 kilometres respectively from the main center. If these two don't suit you, try the Trinity Wharf Tauranga or the Terraces at Ocean Beach.
If you'd like to check out some nearby localities, consider Tauranga and Rotorua. Journey 17 kilometres to the northwest from Te Puke and you'll discover Tauranga. That said, Rotorua is 40 kilometres to the south. Accommodations in Tauranga include the Hotel on Devonport and Bennetts Thermal Pools Motor Inn. Rotorua choices are the Peppers On The Point - Lake Rotorua and Koura Lodge.
