Everything was ok. Very well kept room, good view - somewhat tedious stairs to room on the first floor -especially with the luggage of a 7-weeks-journey. Very good starting point for trips to the most unbelievably beautiful islands. The beach in town is not really overwhelming. The main supermarket has closed down - you only find out when you stand...

An excellent, well priced establishment with kitchen facilities. The property overlooks the Bay with the upstairs rooms all having lovely views. The downstairs rooms also have water views. Kitchens are excellent and a bonus as restaurants in Pahia seemed quite expensive. Beds very comfortable. Spotlessly clean.

We stayed 3 nights, Outstanding views, close to restaurants and beach. Room and facilities good and clean. Very relaxing. Only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. Our fault not the motel. Plenty to do. Take a trip to Cape Reinga and 90 mile beach, superb!

This was a wonderful place to stay excellent accommodation, beautiful part of the world. Take a trip on the ferry to Russell or if you have a car visit the beautiful beaches and many other attractions nearby. Or just stay in Paihia and relax on the beautiful Beach.
