We found the motel easily and checked in. Offered a small bottle of milk, which we thought was nice and is apparently a New Zealand thing. The room was just right with a mini kitchen. The motel is within easy walking distance of the main street in Paihia, about 15 min. Lovely views on the bay. Very comfortable bed.

Great place to stay, checked in slightly early and this wasn't a problem. We had awesome views over the bay and the room was very clean and nicely decorated with everything we needed. Hosts were very helpful. We had a very pleasant stay.

We were helped to this motel by an I-site adviser. On arrival we were given fresh milk for tea (bliss!) and lots of helpful info on local sights and events. When asked what we like to eat we were helped to a really good nearby restaurant. We were further helped to choose our trip round the bay, other things to... More

Very welcoming check-in with loads of information provided. Nicely appointed room with comfortable bed, and best of all, an excellent view. Chairs and tables are provided outside the room to admire the view. There is a barbecue by the pool (which was way too "brisk" for my liking). I really loved the cleanliness and the cheeriness of the cleaning crew.... More

A great location opposite the water with an easy and enjoyable stroll to/from the village and restaurants and ready access to local early morning walks. Particular virtues of the motel are its cleanliness (absolutely spotless) and attention to detail such as good information on local restaurants and activities, provision of kitchen detergent etc and spacious rooms. We were not bothered... More

Hi Chris and Anne, thank you so much for your wonderful review. Our great location with the beach across the road and an easy stroll to the village is a big bonus for sure.

Comfortable, clean room with nice amenities. Warm welcome from host. A bit noisy, but earplugs provided. Internet didn't work well for us, but didn't ask for assistance. Enjoyed jacuzzi and watched kids enjoying pool in spite of chilly weather. Easy walk to town.

Clean, comfortable and spacious. The owners were lovely and very welcoming. They were able to give us great advice to get our car serviced. It was close to town and the beach, good views. The location meant loud traffic early in the morning though (although there was a car show in the area at the time, which may have influenced... More
