We booked a cottage at the Ash Grove Boutique Hotel, but when we arrived we received an upgrade to a family suite. This had a separate bedroom, living and dining areas and a nice kitchen. Lots of room - wish we had more than one night there. The pool area was beautiful with lots of flowers around. It was very... More

Stayed for five nights at Ash Grove. The cottage unit we had was like a hotel suite in a five star. Beautiful french doors to a charming backyard, complete with an outdoor grill and swimming pool. Laundry room for your threads and a whole library of DVDs to play on the big screen tv in your room. Kitchen was excellent... More

We enjoyed three nights at Ash Grove Motel. The units were very clean and well equipped and being 3 km from Paihia we were able to enjoy peace and quiet. The owners were very helpful and gave us very good suggestions for spending our time in the beautiful Bay of Islands. I would be happy to recommend this motel to... More

We enjoyed two nights at the Ash Grove four weeks ago. It is between the village of Paihia and Haruru Falls and very easily accessible to both. the owners, Carl and Stuart were friendly and accommodating. They gave us great suggestions on places to eat. I like the fact that there is an on-site laundry near the office. The rooms... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant 4 nights here. It was well equipped, clean and spacious. It is tucked away some 3 km from the town in its own quiet corner. The pool and the garden are a bonus. Would recommend it to other couples.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Travelling as a family of four and two couples we booked early to avoid disappointment, and were allocated three adjacent studios overlooking the pool. The rooms were comfortably furnished and roomy. The kitchen areas and bathrooms were well equipped and the everything was spotlessly clean. Carol and Stuart were excellent hosts. Stuart had met...

We really enjoyed staying here. Clean comfortable and extremely helpful hosts Carol and Stuart were always available to answer questions and give helpful advise. The cooking facilities were clean and easy to work with. The crockery gorgeous. The cottage has a front and back lanai (porch) which each got either the morning or afternoon sun. Very Eco friendly, organic soaps... More

This motel is a great example of an excellent price quality relationship. I can strongly recommend you to stay here. Clean, very friendly help, little kitchen support. The street is no big deal, you can hardly hear it. Lovely little pool for the summer. A little out of town, you need a car, but it means less of mass tourism,... More

We stayed here for two nights on our way up from Auckland to the north via the Bay of Islands. The accommodation was most comfortable, furnished to a good standard, very clean and just a few minutes' drive from Paihia itself. There was a nice kitchen area and good bathroom. Outside our room was a small sitting area and beyond... More
