good well equipped rooms and we had a cottage with verandah and barbecue which was pleasant but the road was close and the town was not, so if you like eating out and having a few drinks, probably not the best place however with a car ,self catering, this is a reasonable option

AshGroveMotel, Owner at Ash Grove Motel, responded to this review

We are very disappointed with this review and feel that a response is necessary as follows:- All our advertising emphasises our location a few minutes drive from Paihia township. We also advertise the fact that as part of our customer service we offer a free courtesy service to all our guests. All anyone has to do is ask, and we... More

We loved our stay at the Ashgrove Boutique Motel. Wendy and Fred went out of their way to make our stay memorable. When we arrived we were given freshly baked muffins! We stayed in a cottage style accomodation #7 and it was like being in our own home. It was very spacious and had all the comforts we could want.... More

I chose this motel based on tripadvisor reviews. Not too disappointed, but certainly don't feel this one deserves the number one spot. It has a lot of pluses - very very clean, studio is quite spacious, and their pool and BBQ facilities seem to be well looked after and used by people. Bed and pillow are comfortable. The owners were... More

We stayed at this motel at the end of a 4 week tour around both islands and it exceeded our expectations. It's a short drive to Paihai town where there are plenty of places to eat and shop. Wendy & Fred, the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Wendy organised a day trip for us to the Hole in the... More

Stayed for just a few nights. The accomodation was clean and well decorated and we did like the lavender scented everything! Some minor negatives: The room we were in was a little small with not much storage - only two bedside cabinets and a single wardrobe. The patio was cute but found that sitting out there we had little privacy... More

We are from England and travelled around for two weeks staying in various hotels in this price range. This was definitely one of the best.

My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights and this was our first accommodation in NZ. We were overwhelmed by the quality of the room No: 8 which was very private and beautifully appointed. Wendy and Fred gave a warm welcome and were very helpful. Wendy helped arrange a trip to 90 mile beach and an island tour... More

This was our first visit to NZ and our first motel experience. It set the standard for the rest of our holiday. So much thought had been given to the guests' comfort that we could not have asked for anything more than was provided. We stayed in the Honeymoon Cottage which was spacious and extremely well furnished and had its... More

My wife and I and our teenage daughter had a fabulous week here at Ash Grove in unit number 6, which had a private outside area. We spent some while choosing the accommodation on the internet and were thrilled with the holiday overall, wishing it could have been longer. The short drive out of Paihia was no problem at all....

Excellent place to stay with very friendly hosts. Rooms were immaculate as was the outside area including the pool. Only a 5 min drive to the centre of Paihia, Ash Grove's location is perfect to get away from it all but also be near enough to the action. Fantastic BBQ facilities,.......can't really praise them enough. I would definitely recommend this... More
