Thank you Wendy and Fred for making our stay in the Bay of Islands a wonderful experience. From arriving to fresh muffins to the excellent advice regarding who to tour with and where to go (and spot on weather forecasting), our stay was perfect. As hosts, we couldn't have hoped for or found better and loved the fact that you... More

Had a wonderful stay at the Ash Grove. Wendy and Fred are very helpful and welcoming. We had the honeymoon cottage - is away from the pool, kind of the last unit, so quiet and kind of on its own. Everything was spotless and clean. There is a DVD library in the office to borrow if you want to watch... More

We stayed here for 2 nights when we first arrived in NZ. Arrived late at night after a 26 hour flight and were welcomed with home made muffins and a gorgeous room. The room was spotless and the English owners were very friendly and gave great advice. We booked some tours from the front dest which were fantastic - especially... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at this motel and were very pleased with our choice. The room was immaculately clean,the decoration was modern and the welcome very friendly. They have a lovely pool but unfortunately it was not warm enough to try it. The only very slight quibble would be that it is slightly out of town but... More

My wife spent 2 days at Paihia with an overnight stay at Ash Grove. We wish we would have planned more time! Wendy & Fred were very friendly and gracious and keep a very well kept/maintained, clean motel. Our room was well decorated and more than big enough for my wife and I. Though not in downtown Paihia, you are... More

stayed 4 nights early March 09. Owners were very appreciative of our business and in return gave us service beyond reproach. Excellent facilities, very quiet and the garden was lovely to rest in. Our most comfortable stay in all of N.Z.

This is a wonderful place to stay! The rooms are very spacious and impeccably clean and attractively furnished. Our room had a beautiful bedroom, large living room and a fully equipped kitchen. It is about 4-5 km from the center of town which I think was a real plus. It was so nice coming back to this beautifully landscaped area... More

Wendy and Fred gave us a warm welcome to their motel which has a scenic location in the hills just a few minutes drive from the waterfront. The rooms have been beautifully refurbished. We stayed in a studio chalet which opened out onto the landscaped gardens and giving easy access to the swimming pool. The kitchen is quite well equipped... More

We had 4 marvellous nights in this beautiful place. The suite was gorgeous, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Wendy & Fred went out of their way to ensure we had a great time nothing was too much trouble. The gardens, pool & hot tub were immaculate. We wished we could have stayed MUCH longer.
