The staff were incredibly friendly and extremely helpful with all queries we had. The rooms were neat and clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was close to everything without the town noise becoming a bother.

We stayed for 3 nights in the 'Couples Retreat', upstairs at the back. It was surprisingly quiet considering it's closeness to the shops. The unit was above a barbeque area and the spa pool building at the back, so the bedroom could potentially get some noise from that ... but we certainly didn't experience any. With the spa pool closing... More

This Motel is located in central Paihia, but far enough away that you do not get traffic or pedestrian noise. Really great value for money and we thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay there. Greg and Suzy are just the most amazing hosts, and go above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay.

Thank you for taking the time to review and we'd love to see you again. Glad you enjoyed Paihia's NYE celebration fireworks that the community funds and yes we are in a quiet situation just back from the waterfront. We try and cater to all so that is why we can have up to 4 in the that one bedroom.... More

Very comfortable and clean rooms. Nice and quiet although in the busiest part of town. Excellent hosts..very helpful and accommodating! Close by to eateries and grocery shops (four square and countdown) just a stone's throw away.

Good value, close to local shops & restaurants. Good location for trips out. Suzi & Greg were extremely helpful in booking trips. Only problem was the height of the microwave above the work top. Not accessible to a little person like me!!
