We found this hotel to be quiet, a good size, clean easy walking distance to eateries and many shops and owners were very helpful with anything we needed. They even helped us to book a bus tour for the day, guests at motel get a discount on tours. Would stay again.

A very well positioned motel about 200 mtrs from the seafront.... Nice clean and tidy rooms with a well equipped kitchenette and bathroom, complimentary coffee tea and chocolate and milk given at check in... Helpful and very friendly owners make this motel a winner in Paihia

We had the pleasant surprise to see our booking to be upgraded to a slightly bigger room, with a separate room for our kid. The kitchenette was effective with all basic ustensils provided; dishes were washed every day when we were out which was a nice surprise as well. The reception offered us a set of brochures fitting our wants... More

This motel is only a couple of hundred meters from the Paihia centre in a handy and quiet location. We had a family suite and it was perfect for our needs, very clean and comfortable beds. Free WiFi was a great plus as was the complimentary plunger coffee. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay... More

Paihia is great, and this place aswell. Big rooms and great value depending on what you pay. The flat tv have satellitechannels with discovery and animal planet and the kitchen works well. Good location and near everything. I would definitely stay at this place again. The wifi is like in the rest of nz.. But hey it works atleast.

The Tui is located in a very handy position near the cafes, shops and harbour. The room was clean and very comfortable. The reception lady, maybe the manager, was friendly and helpful. Slept well and had a very relaxing time. Not a luxurious place but good value. I would suggest a little more water pressure for the shower will enhance... More

We stayed here for a last-minute weekend break. shortly before Christmas '13. It was recommended to us by friends who have relatives in the trade. It's in a good location, very close to shops, restaurants and the harbour and everything is within easy walking distance. We'd booked the studio for two nights and the price was extremely reasonable. The studio... More

This motel is in a good location and away from the noisy main street. It's old but clean and the bed is comfortable. Great to have some wifi included in the price too. I found it a bit cold because the only form of heating was a fan heater so I wouldn't stay there in winter.

Hi, Thanks for your review, we are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, and the free unlimited Wifi. We purchased new heaters for the Aarangi Tui last year and I can only think you were here during the change of season when we hadn't swapped the cooling fans for heaters in the room. Thanks again for your favorable review,... More

We had a 2 bedroom unit and found it ideal. Good location close to town, used the free wifi, good beds and efficient staff. Had 3 meals at the RSA which is almost next door, Excellent food and a friendly place.

Hi, We are glad you enjoyed the use of our two bedroom family unit, and of course our Wifi. The RSA has an excellent restaurant and being only a minutes walk away is an ideal place to enjoy some good kiwi fare. More
