The motel is 5 minute walk from the wharf, very convenient. The room was fairly old and really needs renovating. When I first checked in, I realised there were lots of ants in the kitchen. The owner came in and sprayed the ants. Seriously the cleaner didn't do his/her job properly. Despite that, it was an ok stay for one... More

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

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
