Great location near everything. Rooms average at best. Shower floor was the strangest thing I have seen. About a foot rise off the bathroom floor. Slippery and difficult to get in and out. Walls about the thickness do a piece of newspaper. We had very noisy people and no one cared. No dishwasher. I would try a different option. It... More

You couldn't ask for a better location in Paihia, on the waterfront and easy walk from town and close to several restaurants. The apartments are quite small but everything is in excellent condition including the pool and spa and impeccably clean. The management are very friendly and helpful and have canoes and bikes for hire.

A neat apartment, a comfortable bed and couches, a small kitchen, but well stocked with utensils and home wares. Everything is neat and tidy. The courtyard and pool area are spotless and the lounges the most comfortable I've come across. Our only gripe is the lack of any cooling. The nights get a bit muggy and having not even a... More

Busby Manor was the perfect setting for our family holiday to Paihia. Located close to the town centre and just across the road from a fantastic, child-friendly beach. The units are small but very clean with newly fitted bathroom and kitchen facilities, and contained everything we could want. A old fashioned but very serviceable cot was provided as well and...

Very centrally placed in Paihia and within easy walking distance of the town itself with its restaurants, shops and the beach was across the road. View of the beach and sea from our balcony. Some money has been spent on updating the unit. The bathroom and kitchen looked newly fitted. Everything you could want in the kitchen was available. One... More

Beautiful Paihia! The accomodation is fine but not really luxury. No dishwasher, no LCD TV, heating only by wee fan heater, coin operated facilities, payment for equipment. Internet access very expensive. But central and adaquete.

We enjoyed our holiday in Paihia, but were very disappointed in the standard of the resort. It is a wonderful location, right in the centre of Paihia, and walking distance to lots of things to do. The staff were friendly and helpful. We ended up in a one-bedroom unit downstairs (Unit C) after agreeing to swap rooms so another family... More

We had a very comfortable weeks stay on a ground floor unit. Although the decor was a bit dated, it was clean and tidy and comfortable for two. There is a large swimming pool with separate spa pool on site, although we chose to walk along the beach for a romantic stroll each night. The location is excellent with the... More
