I chose this motel because it was just off the main highway, so I though it would be quiet - and it was. We did hear a couple of car doors, but nothing to disturb the peace. The room was clean and tidy, the bed comfortable, and the hosts very warm and friendly.

When we arrived here they didn't seem to have our booking, but in showing them our conformation letter that was quick resolved and they apologised for the inconvenience. Turns out it wasn't their fault it was the site that I had booked through. The staff were great though, helpful in pointing out a few fun things to do in the... More

We had a nice two bed apartment, with some views, but mainly cosy with a nice TV, bathroom... More

I stayed here for 2 nights over Queens birthday weekend. At a great rate I found the room better than at other (more expensive) motels I have stayed. What I liked were the free WiFi, that there was shampoo (not all motels seem to have this) and a spa pool and pool. Hosts were friendly and it was nice and... More

A friend and I spent our first 2 nights in New Zealand here. I had done quite a bit of research online trying to find an inexpensive but quality motel that was close - but not too close - to the central area of town. I was impressed with the way the owner answered my emails each time with a... More

Enjoyed our two night stay here. Short walk to town. Nice and quiet. Great plunger coffee was a nice suprise in our room! Great shower. Good water pressure! and the spa and free wifi in our room was an added bonus.

After a long bike trip this was a lovely little motel to check into. Friendly owner to help with check-in. Nice spa pool to relax in. Everything clean and tidy to a high standard. Easy flat walk to all restaurants and bars in a quite street. Will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Paihia

I stayed here for one week with my family and it has been the best holiday so far! The hosts were very friendly, talkative and generous, allowing us to borrow their tennis equipment and key to use the tennis court next door as well as their double kayak, which made a great day out for my family. Every evening after... More

After long day of travel, late evening arrival, looking for place to stay. We ran into this Casa Bella Motel, with friendly nice manager, reasonable prices, clean room, and very nice kichenette. Great value for money.

What a lovely motel to stay in The room was very spacious as was the shower toilet area. The kitchen was fully equipped so if you want to cook you could . The bed was very comfortable . The owner and his wife were very friendly people always willing to help.
