The motel was very clean. Quite impressed by the little pretty pond just outside our room. Our boy even enjoyed swimming in the pool. It was also within walking distance to the wharf and beach. Good value!

Lovely exterior, good location and good facilities at the hotel. The room was large and spacious with a good sized bathroom and great kitchen. All were clean and the bed was comfortable. Free parking and wifi were very much welcomed. No complaints here.

Stayed here 4 nights prior to Christmas. Friendly and helpful owners who always had a smile. The rooms are very clean, have good basic amenities, was able to cook simple breakfast and homemade burgers, in a quiet location with a quick walk into Paihia. The decor is a bit tired but this doesn't mean tatty. The beds were comfy. The... More

This is just a vindictive review from a guest who tried to sneak in a third person without paying but got caught out. More

This motel is handy for walking into Paihia and is constructed in a Spanish/Italian style and has a small swimming pool, hot tub and barbecue among its facilities. The rooms are comfortable but a bit dated. We stayed in room 47 (I think), which is in the tightest corner of the site. This meant parking was a nightmare -reversing and... More

Good little motel with friendly staff. Very basic decor which is quite dated. The rooms were spotlessly clean which impressed me as a lot of places let standards slip over time but this place was pristine throughout. Great location to for beach wandering and getting the ferry to Russell.

Rang to arrange a late arrival due to having to leave in the afternoon (work commitment) and an eight hour drive to get there. We were travelling up to surprise family and needed a room for a night. Was reassured it was fine and given the room number and advised the room lights would be on for us arriving. Arrived... More

I'm sorry my greeting wasn't up to your expectations. I had thought my memory was better than it actually is and hadn't made a note on your booking that you were arriving late. Thus I only remembered when you reminded me. Obviously in future I need to write down things instead of relying on my not so reliable memory. Giving... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. The room was impeccably clean, kitchen had everything we needed for meals in if we didn't want to go out. The hosts were helpful, nice and very accommodating. Access to tennis courts, spa and swimming pool plus wifi. Very good value for money. Great location too!

Very, very clean and comfortable place to stay. We had a warm welcome by friendly owners. Free Wifi and Sky Tv. Close to town, but very quiet. We enjoyed our stay here for two nights and would thoroughly recommend it. There was everything you need in the kitchen which was beautifully clean.
