Stayed for 3 nights with friends from UK. We had a room each. Beds and pillows are very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. Owner very pleasant and helpful. All in all a very good stay although was little disappointed when I asked for an extra small carton of milk for last cup of tea before our drive back to Auckland,... More

We stayed for 2 nights and were amazed at how clean and well maintained the motel is. The owners are very friendly and always ready for a chat - which we enjoyed. The pool is small but nice and clean and we spent some time on the loungers!!

Stopped in here for 1 night, very clean and friendly. A nice hot tub and a nice outdoor small pool. If you want somewhere to lay your head and feel comfortable this is a good choice. Only a five min walk to the main shops and beach of Paihai. The couple that run the place were happy to recommend restaurants... More

Stayed here for 1 night based on other good reviews. The main points to note are that it is very cheap and very clean. The room had all the amenities you need and is only a 10 minute walk into Paihia. Very impressed and would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the motel for the price I paid. The room was clean and tidy, the bed was comfortable. Within a short walk of the amenities in Paihia. I didn't try the spa, but it was available to use for free. I was given 1GB of wifi.

Lovely motel and so are the owners. Stayed for three nights, and took advantage of what the motel had to offer. We took the double kayak for a paddle in the ocean, went for morning swims in the pool, evening spas after exploring, and played tennis in the neighbouring courts. There is also a BBQ. We had a queen studio... More

The staff here are so pleasant and helpful. We only had a small room but it was perfect for us! The rooms were very clean and comfortable. It would have been great if the hotel had a bit more of a view but it's situated within walking distance to Paihia centre. Great value.

After a 4 hour drive to the unreal Bay of Islands we came across Casa Bella Motel. This place is so charming and quaint. Check-in was speedy and personal. We were taken to our room and explained how everything works. The bonus is free parking and right outside your room. The motel is older in design with a Mediterranean feel.... More
