The Hotel was perfect for our trip. 2 couples in 2 seperate rooms alongside each other Staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us. Rooms were a good size with big bathrooms. For the price we could not have asked for more. Wifi and TV were great. Food in the restaurant was top quality and service excellent.... More

We checked in here a days driving with nowhere booked for the night. The lady on reception found us a room with ease. The room was on the first floor and was comfortable. It was clean and served our purposes.

We stayed here for a 3 days. We had a room on the ground floor so no carrying cases up to your room. Downside no air condition in the room which can become hot during the summer period. Location is amazing, a short walk to the main shopping centre especially for the affordability of this hotel guest laundry is available... More

Dear Reviewer Wow, that is such a useful and comprehensive review for others. It's great for Tripadvisor viewers to get this sort of information from first-hand experience. Those extra pool loungers are on order and will be available soon. Thank you for your comments and we hope can return sometime. Kind Regards, Ted Hatch More

We were delighted with the position of this accommodation. It is situated in a really great spot at the top of the central eating and shopping strip, so everything is a pleasant walk from your front door. Our room was located on the ground floor, which was good for not having to carry luggage up too many stairs. But unfortunately... More

Thanks for you comments Jackie. I totally agree about the ideal location of our hotel, it's one of our selling features being so close to the town centre, sea, and all tour service providers, and yet we're situated amongst native bush and pretty much out of site of the main activity. With respect to the room ventilation, the windows at... More

There's not much one can say to a review like this, I can only apologise that your experience was unsatisfactory to you. I have noted that your request for a room was made with some desperation late in the evening and you were still some 4-5 hours away from the property. I further note that a key was left out... More

the hotel meets your basic needs. has a bed and tv for entertainment, noting flash. the kitchen is very much indian food oriented which is a bit of a disapointment. the hotel s very much due for some tender love and care in the renovation

Your review is totally at odds with recent reviews of this hotel. The fact that it is written nearly 12 months after your alleged stay probably accounts for its inaccuracy with respect to the hotel today and, I'm surprised that its posting has been permitted. For any reader, I would encourage you to judge us by reviewers who have stayed... More

We were in Paihia last year and decided to come back on the cheap for 5 days (23rd-28th December). We looked at backpackers but over this time they wanted triple the price. So we opted for Tanoa, at just $71 a night for 2 people. It was an easy flat walk of 5 mins from information center/Ferry building to Tanoa... More
