Stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms are clean, good sized and decent toilets. There is ample storage space in room. It is near the center of town with access to passenger ferry to Russel island and other island ferries. A nice supermarket is close by. You can use free wifi for certain GB and after that u pay.

Stayed here as a part of a tour for 2 nights and it did not go well! The wifi is not free had to pay for any wifi after using it free for an hour and it did not seem to work outside or in hotel rooms. The telephone system was broken so you could not call outside!! Great in... More

I spent 2 nights here as part of a Kirra tour. I have travelled with Kirra in the past and their hotel stays are usually very good, but not this time! The room was well overdue for a complete makeover though large, with a very musty smell, even though I opened the windows. The weather was very hot and the... More

This hotel is only 5 minutes from all the restaurants and amenities, so it is a quiet and peaceful place to stay and we got a brilliant night's sleep. The walk to and from the hotel is literally on the flat too, handy for people of any age. The price of the hotel was very good and you pay for... More

I stayed here for 3 days on business during the busy Waitangi Day period. The rooms seem a little outdated and run down, and there is no air conditioning, only a ceiling fan. The television was absolutely terrible, no SkyTV and the channels that were available had appalling reception. The food here is bad. The location is also not ideal... More

Hotel itself is fine; not on the water, but on a quiet back street. Within walking distance of the harbor and restaurants. A bit on the expensive side I thought. They do have "free" wifi but only 1 hour!! And a pain in the (you know where) getting on.

We had some great service here, the guy on reception was very helpful with a great sense of humor. The room was large with comfy beds, we had two hours free wifi everyday for the three nights we stayed. The hotel is a small five minute walk from the centre of town. Would definitely stay here again.

We were greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome. Our room and bathroom were spacious and clean. Only a short walk to the main shopping strip, restaurants and pier. We had a medical issue during our stay and the staff were fantastic and provided information about doctors and hospitals in the region and checked if we had available transport... More

Booked in here for a last minute trip to Paihia. We checked in and we realised our room was in a high foot traffic area of the hotel, went back down to reception to ask if it was possible to move rooms and the lovely receptionist bent over backwards and managed to get us another room. Not only that but... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a group tour of the North Island. The good - well located, good staff and large rooms. The bad - top floor room was very hot, no air-conditioning (unfortunately a common feature in NZ) made it hard to sleep, and the bathroom needed refurbishment. And the ugly - our bed was not...
