Great location with only a 2 minute walk down the road to the township. Room was beautifully set up, with beautiful bedding. Has a spa but pool is not heated and not really suited for children. Didn't have a chance to try the buffet dinner or breakfast, but what was served looked great! Overall, highly recommended A+

This hotel is about a 2 minute walk (if that) to the main street of Paihia. It's at the bottom of the hill too, so there's not much uphil walking involved. You're also in walking distance to the jetty which is where all the day trips for the Bay of Islands leave from. There's a nice little place not too... More

Seemed like a cheap and tidy place was within walking distance to town centre. We stayed for two nights and it was ok as we were out most of the day vesting the bay of islands. The bedroom had an extra bed and hence the room a little cramp. The room was very basic. If you opened the bathroom window... More

Well the room had kind of a old look. It had a deserted kind of feel there.

Got a discount for the room & so glad we stayed there for our holiday. The hotel may seem a bit out of the way but really, it's less than 10 mins' walk to town & to the ferry point. Staff was friendly and helpful & room was comfortable. Camera left behind was also returned which I'm so grateful of... More

A cheap and clean hotel, a little out of the way but still within walking distance of the town centre. Friendly staff. The only negative was an overpriced continental breakfast that was very ordinary in quality.

This place was such a bargain and thf reviews mixed so I had no expectations of anything great-but was very pleasantly surprised! Staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating and the room was clean with a new bathroom and comfy beds. No complaints and I'd happily stay there again.

Not a great stay although we had a reasonable price for this popular tourist resort. To be fair it is in a good position, only a short walk from all amenities and the room was clean. However, our room had 3 beds which made it very cramped.The decor was dated and there was little if any soundproofing.The maid was cleaning... More
