This motel is on the main road which means you have a brilliant view of the Paihia water but we never heard any road traffic noise. The motel is well appointed and clean. It is close to the wharf and bus station and supermarket. The only 2 flaws we found was the lack of water pressure in the shower for... More

We were at Bayview Motel during New Zealand summer time (January 2016) for 3 days., Pros: ● Overall, the place looks clean. ● The owner is a very nice person, but this does not surprise as it is New Zealand. ●The views are very nice. ● Paihia is a small, small town and the vast majority of the hotels/motels are...

Me and my partner stopped here for 3 nights in September 2013. Showing up without a booking we expected to be put in any old room but to our surprise we were given a room right on the front looking out over the sea with a balcony, seating area and BBQ. The reception area is small but full of leaflets... More

We were staying in Unit 1 on the 2nd floor and had great views to see the beautiful sunrises in the morning. It was in a great location close to a restaurant called Greens which I would highly recommend. The Owner was very helpful and the Apartment was very comfortable and clean. I will definitely stay here again and highly... More

Thankyou for such a high rating 10 out of 10. The view of the bay is great from the higher level apartments .So when booking asking for apartments 1,2,8 or 9 will really get you the best views and sunrises. For Thai and Indian meals Greens has got to be the best choice.So pleased you enjoyed their food. We always... More

This was a big favourite with our family on this vacation. Perfect location right on the water with incredible views. We were on second level with 5 of us. Did charge extra for the children which we were not advised when booking so quite expensive but value for money with the location!!! Basic accommodation but very clean and all you... More

the location was great and the view was fantastic from my seaview apartment. However, the water pressure in the bathroom is pathetically weak which makes the evening and morning showers not very enjoyable. We left early in the morning and came back late afternoon and found that the cleaner didnt refill the coffee and vacuum the room for us (however,... More

We apologise for the low water pressure in your apartment.If you had brought this to our attention at the time a 1 minute remedy would have sorted the problem.We had a plumber do a small repair on the water cylinder before you arrived and he left the pressure turned down too low. Only took a minute to turn it up... More

We had adjoining rooms and balconies on the top floor, facing the ocean. This was such a great motel. Right on the water, Graham was VERY helpful, within walking distance of everything, the price was right, the rooms were clean (except for the smelly toilet). Why spend too much money staying at one of those fancy chain hotels when you... More

Thankyou for a great rating.We are lucky to have our motel positioned on the waterfront with nothing to spoil the view over the bay. For the little extra it is always worth booking a sea view apartment. More

What a fantastic spot for this well equipped motel - just away from the bustling centre of this Bay of Islands beauty spot and yet near enough to walk to the many town centre amenities available. The room had fantastic views overlooking the bay and an outside terrace with tables and chairs AND communal barbecue facilities. Our only problem was... More

Your great review is really appreciated......thankyou. Our position on the seafront and so close to town(200m) and all restaurants is so helpfull.If I remember correctly ,you had your meal at Jimmy Jacks Rib Shack. In our 5 years in Paihia we have never had an unhappy Jimmy Jacks customer. Hope to see you soon back in Paihia. More
