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

This Motel is in a great location for visitors to Paihia. Right on the waterfront, Only 150 metres from the wharf which is the centre of everything that the tourist is looking for and importantly, within easy walking distance, no car needed. The units are well appointed, and in first class condition. We would use this motel again.

Room 10 had no view from the room but the narrow deck with a small table and 2 chairs afforded a view out to the water. I would definitely pay extra for a room with a view! Our room had a separate bedroom with a queen bed. In the lounge dining were two single beds plus a large pullout sofa... More

A big thanks to the staff at the Bayview for being so good. It seemed nothing was too much and their local knowledge was excellent. I would love to come back next time I am in the area. The indoor spa was so relaxing and it is so close to some amazing restaurants. This little tourist town is bustling with... More

This place was recommended by the local iSite. It's a nice motel with great service. The rooms a very nice. Calling them "spotless" would be an understatement. Easy parking and close enough to walk around and see Paihia on foot. Would go back and stay again anytime.

Came here for the long weekend, wasn't expecting too much since was a last minute booking on a busy season. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Location is great, within walking distance to cute Paihia town centre. Room is very spacious, great if you travel in a party of 4 or 5. It's also clean,tidy and well kept. It comes with... More

Great value for money,good location and paid extra for a view, we were very impressed, Had a top story studio, lovely view of the bay, very clean apartment, had a lovely deck and BBQ which we used. Pay extra for a view as it's worth it.

We stayed in a large one bedroom apartment that was spacious, clean & well set out. It is only a 5 minute walk to the main street of Paihai. Had great views over the bay from our room. The managers at this motel were very helpful.

Yep it's definitely a bay view, our room over looked the bay and the aspect was good. Get... More

Yours was a very nice review thankyou. Paihia is certainly a spectacular place to visit and to book a seaview apartment is the answer to enjoy the sunrises we experience.Price wise it's always worthwhile paying that little bit extra to experience the vista. More

This Motel is located right next to the main road and few steps from the sea. Beautiful location but the actual Motel is very dated. Bedding was a bit grubby. As you are in a beautiful area and only using the motel as a base to sleep it's not that bad.
