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.

Travelling up from Auckland after a view problems trying to get out of the city ( sometimes jet lag can disorient you) , taking in the beautiful countryside, we arrived in Paihia at about 17:45 hrs , just a little before sundown. 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.

We stayed here for three nights and were very happy with our apartment unit. The owners definitely go the extra mile with lots of useful additional touches to make your stay better. The unit furniture while a bit on the old side is quite functional and did the job fine. The kitchen is well equipped if you decide to eat... More

We cannot recommend more highly this delightful motel on the waterfront in Paihia. The beds were comfortable with electric blankets. Other amenities were all great and the views of the Bay were stunning. Worth paying the extra for the view. The owner Graham went out of his way to help make our holiday enjoyable and even provided some transport when... More

Our family of four stayed in a ground floor room, which was so spacious we could have comfortably stayed a week. It had three single beds in lounge area, with plenty of space to spare, a large kitchen and perfectly adequate queen bedroom and bathroom. What is more we got a room without a view, but it didn't matter at... More

We stayed 3 nights over Easter in a room with no sea view (although there actually was a sea view out the ranch slider). The room was spacious with two single beds in the living area and a fold-out sofa, and a bedroom with a queen bed. The bathroom was clean and modern. The kitchen was well equipped motel-style with...

Chose this place from a number of motels, seemed the best value and close to the main shops. Called a day or two before our booking to upgrade to a seaview suite and the hosts were kind enough to let us upgrade with no fee. What a great decision that was. Huge amount of space for the price and a... More

We booked for two nights. We then found we couldn't make it on the original two nights and on the Wednesday before the Friday booking I tried to get the booking moved to three weeks later. Unfortunately from the motels perspective we were "cancelling" the first booking and remaking the booking so they charged us the full amount for the... More

This guest is not telling the truth.On the 19th March 2014 the guest booked accommodation for the 28th & 29th March. On Thursday, the 27th March,(not Wednesday),the guest phoned at 7.45pm and advised,with only a few hours notice, that as he and his partner had decided to celebrate his partners birthday elsewhere,he no longer required the accommodation booked.He then stated...
