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

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

Thankyou for such a positive review.Our seafront location and close proximity to the centre of town, particularly the bus stop, is such a benefit avoiding having to drive and park.We also believe that choosing a seaview apartment is worth the extra few dollars as you said. 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

Thankyou for the fab.10 out of 10 rating.That is so rewarding for us as owners.They say position is so important and it really is when you have Bayview's incredible view over the Bay to Russell. We are most fortunate to be on the weaterfront with only the Bay in front of us. 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.

Another 10 out of 10 rating.We are so lucky that our guests show their appreciation as often we only hear about the problems. Being so close to town, (200 metres), access to all the restaurants,to the tour starting points,bus stop,shops etc. makes driving and parking avoidable. 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.
