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

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...
