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...

Booked for one night but changed to three after first night. Great accommodation right on the seafront. We had great views over to Russell and could lie in bed and watch all of the action. Studio unit was great value for money with all of the location and facilities of luxury accommodation for a very reasonable price. Staff were wonderful.... More

We had booked two units, 2 x 1 bedroom, one with a bay view, the other upstairs with no view. The front unit was smaller, but the views compensated for that, and the other unit was very roomy. Both were well equipped and clean, and the beds very comfortable, and the manager was very helpful and friendly. It was great... More

We stayed at this place for 4 nights and came away quite impressed. Our unit was spacious, very tidy and well equipped.
