We were looking for accommodation and asked to see the one bedroom apartment, the owner Barbara was excellent so helpful, we wanted 2 nights but she offered us a 3rd night at half price which we accepted. First class modernised facilities, with lovely view over the bay.

When we opened the door in the morning we were greeted with the most wonderful view of the bay. Nice area out the back with BBQ chairs and table. Wifi free . Barbara the manger... More

Spent two nights at Bali Hai and it was a thoroughly pleasant way to round off our trip around New Zealand. The room was very clean and well maintained, and I couldn't fault the fantastic service provided by Barbara. Her dedication to her customers is worthy of high praise. All in all well worth a stay at the Bali Hai... More

Very nice block of units, well set up with deck out front and a very quiet and shaded shared area at the rear with tables and chairs for relaxing. Room was clean and tidy and comfortable. Selection of DVDs to borrow was great for the kids to unwind after sightseeing. The manager Barbara could not have done more to make... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in late November 2014. The motel was extremely clean and Barbara the manager was very helpful with her local knowledge of restaurants and sites to see around the Bay of Islands area. Highly recommended if you are seeking a good nights sleep with minimal noise.

The Bali Hai Motel is a great place for a quiet stay. It is a short walk from the centre of Paihia ( 15 minutes downhill) and many restaurants will give you a lift back. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and spacious with excellent kitchenette facilities. There is a shared BBQ and a great selection of DVDs to use.... More

We were delighted with our 3 night stay here. The room was well furnished, super clean and spacious. Everything we needed was in the kitchen area, there was a choice of outside chairs and table to sit at, with a nice view of the sea + there was a large collection of DVDs to watch and a barbie to use...

After a very long drive from Rotorua, the very friendly host Barbara made sure we were quickly settled in with everything we needed. Despite the bad weather, Barbara was very helpful in suggesting places where we could still visit and even made sure we could get a table for 8 for our very last minute dinner reservations! The rooms were... More

Hi Adrian Thank you, it is lovely to read a positive review. It makes a real difference in so many ways. I think the "teenagers" might be training to become film critiques...LOL. Hopefully, you will stay again - best wishes Barbara More
