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

If you are looking for a motel with amazing service and really just the most kind and helpful staff, this is the place.

We booked a two-room unit which was really comfortable and spotlessly clean. The place is a little off the center of Paihia, but all in all extremely enjoyable because we did not have the noise and stress of the crowds on the beachfront. The views were incredible, and we did enjoy watching the sunset from our bedroom window, or sipping... More

Thank you Myrna, I am glad that you enjoyed your visit. I have posted on our Bali Hai Facebook page, that we do not charge for the quiet, but you will pay extra in town for the noise. It is lovely when people appreciate that our location is also our unique advantage. Look forward to seeing you next time. Barbara More

Barbara was really helpful and did a great job in settling us in especially as 4 groups arrived at the same time. She told us which activities were worth seeing and how to get there in detail. The room was clean, shower pressure was strong and hot, comfy beds and kitchen facilities all in working order. Would definitely come back!

I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay, our rooms are spacious. Sometimes, the older style of the building is off putting for some guests, BUT, as is often the case, older style buildings were built with more space. We have refurbished internally, so our guests get the best of both worlds. A quiet, location with views and space! Thank... More
