We've just got back from a great weekend staying at Admiral's View lodge. The accommodation is walking distance from the main street & activities. The accommodation was super clean and the hosts were very hospitable directing us to nice restaurants and ferry time tables etc. I will certainly visit them again when I'm back in Paihia

We traveled to Paihia in early February, 2014 on holiday. We stayed at Admiral's View for 2 nights. The room was on the street level in the middle. We faced the parking lot so it was a tad noisy with cars and other hotel guests. Having said that the location of the hotel is great; not right on the main... More

We visited over Easter break and were greeted with a wonderful smile and warm welcome after a long drive from Auckland. We we given an upgrade which was fabulous. Beautiful views, lovely walk into town (not too far - 5mins max) and great place to stay! We'll be back and would highly recommend to all!

The property is very clean and ideally situated within walking distance to attractions and restaurants. The manager, Craig is very pleasant and couldn't be more helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We stayed here for a night in March. We were travelling as two couples and called in on the off chance of two rooms. Craig is great, he sorted our needs and even got into light hearted banter with our group. The motel is really very good, we had the pair garden rooms at the front of reception. Very comfortable...

We had spent a couple of days in Auckland then headed to Paihia for 3 days of a month long holiday of the North and South Islands. We had booked approx. 6 months before travelling as we were told February is the most popular holiday month of the year. We were greeted by a very friendly gentleman, I think Pel,... More
