Warm welcome on arrival; good views of Bay of Islands; clean / well pointed room; all at a good price. Some plumbing fittings are a little old, but still function very well. Advice on local eateries was spot on. Was able to stroll to the recommended bars and restaurants.

Last year in March we visited Paihia with Dutch relatives and stayed at the Admiral's View Lodge. Because that stay was so good for all of us, we returned this year with the two of us and were similarly impressed.

We had a wonderful room with a balcony. The room had every thing you could need and more. The owners recommended a restaurant nearby and we weren't disappointed. Stayed three nights at the end of our two months holiday to New Zealand and it was perfect.

I stayed here for two nights in February with 3 Kiwi friends on a Paihia sight-seeing trip and it was perfect! We had a ground-level, 2 bedroom room with all the comforts of home, including a huge bathroom and back yard area! Great kitchen, super clean, well-furnished, and appointed. They even provided us with coffee and cartons of milk! Free... More

Hospitality is the name of the game, Craig and Penny are very good at providing just that. The rooms are very spacious, extremely clean with all the bells and whistles that you will need for self catering. Located just up the hill within easy walking distance to the beach, bars, restaurants, shops and tour departures. Thanks guys for attending to... More

We flew in from Canada to do a short tour of the top of the North Island with family before my nieces wedding back in Rotorua. It is so handy to everything, the rooms were a great size and spotless! We were on the top floor in a side room with a great deck to sit out on and enjoy... More

We have just spent 7 nights in the Admiral's View Lodge. Excellent location, only 5 minutes walk to the town and out of the hustle. The Owners are very friendly, helpful and make you feel totally at home. Apart from the excellent facilities, you have free Bike hire and coffee plunger with generous amounts of real coffee. Would recommend to... More
