My wife and I spend two nights at the Admiral's View Lodge in mid-November, 2014. We had one of the "luxury studio, sea view" rooms … which was fabulous. The "studio" included a mini-kitchen! And with the great view we chose to have many of our meals on the balcony (more relaxing, more economical and hard to beat the "view").... More

Craig is just fabulous - we were so comfortable staying at Admirals. A super easy check-in and close walk to town! We had a great dinner thanks to Craig's recommendation and slept incredibly well throughout the night. Great people and great accommodation.

Lovely place. Comfortable, clean & spacious and made all the more nicer by meeting the lovely owners! We had a studio room & a two bedroom apartment booked right next to each other for our family of 5. Would definitely choose to stay here again the next time in Paihia. Free wifi too which was very handy with 3 kids!... More

we stayed four nights in this wonderful hotel extending from our original three because we felt so relaxed. Craig and Penny are wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. They are both very knowledgeable about the far north. Craig even sourced and collected some oysters for us when we mentioned we liked them. Our room was amazing. Top floor, overlooking... More

Craig happily showed us around and chatted to us freely about what was available in the area by way of tours, food, transport etc. craig also kept the apartments open during the... More

This place felt like staying in the guest room at a friend's house- so warm & friendly! Craig checked us in and gave us lots of helpful advice about where to go & what activities were available around town. My friends & I had a great time & are looking forward to going back.

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
