Fantastic service. Arrived late, greeted on arrival with smiles and room already heated (middle of winter). Early call request, newspapers and milk delivered bang on time every morning. Great rates and service with a smile. Highly recommended.

A well located motel in a part of Paihia which consists of hotels. motels and residential properties. The Admiral's View Lodge had a fairly modern (let's say late 1990's) feel about it, was clean, and did its job well. The main part of town was still within a reasonable walking distance, and there was a bottle shop around the corner... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review, we really appreciate the amount of information you have passed on to our future guests. Your comments on the size of the garden rooms are spot on, they are ideal for 2 people, or 2 people and a small child. More

We were part of a group of frequent travelers from various parts of the world who chose this part of New Zealand as our destination this year. This is a lovely independent motel of the kind no longer so commonly seen in the U.S.A. We encountered a friendly greeting and efficient check-in upon arrival. Our room was spacious, well kept,...

A very nice property. The greeting was friendly and the location was within walking distance of beach and next door to one of the concert venues. The decor to the room was modern and clean. Recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to review Admiral's View Lodge and your kind words. We are indeed well placed for the festivals, close enough to the venues but still a quiet retreat if needed. More

As before we had a spacious, comfortably furnished room on the upper level. Room tastefully furnished, good wi-fi, everything spotless, comfortable bed and quiet. Location is good as town is within walking distance. Host most helpful with restaurant, store and driving directions for the island. Would return.

A group of 7 couples staying here this weekend and arrived at 7:15pm (thankfully before the 8pm front desk close). We were advised how to get to our rooms, and we found Room 7 at the top of the steps. Pleasantly surprised by the size and the desk overlooking the street (but hardly noisy as traffic flow isn't huge. We... More

We stayed three nights at Paihia as part of an eight night holiday in Northland, and so glad we allocated the additional time to this part of NZ. The Bay of Islands has so much to see, and Paihia is a great base - much more relaxed atmosphere than the more commercial Kerikeri nearby. There are great walks and places... More
