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

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. Our hosts recognised us right away and made us very welcome - upstairs room with view, comfortably appointed, spotlessly clean,... More

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
