I really want to love this motel because the owners were super nice and sweet. We booked two rooms. We checked in really late and they stayed up waiting for us. We expected this motel to be at least decent because of the high ratings from previous customers. Perhaps it was because we booked the garden view room that is... More

Thank you for your review, unfortunately with humidity levels in Northland this year the insect population has exploded and ants & roaches can turn up in a matter of minutes. As you have noted we did get on top of this for you and removed all the insects from your room. It is unfortunate that you broke the insect screens... More

We had three nights here while diving in the Bay of Islands. Great little spot - Very spacious and comfy room. An easy walk into town and the washing machine and dryers meant that we had clean dry kit for each day - what a bonus!

Spent 5 nights here as a base to explore the Bay of Islands region. First floor room provided views of the town and bay. Room was very clean and well maintained with ample space for the 3 adults in our party. Well equipped kitchenette and balcony (shared). Good price, relatively quiet location and only 10 min walk to Paihia's centre.... More

This motel was outstanding on all fronts. Our 1st floor apartment overlooked the bay and we enjoyed the excellent views from our balcony. Excellent and clean facilities and free wifi added to our enjoyment. Highly recommended for a base in this area.

A splendid motel in a good location, with wonderful service. We stayed for four nights and have never been so comfortable. The apartments are spacious, immaculate and comfortable. The service was first class.

Clean spacious room on the first floor, excellent shower. Good cooking facilities. Staff very helpful and friendly. A pleasant 5 minute walk into Piahia centre, where you'll find a good selection of shops along with the harbour with boat trips etc. Do take the boat across to Russell, a good few hours visit.

The motel was in a good location for activities, food outlets, shops, etc. The room was clean, comfortable and with good amenities. Reception was friendly and helpful. One small, minor fault was that parking was tight on a steepish slope, but this wasn't a real problem.

Thank you for the great review. Our parking can be quite tight, it's the downside of being on the side of the hill, but that is the price we pay for the views! We offer free valet parking, just ask at reception. More

We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious and comfortable the units were. Within easy walking distance of restaurants and activities. Quiet location away from the noisy main road. Set up with comfy indoor chairs for a rainy day to stay indoors to watch movies or comfortable outdoor chairs to enjoy sitting in the sun and reading a book or chatting... More
