Everything about staying at the Paihia Scenic Resort Hotel was tops. We pre-booked by phone no problem, got the best deal, and on arrival, the friendly Manager was helpful and dealt with our bookings very efficiently. Our rooms were in a quiet wing surrounded by beautiful gardens and away from the road. Parking was nearby. We found everything in the... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the decor, quality of the room and facilities. It's not beach-front, but still within an easy walking distance to the main dining/shopping area. The landscaping was absolutely beautiful & lush, with birds galore singing right in front of the balcony. The garden view was really beautiful. The room was quiet, with a heat-pump. The... More

We stayed here for two nights in a Deluxe room. Immaculate hotel rooms, comfy as beds, lush gardens, ample free parking and the Nikau restaurant was awesome. Staff very friendly and helpful, would definately stay here again - the only thing that could have improved our stay, was a spa pool for the winter evenings :)

Nice clean well equipped rooms at this delightful location - the restaurant was particularly good with an interesting and varied menu. The staff were very friendly and helpful making my few days here most enjoyable. Ideal location for exploring this beautiful area.

Our first visit to Paihia. Very spacious clean hotel, very friendly and helpful staff and the hotel meals were better than in town. Nice to get a complimentary newspaper and welcome drink. Will definitely go back.
