We reserved a one bedroom as this was near the end of our trip and we wanted to be able to spread out a bit. We could easily have fit another four in with the two of us. I've lived in smaller apartments than this unit. Peter and Wendy were wonderful hosts - this felt less like a motel, and... More

Peter and Wendy were great hosts, and the apartment we had was excellent. The beds were comfortable and it was great having a separate kitchen/dining area. The hotel is around the corner from the main drag, but only about a 10 minute walk to the centre of town. We can also recommend the spa at the end of the day... More

Very warm welcome, the one bedroom unit we rented was clean and comfortable the kitchen unit was well equiped and few minutes walk to the centre of Paihia and harbour. There was a slight noise from the rear of the building in the evening but could not be heard in the room.

Comfortable, clean rooms which are better on the inside than you would expect from the outside. Well priced and friendly owners. Walking distance from town centre.

Lovely cool room with breezes, quite spacious and clean. My only complaint would be the common balcony...needs some privacy! And any noisy guests out on balcony at night is a problem...but nice other than that

We booked to stay 5 nights in a 1 bedroom unit. Very comfortable and spacious unit with everything you need for a short stay. Our first 2 nights were early in the week, the night's were rainy and we slept well. Our third night, later in the week, was a disaster. We discovered there was a backpacker bar and accommodation...

We stayed 4 nights at this motel, which is just around the corner from the Bay itself.This was a huge place with a separate kitchen area, lounge, bedroom and 4 beds all for an exceptionally reasonable price. Peter and Wendy were extremely friendly and were keen to help us, including giving us lots of tips about other places to see... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Alfa Boutique Motel. The rooms were very spacious - the hotel's website does not do this hotel justice. The beds were comfortable, and the rooms clean. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Paihia!

Wendy and Peter were so informative and welcoming. I'm living in Aussie and took my Mum from England for surprise trip to NZ. After stayed in Auckland at awful hotel wished we had booked 4 nights here instead. Quiet location and beautiful scenery. Had a fab time.
