If you are on a budget this is a very reasonably priced motel, particularly for a tourist area. The studio unit was smaller than many we have had but it was clean and comfortable and had a very spacious bathroom. The motel is handy to the waterfront, shops, restaurants etc. but is amazingly quiet. The hosts were very helpful, friendly... More

Dear Glenda A, Thank you so much for your great feedback. As you have mentioned these units are small but are ideal for our budget conscious people. Hopefully you will visit us again and try one of our large studios. Kindest Regards Trish and Jim More

We were made very welcome and were given details & maps of where to go & what to see. Our studio was very comfortable & the attention to detail was very touching. We had complimentary milk, tea, coffee & chocholate which was most welcome considering the studio was self catering. We weren't there long enough to enjoy all the amenities... More

Very friendly, lovely and clean, service was second to none. An ideal location just 10 minute stroll to centre of town and all shops and cafés would recommend this motel as a well priced place to stay.

We spent one very nice night at the Edelweiss Motel in Paihia. We had a studio, which was comfortable and had everything we needed for self catering. TV worked great, we were in a bit of a hole for the wireless, but could get it if we sat outside. The beach is just across the road, and town was an... More

We had two very comfortable nights in Edelweiss. Tricia could not have been more helpful and we had a quiet room with plenty of living space including a small balcony. I was particularly appreciative of Tricia's care in finding us a room well away from any road noise as I have difficulty sleeping unless the window is open and it... More

The Edelweiss is a hidden gem in Paihia, just a short walk to the beach and the wharf. Hosts Trish and Jim took excellent care of us during our seven day stay. The pool and spa are lovely and very well maintained, and the BBQ area is an added plus. Although our economically priced studio was small, it was impeccably... More

We absolutely loved staying four nights here. We were made so welcome by Jim when we first arrived, and he also made time to have a chat and a laugh when we were popping in and out. Spent alot of time playing in the salt water pool and relaxing in the spa. Both kept very clean. Servicing of our suite... More

I stayed two nights and it was peaceful stay. Very very nice owners very nice warm heated swimming pool also clean. Rooms were very very clean tidy. The best part was you can walk to ferry building within 5min. Leave the car behind at motel.

I was in Paihia for two days. It was a great value and I would stay there again. As the other reviewers have mentioned, it's clean and close enough to the beach but still secluded. It's really a trade off in Paihia - if you want something with a great view of the beach, you have to be willing to... More
