Good location, super friendly hosts. Would recommend to others. Everything was fabulous. Rooms were great. They were very accommodating towards our 88 year old mother. Couldn't do enough for you. Thank you Trish and Jim.

We had a spa unit which I think was a pretty decent size. It was very clean and tidy and our hosts were welcoming and friendly. My only regret was I didn't get a chance to use the pool. Would recommend to anyone looking for reasonable priced accommodation in a handy location.

Although we have stayed in Paihia many times we decided to go with a cheaper option but enjoy the extra benefits this Motel offered. Excellent owners, friendly and very helpful. Free Wi-fi a must, but seldom offered even in expensive Hotels. Our only child enjoyed the free Wi-fi being able to play his games, when not ducking and diving in... More

We booked for two nights and only stayed the one. We booked the two room apartment as we traveled with our two children. The kids room wasn't too bad but our room was so small we couldn't put our suitcases in. The pool was very small and our outdoor seats were situated in the car park area. Trish who welcomed... More

The Edelweiss Motel was excellent and the people running it were lovely too. It's very quiet and in a good position. We had a studio room, which was VERY compact, so I'd probably go for something bigger another time. Cooking facilities were good and they have a great heated pool and spa. Would stay here again.

I booked the smallest studio as i was on my own and away for business purposes. The unit was totally adequate (the hosts had made it clear to me when booking that it was small but i said it would be all I req'd) - i thought the space had been very cleverly utilised. Importantly, the bathroom was well laid... More

All reviews seem to be very positive but I must mention the size of the room that we were alloted ...very small. It might not matter to some but it felt claustrophobic me. Otherwise all was pretty good.

I hate to give this place a terrible review, as the room was fine. However there is a bar next door that blasts music all night long, and very loud and probably drunken patrons that join in the chorale. We didn't sleep for the two nights we were there. We were there on a Friday and Saturday night so I... More

Our stay was very pleasant and the staff very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the outdoor area and a chance to swim in the pool. Quiet location and close to everything. The bathroom was very spacious.
