The owner was wonderful and gave us lots of ideas of what not to miss in NZ's north. We had a great room, on the front of the units, with a large deck out front, and a small one to the side...sat out every afternoon and evening. Everything was nice and clean and we even got REAL plunger coffee, rather... More

Very good location and services that meet all our needs. The free Wi-Fi was there but the signal strength was poor and variable. Ok to do email, whereas not sufficient to surf the net, especially with the dropout.

My husband and I spent one night in the "Deluxe Studio". The room is VERY spacious and comfortable. It was an end unit with a large 2-sided balcony. It is located on the second floor, accessed by stairs (only) and car parking (free) underneath. The unit was spotless. There is a queen bed with a comfortable mattress, 2 large recliner... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in March. We hadn't pre-booked anything so we just drove along the streets looking at the motels. Austria motel caught our eye as it had good street appeal. The motel is one street back from the waterfront and only a few minutes walk to all the facilities of Paihia. The rooms are one level... More

We received a warm welcome at the Austria Motel and some helpful advice about local eateries etc. The hosts are very friendly and obliging, happy to go the extra mile to fulfill our requests. Comfortable bed, spotlessly clean room, trouble-free WIFI and easy walking distance to all amenities. Under cover parking provided free. We were spoiled for choice with local... More

We stayed in the 2-bedroom unit. Staff were friendly. Premises were clean and pleasant. The room had a great view of the bay and there was a balcony big enough for the four of us to sit in as well. Wifi worked well. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants but at the same time quite private and not... More

It was our third time in Paihia but our first at Austria Motel and I must say "we missed out on the other two occasions". It suited our needs perfectly, large clean bright units with a small kitchenette, bathroom with shower over a "shub" (very small bath). TV, two recliner chairs, table and chairs, sleeps 3. Plus a balcony with... More

We love staying here, so close to shops and ferry building. The owners are very friendly and always offer to carry our bags to the room. The units themselves are always spotlessly clean and spacious with lots of light. So all in all every stay (we have stayed 3 times) is comfortable and we feel good value for our money... More
