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

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
