Paihia was our last holiday location after touring the North Island. The town, the activities, but also the Swiss Chalet Motel, were the reason we decided to extend our stay. The motel is well appointed, clean, and efficiently serviced. Our balcony looked out over the bay to Russel . . . glorious with the morning sun. Close to the town... More

Great value motel style accommodation. The location was perfect, close to the beach and a short walk to the cafes and restaurants. The couple managing it were lovely. Room was clean and well appointed. Interior was dated but quite charming.

We enjoyed a peaceful and comfortable evening as well as the best morning that came as a surprise. The weather was not predicted to be good but changed to our surprise.Comfortable and Cosy unit with all facilities. Our Lovely host Maureen took the time to provide information for our trip to the far north.

Stayed in late June 2014 as a couple. Phil at the reception was very warming when we first arrived. He gave us a second floor room overlooking the water. The room was fresh and comfortable. The location is excellent, as you simply walk down the street to the waterfront and all the shops. For some reason the battery to our... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Swiss Chalet. I chose it because it was a very attractive motel and not far from restaurants, and the centre of town. Our room was clean and comfortable and we found Phil and Maureen to be very helpful and friendly. We would recommend this place to friends and hope to stay there again... More

Got caught in Paihia during a big storm but our stay here very good. Our room was very clean and lots of space to spread out and wait out the rain. The TV is on the small side but other than that there wasnt a problem. Bed and shower and both excellent and the chairs were very comfortable. Good place... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a family room with a sea view and it was great. Though, personally, I would've preferred better internet and better lighting in the bathroom, the overall stay was great. The view and location were, as promised, wonderful. A calm, evening stroll along the wharf of Paihia is only seconds away, with shops and restaurants... More

We just had 4 nights in a first floor family room at Swiss Chalet. Although dated, the self contained apartment was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities we needed for a short stay. Phil and Maureen were friendly and helpful . The view from our balcony was wonderful and the location is spot on, being only a short... More
