We stayed at this place for 1 night and wished we could have stayed more. The location is just right and the people are wonderful to deal with. It's only a short 5 min walk to all the shops and the wharf in Paihia. The room and the amenities were clean. Thanks again Phil and Maureen.

Phil and Maureen, thank you for the warm welcome. We loved your property! The studio room was well appointed with plenty of room for three of us. Very clean, tidy and fresh. Most importantly - the beds were very comfortable. The little kitchenette was great and everything worked with sufficient cutlery and crockery. Proximity to town is great and free... More

Stayed 4 nights in the upstairs executive room with a great corner balcony overlooking the sea. Very spacious with spa bathroom and second bathroom with shower. Very comfy bed, plentiful wifi and secure covered parking. Two minute walk into town and the ferries. Plenty of eats and drinks nearby. Welcome was warm. Would certainly consider revisiting.

Have just had four days here and have been delighted with everything. Phil and Maureen are very helpful within the motel and with advice about the area. The rooms are a good size and nicely furnished. There is an indoor spa bath and a laundry. A nice touch is the undercover parking. The situation is very good for the town... More

Coming from a torrid experience at the Copthorne, Auckland, I was anxious about standards of accommodation in NZ. I shouldn't have worried! As soon as we arrived at this motel Phil put my mind at ease. The room was full of character, comfortable and tho maybe not to everyone's taste, had all the facilities that we required at hand.

We stayed recently for three nights. The suite was beautiful tongue and groove and had everything we needed. We really loved the stunning water views. The Hosts were fantastic and welcoming. Very helpful with lots of local knowledge. We will definitely be back.

Just finished staying three nights at the Swiss Chalet. Great location close to the centre of Paihia and got a warm welcome and good advice from Maureen and Phil on what there is to do. Definitely walk over to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and take the ferry across to Russell.

Very warm welcome and friend owner. SPA is available for 30min with free of charge. And its convenient for booking tour e.g. Cape Reinga tour or the hole in the rock etc on the spot. Atmosphere of room is quite acceptable with this price range.
