On arriving we were met with a very friendly welcome. Lots of helpful information of where to eat and things to do. Fresh milk was provided for the very needed cuppa. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Some friends had stayed here a couple of years ago and recommended it to us, it certainly lived up to its... More

We stayed here for 8 days in a corner self catering suite with an ocean view. The rooms were comfortable, very clean, had free wifi, and the motel is within walking distance of shops, grocery stores, the ferry, bus stop, restaurants..all a tourist could ask for. Maureen and Phil could not have been more accommodating! We feel like we have... More

This was our second stay at the Swiss Chalet in as many years . The hosts Phil and Maureen are very friendly and helpful . On both occasions we... More

Phil and Maureen were very friendly, helpful and informative to ensure we had the best holiday by recommending a full day tour of 90 Mile Beach, Cape Reinga and Northland. Room 8 was very comfortable with pleasant surroundings in and outside the room. The covered carpark was fantastic for our car who was on holiday too and kept her out... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in November and were very pleased with our room. We didn't have a sea view, think only the end rooms have that, but we enjoyed sitting outside on our little balcony listening to the birdsong. Very pretty with all the flowers. We had free WiFi and Phil booked a Bay of Islands trip for... More

Maureen and Phil went out of their way to look after us even before we had officially checked in. Our room was very spacious and comfortable and quite luxurious, The location of the hotel was excellent as the town centre of Paihia was within a 5 minute walk. The views of the ocean from the room were also quite spectacular.

Thank you for your lovely review Mark. We were pleased to have you here - even if it was only 1 night. Maybe you will be able to stay longer next time you visit Paihia. All the best for 2015, Maureen and Phil More

We stopped by chance at this lovely hotel. Maureen found us a nice room where we could rest our heads for the night. We arrived quite late in the afternoon but she was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very very nice and comfortable with lovely fittings and a very comfy bed. She gave us tips of where to... More

The owner Maureen graciously provided guidance on things to do and tours to consider and, indeed, arranged a tour in which my wife, daughter, and I expressed an interest. The Swiss Chalet Lodge is well sited in Paihia, being conveniently located near restaurants, cafes, shops, and a mini Countdown supermarket. The ferry dock was just about a block away from... More

Thank you, Maureen & Phil What can I say that hasn't already been said in spades. The warmth exuded by our hostess was palpable & most appreciated. We loved our room & felt as if we were at home without having to do any chores. We took ferries to a couple of the islands & did some lovely bush walks.... More
