We arrived late without a reservation and the manager came down promptly to shows us a lovely room. It was immaculate and very charming with real wood furniture and Swiss accents, a nice kitchenette and modern bathroom. The manager was very helpful with recommendations of nearby activities on the water.

This is a great value motel. The location was great, being close to the beach and a short walk to the cafes and restaurants. I stayed there with my family and the room was clean but the interior was a bit dated. The couple managing it were very helpful and friendly.

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

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
