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.

The Motel is very well priced and the rooms are clean and well furnished. We forgot some stuff in our room and Maureen and Phil were so helpful to post it to one of our next accommodation! Great service! Thanks for the nice days at Paihia!

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
