Lovely place to stay, no luxury but clean, comfortable and all you expect and need. Reasonable prices, lovely hosts, covered parking. Nice living room with balcony. Drinks voucher for local pub. Good advices for trips and dining from Phil. Good value for money (a night for 100$).

Stayed here 3 nights whilst on golfing wkd in Bay of islands with girlfriends. Very clean, cosy layout and Phil the host, extremely helpful and friendly. Great advantage is open garage parking under units thereby cutting out slamming car door noise when other visitors come in late or leave early- you hear nothing, stunning views in road end unit and...

We chose Swiss Chalet based on other Trip advisor reviews, which was a good idea! We booked for 4 nights and ended up adding a 5th, despite some rainy weather. The hotel is in a great position, right near the water and very close to the ferries, shops and cafes. In less than a half hour, you can walk from... More

We stayed at the Swiss Chalet for a week in June 2012 ... and found it to be one of the most comfortable motels I have ever stayed at.. The hosts were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. My son and daughter-in-law thoroughly enjoyed themselves and yes we would return in the future.

Maureen and Phil were exemplary hosts - warm, welcoming and caring. They were quietly efficient in suggesting and organising cruises and fishing for my son and I. The hosts and accommodation were so good we stayed there twice on this trip!

We recently stayed at the Swiss Lodge Motel, Paihai, New Zealand. Our hosts Maureen and Phil were always most obliging and helpful in everything, which made our holiday break such a happy and relaxing experience. We have no hesitation in recommending wholeheartedly their accommodation and the service we received.

Staff, very friendly, and Maureen was very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas and activities. Made our stay very pleasant. The place is kept immaculately clean. We have been to many places through out New Zealand, Australia and USA and found it to be of very high standard. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

This was a magnificent stay - it was a little dated in decor (as you might expect from a swiss chalet, but not tired, well kept, and the most magnificent staff, that were very homely in the sense of friendly like good family. The spa was clean and available. Even though the view was not of the coast, all you... More

Small balcony, shared with room next door, for breakfast and afternoon drinks (if not raining!). Kitchen has all you need and would definitley recommend. Extremely clean and comfortable. We stayed...
