This motel is placed in a great location: about five minutes walk from the centre of Paihia and across the road from the water. The check in process was smooth. We were provided drink vouchers for the restaurant next door and complimentary wi-fi. The room, whilst a basic motel style, was clean and included all we needed. We booked the budget studio around the back which has a kitchen but no air con - however, a heater was provided which was sufficient for our stay. The motel features free parking; we were able to park around the back in front of our room...very convenient. Only some minor cons: in this room we could hear people moving around above us and both our booking and the front office sign said reception would be open at 8:00AM. The day we checked out, it showed no signs of opening even around 9:00AM. Not sure what happened there; maybe we missed something but nothing was noted in the room compendium either. Regardless, it was a comfortable stay at a great price. Nice touch was the thank you email sent from the owners after our stay. It's clear they take pride in their property. Would stay here again when next in the Bay of Islands.
