Being about a 5 minute drive from Paihia itself, you really do need a car to stay here, otherwise you face a rather long climb up a hill to get there. The motel itself is fantastic, with clean, well appointed units, a communal garden area (with BBQ if you wish) and a swimming pool.
Our unit was the first one you come to on the way up the drive, and being on the end meant that we had an extra set of windows, meaning that our unit received plenty of natural light. It was nice to have a little table and chairs in the back garden on our patio so that we could sit and have breakfast outside in the morning. The kitchen had everything we needed.
The owners were really friendly, and although we only stayed for 2 nights, we could easily have enjoyed a longer stay.
