“Lovely motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We loved this motel, it was a beautiful ensuite room, which opened up onto a garden. There was a TV and DVD player in the room and we found the kitchenette very useful. There were also laundry facilities. Would definitely stay there again.

I stayed for 2 nights in the cottage unit & it was like somebody else suggested, a five star experience...from the moment i arrived i felt very comfortable! I met the owner Stuart, who was friendly & helpful. My room was fab, lovely bed, well equipped kitchen, great bathroom & shower. Outside the rear of room was a pleasant garden, quiet swimming pool (which i regretfully didn't use, nor the sauna!)...but i used this location for Paihia & visiting Russell...i liked being in the center of town during the day but this was a welcoming retreat! I did use the laundry room & watched the sky television..a great place to stay!!! I noticed that Carol (owner) cleaned & sorted the room every day, again a nice experience - worth a visit away from the Hustle & bustle of Paihia!!! I did mention to Stuart, that from my room (second from the end, i didn't receive wifi..& had to go outside the front to use it, but he said 'he'll look at that in future) Hey...everything was great - thankyou!!!

We booked a cottage at the Ash Grove Boutique Hotel, but when we arrived we received an upgrade to a family suite. This had a separate bedroom, living and dining areas and a nice kitchen. Lots of room - wish we had more than one night there. The pool area was beautiful with lots of flowers around. It was very quiet - a little ways out of town.

Stayed for five nights at Ash Grove. The cottage unit we had was like a hotel suite in a five star. Beautiful french doors to a charming backyard, complete with an outdoor grill and swimming pool. Laundry room for your threads and a whole library of DVDs to play on the big screen tv in your room. Kitchen was excellent well equipped to make many delicious meals. Grounds and cottages were very clean, owners charming, and location was away from the hurly-burley of downtown Pahia. We loved it.

We enjoyed three nights at Ash Grove Motel. The units were very clean and well equipped and being 3 km from Paihia we were able to enjoy peace and quiet. The owners were very helpful and gave us very good suggestions for spending our time in the beautiful Bay of Islands. I would be happy to recommend this motel to other travellers.

We enjoyed two nights at the Ash Grove four weeks ago. It is between the village of Paihia and Haruru Falls and very easily accessible to both. the owners, Carl and Stuart were friendly and accommodating. They gave us great suggestions on places to eat. I like the fact that there is an on-site laundry near the office. The rooms were spotless and well equipped. We didn't use the spa or pool, but both are provided. I would recommend this if you're heading for Paihia.

We enjoyed a very pleasant 4 nights here. It was well equipped, clean and spacious. It is tucked away some 3 km from the town in its own quiet corner. The pool and the garden are a bonus. Would recommend it to other couples.
