“Will be back to stay here again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Booked a Premier Room for the New Years period (4 nights) and noticed on the website that it was under new management. The room was clean and tidy and was good value for money. The location is excellent - walking distance to the beach and shops. We took advantage of the special breakfast and dinner menu that they were offering - both were very good. There was friendly front desk and restaurant staff and the hotel had a family vibe to it. We will definitely be staying there again and recommend to others. Only feedback to give to the hotel is to provide a fan or air-con in the room as it gets quite hot on very sunny days :)

Would have been good value if breakfast had been included in the price , but room was was comfortable,spacious and quiet. Location very convenient for the town and waterfront. Did not eat at the resort so cannot comment on the quality of food.

I got this booking on a grab a deal site. I think what I paid was fair but I don't think I would pay full price. The staff were friendly and the room was clean and tidy with comfortable beds. We all slept well.

The pool had no heating and was freezing and the spa is in full view of the restaurant/lobby so not very private and put me off using it. We didn't eat at the restaurant because the chef had called in sick - we didn't mind this but others might??

My friend is in a wheelchair and we requested an accessible ground floor room which we got, however the lady suggesting to my wheelchair user/amputee friend as she was climbing out of the car into her wheelchair that she could "just take the couple steps" instead of wheeling around the back if we wanted to which was a bit of a strange thing to say. The lady meant well, she was lovely but it is lucky we are the type to laugh off this comment and not take it to heart or be upset by it.

Great location and very friendly staff, I didn't pay full price for the rooms, as got it on a deal but was worth what I paid, don't think I would want to pay full price. The only problem for me was that the bed was a bit hard and there were no bowls, plates or cutlery so was forced to go out for breakfast which is quite pricey around paihia. Over all though its a nice clean place to stay in a fantastic spot.

The hotel stay was fine for what we paid, but i got a bad rash from the spa pool hence my rating. It didn't look clean, but i assumed they must have to test the water and thought i was just being fussy, so we went in it and i had a shower straight afterwards, but still got the rash which a week later is improved but still got a way to go until it's gone. Other than that the room was pleasant but tired. Bathroom in particular is tired and bath has been repaired with putty which looks unsightly. We paid $75 a night and at that price we were more than happy with our stay (other than the spa). Location is good - a short walk to the shops/restaurants. Staff helpful and friendly. We had wifi included in our stay and it worked well. Usually is $5 for 90 minutes.

We booked this hotel online and thankfully got a pretty good deal because the rooms were not indeed worth the normal rate. The hotel is very outdated, the rooms very 'average' more of a low budget motel style. Our 'pool view' room was located near the carpark and although we could see the pool it was through the carpark.. The beds were comfortable but it wasn't 'hotel quality'. Don't go to the restaurant, the food is average to below standard for the price. Best to walk into the town and choose many of the other better quality restaurants.
We stayed there with our son who is 4 years old and was hoping for a quiet swim, but the roudy teenagers jumping in and out of the pool seemed to frighten him, not to mention the pool and spa area needed an upgrade.
Wouldn't stay there again until they've upgraded the pool complex and the restaurant and pretty much everything.
The staff were very nice though.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms aren't exactly poolside.
