really lovely staff but fail to see how it meets the "well appointed" claims. Not even a bottle opener, 1 teaspoon and a telly that was old. no sky available, 4 almost trusty channels. Room had been well used and was tired. Nice (older) spa pool and the bed was decent and it was clean. But honestly only 1 step up from a backpackers not even motel standard. Shower was great.

Room Tip: it is central, large amount of rooms so let staff know if you need a quiet area.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

We used a *grab one* voucher which offered 'pay for 1 night stay for 2 nights'. What a disappointment to not be able to watch the All Blacks v South Africa rugby in the comfort of our room. It was pouring with rain and the wind was blowing gales and we had to make our way along the wet corridor to the public lounge to watch. They dont open the diningroom for dinner and also no breakfast. The reason given was that the hotel was too quiet at this time of the year (Sept 2012) Never to return!!!

We normally stay in Motels, as we like having a kitchenette.. but Wotif had a special so we grabbed it.
Paihia is a lovely place and a great place to stay. This Hotel is clean and modern. a decent shower. and lovely soft sheets!
only 3 channels on the telly... but I guess that will change once freeview comes in?
The tv in the lounge didn't offer much more.. unless you're into sport :)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

I stayed here as part of a tour group. The location of the hotel was good, with just a few minutes walk to the centre of town. The rooms were warm and beds comfy. A particular highlight was the powerful shower with hot water in good supply. Unfortunately the breakfast was disappointing with a poor selection available. Being out of season we also found that the town’s shops and restaurants closed early, so finding dinner after being out on an all-day tour was a tad tricky. Unfortunately the hotel’s restaurant wasn’t open during our stay.

Overall a good sleep had by all, I’d consider staying here again.

Stayed here as part of the Kirra Tour. Pleasant hotel in great location within 5 min walk of centre of town. Room Decor seemed a little tired, as was the bathroom. Large room with adequate facilities. Only 3 TV channels. Friendly staff. Dinner was good - pleasant and reasonable taste and choices (buffet style). May choose somewhere different if i do visit the bay of islands again.

Great location with only a 2 minute walk down the road to the township. Room was beautifully set up, with beautiful bedding. Has a spa but pool is not heated and not really suited for children. Didn't have a chance to try the buffet dinner or breakfast, but what was served looked great!

Overall, highly recommended A+
