We stayed two nights here and booked ahead. Our cabin was lovely and had a great sea view. Although not serviced while we were there, the bins were emptied.
A very short walk into Paihia where all the shops and restaurants were and we were given ideas of what to see and do by the very welcoming owner. The internet worked great and the bed was comfortable. Got a bit of a crick in my neck watching the TV sidewards but it was no big deal.
The bonus cat was Smooch who came to say hello to us on our second day. Orange cats were a theme of our trip to New Zealand, we saw them everywhere and Smooch was very friendly.
I used the laundry while we were there and it was brand new and not too expensive ($2 a go).
Stay here if you want something a little bit different with all the mod cons.
