I (from germany) stayed there again 2 nights in Dezember and had my greatest stay due our trip through New Zealand.
You get a great appartement for cheap money, free Internet and accses to a collection of great movies for free!
Also you have a carpark spot under your room so it's save at every wheater and you can leave it ther while you're on trips (if you still have booked the room of course i think).
I had an great apartement with a full equipped kitchen and with a teflon pan! (If you book one of these). There are also facilites to wash your clothes and dry them.
For my stay i asked Barara (the owner) for things worth to see around and she gave me some great tips and maps from the area around.
Tip: last time I bookd a 90 Miles Beach tour and a shipping tour through the bay to the famous hole in the rock and had lots of fun!
If i had any questions or something i could ask Barbara everytime. She even called me in the morning to make sure i'm awake so i don't miss my bus for my booked tour.
What more could you want?
I think because of the lovely owner, the great rooms and the stunning view to the bay in Paihia this is still one of the best Motels in New Zealand!
