My partner and I decided on a last minute trip from Auckland to Paihia over Christmas/New Year and most properties were booked.
We found this one on Wotif and it ticked all the boxes and seemed to do the trick
Reception was very friendly and the recently renovated room was very nicely presented.
Separate bedroom with a comfortable pullout bed in the lounger area. Large bathroom (shower only) was clean and tidy with nice soaps
There's a small kitchen area where you can do some light cooking but they ask you not to cook anything "odiferous" like fish - which is reasonable I guess but as many people catch fish in this region, it's a bit limiting.
Quick walk to main pier and restaurants as well as Waitangi. This also meant there was a lot of foot traffic outside the room's beach views.
The only thing preventing me from giving a higher rating is value for money. The room rate was too high (in my mind) for what you got, but what you got was nice.
