We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for the Paihia Classic (Russel to Paihia swim) weekend. We had plenty of space for master 3, miss 5 and us. The room was nothing fancy but it was large and had everything we needed. The pool area was lovely but the water was still a bit cold (early November). We didn't try the hottub but others seemed to be enjoying that. There was a big grassed area for the kids to run around with some play equipment and the biggest trampoline we've ever seem. The location is a bit out of town so it took us about 15 min to walk in but we could do it in about 7 min without the kids. Our only issue was that the walls were thin and other guests were being noisy until after 3 am so sleep was a problem. So long as other guests are not so rude, this is a great place to stay with the family at a reasonable price. Beds were on the soft side but still OK for us.
