This is so late! We arrived at the Nautilus Resort via a huge detour in September 2012 and were ushered into a spacious, well-appointed and warm!! room (it was bucketing down outside). There was no outside noise to be heard in our 3 night stay, and we were really well located. Walking distance to the main shops, well-placed for the Treaty House, and on the road out of Paihia to Cape Reinga in the north. Our hosts Rae and Steve were nothing short of wonderful - full of advice for an excellent local restaurant, and where to go that was off the beaten track (including local glow worm caves that even Bill Gates has visited, at a fraction of the price of the more famous caves and a local kauri stand). Oh - and the supermarket next door was a boon. Highly recommended.
