My wife and I enjoyed a very comfortable stay with Denis, Aileen and Coral, who could not have been more helpful, thank you. We stayed for 4 nights after I was released from Whangarei Hospital, where they had fixed my broken ankle. Our accessible unit was spot on, well located for us zooming into town in my wheelchair! Thanks again.

We stayed for a few nights whilst we explored the Bay of Islands. The room was clean and well equipped with a large comfortable bed. We had the room next to the reception which tended to be a little noisy in the morning. If you want to avoid noise I suggest you ask for a different room. The upstairs rooms...

A gorgeous little slice of heaven in a great location in Paihia. Hands down the cleanest motel I have ever stayed in. Super friendly staff who went the extra mile. We stayed in a two bedroom studio with our one year old and our bathroom had a spa bath which got well used! Lovely decor and everything on hand that...

Lovely location across from the beach and a small wooded preserve at the end of the main street. Exceptionally clean. One of the nicest bathrooms we have encountered. The bed was absolutely the most comfortable bed to sleep in.Wish we had it at home! Little kitchenette just perfect for anything you would want to do. Every room has wonderful floor...

Arlene and Coral (as Coral affirmed) are the best of Kiwi birds we met. We needed, at very short notice, a disabled friendly unit and the Anchorage obliged. The location and facilities provided for a wheelchair bound Aussie bird were excellent. It can't be described as "quaint" (below); rather as up to date and comfortable.

We randomly picked this motel by driving past. They had a room that fit us all and and what a wonderful surprise it was. The room was beautifully presented with wonderful modern décor. Great service and the advice to go next door for breakfast was a bonus as Alfresco provided the best service we have ever received. Would highly recommend...
