Stayed with my wife whilst diving in area. Staff very friendly and helpful, location very close to water front with lots of shops and restaurants, rooms are not 5 star but are very clean and comfortable. Cooked breakfast is available from 6:30 am and is freshly cooked at a local restaurant and delivered to your room. If you want the... More

We had a very pleasant week long stay at the Tui. Our children enjoyed their 'holiday home' and loved playing on the trampoline and the playground at the adjacent Paihia School. The location was great - just a short walk to town. Everything we needed in the kitchen was provided, the beds comfortable, wi-fi reception excellent and the shower had... More

The motel is in a good location in Paihia, only a few minutes walk from the seafront (but so is everything). The motel looks a little tired, my unit had some unusual renovation features (see picture). No A/C, but the building itself is cool inside and windows can be opened. WiFi is included, but was very unreliable in my unit.... More

We just spent three nights here and we loved Paihia. The hotel offers great space and convenience for the price but it is a little dated. That being said, the owner Rochine couldn't have been any nicer and more accommodating. We would stay here again for the location, space and price.

Location is good in that it is quiet and only a short walk to shops and supermarket. Watangi grounds and ferry to Russell is a short drive away. We had the unit on 2nd floor which was nice though the access is via a staircase at the back of the block. Lodge Manageress seems very busy as we only saw... More

This motel is an older style building that has completed some upgrades but in need of some further tlc. The host & cleaning staff were pleasant & helpful. Units were kept clean but the shower units need anti slip mats or strips to prevent slippage on the shower floor. Our unit was #2 on the bottom & when people flushed... More

Friendly hosts, great location, just minutes walk to shopping, restaurants and waterfront. We had a two bedroom unit it was clean and comfortable. It was a typical seaside holiday apartment, simple and functional. Quiet location even though close to town center. Would recommend as a place to consider for your stay in Paihia.

A comfortable and clean motel that is a short flat walk to the shops and food stores. Next door to a school which was handy for the playground, motel had a trampoline. Great hosts who were super helpful even before we arrived.
