Casa Bella had all the amenities and was clean and quiet. Distance to the main esplanade was a 10 min slow walk. Overall it was good value and would be happy to stay there again if we went back to Paihia.

Got re-booked here from the hotel next door and it was a blessing in disguise! Nice, clean room with a useful kitchenette and great bathroom. Free unlimited wifi and cable was a bonus as was the pool which we had to ourselves. The architecture and surroundings were nice and did not feel like a simple motel. Easy walk to the... More

We stayed in a king sized double room upstairs it was clean and tidy and nicely presented. This room was modern and spacious and I thank you for finding decaf coffee for me on special request. Our stay was nice.

Fabulous place to stay. Very clean and spacious room set back off the main road but walking distance to shops and beach. Everything is provided. Great shower room. Pleasant staff are very welcoming. Would return for sure.

We were up in Kerikeri for a wedding and decided to stay in Paihia so we could be close to the beach and have more of a chance to relax. The motel is well appointed, clean and very quiet. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The motel was in an excellent location as it was an easy few minutes walk to the village, resturants and beach. The motel was clean and had an updated shower which had good waterpressure. The bed was comfortable. The kitchenette was basic however it had all we needed as we ate out each night.... More

We had a clean and spacious three-person room, the building looks nice and although close to backbacker motels, this place was quiet enough. 10 minutes walk to main street with restaurants and harbour. Free wifi and kitchenette with all you need for a bit of cooking.

Very close to town, a very pleasant 10 minute walk. Room was clean and comfy. Missing was enough hanging space. 4 coathangers between a wall and a heater. Need more storage space. We were there for 6 nights and felt as though I was living out of a suitcase. Apart from that no complaints. Managers were friendly and helpful. Pool... More
