I was worried after reading some negative reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very spacious and clean. The location is not the ideal but its still walking distance to the beach front. The swimming pool is very small, do not be fooled by the pictures. We visited during Easter and we were late to check out also,... More

This would not be a favourite place to stay. However the room was clean, but it was definitely in need of some refurbishment. The room I stayed in was ground floor and there was ample car parking. The hotel is a five minute walk from the town centre, and easily locatable

Stopped off here on the way from Auckland to Cape Reinga. Right in the Bay of Islands. This is a beautiful place to visit. The hotel itself is a lovely little place. We had a room on the outside of the hotel. I belive that there are rooms in the hotel itself as well. However, the room had everything you... More

The rooms smelt and felt damp, the bathroom was very basic, the foam rubber beds were uncomfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful but we found it all a dreary experience. It is not on the waterfront, but is only 5-10 mins walk away.

The service is great. People friendly and helpful, they were kind and took time to talk about the places to visit and hike. Jacuzzi is a big plus during Fall. However, the rooms look dark, TV is not that great, no WiFi included and the breakfast is just ok (similar to a low budget hotel in USA) which is sad... More

We arrived very late and there was no one at the reception but they kindly left the keys for us. Rooms were lovely and clean and we were very tired so it was welcoming! The breakfast bit is problematic. We missed the hot breakfast because we didn't know we had to come in at 9 am although it was shown... More

Positives: Good service - staff were really friendly. One guy in particular helped us a lot when we were struggling with the paid internet, which was much appreciated. Spacious and decently clean room and bathroom. Good facilities in the room - fan, small fridge, TV. Powerful shower, some basic toiletries. Really thorough welcome binder. Great location - very close to... More

Over the course of our holiday we stayed 8 nights at the Tanoa hotel which was clean comfortable and good value. We made use of the excellent laundry, the hot tub and small swimming pool. The hotel is located about a 5-10 minute walk from the centre of Paihia and beaches in a quiet location with plenty of parking. The... More

We found Tanoa Hotel, Paihia to be great value for money. We paid $145 for one nights accomodation and that included a cooked breakfast which was very tasty. The rooms were modern, attractive, and very clean, as were the rest of the facilities. Fabulous sized bathrooms.The pool and spa area was lovely, and there was a great family area next... More

We had booked ahead for two nights and on arrival our room was horrible - it smelt of mould and was so dark the light had to be on all the time. We complained and were given an 'upgrade'. The room thankfully didn't smell, but was just as dark, drab and tired as the last offering. The polite gentleman on... More

I'm sorry that our hotel and services didn't meet your expectation. We are a 3.5 Star establishment certified by Qualmark, the national standards rater and recognised internationally. We are also probably the most competitive price-wise in this area and offer a great product for the price and, we don't pretend to be anything other than what we are, which is,... More
