Very reasonably priced. Clean rooms. Helpful staff. Very easy walk to Paihia shops. Spa pool was a bit dirty, swimming pool looked nice but weather wasn't hot enough for swimming. Not the flashest of hotels but was clean and very reasonably priced.

The room was very small with a damp musty smell and there was a lot of rubbish outside the bathroom window. We booked for two nights expecting the restaurant to be open as it was November however were told when we got there that it was closed for both nights, when we questioned this we were told they only cater...

Brilliant service, kind staff, let us take the chess set up to our room after the hotel was closing, a lovely warm spa, cold pool but no problem to us. Comfortable beds, noisy heater, and uncles able shower door, but just put some towels on the ground and that problem is solved. Short walk to the beach, short walk to... More

We stayed for 2 nights as part of a coach tour. Food preparation staff were excellent. Location is good as it is a few minutes walk to everything, local Service Club, Town Centre, Tour offices, Ferries and main wharf. Rooms are large but very old décor with impractical front window and sliding entry door, poorly maintained and only basic fittings... More

I had a very nice stay at this hotel. It is perfect for active travellers. It isn't a 5 star resort, but when you're in the Bay of Islands you're usually out seeing the sites. The rooms are large and clean. The location is a 10 minute walk from the ocean, 5 minutes to the main strip. The staff are... More

We stayed two nights at the Tanoa Paihia Hotel and enjoyed being by the seaside for a couple of days. Our room was comfortable and clean and perfectly positioned in Paihia so we could explore the local area.

A great hotel / resort within 5 min walk to shops, restaurants and wharf. Not bad rooms, a little dark but quiet and good for sleeping in. Car can be parked right outside of room.Nice pool area with spa. Great restaurant community area.
