I got a really good deal online, but even the walk In rate for this time of the year is excellent value. I was given unit 8 which is on the top floor and faced the Bay. Even though weather wasnt good it was so relaxing sitting looking at the sea. The unit was clean and spacious for a studio... More

Talk about "room with a view".. not many accomodations will match the scenery from the premium rooms here...Boats,vehicles,strollers all pass by to or from downtown Paihia. Comfy,convenient and relatively quiet,you are a 2min walk from the main wharf and shops of Paihia..The walk is well lit so evening strolls to dinner or take outs can be very pleasant.. Sure it's...

My husband and I made a reservation for the Friday of Waitangi Day weekend. Coming from Canada, unfortunately we had no clue why prices where so steep. We paid $210 for 1 night in a room that was right next to the office. If their phone rang, we looked around our room for the phone. If someone, pressed the buzzer... More

This motel is on the main road which means you have a brilliant view of the Paihia water but we never heard any road traffic noise. The motel is well appointed and clean. It is close to the wharf and bus station and supermarket. The only 2 flaws we found was the lack of water pressure in the shower for... More

We were at Bayview Motel during New Zealand summer time (January 2016) for 3 days., Pros: ● Overall, the place looks clean. ● The owner is a very nice person, but this does not surprise as it is New Zealand. ●The views are very nice. ● Paihia is a small, small town and the vast majority of the hotels/motels are...

Thankyou for such a high rating 10 out of 10. The view of the bay is great from the higher level apartments .So when booking asking for apartments 1,2,8 or 9 will really get you the best views and sunrises. For Thai and Indian meals Greens has got to be the best choice.So pleased you enjoyed their food. We always... More
