We booked for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Our room was spotlessly clean and was very comfortable with lovely views of the Bay of Islands. The area was very quiet but only a few minutes walk into town restaurants and shops as well as the pier for the Russell ferry. The reception staff were very friendly...

Tucked away, just outside Paihia this B&B provides a welcome retreat with stunning views out across the magnificent Bay of Islands. Mike the host provides spotless, comfortable, well appointed rooms with good quality beds and a first class breakfast to start the day. Possibly a little far to walk to the cafes and restaurants of Paihia but only a few...

We pulled into this motel based entirely on the location without a booking and without checking TripAdvisor. We were warmly welcomed, given our choice of rooms and immediately felt at home. On noticing that we both had colds our lovely host delivered extra tissues, tea bags and fresh lemons to our room. Our self contained, recently renovated studio apartment (No...

We booked for 2 nights but unfortunately had to cancel at on the morning of the first night, we were charged 1 nights accomodation, Thought this was unreasonable as it was due to circumstances out of our control that we could not fulfil the booking.

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...

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...

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...

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...
