We stayed at the Bayview motel in Paiha last weekend for three nights. We absolutely enjoyed our experience and found Graham the proprietor friendly and extremely helpful and willing to go the extra mile. He has extensive local knowledge and shared it generously about restaurants and sights to see. The unit was clean comfortable and well equipped and it had... More

We initially booked for two nights but kept deciding at last minute to extend our stay, Graham shuffled us around giving us the best views, his staff moved our belongings and we ended up staying six nights in four different suites. Hence we are able to provide a very sound review. Graham is very helpful and was very kind to... More

Having arrived at Auckland from Western Australia, we first travelled to Bay of Islands and stayed at Bayview Motel for two nights. It is thoroughly recommended.

We booked on line for another hotel in Paihia and there was an issue and it was double booked. The guy from that motel organised with Bayview Motel to give us a room.

Hi Sarah, I'm pleased you were completely satisfied with your stay at the Bayview and that we could step in and save your day.The double booking at the other motel is not a bad reflection on them.It happens to all of us at some time.On line bookings often are made simultaneously with the letting of the room over the telephone...

We just spent two nights here and had a very pleasant unit with kitchen/dining area, separate bedroom and bathroom. Also had access to outside balcony with water views from our room.

Stayed here 1 night and don't think I'd ever go back. I paid $160 for a waterfront room (non peak season) and the furniture in room is very outdated (wallpaper falling off walls etc) the bed was real uncomfortable and had a terrible sleep. One good thing is the location, nice that it's by the waterfront. There is a spa... More

My husband and I have stayed at Bayview Motel approx. 7 times. We totally love it. We always book the front unit where there is such a great view from your balcony. Everything we need is in walking distance. Also it is spotlessly clean. Just been there this last weekend and can't wait for for our next visit there.
