We have been trying to pick accommodation by drive-by (forgot about trip advisor) and we win some and we loose some. This one was a winner! We got a downstairs studio room which was spacious, clean, well equipped and well furnished. Motel managers were friendly and helpful. We loved our stay. Very relaxing. Would definitely come again.

Our second time here at the motel - we do prefer the balcony studios over the garden- level rooms because we feel they are brighter. Also, you have better views. The large balcony is a shared one for 3 rooms in a row. The kitchenette is well equipped and there's additional stuff in a community room that doubles as laundry...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such an informative review. We agree wholeheartedly that we need to constantly update and keep the rooms fresh and modern. We have started with the carpet and furnishings and next year we'll be getting stuck into some of the bigger jobs like bathrooms. We hope to see you again so...

The motel was clean and decent size but not the most spacious motel I have stayed at on my 3 week trip through NZ. It was clean and up to date. There was a small kitchenette which had everything you need. The bathroom was clean. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Wifi worked well. Do the Hole in...

Thank you so much for posting your informative review. Our garden rooms are on the smaller side and if you want space we recommend our sunny balcony rooms which are double the size with a full kitchenette. The garden rooms are very economical on the budget and you have access to a BBQ with side burner if you would like...

Good clean and spacious studio room, very modern furniture and fittings, seating bench outside on shared terrace facing the evening sun. Motel is in a quiet position but within easy reach of the beach, restaurants and bars. Good advice from owner on where to eat out and trips to take, with an extensive range of tourist leaflets in reception.

We stayed for three nights at the Admiral's View, a great little motel, our room being clean and spacious with lovely views. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Craig was very helpful and friendly. It was a short walk into the town centre, walking along the water's edge a delight. Would definitely recommend this lovely motel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Friendly 4+star self-contained and serviced motel in a central location. Relax and enjoy the view to the sea from the sunny balcony or patio of most units. Admirals View Lodge is well located for walking to all your Paihia activities and attractions - plus tours pick up daily from the motel. We are close to the Paihia beach (only 1 block, 250m) but benefit from a peaceful location away from Paihia's main road. Let us help you plan your trip to see the Bay of Islands and the famous Hole in the Rock. Take a bus on an exciting journey to Cape Reinga or enjoy the thrill of swimming with dolphins. Enjoy a ferry ride to Romantic Russell or soak up the history at Waitangi Treaty Grounds. ... more   less
