Very pleasant stay, set back from the shoreline by a block, eliminating road noise impact. Very tidy spacious rooms, clean and well maintained. Will definitely return again when next in Paihia. Thanks

The Admirals view is an awesome place to stay especially the spa bath suite my wife and I absolutely enjoyed it with a kitchen to cook our own breakfasts and dining out is right around the corner.. Definitely returning to stay there in future, great value, great hosts.

Nice clean room with all the facilities you could need. Good location close to waterfront, within walking distance of town, shops, cafes... More

We booked an apartment suite at Admiral's View because a google search informed me that it was one of the few motels in Paihia in our price range that allowed 4 guests in two bedrooms (which I thought was strange, but that's another story). Despite the sight-unseen nature of our booking, we certainly were not disappointed.The two rooms were each... More

We booked two rooms for two nights and could not fault it. The rooms were spacious, clean, light and well equipped for a short stay. The owners were fantastic and a great source of local information as to where to eat, and places to visit that would suit our family. The chocolate shop in Kerikeri was a treat - thanks... More

Stayed in the downstairs two-bedroom room. Excellent value for money in winter - not sure what the summer rates are but at $125 per night this was a bargain in June in Paihia. Room very well appointed, full Sky TV (except movie channels), double sinks in bathroom and excellent soundproofing. Hostel nearby loudly celebrating rugby win in street - we... More

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
