We recently stayed at this motel while visiting Paihia in New Zealand and our experience was excellent. The room had ocean view and was a bit off the beaten track to give us a very quiet and relaxing stay. A barbecue and usage of bicycles at no extra charge added to the value of this stay. The owners and staff...

We had the suite next to the reception - it had a small kitchen and washing machine in a utility room, which would be good if you want to self-cater and are spending time on the beach. However as we were only there for Waitangi Day, we didn't want to unpack our suitcases, so the only way to avoid this...

Thank you for taking the time to place a review. The Garden rooms are smaller and we suggest if you prefer space to book the more spacious options of the Ground Floor or Balcony Studios. If you are thinking of coming to Paihia for Waitangi Day we suggest booking well ahead, we are already heavily booked for next year's event!

We stayed in one of the balcony rooms for five nights while we explored the Bay of Islands. The rooms are clean, spacious and very comfortable, a perfect place to rest after a long day. The Lodge is in a quiet location but still within a short walk of the centre of the town. The owner/manager was very friendly and...

We stayed three nights at Admirals Lodge, we were in room four. I have to say the room was spacious, and very comfortable, everything has been thought about. I found it to be spotlessly clean, a great kitchen area, and a splendid en suite with a fantastic shower. We really enjoyed our stay in a Paihia, and after hot days...

Our deluxe studio was on the upper floor and we had a partial view of the water. We liked the spaciousness of the room which really helped in relaxing during our week long stay. The Lodge is handy to the beachfront and appears well maintained and managed. Overall, very comfortable.

Room was neat and tidy and everything we needed. Staff were excellent and good parking. Easy walk into the main part of town but it also had a good bottle shop, cafe and small supermarket close by. Room was large and we were on the top floor with nice seats and view of the bay.

Fantastic place to stay and wonderful hosts. The room was clean and well appointed and had a nice view from our deck!! Great place to stay in Pahia, with a short walk to town, highly recommend. The lodge is located just off the main street and therefore makes for a peaceful sleep.

We were met on arrival by a very nice gentleman who explained that our room was not ready and we should return around 1pm. On coming back he explained to guest laundry (self service and a boon) and showed us to or room on the first floor. The room was spacious with double and single bed together with a kitchenette....

The Admirals View Lodge is in a great location just on the out skirts of Paihia Town. The lodge is mid range accomodation but clean and comfortable. I would not recommend the studio room it is right under the owners residents you hear everything.

Thank you for taking the time to place your review. Yes the garden rooms are beneath the owners accommodation and you do get noise transference from upstairs, but between the hours of 7pm and 7am this is minimal. The rooms are priced appropriately for this and as such are some of the cheapest available in town. If you are noise...

Great hosts, very helpful and friendly and able to accommodate us at short notice. Couldn't ask for better. The room/s were spotless, the beds just so comfortable, and the showers good hot and strong. We love this place. Very good location for Paihia without the waterfront hubbub and noise from the backbackers places, pubs/bars and restaurants. Great for a jump...

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
