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

We stayed here for 2 brilliant nights. We arrived a couple of hours early ahead of check in but were told this was no problem and could get the room straight away! Then we found out we had been upgraded (bonus!). We had such a lovely warm greeting from Craig who gave us a quick lowdown on the surrounding area,... More

The place is excellent... Nice quite location, well furnished 2 bedroom apartment in a quiet little town. The rooms were clean, spacious, well equipped (with a smart TV). Free wifi was the fast. Could borrow the bikes to move around town. The hosts were very helpful and friendly.

The 6 of us got a 2 bedroom unit and a studio room. The rooms were clean, spacious and well-equipped. Very close to the town centre. Hosts were friendly and helpful too. We totally enjoyed it and would highly recommend Admiral Lodge :)

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
