Really good motel close to bay at Paihia and run by a charming couple. Rooms are large and well appointed and most importantly, set back from the road, so are therefore very quiet. Walking distance to heart of Paihia, ferry to Russell and all the boat cruises. Represents good value for money.

The hotel was relatively dated but offered all the basic services required. Laundry services on site for a small fee. Only 400mb of data free. Nice balcony. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The T.V. channels were only free to air (no Sky TV). The location was good, only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, restaurants/shops and the ferry...

Small family owned hotel. Very friendly owners - managers. Home feeling. Our room was very clean and well maintained. The hotel is about 400 meters ( 450Yards) from the city center and the beach, while we felt to be in a very nice garden, with large flowers blooming in our terrace. (a huge one by the way).

This is unfortunately the first negative I have written but we were so disappointed with our stay at the Alfa motel. The one positive is that the motel is in a great location which is very close to the beach and the town centre. The room itself is incredibly dated, as are the facilities inside it, and the room wasn't...

Unfortunately Alfa Boutique Motel lost our booking. We arrived to be told no there was no booking in our name, however our booking was later found. The owners found other alternative accommodation and paid us the difference in cash. I am sure this is a one off genuine mistake, it was a shame we couldn't stay.

Let me start by saying this is my first one star rating review I have ever written. The location of the hotel is great. It's just a walk to restaurants and the wharf. it was cute and a few updates could make it a good place to stay. When we got into our room everything was so dated and dingy....

Good location near the centre of Paihia. Very nice owner Wendy. Rooms OK, clean, but would need some refreshment. Free WiFi. No breakfasts, but the apartment includes a kitchenette with a basic equipment. Parking facility under the building. Available also a wash machine.

From the outside, unassuming, however absolute delight. Although old, all the amenities are provided and are extremely comfortable. Very friendly owners Peter and Wendy add to the charm and delight of the place.

We stayed here for four nights. The proprietors were great to deal with. Even though this is an older motel it has a lovely character about it. Rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 rating was the balcony is shared and the guy in the room next to us...
