Recently a small group of us wanted some peace, quiet, good food and an easy time. The motel is central to the beach and shops but blessedly quiet. The rooms were large, warm and inviting with plenty of deck space when the sun shone. The manager was a mine of useful information and arranged a fantastic tour to Waitangi for... More

Paul was incredible helpful with advice on places to eat and things to do, he even arranged the tour of Waitangi for us, meaning we rocked up and things were organised! The rooms... More

We had a two night stay at the Bounty Motel, where we found everything good. It is situated in a residential area just a few minutes stroll from the sea and centre of Paihia. The rooms were spacious, clean and furnished in a modern style with a very comfortable bed. Liked the reading light fixed on the headboard. There was... More

Thanks for your comments.I was puzzled when you mentioned "lake front"as we have no lake here only the sea/ocean,so was wondering whether you are reviewing the right place. The unit if you stayed here in was our newly renovated rooms which do have a balcony. One thing though you would have found that we are in easy walking distance to... More

Nice place with an owner that actually cares about whether you had a good stay or not. Rooms are clean and tidy and the internet is very fast and free and depending what deal you are on has a free continental breakfast thrown in which is basic but good. Overall very nice place to spend some time.

This motel is in an excellent location. It is only one block back from the beach & the shops, so it lacks the bay views, but also avoids the people & traffic noise. Room was very large, perhaps the largest we had in 11 days' stay in NZ. Room was very comfortable & well set up. Room had bed lights... More
