This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in! Stunning views and great location; the suites are beautifully and tastefully decorated and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook for yourself. We enjoyed many meals on the balconies (yes, more than 1) watching the boats come and go on the beautiful bay. It... More

By luck, they had one room left, which turned out to be the most wonderful apartment, right at the front with great views of the bay, even a telescope to watch the boats go sailing by. The apartment was so nice we didn't want to go out. This was by far the best place we had stayed in New Zealand... More

Stayed for two nights in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment. There was a large balcony looking straight out to the Bay The view was stunning. The complex is centrally located and we did not use the car at all. The apartment was modern and the amenities fantastic.

The units at the front have the best views on the Bay. Unit we were in was on the ground floor and looking out across the Bay. Unit is very modern, large (2 bedroom) with full laundry facilities. A very short walk to the jetty where the tour boats leave and right beside all the best restaurants.

An awesome property right on the Waterfront - 2 minutes from the main wharf where the boat excursions all depart from. Very helpful people in the office and a lovely note and chocolates on the table when we arrived. We spent 4 nights here and it was most enjoyable.

We stayed at Paihia Sails which is a few doors down from the waterfront suites but managed by them. The location is right where all the action is. The view is incredible. Facilities were great. Only downside was no proper windows in the bedrooms. The lift made a very strange worrying noise which woke the people in the nearby bedroom... More
