If you are looking for accommodation in the centre of Paihia then look no further. The Motel has spacious well appointed rooms with all necessary facilities including nice balconies. The owners are friendly and informative about local facilities. The Motel is within walking distance of the Wharf , Shops. Bars and restaurants.

Really a back to the 80's motel with a shower/ shub that is low ( you have to bend to let the water on your hair) and low water pressure. Two rocking chairs to sit in and an old fashioned bed cover. Cannot fault the cleanliness though. We were in the Vienna room which was next to the road and... More

This motel in Paihia provides exactly what is advertised. It is roomy, with a lovely balcony and all the facilities you could possibly want. It is exceptional value for accommodation so centrally located. From here you can visit Waitangi (close enough to walk), Russell (short ferry ride) and Kerikeri, as well as all the fun to be had in Paihia... More

We arrived to the Austria Motel after spending the previous night jet lagged and sleeping in the car after the journey to the 90 Mile Beach. (Another story!!!) The motel was welcoming and the rooms were big and clean. Can genuinely say that it felt... More

The owner was wonderful and gave us lots of ideas of what not to miss in NZ's north. We had a great room, on the front of the units, with a large deck out front, and a small one to the side...sat out every afternoon and evening. Everything was nice and clean and we even got REAL plunger coffee, rather... More

Very good location and services that meet all our needs. The free Wi-Fi was there but the signal strength was poor and variable. Ok to do email, whereas not sufficient to surf the net, especially with the dropout.
