We were a party of four adults so we stayed in the two bedroom apartment. It was warm a homie. Nice view from the kitchen window and terrace. The shower was great hot water all the time. It is a little dated but the price was right so it served us well. The owners were very nice and helped with... More

The Austria Motel is an inexpensive place to stay in Paihia, and it isn't fancy. The furnishings and decor are dated, the fixtures aren't modern, and the walls are thin - so noise from the adjoining rooms was a bit of an issue. But it's clean and located very close to the wharf and to shops and restaurants in the... More

We had a 2 bedroom Apt underneath main house. Spare room I slept in very small for 2 beds and I could not shut the door, because I felt enclosed somewhat! Beds comfortable. Living area spacious however. If a little dated, everything clean and well appointed. One block back from Waterfront and shopping centre about 300 yards away, so easy... More

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

Thank you for your review, I am sorry to see you were not happy, we try and keep our motel as comfortable as possible, i.e new lazy boy chairs rather than the "new" tub chairs with low backs, extra small tables around the room, 32" flat screen TV, scissors, mending kits etc.We will check the shower as it is mains...

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 stayed here after driving all the way from Auckland to the 90 Mile Beach. 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!!!)
