One of the best motels we have stayed in anywhere! Like private chalets, very quiet, well equipped and handily located a couple of minutes walk to local shops, restaurants and facilities. Guest laundry on site. Swimming pool, tennis court, guest BBQ, and free use of bicycles also available. Gary and Jan are perfect hosts, very welcoming and extremely helpful.

Our first experience was calling to warn that we'd be late due to very heavy traffic travelling down from Paihia. They were very friendly and reassured us that they'd still be around if we arrived after reception closed at 8 (although in the event we arrived just in time). The cabin was comfortable with a spacious living area, kitchenette and... More

I stayed here on two occasions for practical rather than tourist reasons and the motel was a perfect base for me. Clean, comfortable, quite modern and with everything I required (no oven but I wouldn’t have used one anyway). Stay was in winter so I didn’t even look at pool (but heating was very good), and the place was quiet... More

Pauanui Pines Motor Lodge made us feel like we were family. We enjoyed staying at the Pauanui Pines. We had a fantastic trip and this location added to the great travel experience. The service was great. It is family run and just a nice homey atmosphere. Highly recommend this location.

The accommodation was lovely and clean and the attention to detail from the owners with the welcome pack was greatly appreciated. We felt they went the extra mile in trying to make your stay enjoyable. Would definitely... More

We were expecting a hotel and what a wonderful surprise this turned out to be. The units were excellent , comfortable and extremely clean. Gary was very helpful explaining how the Barbecue worked and I was surprised that you didn't have to clean it after you used it. Easy walk to the shops and the beach on the other side... More

A very friendly welcome awaits you from the reception staff. A quiet town/village with a (tiny, quaint runway down the centre!) The local scenery is beautiful and there is lots to do during the day, however, when the sun begins to go down, the pavements are rolled up and a nightly hibernation occurs.

We had the friendliest reception and we were offered lots of advise on routes and good places to visit and provided us with a very useful map. The chalet was excellent and well equipped with a lovely lounge area, a well laid out bathroom and a separate bedroom. The location on the edge of the Coramandel peninsula, is beautiful. The...
