If The Retreat is rated only 15th of the hotels in Paihia, either the first 14 are out of this world, or the reviewers are being over-generous, since The Retreat is simply superb. Set in maturely cultivated grounds, the apartments look out over the Bay of Islands with stunning views. The owners were very welcoming and able to provide loads of good advice, beds are comfortable, the kitchen area well supplied, fresh towels were provided each day, the balcony is a lovely place to sit, and there is free wi-fi. It is a couple of ks. outside the town of Paihia, which would be a problem without a car, but otherwise is a distinct advantage to be in such a quiet and beautiful location. The only niggle? The shower had low pressure, and the hot water tank was stretched for 4 people, but otherwise this reasonably priced hotel should be considered by anyone coming to the area.
