Ash Grove Boutique Motel
Ranked #23 of 43 Hotels in Paihia
Reviewed March 24, 2013

As others have said, this motel is a couple of kilometres out of the centre of Pahia, so you really need a car if you stay there, but it suited us fine to be away from the town itself.

Our unit had everything we required and was very clean. There was ample parking, and lovely gardens at the rear of the property with a clean swimming pool. I only went in the pool once during our three night stay though - and it was freezing!

There is an washing machine and tumble dryer for guest use.

We had difficulty connecting to the WIFI signal from inside our room (our unit was the penultimate one from the main building) and the only way to connect up was to go into the garden where the signal strength was good.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful with booking tours for us.

Overall, a very pleasant stay.

So adaptable, we had booked for 2 nights, but were happy to extend our stay for an extra night. Had a room that looked out to the pool, was lovely. Lovely and quiet, out of the town. Bed, room and room really nice in a great setting. Land Lady really friendly and helpful. Lovely pool to swim in.

Stayed here for one night only in the cottage near the road mentioned in a couple of other reviews. To be honest noise was minimal and didn't bother us. Lovely pool set in beautiful garden setting. Great to have Sky as we were able to watch tennis highlights. My only gripe - the spa was out of order. One of the reasons why we booked here. Otherwise very pleasant.

Last minute decision to stay here and there was no problem taking us in. Very handy straight off the highway into the hotel and away from the hussle and bussle. We had been camping for a week and desperate to have a comfy bed, shower and rest up. This was more than we imagined with a gorgeous pool to cool off in. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a meal and the bathroom had an awesome shower.
As an added bonus we were upgraded to a different room and at a less cost because of the time we checked in. It's customer service like this that gives me faith in the kiwi culture again. Thanks to you both. We loved it.

The motel is a few minutes drive out of the centre of Pahia on the main road. After a good welcome we went to our little self contained bungalow near to the road, The motel had a good (though cold when we visited) pool and private spa (you could book). We were made to feel very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.

My only minor worry was that there was a bit of road noise and it was a bit awkward to get out of the motel onto the main road to Pahia. I would not let this put me off booking in again.

Room Tip: If you are very sensitive to road noise make sure you tell the owners when you check in.

Fantastic time at Ashgrove. Rooms were well equipped and very clean. Kids loved the fact that they could watch Sky when they woke up. Awesome location and only 3 minutes from Paihia town. Motel is modern with a great saltwater pool which the lids loved! Nice and quiet in evenings for relaxing outside with a beer and wine! This is a fantastic place to stay and we will definately be back. We had a lovely time only regret is that we didn't book longer!! Thankyou for a great stay! Will recommend to everyone!
