“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

We booked a cottage at the Ash Grove Boutique Hotel, but when we arrived we received an upgrade to a family suite. This had a separate bedroom, living and dining areas and a nice kitchen. Lots of room - wish we had more than one night there. The pool area was beautiful with lots of flowers around. It was very quiet - a little ways out of town.

Stayed for five nights at Ash Grove. The cottage unit we had was like a hotel suite in a five star. Beautiful french doors to a charming backyard, complete with an outdoor grill and swimming pool. Laundry room for your threads and a whole library of DVDs to play on the big screen tv in your room. Kitchen was excellent well equipped to make many delicious meals. Grounds and cottages were very clean, owners charming, and location was away from the hurly-burley of downtown Pahia. We loved it.

We enjoyed three nights at Ash Grove Motel. The units were very clean and well equipped and being 3 km from Paihia we were able to enjoy peace and quiet. The owners were very helpful and gave us very good suggestions for spending our time in the beautiful Bay of Islands. I would be happy to recommend this motel to other travellers.

We enjoyed two nights at the Ash Grove four weeks ago. It is between the village of Paihia and Haruru Falls and very easily accessible to both. the owners, Carl and Stuart were friendly and accommodating. They gave us great suggestions on places to eat. I like the fact that there is an on-site laundry near the office. The rooms were spotless and well equipped. We didn't use the spa or pool, but both are provided. I would recommend this if you're heading for Paihia.

We enjoyed a very pleasant 4 nights here. It was well equipped, clean and spacious. It is tucked away some 3 km from the town in its own quiet corner. The pool and the garden are a bonus. Would recommend it to other couples.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Travelling as a family of four and two couples we booked early to avoid disappointment, and were allocated three adjacent studios overlooking the pool. The rooms were comfortably furnished and roomy. The kitchen areas and bathrooms were well equipped and the everything was spotlessly clean. Carol and Stuart were excellent hosts. Stuart had met my wife and I at Keri Keri airport as promised and he was able to offer a wealth of advice on places to see and how best to get around. Ash Grove is located a few minutes drive from Paihia, and although it is by the roadside it is very peaceful and quiet. The pool area is delightful and the spa was welcoming after a long day's sightseeing and a dip in the swimming pool. I would definitely recommend Ash Grove Motel to anyone.

We really enjoyed staying here. Clean comfortable and extremely helpful hosts Carol and Stuart were always available to answer questions and give helpful advise. The cooking facilities were clean and easy to work with. The crockery gorgeous. The cottage has a front and back lanai (porch) which each got either the morning or afternoon sun. Very Eco friendly, organic soaps and dish washing liquid. You need a car and the gorgeous town of Keri Keri is only 20 minutes away. Paihia is 5 minutes away. Easy access to super markets. Restaurants are quite expensive in Paihia. Preferred to cook at home. Was very quiet and peaceful. Great wifi access. So many places offer free wifi and then it is hardly usable. This wifi is strong and reliable. There is also a guest laundry. A spa. And a swimming pool. Grounds are clean and neat. You can borrow books and DVDs

Room Tip: No fitness center, no restaurant, I didn't know how to unclick... Sorry.
