Highly recommended
Had stayed here before about 11 years ago - and this visit did not disappoint
Spacious units equipped with everything you could need. Very clean and well serviced.
Staff were were very friendly and welcoming
Great location - off main road so quieter but within a couple hundred metres of town centre and the water, ferries etc.
Fabulous motel

This Motel was first rate from the wonderful hosts, the spotless unit, the well organised recycling, the locality, and the equipment, from cutlery to ironing board that was provided to make our stay very comfortable. There is a laundry for guests.

If you are mobility challenged ask for a downstairs unit.
In spite of its proximity to the centre of Paihia, it was quiet, whilst providing easy walking access to all that Paihia can offer.

It was a home away from home! Great hosts! Comfy beds! Our tv remote was missing when we arrived but Greg found it no worries! Spa was relaxing! It's a very short stroll down to great restaurants, bars, and shops! Although we've stayed several places in Paihia we now found somewhere we can take the kids! :)

We thoughly enjoyed our stay here! We had a large bedroom, large living area with kitchen and a large bath...all extremely clean. The hosts were very welcoming, and assisted us, several months before our arrival, in offering suggestions on where to spend New Year's Eve. The motel is very quiet and close to all of the things we wanted to do in and around Paihia. I would stay here again in a minute and highly recommend it to anyone. Great job Suzie and Greg...keep up the good work in Paihia!!

Room Tip: Get a room with the kitchen. There is a small grocery store next door and you can buy stuff for bre...

We had such a nice stay here. The hosts were so friendly and welcoming and we were made to feel at home. The unit we had was immaculate. It was so modern and comfortable.
Its just a 5 minute walk to the main street, buts it also in a quiet spot.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
