Very helpful hosts. Great location, clean and tidy but you have really got to do something about the shower temperature lever and those shower heads!!! You can either be scalded, frozen, chase the shower "drops" or "drown" the bathroom.

Thank you for your review. We recently had 4 units converted to gas hot water and the showers now operate at mains pressure. I didn't realise they were not easy to control so I think I will get a plumber to look at them.

We stayed in Paihia as part of ou travels aroun the North Island. The motel is located within walking distance to the Main Street and the cruises around the Bay of Islands.

Our room was very clean and the owners were incredibly helpful in providing us with local information, change for the laundry and also let us print out our tickets for attractions we had booked for the following days.

Our room was incredibly clean (this was important for us) and had all the utensils we needed to make packed lunches and breakfast.

We didn't use the pool but it looked very inviting. Te laundry was super clean and efficient too. Would definitely recommend this motel.

If you are looking for a clean quiet well located place and with not a big dent to your pocket then go for this place. It has a pool, Spa and a tennis court all of which are very well maintained.

Gary and Joy are very warm hosts who will take care of all your needs. We will definately stay here the next time we are in the Bay of Islands.

Quiet location back from the main street and easy to walk everywhere, the beach was just around the corner. The owners were very friendly and nothing was a bother, the motel was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Stayed 2 nights while touring around, the drinking water was good, no need for bottled water here.

We thought this was one of the best places we stayed in and definitely the best value for money. We were very impressed by the cleanliness and the decor. The bed was comfortable (very important) and we loved the spa. We would definitely stay here again!
