We originally booked 3 nights to stay at Falls Motel but loved it so much we cut out our next destination to stay a few nights longer! Paihia as a place is stunning and we could not have chosen better accomodation. The owners were amazing, especially Andre, who felt like a friend by the time we left. Nothing was ever a problem and he could not be more helpful with every aspect of our stay. The room we stayed in was fantastic, immaculate, spacious and spotlessly clean. We had a patio that overlooked the amazing Haruru Falls and the pool. We had a day or two of rain during our stay but still found plenty to do. I would recommend this place to anybody staying in Paihia. I honestly feel that it is overlooked because on the main strip in Paihia there are hotels/motels left, right and centre but just a few minutes away from this you will find Falls Motel.The views, the location, the hosts and the amazing value for money meant that our stay here was perfect. We are travelling around NZ at the moment and have so far stayed in alot of places. Falls Motel has squashed every single one of them, nothing as yet has beat it and I honestly don't think it will. We are already tailoring the end of our trip to go back and stay! So remember, if you are going to Paihia and want a beatuiful experience, follow the signs to Haruru Falls and just before you get there you will find this hidden gem. Happy Travels :-)
